System Overview
General Information
Congratulations on your ownership of a First Alert Professional
Security System. You've made a wise decision in choosing it, for it
represents the latest in security protection technology today,
including microcomputer technology to monitor all system status.
Basically, this system offers you three forms of protection: burglary,
fire, and emergency. Your system may consist of at least one keypad
which provides full control of system operation, various sensors such
as motion detectors and door and window sensing devices, plus a
selected number of strategically placed smoke or combustion detectors
designed to provide early warning in case of fire. Your system may
also have been programmed to automatically transmit alarm or status
messages over the phone lines to a central alarm monitoring station.
All system functions are controlled by your keypad(s), which are
described in the next section, ABOUT THE KEYPADS.
Zones
Your system's sensing devices have been assigned to various "zones".
For example, the sensing device on your Entry/Exit door may have
been assigned to zone 06, sensing devices on windows in the master
bedroom to zone 10, and so on. These zone numbers will appear on the
display when an alarm or trouble condition occurs.
Burglary Protection
Your FA148C provides five modes of burglary protection: STAY,
NIGHT-STAY, AWAY, INSTANT, and MAXIMUM, and allows you to
bypass selected zones while leaving the rest of the system armed. You
must turn on (arm) the burglary protection portion of your system
before it will sense burglary alarms. The system also provides a
CHIME mode, for alerting users to the opening of protected doors and
windows while the system is disarmed. Refer to the other sections of
this manual for procedures for using these features.

Security Codes
At the time of installation, you were assigned a personal four-digit
security code, known only to you. You must enter the security code
when arming and disarming the system, and when performing other
system functions. As an additional safety feature, other users who do
not need to know your code can be assigned different security codes.
Refer to the Security Codes section for procedures on adding security
codes to the system.
Fire Protection
The fire protection portion of your security system (if used) is always
active and will sound an alarm if a fire condition is detected. Refer to
the Fire Alarm System section for important information concerning
fire protection, smoke detectors, and planning emergency exit routes
from the premises.
Alarms
When an alarm occurs, both the keypad and external sounders will
sound, and the keypad will display the zone(s) causing the alarm. If
your system is connected to a central monitoring station, an alarm
message will also be sent. To stop the alarm sounding, simply disarm
the system.
-5-
System Overview (cont'd)
Cross Zoning
Cross zoning is used to prevent false alarms. Up to 10 zones can be linked
together in your security system (programmed by the installer). If any of
the 10 linked zones faults in the armed state, the system will wait to see
if a second zone faults within a programmed period of time. When the
second zone faults, alarms will be sent out for both zones (if
programmed), the alarm bell will sound, and the two zones in alarm will
be displayed on the keypad.
However, if another fault does NOT occur within the programmed period
of time, only a Trouble report will be sent to the monitoring station and
no message will be displayed on the keypad until the system is disarmed.
Memory of Alarm
When an alarm condition occurs, the keypad displays the number(s)
of the zone(s) that caused the problem, and displays the type of alarm
(e.g., FIRE, ALARM). It remains displayed until it is cleared by
disarming the system (see the Disarming and Silencing Alarms
section).
Phone Access & Voice Response Capability
Your system may include a voice module that permits you to access
the system via a TouchTone phone, either on-premises or by call-in
when away. The phone access feature will enable you to do the
following:
• Receive synthesized voice messages over the telephone regarding
the status of the security system.
• Arm and disarm the system and perform most function commands
via the telephone, with voice confirmation provided after each
command entry.
Paging Feature
If the paging feature has been programmed for your system, your
pager will respond to certain conditions as they occur in your system.
Your pager will display code numbers indicating the type of condition
that has occurred. Refer to the Paging Feature section for more
detailed information.
-6-
Entry/Exit delays
General Information
The FA148C has preset time delays, known as exit delay and entry
delay. Whenever you arm your system, exit delay gives you time to
leave through the designated exit door without setting off an alarm.
Exit delay begins immediately after entering any arming command,
and applies to all modes of arming protection. If it is programmed, a
slow beeping will sound throughout the exit delay period, with fast
beeps during the last 10 seconds.
Entry Delay gives you time to disarm the system when you re-enter
through the designated entrance door. But you must disarm the
system before the entry delay period ends, or an alarm will occur. The
keypad beeps during the entry delay period, reminding you to disarm
the system. There are two entry delays (if programmed). The first is
for your primary entrance and the second can be used for a secondary
entrance, where a longer delay is required to give you enough time to
walk to the keypad to disarm the system.
You can also arm the system with no entry delay at all by using either
the INSTANT or MAXIMUM arming mode. These modes provide
greater security while you are on the premises.
See your installer for your delay times (you may want to record them
below).

Entry/Exit delay (cont'd)
Exit Alarms
To minimize false alarms sent to the alarm monitoring company,
your system may have been programmed for this feature. Ask
your installer if Exit Alarm is active for your system.
Exit Alarm Active
Whenever you arm the system, the exit delay begins. If an entry/exit
door or interior zone is faulted when the exit delay ends (e.g., exit
door left open), the system sounds an alarm and starts the entry delay
timer. If you disarm the system before the entry delay ends, the alarm
sound stops and the message CANCELED ALARM or CA is
displayed on the keypad, along with a zone number indicating the
faulted zone. No message is sent to the alarm monitoring company.
To clear the exit alarm condition, the open zone must be made intact.
To clear the display, enter your 4-digit security code plus OFF key.
If you do not disarm the system before the entry delay ends, and an
entry/exit door or interior zone is still open, the alarm sound
continues and an exit alarm message is sent to the alarm monitoring
company. The message EXIT ALARM or EA is displayed on the
keypad, along with a zone number indicating the faulted zone. To stop
the alarm, the system must be disarmed (by entering your code plus
OFF). To clear the display, enter your code plus OFF a second time.
An exit alarm also results if an entry/exit door or interior zone is
faulted within 2 minutes after the end of the exit delay.

About the Keypads
IMPORTANT
If the keypad beeps rapidly when you enter the premises, it
means that an alarm has occurred during your absence and an
intruder may still be on the premises.
LEAVE IMMEDIATELY AND CONTACT THE POLICE from a
nearby safe location.
General Information
Your keypads allow you to control all system functions. The keypads
feature a telephone-style (digital) keypad and a Liquid Crystal
Display (LCD) that shows the nature and location of all occurrences.
The keypads contain a built-in loudspeaker (sounder) that will
annunciate during alarms and troubles. The keypads also beep during
certain system functions, such as during entry/exit delay times, in
CHIME mode, and when you depress any of the keys (to acknowledge
the key press).
There are two basic types of keypads: the fixed-word keypad and the
alpha keypad (both described below).
Two-Line Alpha Keypad
Two-line alpha keypads feature a 2-line, 32-character alphanumeric
LCD that display system messages in English. The typical alpha
keypad (FA560KP) is shown on page 12. These keypads can also be
programmed with custom zone descriptors. The screen displays
depicted in this manual are those that typically appear on a 2line alpha keypad.
Fixed-Word Keypad
Fixed-word keypads are functionally identical to alpha keypads, but
the LCD display uses predesignated words to identify the nature and
location of occurrences. The typical fixed-word keypad (FA215KP) is
shown on the next page.

Paging Feature
General Information
If the Paging feature has been programmed for your system, your
pager will respond to certain conditions as they occur in your system.
This message appears in a 7-digit format explained below. You can
also send up to 16 additional digits that may consist of PIN numbers,
messages, reminders, etc. These 16 digits are programmed by your
installer and will appear before the standard 7-digit message.
The [D] button, when pressed (if available), sends a special message
to a pager and displays Pager Msg sent on the keypad for 30 seconds
(on an alpha keypad). The message it sends is coded as 999-9999 and
signifies ANY message the user and recipient have decided is
appropriate.
Code Format
The 7-digit condition code that follows takes the following form: SSS00EE
SSS =
3-digit event code: 911 = Alarm
811 = Trouble
101 = Opening (disarm)
102 = Closing (arm AWAY)
00EE = The first 2 digits will always be 00. They are followed by the
2-digit user number or zone number, depending on the event
code.
Examples
Pager displays: 911–0004 .
This indicates that your system is
reporting an alarm (911) due to a fault in zone 4 (04). Alarm and
trouble codes are always followed by the zone numbers in which they
occur.
Pager displays: 101–0011 .
This indicates that your system is
reporting an open (101) by user 11 (0011). Opening and closing
codes are always followed by the code number of the person who
caused it to happen. User codes are individually assigned and
programmed into the system by your installer.
- 28 -
Security Codes
General Information
As an additional safety feature, other users who do not need to know
your code can be assigned different security codes. These secondary
users are identified by "user numbers," which you select when you
assign a user's security code. You can assign up to 14 additional user
codes (user numbers 03-16), including the Temporary and Duress
codes. Note that the master (primary) user of the system is the only
one who can assign codes to secondary (or temporary) users, and is
user number 02; user number 01 is reserved for the installer of the
system.
All codes can be used interchangeably when performing system
functions (a system armed with one user's code can be disarmed by
another user's code), except the temporary code, described below.
Temporary Code
This code can be used to arm and disarm the system. It is typically
assigned to someone (such as a babysitter) who needs to arm/disarm
the system only at certain times. The temporary code is assigned to
user 15. The user of this code should not use the Quick Arming
feature described below. This code will automatically be removed
when the Master code is entered.
Duress Code
This feature is intended for use when you are forced to disarm or arm
the system under threat. When used, the system will operate
normally, but can silently notify the alarm monitoring company of
your situation, if that service has been provided. Duress code is
assigned to user 16.
Important: This code is useful only when the system is connected to
an alarm monitoring company.

Fire Alarm System
(If Installed)
General Information
Your fire alarm system (if installed) is active 24 hours a day,
providing continuous protection. In the event of an emergency, the
installed smoke and heat detectors will automatically activate your
security system, triggering a loud, interrupted sound from the
keypad. Optional exterior sounders will also produce an interrupted
sound. Your keypad will display a FIRE message (with zone location)
until you silence and clear the alarm display.
In Case of Fire
1. Should you become aware of a fire emergency before your detectors
sense the problem, go to your nearest keypad and press the single
panic key (or panic key pair) assigned as FIRE emergency (if
programmed by the installer) and hold it down for at least 2
seconds. The alarm will sound.
2. Evacuate all occupants from the premises.
3. If flames and/or smoke are present, leave the premises and notify
your local fire department immediately.
4. If no flames or smoke are apparent, investigate the cause of the
alarm. The keypad will display the zone descriptor of the zone(s) in

Recommendations for Proper Protection
THE FOLLOWING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE LOCATION OF FIRE
AND BURGLARY DETECTION DEVICES HELP PROVIDE PROPER
COVERAGE FOR THE PROTECTED PREMISES.
Recommendations for Smoke and Heat Detectors
With regard to the number and placement of smoke/heat detectors,
we subscribe to the recommendations contained in the National Fire
Protection Association's (NFPA) Standard #72, noted below.
Early-warning fire detection is best achieved by the installation
of fire detection equipment in all rooms and areas of the
household as follows: For minimum protection, a smoke detector
should be installed outside of each separate sleeping area, and
on each additional floor of a multi-floor family living unit,
including basements. The installation of smoke detectors in
kitchens, attics (finished or unfinished), or in garages is not
normally recommended.
For additional protection, the NFPA recommends that you install
heat or smoke detectors in the living room, dining room, bedroom(s),
kitchen, hallway(s), attic, furnace room, utility and storage rooms,
basements, and attached garages.

In addition, we recommend the following:
• Install a smoke detector inside every bedroom where a smoker
sleeps.
• Install a smoke detector inside every bedroom where someone
sleeps with the door partly or completely closed. Smoke could be
blocked by the closed door. Also, an alarm in the hallway outside
may not wake up the sleeper if the door is closed.
• Install a smoke detector inside bedrooms where electrical
appliances (such as portable heaters, air conditioners, or
humidifiers) are used.
• Install a smoke detector at both ends of a hallway if the hallway is
more than 40 feet (12 meters) long.
• Install smoke detectors in any room where an alarm control is
located, or in any room where alarm control connections to an AC
source or phone lines are made. If detectors are not so located, a fire
within the room could prevent the control from reporting a fire or
an intrusion.
- 40 -
Recommendations for Proper Protection (cont'd)
Recommendations for Proper Intrusion Protection
For proper intrusion coverage, sensors should be located at every
possible point of entry to a home or commercial premises. This
includes skylights and upper windows in a multi-level building.
In addition, we recommend that radio backup be used in a security
system so that alarm signals can still be sent to the alarm monitoring
station in the event that the telephone lines are out of order (alarm
signals are normally sent over the phone lines, if connected to an
alarm monitoring station).

1. Position your detector or your interior and/or exterior
sounders so that they can be heard by all occupants.
2. Determine two means of escape from each room. One
path of escape should lead to the door that permits
normal exit from the building. The other should be
an alternative route, such as a window, should your
primary escape path be impassable. Station an
escape ladder at such windows if there is a long drop
to the ground.
3. Sketch a floor plan of the building. Show windows,
doors, stairs, and rooftops that can be used to escape.
Indicate escape routes for each room. Keep these
routes free from obstruction and post copies of the
escape routes in every room.
4. Assure that all bedroom doors are shut while you are
asleep. This will prevent deadly smoke from entering
while you escape.
BACK
5. To determine which escape path to use during a fire,
first feel the door. If it is hot, check your alternate
escape route. If the door is cool, open it cautiously. Be
prepared to slam the door if smoke or heat rushes in.
•
FRONT
6. Where smoke is present, crawl on the floor; do not
walk upright. Smoke rises and may overcome you.
Clearer air is near the floor.
7. Escape quickly; don't panic.
8. Establish a common meeting place outdoors, away from your house, where
everyone can meet and then take steps to contact the authorities and account for
those missing. Choose someone to assure that nobody returns to the house —
many die going back.
- 42 -
Maintaining Your System
Taking Care of Your System
The components of your security system are designed to be as
maintenance-free as possible. However, to make sure that your
system is in reliable working condition:
1. Test your system weekly.
2. Test your system after any alarm occurs (see Testing the System
section).
Replacing Batteries in Wireless Sensors
Wireless
sensors may
not have
been
installed in
your security
system.
Each wireless sensor in your system has a 9-volt or 3-volt battery. The
system detects a low battery in any wireless sensor, including smoke
detectors, the optional personal emergency transmitter, and the
optional portable wireless keypad. (The system detects a low battery
in a portable wireless keypad as soon as one of its keys is pressed, and
responds be displaying 00 on the wired keypad.)
Alkaline batteries provide a minimum of 1 year of operation, and in
most units and applications, provide 2–4 years of service. Three-volt
lithium batteries provide up to 4 or more years of operation. Actual
battery life depends on the environment in which the sensor is used,
the number of signals that the transmitter in the sensor has to send,
and the specific type of sensor. Factors such as humidity, high or low
temperatures, or large swings in temperature may all lead to the
reduction of actual battery life in an installation.
If you have a low battery in a wireless sensor, the keypad displays a
LOW BATTERY message. In addition, a battery-operated smoke
detector with a low battery emits a single "chirp" sound
approximately once every 20–30 seconds, identifying itself as the
smoke detector with the weak battery.
NOTE: The LOW BATTERY message comes on as a warning that
battery replacement in the indicated sensor(s) is due within 30 days.

Maintaining Your System (cont’d)
Important: Use only batteries recommended by your installer as
replacement.
Silencing Low Battery Warning Tones at the Keypad
You can silence the keypad’s warning tones by pressing the
1
key,
OFF
but the keypad's LOW BATTERY message display will remain on as
a reminder that you have a low-battery condition in one or more of
your sensors. When you replace the weak battery with a fresh one, the
sensor will send a "good battery" signal to the control as soon as the
sensor is activated (opening/closing of door, window, etc.), causing the
LOW BATTERY display to turn off. If the sensor is not activated, the
display will automatically clear within approximately 1 hour.
Routine Care
• Treat the components of your security system as you would any
other electrical equipment. Do not slam sensor-protected doors or
windows.
• Keep dust from accumulating on the keypad and all protective
sensors, particularly on motion sensors and smoke detectors.
• The keypad and sensors should be cleaned carefully with a dry soft
cloth. Do not spray water or any other fluid on the units.

Glossary
The following terms are used throughout the manual.
ARM/DISARM: "Armed" simply means that the burglary portion of your system
is turned ON and is in a state of readiness. "Disarmed" means
that the burglary system is turned OFF, and must be re-armed
to become operational. However, even in a "disarmed" state,
"emergency" and "fire" portions of your system are still
operational.
KEYPAD: This
is the area on your keypad containing numbered
pushbuttons similar to those on telephones or calculators. These
keys control the arming and disarming of the system, and
perform other functions described in this manual.
ZONE: A specific area of protection.
BYPASS: To disarm a specific area of burglary protection while leaving
other areas operational.
DELAY ZONE: An area of protection containing doors most frequently used to
enter or exit (typically, a front door, back door, or door from the
garage into the building). The delay zone allows sufficient time
for authorized entry or exit without causing an alarm. Consult
your installer for the entry and exit delay times that have been
set for your system during installation, and record them in the
space provided in “Entry/exit delays.”
DAY/NIGHT ZONE: An area of protection whose violation causes a trouble indication
during the disarmed (DAY) mode and an alarm during the
armed (NIGHT) mode.

UL NOTICE: This is a "GRADE A" system.
FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION (FCC) Part 15 STATEMENT
This equipment has been tested to FCC requirements and has been found acceptable for use. The
FCC requires the following statement for your information:
This equipment generates and uses radio frequency energy and if not installed and used properly,
that is, in strict accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, may cause interference to radio
and television reception. It has been type tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B
computing device in accordance with the specifications in Part 15 of FCC Rules, which are designed
to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential installation. However,
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment
does cause interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
•If using an indoor antenna, have a quality outdoor antenna installed.
•Re-orient the receiving antenna until interference is reduced or eliminated.
•Move the receiver away from the control/communicator.
•Move the antenna leads away from any wire runs to the control/communicator.
•Plug the control/communicator into a different outlet so that it and the receiver are on different
branch circuits.
If necessary, the user should consult the dealer or an experienced radio/television technician for
additional suggestions.
The user or installer may find the following booklet prepared by the Federal Communications
Commission helpful: "Interference Handbook." This booklet is available from the U.S. Government

WARNING!
THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS ALARM SYSTEM
While this system is an advanced design security system, it does not offer guaranteed protection
against burglary or fire or other emergency. Any alarm system, whether commercial or residential, is
subject to compromise or failure to warn for a variety of reasons. For example:
• Intruders may gain access through unprotected openings or have the technical sophistication to
bypass an alarm sensor or disconnect an alarm warning device.
• Intrusion detectors (e.g., passive infrared detectors), smoke detectors, and many other sensing
devices will not work without power. Battery-operated devices will not work without batteries,
with dead batteries, or if the batteries are not put in properly. Devices powered solely by AC will
not work if their AC power supply is cut off for any reason, however briefly.
• Signals sent by wireless transmitters may be blocked or reflected by metal before they reach the
alarm receiver. Even if the signal path has been recently checked during a weekly test, blockage
can occur if a metal object is moved into the path.
• A user may not be able to reach a panic or emergency button quickly enough.
• While smoke detectors have played a key role in reducing residential fire deaths in the United
States, they may not activate or provide early warning for a variety of reasons in as many as 35%
of all fires, according to data published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Some of
the reasons smoke detectors used in conjunction with this System may not work are as follows.
Smoke detectors may have been improperly installed and positioned. Smoke detectors may not
sense fires that start where smoke cannot reach the detectors, such as in chimneys, in walls, or
roofs, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors also may not sense a fire on another
level of a residence or building. A second-floor detector, for example, may not sense a first-floor or
basement fire. Moreover, smoke detectors have sensing limitations. No smoke detector can sense
every kind of fire every time. In general, detectors may not always warn about fires caused by
carelessness and safety hazards like smoking in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas, improper
storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with matches, or
arson. Depending upon the nature of the fire and/or the locations of the smoke detectors, the
detector, even if it operates as anticipated, may not provide sufficient warning to allow all
occupants to escape in time to prevent injury or death.
• Passive Infrared Motion Detectors can detect intrusion only within the designed ranges as
diagrammed in their installation manual. Passive Infrared Detectors do not provide volumetric
area protection. They do create multiple beams of protection, and intrusion can only be detected in
unobstructed areas covered by those beams. They cannot detect motion or intrusion that takes
place behind walls, ceilings, floors, closed doors, glass partitions, glass doors, or windows.
Mechanical tampering, masking, painting or spraying of any material on the mirrors, windows or
any part of the optical system can reduce their detection ability. Passive Infrared Detectors sense
changes in temperature; however, as the ambient temperature of protected area approaches the
temperature range of 90° to 105°F, the detection performance can decrease.

WARNING!
THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS ALARM SYSTEM (cont'd)
• Alarm warning devices such as sirens, bells or horns may not alert people or wake up sleepers if
they are located on the other side of closed or partly open doors. If warning devices sound on a
different level of the residence from the bedrooms, then they are less likely to waken or alert
people inside the bedrooms. Even persons who are awake may not hear the warning if the alarm is
muffled by a stereo, radio, air conditioner or other appliance, or by passing traffic. Finally, alarm
warning devices, however loud, may not warn hearing-impaired people or waken deep sleepers.
• Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premises to a central monitoring station
may be out of service or temporarily out of service. Telephone lines are also subject to compromise
by sophisticated intruders.
• Even if the system responds to the emergency as intended, however, occupants may have
insufficient time to protect themselves from the emergency situation. In the case of a monitored
alarm system, authorities may not respond appropriately.
• This equipment, like other electrical devices, is subject to component failure. Even though this
equipment is designed to last as long as 10 years, the electronic components could fail at any time.
The most common cause of an alarm system not functioning when an intrusion or fire occurs is
inadequate maintenance. This alarm system should be tested weekly to make sure all sensors and
transmitters are working properly.
Installing an alarm system may make one eligible for lower insurance rates, but an alarm system is
not a substitute for insurance. Homeowners, property owners and renters should continue to act
prudently in protecting themselves and continue to insure their lives and property.
We continue to develop new and improved protection devices. Users of alarm systems owe it to
themselves and their loved ones to learn about these developments.

que le matériel fonctionnera à la satisfaction de
l'utilisateur.
Avant d'installer ce matériel, l'utilisateur doit s'assurer qu'il
est permis de le raccorder aux installations de l'entreprise
locale de télécommunications. Le matériel doit également
être installé en suivant une méthode acceptée de
raccordement. Dans certains cas, les fils intérieurs de
l'entreprise utilisés pour un service individuel à la ligne
unique peuvent être prolongés au moyen d'un dispositif
homologué de raccordement (cordon prolongateur
téléphonique interne). L'abonné ne doit pas oublier qu'il
est possible que la conformité aux conditions énoncées cidessus n'empèchet pas la dégradation du service dans
certaines situations. Actuellement, les entreprises de
télécommunications ne permettent pas que l'on raccorde
leur matériel aux prises d'abonnés, sauf dans les cas
precis prévus par les tarifs particuliers de ces entreprises.
Les réparations du matériel homologué doivent être
effectuées pas un centre d'entretien canadien autorisé
désigné par le fournisseur. La compagnie de
télécommunications peut demander à l'utilisateur de
débrancher un appareil à la suite de réparations ou de
modifications effectuées par l'utilisateur ou à cause de
mauvais fonctionnement.
Pour sa propre protection, l'utilisateur doit s'assurer que
tous les fils de mise en terre de la source d'énergie
électrique, des lignes téléphoniques de réseau de
conduites d'eau s'il y en a, soient raccordés ensemble.
Cette précaution est particulièrement importante dans les
régions rurales.
Avertissement: L'utilisateur ne doit pas tenter de faire
ces raccordements lui-même il doit avoir recours à un
service d'inspection des installations électriques, ou à un
électricien, selon le cas.
L'indice de charge (IC) assigné à chaque dispositif
terminal pour éviter toute surcharge indique le
pourcentage de la charge totale qui peut être raccordé à
un circuit téléphonique bouclé utilisé par ce dispositif. La
terminaison du circuit bouclé peut être constituée de
n'importe quelle combinaison de dispositifs, pourvu que la
somme des indices de charge de l'ensemble des
dispositifs ne dépasse pas 100.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that
it is permissible to be connected to the facilities of the
local telecommunications company. The equipment must
also be installed using an acceptable method of
connection. In some cases, the company's inside wiring
associated with a single-line individual service may be
extended by means of certified connector assembly
(telephone extension cord). The customer should be
aware that compliance with the above conditions may not
prevent degradation of service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an
authorized Canadian maintenance facility designated by
the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the user
to this equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give
the telecommunications company cause to request the
user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the
electrical ground connections of the power utility,
telephone lines and internal metallic water pipe system, if
present, are connected together. This precaution may be
particularly important in rural areas.
Users should not attempt to make such
Caution:
connections themselves, but should contact the
appropriate electric inspection authority, or electrician, as
appropriate.
The Load Number (LN) assigned to each terminal device
denotes the percentage of the total load to be connected
to a telephone loop which is used by the device, to
prevent overloading. The termination on a loop may
consist of any combination of devices subject only to the
requirement that the total of the Load Numbers of all the
devices does not exceed 100.
