Technical Specifications
























Thank you for choosing the Orchid Telecom PBX 207 telephone system. Please take time to read through this Programming and User Guide to get the most from your new purchase.

Installation hints

All extension sockets should be Master type with built in ringing capacitor. (If you use a secondary type socket, and your extension phones are older type 4-wire working, they will not ring).

We have a range of “Easy Install” adaptors for connecting the extensions. They are available in 4 lengths; 10cm, 5m,10m & 20M. Please contact your supplier for more details.

Only extensions 101 to 104 will ring on incoming calls (factory default setting) unless you nominate any other extensions to ring. See Assigning Incoming Call section



Drill two holes, vertically 85mm apart. (Take extra care not to drill through electrical wiring or pipes.)

Adjust the screw heads until the PBX fits firmly against the wall.

System programming

All programming is done on Extension 101 only.

Note: After programming a line successfully you will hear a single Beep. After you enter the #, if you make a mistake you will hear a series of Beeps

If you are programming a number of features you do not need to enter # and hang up after each feature string. If the entry is successful you will hear the confirming Beep and, instead of hanging up, you can continue with programming the next feature .

System p assword

The factory default password is:

* * 0 1 (1234) #

Every time you successfully enter the password you will a single Beep. If you make a mistake you will hear a series of Beeps


Changing the p assword

It is only 1234 that can be changed

Ext 101 Dial

: Current Password * * 0 1 1234 #

* * 0 2 xxxx #

Hang up

Your new password will be

** 0 1 xxxx #

To simplify all future programming, we strongly recommend that you store your new password into a one-touch memory.

Exchange line set up

The PBX 207 is configured at the factory for 2 Exchange Lines to be connected. If you only have 1 line connected it is important that the system is set-up as follows:

One Exchange Line connected

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 3 1 #

Hang up

Two Exchange Lines connected

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 3 1 2 # Hang up

Change extension numbers

As currently configured, the extensions are 3 digits 101 to 107, but these numbers can be changed to any numbers you want from 100 to 800

Example : Change 101 to 200:

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 7 101 200 #

Hang Up

If you want to change more extension numbers just repeat from * 7

– no need to re-enter the password. Once complete just hang up.

Extension Number Confirmation

If you have forgotten or are not sure what your extension number is lift the handset and dial

* # 81

You will hear a message in English announcing the extension number.


To Restore to Factory Default

To restore the extension numbers to 101 to 107 enter the password then

* 7000 #

Set Extensions to Ring on Incoming Calls

The factory default is for extensions101 to 104 to ring on all incoming calls but this can be changed to meet your requirements. This is a useful feature for spreading the incoming call load over certain extensions or a specific line direct to a specific extension. This is useful if you are sharing the PBX with another company or connecting a Fax machine to an extension.

Specific Extensions

To set extensions 101 & 102 to ring on line 1

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 1 1 12 # Hang up

Now extensions 101 & 102 only will ring for calls coming in on line 1

To set extensions 103 & 104 to ring on line 2

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 1 2 34 # Hang up

Now extensions 103 & 104 only will ring for calls coming in on line 2

All Extensions

To set All extensions to ring on both lines

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 1 1 1234567 * 1 2 1234567 # Hang up

Now All extensions will ring on all calls

Set Extensions for Making Outgoing Calls

Extension to specific exchange lines

A useful feature if you want to keep line 2 free for incoming calls or other priority Extensions for outgoing calls. This does not restrict other extensions from using the same outside line.

Example: Restrict extension 107 to use exchange line 1 only.

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 42 01 107 # Hang up

To cancel this Programming


Ext 101 Dial: Password * 312 # Hang up

Make Exchange lines Exclusive to specific extension or extensions

This applies to outgoing calls only, incoming calls can be answered by all extensions.

Example: Assign extensions 106 and 107 to be the only extensions that can make outgoing calls on line 1.

Ext 101 Dial: Password *41







# Hang up

Up to 4 extensions can be programmed to use a specific line exclusively

To cancel this Programming:

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 312 #

Call Barring / Restrictions

The Orchid PBX 207 has a Call Restrictions package which can enable you to block up to 10 different call types. For example you can block calls being made to premium rate numbers that start with 09, calls to the speaking clock starting with 118, calls to international numbers 00 etc.

To Enter Call Types into the Barred Group

Password *52 call type # call type # call type # etc

– Hang up when complete. You can add to the group at any time

Call types not listed in this group would be allowed



To Bar International calls (00), calls to Directory Enquiries (118), call to premium rate numbers


Ext 101 Dial Password *52 00

Ext 101 Dial Password *52 001

# 118 #

# 00852 #

09 # Hang up

You can be more specific with your barred list

– say you wanted to bar calls to just the USA (001) and Hong Kong (00852) but allow all other international calls

Hang up

You can continue adding as many call types as you want in one string up to a maximum of 10


Or add to it as you need to.

To Clear the Group

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 52 #

Hang up

You cannot delete individual call types from the group.

Allocating the Barred Group to Specific Extensions

You can now allocate the barred call types to specific extensions or all extensions. Examples to illustrate are as follows:

Allocating to all extensions

Ext 101 Dial Password *51 4 # Hang up

Allocate to Extensions 106 & 107 Only

Ext 101 Dial Password *51 106 4 # 107 4 # Hang up

Allocate to Extensions 104, 105 & 106

Ext 101 Dial Password *51 104 4# 105 4# 106 4 # Hang up

To cancel the barred calls rule from specific extensions:

Internal Calls Only

If you want an extension to be able to make internal calls only from extension 101 :

Dial the password *51 extension number 6#

To cancel the Internal calls only rule:

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 51 Extension No 1# Hang up


Set a time limit for outgoing calls

All or individual extensions can be restricted to a maximum call time for each outgoing call. The maximum call time can be set for 01 to 99 minutes.

Example 1: Restrict all extensions to 3 minutes per outgoing call:

Ext 101 Dial: Password *9 101 03# 102 03# 103 03# 104 03#

105 03# 106 03# 107 03# Hang up

Cancel all extensions being limited to 3 minutes for outgoing calls:

Example 2: Restrict extensions 106 and 107 to 10 minutes for outgoing calls:

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 9 106 10# 107 10# Hang up

Cancel extension

106’s limit of 10 minutes for outgoing calls:

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 9 106 #

Hang up

Note: One minute before the end of the time limit a beep will be heard every 15 seconds.

Music On Transfer

The PBX 207 has an intermittent comfort tone which the caller hears while the call is being transferred. However, we recommend you make use of the external Music On Hold Port. This will provide a variety of music and a more professional image. A standard CD or MP3 player can be connected to this port using an Audio Cable with a 3.5 mm plug connected at both ends.

Connecting from the music on Hold Port to the player

’s headset socket.

Check or listen to Music On Hold

Ext 101


Password * 2 4 # Listen Hang up

Auto Attendant (DISA)

All lines or individual lines can be programmed for Auto Attendant Mode (AA). In AA mode the

PBX207 answers incoming callers and they will hear your personalised Outgoing Message



This enables you to instruct your callers to Dial 101 for Sales, 102 for accounts etc, or 0 for the

Operator. Extension 102 is Operator 1 and extension 103 is Operator 2. If Operator 1 is busy the call will go to Operator 2.

Record the Auto Attendant outgoing message (OGM)

You have up to 15 seconds for the OGM. A Suggested message is as follows:

'This is Smith and Co. If you would like the Sales department please Dial 101, if you would like

Customer Services please Dial 102, and for all other enquiries, please Dial 0 for the operator'

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 22 # Record message Hang up

Playback the Auto Attendant outgoing Message (OGM)

Ext 101 Dial: Password * 23 # Listen to message Hang up

Assign operator extension(s) for the Auto Attendant mode

When the caller dials 0 for the operator, extension 102 will ring, if 102 is busy extension 103 will ring. This is the factory default.

To change this program the extensions of your choice for Operator 1 or Operator 2, which will answer if Operator 1 is busy.

To Connect an Answer Machine, Fax Machine or PDQ machine

All such machines should be connected to an extension port

– do not connect on the line side.

When using such a machine we recommend connecting it to an unused extension number, or if all are in use connect in parallel using a 2-way adaptor.

It is important that the PDQ machine is connected to one of the extension ports and not directly to a phone line. Connecting to the phone line will cause false rings.
