DIP switch explanations

 On the base station of the DECT headsets there are six (6) white switches that are referred to as "dip switches". These switches control some additional settings that can be adjusted for optimal performance of the unit. Below is an outline of what each of the switches do.

 

1) HANDSET LIFTER/DHSG
This function is used for creating remote answering capabilities in phones that utilize the DHSG Electronic Hook Switch signals. When the DHSG switch is enabled and the appropriate EHS cable is used in conjunction with the headset the user can utilize the remote answering capabilities.

NOTE: If the phone does not support DHSG signals or the HSL 10 handset lifter is being used or the remote answering function is not being used then the switch should remain in the "handset lifter" position.

2) HANDSET LIFTER/MSH
This function is used for creating remote answering capabilities in phones that utilize the MSH Electronic Hook Switch signals. When the MSH switch is enabled and the appropriate EHS cable is used in conjunction with the headset the user can utilize the remote answering capabilities.

NOTE: If the phone does not support MSH signals or the HSL 10 handset lifter is being used or the remote answering function is not being used then the switch should remain in the "handset lifter" position.

3) LONG RANGE/SHORT RANGE

This setting affects the range that can be achieved between the headset and base station. Typically the system is set to "Long Range" so a user can get the maximum distance between the headset and base station. If the environment is dense with wireless signals (ie: numerous wireless headsets are being used in close proximity) then a user may set the system to "short range" to create a stronger signal between the headset and base station and hence promote faster connectivity in the signal dense environment.

4) AUTO LINK OFF/AUTO LINK ON
This setting controls whether the headset automatically establishes the wireless connection with the base station when the headset is removed from the base station. When "Auto Link On" is enabled the headset will automatically create the wireless connection with the base station when the headset is removed from the base station. When "Auto Link Off" is enabled the headset will not create a wireless connection with the base station until the button on the headset itself is pressed to turn the headset on.

NOTE: If "Auto Link On" is enabled and the system is set up for remote answering capabilities then the headset will automatically activate when removed from the base station which would in turn connect an incoming call.

5) WIDEBAND/NARROWBAND
This setting determines how much information is passed through the connection. Wideband allows more information through the connection and creates a more natural sounding voice. Narrowband compacts the information that goes through the connection which can result in the "phone voice" which is not as natural sounding as a real voice.

NOTE: In order for wideband to be utilized both sides of the connection must be using wideband. If one side of the connection is wideband and one side of the connection is narrowband then both sides of the connection are defaulted to narrowband.

6) STANDARD/LIMITER
This setting controls the level of the audio coming through to the headset. The "standard" setting allows audio though at whatever volume it is actually at whereas the "limiter" setting limits audio to a maximum level of 85 dB.
