CALLING STATION INDICATOR
(Busy Lamp Field) Buttons programmed as station
buttons on a tei8phOn8 afS0 serve as a Busy
Lamp Field to display the status of other
telephones within the system.
Each telephone user can select the way that calls
to their phone are voice announced. By selecting
the 1°P position on the intercom signal switch, the
user can receive voice announced intercom calls
without the calling party hearing conversations in
progress. By selecting the “H” position, the user
can reply handsfree to voice announced intercom
calls. Basic model telephones cannot use the
handsfree (H) mode.
CALL FORWARD-STATION Vodavi Digital Starplus
Each key telephone user may direct intercom calls,
transferred outside lines and incoming outside
lines to be forwarded to another station in the system.
A forwarded call will signal In theTONE mode
regardless of the way the intercom signaling switch
was set. A station with calls forwarded to it can forward
its calls to another station; a call will forward
in this manner an unlimited number of times;
howeverthe last station in a chain cannot use DND.
System programming allows incoming outside
lines, that are programmed to ring a particular station,
to be forwarded to another predetermined
station after a programmed period of time. This
occurs when the station normally receiving the outside
ring is busy or does not answer the call.
Preset forward can be chained an unlimited number
of times. Each station in the system can have
a preset fotward station.
CALL PICKUP (GROUP)
Stations can be placed in one, both or neither of 2
pickup groups. Stations within the same group
can pick up tone ringing intercom calls, recalling
or transferred CO line calls for another station, and
message wait call backs by dialing the pickup
code. Vodavi Digital Starplus
An outside line can be transferred from one keyset
toanother. By pressing the STATION button of the
desired party, or pressing the TFtANS/QUE button
and then dialing that 2 digit station number, unscreened
or screened transfers with an announcement
can be made. The line being
transferred rings on the keyset and gives a flash indication
to the receiving party’s keyset. Several attempts
can be made to find someone at different
keysets without losing the call. If a line is transferred
to a busy station, that station will receive
muted ringing. .
CAMP ON (Call Waiting)
A busy station may be alerted that an outside
line is on hold and waiting for them by pressing
the MSG/CP.ON button. The called station will
receive two muted rings, and a flashing CP.ON
button if the camp-on initiator is waiting to announce
the transfer. The busy party can press
the MSG/CP.ON button. This will automatically
place on hold any outside line he’s currently
using and allow him to converse with the campon
initiator. Vodavi Digital Starplus
CO LINE ACCESS
Each telephone can be programmed to be allowed
or denied an appearance to individual
outside lines or a pool of outside lines.
Telephones denied this appearance can have
that line transferred to them by another station
and the call will appear on the loop button.
Any station may be programmed to ring for any
combination of lines during the day and different
stations can be programmed to ring on those
lines at night.
CO LINE GROUPING
CO (outside) lines can be in one of up to 8
groups to separate line types such as local,
PBX, FX, etc. Stations are then individually assigned
access to these lines via either a pooled
group key or by a direct line key.
CO LINE QUEUING Vodavi Digital Starplus
When all outside (CO) lines in a group are busy,
stations can be placed on a list awaiting that line
to become available. Users are signaled when
a line becomes available. If the waiting station
is busy when the queued CO line becomes
available, the station is placed at the bottom of
the queue list. If a station doesn’t answer a
queue callback within 15 seconds it will be
dropped from the queue list.

a conference. There is no limit to the number of
add-on conferences, except for the total number
of CO lines connected to the system.
COMMON AUDIBLE RINGING
(Loud Bell Control) Incoming CO line ringing can
be directed to relay controlled contacts. There are
4 sets of dry contacts that can be assigned to stations
as LBC or to CO lines for A-lead indication.
An external power source and ringing device or
other ancillary is required.
DIAL PULSE/DTMF SIGNAUNG
Each outside line can be individually programmed
to provide dial pulse or DTMF tone sending.
DIAL PULSE TO TONE SWITCHOVER
The signaling on an outside line can be changed
from dial pulse to tone (DTMF). This allows lines
set for pulse signaling to use common carriers
which require DTMF signaling. This feature can be
stored and used with speed dial numbers.
DIRECT STATlON SELECT
The user with a flexible button assigned as a DSS
button on his key telephone can call an intercom
station by simply pressing the appropriate DSS
button. The called station is automatically signaled.
DO NOT DISTURB
Placing a key telephone in DND will eliminate incoming
CO line ringing, intercom calls, CO line
transfers, All Call Page announcements and
Camp-Ons. Pressing the DND button twice while
the telephone is ringing will eliminate that ringing.
The secretary in an EXECUTIVE/SECRETARY pair
can override the Executive DND by using the
Camp-On feature. A station in DND can still use
the telephone to make normal outgoing calls. A
station can be denied this feature through
In the event of commercial power failure or central
processor failure, the system will automatically
connect the first 3 outside lines to single line
telephones which have been installed for that
Four pairs of key telephones can be designated
as executive/secretary pairs. Whenever the executive
phone is in DND or busy, transferred CO
lines and intercom calls will be directed to the
secretary station. If the secretary station is
busy, busy tone will be received by the calling
party. There are 3 combinations possible:
1. 4 Executive/Secretary pairs
2.’ 1 Executive with 14 secretaries ’
3. 1 Secretary for 14 Executives
The secretary station can signal the Executive
in DND by using the Camp On feature.
Any station that is allowed access to paging can
make voice paging announcements to the external
paging port by either dlai code or direct
The external page port can be connected to a
two way paging system. Vodavi Digital Starplus
The Fiash button is used to m-establish dial tone
or to transfer a PBX call. Flash can be
programmed in speed dial for Centrex feature

The intercom number assigned to a station can
be changed without moving the telephone.
However station circuit 01 always remains the
programming station. Vodavi Digital Starplus
On the Enhanced/Executive phones there are 6
fixed feature buttons and 22 flexible buttons.
The Basic telephone has 6 fixed feature buttons
and 6 flexible buttons. The flexible buttons can
be programmed in one of the following ways:
