This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy, and if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna. Increase the distance between the equipment and receiver. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. Changes or modifications not expressly approved by party responsible for compliance could void the user authority to operate the equipment.
  • 3. FCC Part 68 Registration This device complies with FCC Part 68 rules, and the use of this device is subject to the following restrictions: The FCC has established rules which permit this device to be directly connected to the telephone network. Standardized jacks are used for these connections. This equipment should not be used on party lines or coin phones. If this device is malfunctioning, it may also be causing harm to the telephone network; this device should be disconnected until the source of the problem can be determined and until repair has been made. If this is not done, the telephone company may temporarily disconnect service. The telephone company may make changes in it's facilities, equipment, operation and procedures; if such changes affect the compatibility or use of this device, the telephone company is required to give adequate notice of the situation with the FCC. If the telephone company requests information on what equipment is connected to their lines, inform them of: a. The telephone number to which this unit is connected. b. The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN). c. The USOC jack required. d. The FCC Registration number. Items (b) and (d) are indicated on the label. The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is used to determine how many devices can be connected to your telephone line. In most areas, the sum of the REN's of all the devices on any one line should not exceed 5.0. If too many devices are attached, they may not ring properly.
