ESI Cordless Handset II Repeater The optional ESI Cordless Handset II Repeater extends the coverage area of the ESI Cordless Handset II in all directions, including up and down. If Repeaters are installed so their coverage area overlaps that of the base station, the base station can hand off calls to the Repeaters as the user moves from one coverage area to another. When it’s connected to a Repeater, the ESI Cordless Handset II operates exactly as it does when connected to its base station, and the handoff from the base station to the Repeater occurs seamlessly without disturbing the end user, even during an active call. Each ESI Cordless Handset II base station supports up to six repeaters, regardless of configuration. • Each Repeater supports up to two direct connections to other Repeaters. • No Repeater can be more than three connections — or hops — from the base station. All Repeaters, regardless of configuration, must be registered to the base station. Repeaters that are registered directly to a base station (left), do not require use of the optional Repeater Configurator Kit. These Repeaters can be installed using automatic configuration. However, Repeaters registered to the base station through another Repeater (one example shown, right) do require use of the Repeater Configurator Kit. For detailed information on installing Repeaters, refer to the ESI Cordless Handset II Repeater Installation Manual (ESI # 0450-1248).
