installation process

Installation Overview The  following  steps provide  an  overview  of the  installation process.   Details  on each of these  steps  are contained in  the  following  sections of  this chapter.   Be sure to read  the detailed instructions  before installing the  DX-80. 1. Plan the  installation, including  the KSU1 or  KSU1  and KSU2 and  Main Distribution Frame (MDF) location, station  locations,  cable runs,  and optional equipment. 2. Assemble  the correct tools  and supplies: UTP  telephony grade cable/wiring, miscellaneous telephony  hardware,  66  blocks, modular wall jacks, etc.) 3. Run the  wiring  for speakerphones, DSS consoles and analog devices (FAX  machines, modems, etc.)  from the MDF  to  each location.   Wiring  topology  is referred  to  as  “star-wiring”  configuration; no  cable should loop  from  one telephone location to another. 4. Run cable/wiring to any  optional  equipment, such as external  paging  equipment,  loud  bell signaling devices, music sources, etc. 5. Mount the  MDF backboard and attach the  terminal  blocks  on the backboard.  Use a  dedicated MDF with  66 block wiring field to  promote full serviceability of  the system  and connections using  proven  techniques.   If you  route  extension  cables into the  KSU, you  have to terminate one cable  pair into standard crimping  modular connectors for  each cable.
