many offices use a central telephone system or
Private Automatic Branch Exchange (PABX).
Your machine can be connected to most types of
PABX (PBX). The machine’s recall feature
supports timed break recall only (TBR). TBR will
work with most PABX (PBX) systems allowing
you to gain access to an outside line, or transfer
calls to another extension. The feature works
when Tel/R is pressed or Tel/Mute/R and Shift
are pressed at the same time (FAX-2845 only).
