Configuring Paging via External Speaker Output (Galaxy Mini only)

The External Speaker Output paging capability can only be enabled on the Galaxy Mini.
The Galaxy Mini can support either paging to an external speaker via the SPKR port or Music On Hold via the MIC input; they cannot be used simultaneously.

Configuring for External Speaker Output (using the SPKR jack)

By default, paging via the external speaker output is Disabled.
To enable the functionality on a Galaxy Mini system, perform the following steps:

 

  1. Open the UCx Web-based Configuration Utility
  2. From the PBX tab, select PBX Configuration
  3. From the lef side column, select Feature Codes
  4. Scroll to the Paging and Intercom section
  5. From the External Speaker Output dropdown menu, select Enabled

  6. By default, the feature code is set to *62 (or Feature 62 on Nortel or E-Metrotel XStim sets). If you wish to use a feature code other than the default, you may change the value here.
  7. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Submit Changes and the Apply Config (at t he top of the page).

The SPKR port uses standard PC level impedance and output levels. If you are connecting to an overhead paging system you may need to use impedance matching amplifiers that are specific to the Paging Amplifier of your choice!

Paging via the SPKR jack

Once configured, a user may dial the feature code (*62 or F62 by default) from any telephone. The UCx software will immediately open the path between that telephone and the speaker (SPKR) port and the user can begin speaking when the paging system is ready.

A Nortel or E-MetroTel set will display External Speaker, *62, is online.

To end the page, hang up the phone.
 

If you do not hear anything from the SPKR port, test the system using PC speakers or a PC headset that use a common 3.5 mm male headphone jack. If there is no audio path established, then verify that you have deleted any LineIn Music On Hold category in the Music on Hold settings (see Adding LineIn Streaming Category).
