How can I use analog devices like fax machines, and credit card validators, with the NBX?

There are two major ways available to place these kinds of analog devices on the NBX system. The first is primarily a stand alone device, known as an analog terminal adapter(ATA). It has been manufactured under two numbers, both of which, in a practical sense, act the same in service. These are 3C10120, and the 3C10400. This device is 115 volt standard powered, and is shelf or desk-top mounted. Its size is approximately 12 inches square, and 1 inch thick. The fax or CC machine is plugged into the ATA , and the ATA is then wired into the switch used in the configuration for the placement of your phones. A second option is to use the Analog Terminal Card 3C10117, which is a four port card that is used in the NBX 100 Cabinet 3C10111C, or the V3000/V5000 expansion cabinet, number 3C10605A. It requires one slot in either cabinet, but allows up to four devices to be plugged into the system simultaneously, that are analog based.
