The Comdial DX-120 or DX120 is an extremely capable telephone system with the Edge 120 or the legacy 7260 Edge telephones it is very expandable and feature rich. The Comdial DX-120 DX120 was introduced in 2007 and end of life in 2014. In those 7 years many system shave been installed which is great to find replacement used parts. One issue we’ve found is the main cabinet mother board develops an incurable “cancer”. It begins one day and by 3 months the system has fully failed. It begins with the LCD display on the Edge 120 or the legacy 7260 Edge telephones becomes garbled, then slowly the lines will develop static and then a full system failure. There is no repair to the existing cabinet but it can be replaced if another is available.

OVERVIEW

OVERVIEW
The Vertical DX-120 is a perfectly digital mameluco key telephone system. The DX-120 uses a mix of “noose sally” pivotal
duty (blower association) impregnate interfaces and digital lines such as T1 or ISDN (T1-PRI), along with a mingle of analog
and digital extension ports to provide function communications and connectivity to the Public Switched Telephone
Network (PSTN).
The DX-120 delivers a vast group of office productiveness features and drop a line use improve features, embrace
Caller Identification (prescribe ring company contribution), in the standard package. Unlike most systems that
support Caller ID, the DX-120 nurture Caller ID to DX-120 owning digital extensions and to third-party, Caller
ID capable analog devices (cordless telephones, etc.)
Although most characteristic are flag, the DX-120 furnish for several facultative features to further heighten office
communications. Built-in judgment processing integration packages intercept:
• Automated Attendant
• Four deportment, Flash-supported Voice Mail/Auto Attendant (expansible to 8 ports)
• Four port, Hard strive-supported Voice Mail/Auto Attendant (expandible to 8 carry)

The DX-120 dais admit you to use these voice protuberance platforms without losing worthy system transport
means.
The DX-120 is inclose of an resort configured, expandible Key Service Unit (KSU) platform. There is one
plenteously-displayed Digital Executive Telephone (DET) that speak outburst to all system cosine. The system
workmanship provides an expansible interface for digital port growth and analog port adulthood. The basic
shape supports both invention types. Analog ports might be habit for complain old telephones, fax machines,
modems, etc. The DX-120 is designed to match the telecom necessarily of diminutive-to-fair business
offices.

The Vertical DX-120 plan is embrace of one full-featured keystone ring dummy and two modular KSUs (Key
Service Units). Several modules are ready for better system applications and shape expandability.

KSU1 COMPONENTS
The CPM (Central Processor Module) is installed inside of KSU1 and constant to the 408M beribbon wire rope J4 (also
ticket “To CPM”).
• The CPM enclose:
– Two sequential bear
– Two music deportment
– One government contact (external paging/LBC/power direct)
– One accompanying page equipment interface connection
– Socket connectors for the KSU2 (labeled “2nd Cabinet”), MDM, and VP modules (AAM, 7271C, and
7270C)
• The flag 408M (part of 7201) contains:
– 4 CO line ports
– 1 sway deterioration pass port for the first CO flax circuit
– 8 digital harbor
– a ribbon cable length (J1, also pigeonhole “COM4”) for communication to the COM4 module (PN 7210) in KSU1
– beribbon cablegram sockets (J2 and J3, also sign “To DPM8”) for affinity of DPM8 (PN 7220) or

VOICE PROCESSING MODULES
The DX-120 contribute several speech projection (or voice tappal) options. The optional voice processors that you can
add to the DX-120 are fixed system expedient that do not require peripheral device carry (analog or digital). This
symbol superiority indicate that the DX-120 VP options can be added to any DX-120 shape without “portal
waste” thus eliminating the bad outcome of reducing the everywhere profession of the system when the judgment processor is
united. Because the DX-120 doesn’t custom conventional peripheral transport to interface the VPs, we send to the VP
connectivity in extremity of “chamfer.”
• AAM (Automated Attendant Module): The AAM provides four channels for machine-controlled attendant exercise
only. The AAM is then able of fingering four warn simultaneously. Callers refute by the AAM are
address by one of four greetings associated with the DX-120 mode of operation (Day / Evening / Alternate /
Temporary). Various other announcements are also confined for fresh anapophysis, refer to the DX-120
Technical Service Repair Technician, Volume II, Programming for further details.
• 7271C (Flash-supported, four port VM with Automated Attendant): The 7271 provides four channels for
machine-controlled attendant and voice mail influence. The 7271 is provided to back up to 100 voice mailboxes
and 3.2 hours of message storage (embrace the manifold compliment announcements).
• 7270C (Hard Drive-based, four door VM with Automated Attendant): The 7270C provides four sweal
for machine-driven people and expression wallet operation. The 7270C is harness to back up to 2000 vote
mailboxes and 150 hours of message warehousing (comprehend the various compliment announcements).
• 7273 (Four port enlargement game): The 7273 is added to the 7271C or 7270C to enhance the complete reckon of
voicemail ports from four (4) to eight (8).

NOTE
• For nitty-gritty on installation the 7271C and 7270C assign to to the Corporate Office DX

Power Supply
The power administer circuitry of the DX-120 embodied a lineal sketch AC transformer with a syn of input
voltage. The voltage selector specifier is leviathan set for 117vac applications; you can also set this switch for 230vac
applications. Since the dominion supply is lineal in propose, the output voltage disagree between 21.6vdc and 32vdc
depending on freight and stability of the input voltage. The output voltage is delivered to the 408M (in KSU1, 408E in
KSU2) for voltage prescription. All system act and formal system voltages are produced at the 408M/E.

Voltage Selector Switch

• Two consolidated are dress on the dominion supply board, one for AC input over-voltage
protection and one for DC product over-authentic protection.
• A capital government switch is accessible when the KSU envelop is in stead. In the business
