The device range is set to maximum as default. This guarantees the best connection between
the handset and the base station. In idle status, the handset will not function (as it is not
transmitting). Only the base station will maintain contact with the handset via a low wireless
signal. During a call, the transmission power automatically adapts to the distance between the
base station and handset. The smaller the distance to the base, the lower the radiation.
To reduce the radiation further:
Reducing radiation by up to 80%
¤ . . . use to select Settings OK ECO DECT OK Maximum
Range Change ( = off)
Deactivating radiation in idle status
¤ . . . use to select Settings OK ECO DECT OK No
Radiation Change ( = on)
The range is also reduced with this setting.
It is not possible to use a repeater to increase the range.
To benefit from the advantages of the setting No Radiation, all registered handsets
must support this feature.
If the setting No Radiation is activated and a handset is registered to the base that
does not support this feature, No Radiation is automatically deactivated. As soon as
this handset is de-registered, No Radiation will automatically be re-activated.
The wireless connection will only be established for an incoming or outgoing call and
the connection will be delayed by about 2 seconds.
In order that a handset can establish a wireless connection with the base station more
quickly for an incoming call, it must "listen" to the base station more often, i.e. scan the
environment. This increases power consumption and reduces the standby and talk-
time of the handset.
When No Radiation is activated, there will be no range display/range alarm on the
handset. Contactability can be tested by attempting to establish a connection.
¤Press and hold the Talk key . . . the ringing tone will sound.
