Introduction - Important Information
Dear Customer!
To install your new PBX, please contact an authorized dealer and pay
close attention to the following security advice.
The manual in your hand describes the mounting, installation and first
operation of the PBX COMmander Basic.2 in detail. In order to get
certain information quickly and carefully directed, the manual will
offer you different helps and guide lines:
The table of contents on page 3 gives you an idea of content and
organization of the operating manual.
The index on page 82 helps you to find certain text portions for a
certain term.
In the texts you will be referred to other chapters or pictures with
the help of cross references.
The headlines on each page remind you in which chapter you are
at the present. On the left side of the pages the headlines of the
actual chapter will be repeated. On the right side the headlines of
the paragraph will be repeated.
Unintended use may cause e.g. functional restrictions or
interferences, the destruction of the device or in a worst
case scenario damage to persons.
- Please read the three instructions for installation, configuration
and operation carefully and store it for future use.
- Pay attention to the information in the additional brochure Guar-
antee declaration, information service in addition to this manual.
- The device described in this manual is made for the indicated use
only. If you are not sure about the intended purpose of the prod-
uct, please contact your dealer.
Touching the voltage carrying conductors or the tele-
phone connections may cause an electric shock danger-
ous to life. Also individual modules may carry danger-
ous ringer voltages during operation.
- The case may only be opened by the authorized dealer
1
.
- Installation work inside the open case as well as maintenance
services involving the keys inside the case are only allowed to be
executed by the authorized dealer
1
.
- Therefore disconnect the device (and perhaps also the accessory)
from the 230 Volt socket before opening the case.
- Make the device free of voltage by discharging existing capacitors
if necessary. The charge capacitor of the switching power supply
unit can be charged for a long time in case of a failure even after
being switched off.
- Make sure that the installation is not supplied by an additional
power supply (e.g. UPS).
- Make sure that the mains jack with protective earth for the PBX is
properly connected (according to VDE 0100). The socket has to
be freely accessible at any time.
- All devices must be installed without current. (e.g. in case of main-
tenance work).
- When using tools at live circuits, pay attention to sufficient isola-
tion.
- Use the unit with a closed case only.
- Use the unit mounted on the wall only (wall case) or securely
mounted into a rack (19" case).
- For some installation and service tasks it may be necessary to
open the PBX during operation. Make sure, that the PBX is never
left unattended when working with an open case.
- Please pay attention to the regulations when working with the 230
Volt mains voltage and with the devices connected to it.
Liquids entering the case may cause an electric shock
dangerous to life.
- Pay attention when selecting the installation location and when
cleaning the case to prevent liquids from entering the case.
Touching defective connection cables may cause an
electric shock dangerous to life. Damages to the case
and the PBX itself may also be dangerous to life.
- The mains cables of the electric devices and the connection cables
must regularly be checked for damages. If you discover damages,
the concerning cables must be replaced.
- Replace damaged components (e.g. components of the case)
immediately.
- Use original components only. Otherwise the device may be
damaged or security and EMC regulations may be violated.
- Repairs may be made by a specialist only. Talk to your author-
ized dealer or to the vendor directly.
Surge voltages e.g. generated by a thunderstorm,
may cause an electric shock dangerous to life.
- Therefore do not install the device during a thunderstorm. Also do
not work on cable connections during a thunderstorm.
Exceeding (even for a short time) the limits stated in the
technical data may cause considerable damages.
- Observe the limits stated in the technical data concerning voltage,
current, power consumption, operating temperature and humidity.
Some components are sensitive against electrostatic
discharge and can be destroyed by it.
- Discharge yourself before touching the printed circuit boards with
your hands or with tools. Touch a grounded bare metal surface like
a radiator or PC case.

Important
Security Advice
1. Authorized dealer: These are persons that are trained for this purpose (e.g.
certified electricians). They must have the necessary knowledge about the
work in an area with potentially hazardous voltage. They must also have
the knowledge about the latest electrical safety standards and require-
ments.

Surge voltages e.g. generated by a thunderstorm
and liquids entering the case, may damage or destroy
the device.
- Protect the components by installing an over-voltage protection
device.
- Pay attention when selecting the installation location and when
cleaning the case to prevent liquids from entering the case.
Mechanical loads and electromagnetic fields may
influence the operation of the PBX.
- Please avoid mechanical stress (e.g. vibrations) and the close
neighbourhood to devices that radiate electromagnetic fields or
interfere with these units (e.g. radios, HAM-radio installations,
mobile telephones, DECT base stations, etc.).
- The PBX may only be operated in closed and dry rooms. The
device may not be exposed to direct sun light and condensing.
- The unit must be protected against splashing water and exces-
sive dust.
- Pay attention to the limits for environmental temperature and
humidity in the technical data.
The PBX can be put out of function by a power failure,
defective connection lines, a defective mains socket
or by short circuits of other devices in the same house.
Make sure that the mains socket with protective earth
for the connection of the PBX has been properly connected
(according to VDE 0100).
- To switch a single emergency operation telephone from an inter-
nal to an external S
0
port during a power failure, an ISDN auto
switch (Auerswald special accessory).
- If not only a single telephone but a large portion of the PBX should
be usable during a power failure you will need an uninterruptable
power supply like e.g. the USV-5115 Telecom (special Auerswald
accessory).
- Provide a separate electric circuit for the 230V connection of the
PBX.
- The mains cables of the electric devices and the connection cables
must regularly be checked for damages. If you discover dam-
ages, the concerning cables must be replaced.
The COMmander Basic.2 is a PBX for a maximum of 48 extension
and 2 door terminals. The COMmander Basic.2 can be connected
with the public telephone network via S
0
ports (Point-to-Multipoint
and Point-to-Point connections) as well as via a S
2M
primary rate
connection.
Thanks to the option to use 2- and 4-wire cable networks the COM-
mander Basic.2 can be used in nearly every existing infrastructure.
Besides this the COMmander Basic.2 19" integrated into a 19" case
fits into structured IT/TC networks.
The so-called terminals may be system telephones, ISDN devices as
well as analog devices. The ISDN devices (e.g. ISDN telephones,
ISDN PC-controllers) should be certified Euro-ISDN devices in order
to guarantee a proper functionality.
The analog subscriber connections enable the connection of most
analog terminals, even with CLIP capabilities (telephones, fax
machines, answering machines, modems) with dual-tone multi-fre-
quency dialling (pulse dialling only with functional restrictions).
Devices with dual-tone multi-frequency dialling must have a FLASH
key (also called signal key R).
The PBX is developed to be modular. Thanks to special modules it
can be extended in steps depending on how many subscriber con-
nections or ports are needed or if a door terminal has to be operated
from each telephone.
When defining the subscriber ports, each internal ISDN S
0
and U
P0
port is counted as two independent channels that can be used by two
ISDN or system terminals at the same time. Therefore they are cal-
culated as two subscriber ports each.
Functions like e.g. telephone book, conference, Alternation and inter-
nal free of charge connections the PBX makes the daily telephone
communication simple, comfortable and time saving. In addition to
the telephony the PBX offers numerous functions such as call charge
recording.
In case of an extension with the COMmander 2TSM analog Module
there are door functions as well as different switching functions avail-
able.
Due to the integration of the COMmander Basic.2 in a local network
(LAN) the installation of special applications on the PC is not neces-
sary because the configuration interface is embedded into the inte-
grated webserver and is automatically updated together with the
operation firmware of the PBX. The administrator is platform-inde-
pendent and can configure and administrate the COMmander
Basic.2 with any IP supported operation system and a compatible
browser from anywhere in the world.
Besides this the webserver allows the comfortable administration of
the call data, telephone book entries, wake-up times, call charge
accounts, the internal Music on Hold and the data for the
Least Cost Routing by the dealer or user.
The scope of functions described here is only completely
usable with a professional installation and a correct con-
figuration of the PBX and the connected PC.
Please ask your network operator about the availability of
some ISDN service attributes. Some of these functions may be avail-
able for an extra fee.
For some functions a release via Auerswald Upgrade Center is nec-
essary. The release can only be done by a certified authorized
dealer. Only he is able to get the functions and ports via the Auer-
swald Upgrade Center.
There may be some incompatibility in combination with terminals and
devices of other vendors that adversely influence the usability of
functions.

software e.g. OSITRON CTI or also other TAPI applications may use
the TAPI functions. The PBX is connected to the server via Ethernet
interface. If the user likes to dial on the client PC, this command will
be transferred to the server. This transports it to the PBX that estab-
lishes the connection finally.
LAN-TAPI has to be released for the individual subscrib-
ers by an authorized dealer via Upgrade Center.
Attention: To test the feature, you can release the four
free of charge TAPI lines via Upgrade Center and can
use these for an unlimited period. Subsequent to the
release of the free of charge TAPI Lines you can only release addi-
tional chargeable lines.
A fully functional OSITRON CTI for three subscribers is
enclosed to the PBX which can be released by a regis-
tration at OSITRON. If additional CTI software licences
are needed, you can get them directly on the OSITRON
website under www.OSITRON.de. First of all the application can
work with its own user interface as an application, but can also work
as CTI middleware for other applications. When using the OSITRON
CTI software very often existing ODBC data bases or also application
specific solutions via COM integration are used as a frontend. If there
are additional functional requirements, OSITRON also offers the pos-
sibility of software extension.
The software OSITRON CTI server works on top of a server operat-
ing system (e.g. Windows 2000 Server or Windows 2003 Server).

Advice
2. The system telephones COMfort 1000 /1200 /2000 plus need the firmware
version 2.3A for operation with the COMmander Basic.2. If you like to con-
nect an older system telephone COMfort 1000 /1200 /2000 plus to the
COMmander Basic.2, perform a firmware update of the telephone first
(possible on the PBX systems COMpact 2204 USB, COMpact 2206 USB,
COMpact 4406 DSL, COMpact 4410 USB, COMmander Basic and COM-
mander Business).

Release with the PBX Dongle
The PBX Dongle is not a part of the scope of delivery. The PBX Don-
gle is necessary to release optional functions and can be ordered
additionally. The necessary release codes can only be ordered by an
authorized dealer
2
via the Auerswald Upgrade Center and it will be
sold to the customer.
If the whole PBX is exchanged (service case), the PBX
Dongle can be used in the new PBX. This way the
already released functions can be transferred.
List of releasable Options

Subscriber numbers in steps of 4 to a total maximum of 112 (48
are released in the scope of delivery).
Expansion of call detail records to 6000/9000 (3000 are released
in the scope of delivery)
Subscribers for LCR in steps of four (16 are released in the scope
of delivery)
Subscriber telephone numbers for LAN-TAPI in steps of 8 (the first
4 can be released free of charge)
Subscribers for the hotel function in steps of 8.
Call Through on all existing free lines (a maximum of 4 parallel
Call Through calls in the default factory setting)

...
In case of releasable options the existing amount of the
corresponding COMmander Basic.2 is extended by the
purchased option. So if 32 subscribers have been
released already for LCR in a COMmander Basic.2 and
if you purchase another 24 subscribers via the Upgrade-Center, the
corresponding COMmander Basic.2 will have 56 subscribers for LCR
after the release.
This list above may be outdated already. You will find the most cur-
rent list of releasable options in the Upgrade Center on the Auerswald
homepage.
How does a Release work?
If additional subscriber telephone numbers or PBX functions have to
be released, the dealer
2
is able to buy the number of requested sub-
scriber telephone numbers or functions via the Upgrade Center.
There the entry of the 5-digit customer number and of the 6-digit
access PIN of the authorized dealer as well as the 12-digit serial
number of the PBX Dongle (see sticker on the Dongle) will be neces-
sary.
For each released function the dealer gets a release code (20-digit).
The purchased release codes can only be entered via the web inter-
face with the corresponding access authorization (admin or perhaps
sub-admin).
After the release the functions have to be configured with the config-
uration manager.
The upgrade Center stores the expansion status of the
customers PBX based on the dongle serial number.
Therefore the already existing expansion level can be
reviewed when purchasing subscribers and functions.
1. The possible features are dependent on the used telephones.
2. The minimum requirement is a registration at Auerswald as an authorized
dealer.
3. A PBX Dongle is necessary for releases (also for free of charge releases)
(not in the scope of delivery)

Description of the Main Board COMmander Basic.2
13
The main board of the COMmander Basic.2 offers space for 5 mod-
ules in universal module slots in additional to the power supply and
the CPU. To expand the COMmander Basic.2 with maximum flexibil-
ity it is designed modular. The exchange lines and the subscriber
connections can be configured with different expansion modules. To
protect your investment already existing expansion modules of the
previous COMmander Basic can be used also (COMmander 4S
0
module only Rev. 2
1
and Rev. 3).
The power supply offers a maximum output of 75 Watt. Next to the
power transformer there is a temperature sensor that switches the
power supply off if overloaded. The power cable has a protective con-
tact plug that eliminates a separate installation of a functional earth
connection.
The processing and control logic (such as CPU, DSP, RAM, FLASH)
of the COMmander Basic.2 is also a part of the main board. Addition-
ally there is a slot for the Dongle necessary for the operation and the
release of optional functions.
In order to connect a PC or a computer system to the COMmander
Basic.2, the main board offers an Ethernet - as well as an USB inter-
face. These are used for the general access functions (configuration,
status information, Update and call data management).
Additionally to the connection with a PC via the Ethernet interface,
the connection to the Internet is also possible. If there is a broadband
Internet connection (e.g. DSL connection), the Ethernet interface
may also be used for Voice over IP (VoIP). The PBX supports up to
two parallel VoIP calls via the Ethernet interface. The use of the VoIP
access is possible for all internal subscribers, only restricted by the
corresponding exchange line authorization.
With help of the LAN-TAPI the COMmander Basic.2 offers TAPI 2.1
via the Ethernet port
The also available serial interface (V.24) is used for printing of call data
and payment data on a serial printer.
Additionally the main board has three buttons as well as three LEDs
for the status display.

To be able to connect a PC and a COMmander Basic.2, the PBX
makes available an Ethernet- as well as an USB interface. These are
used for general access functions (configuration, status information,
update).
In the following is described how a connection to the PC is estab-
lished and which requirements are necessary for the PC.
Minimum Requirements of the PC
PC with Intel Pentium 266 MHz or compatible processor

for Windows XP, Mac OS X: 128 MB, recommended 256 MB
Recommended Web browser for the configuration: Microsoft
Internet Explorer Version 6.0 or better, Netscape Navigator Ver-
sion 7.0 or better, Mozilla Firefox Version 3.6 or better;
with the support of HTML 3, HTTP 1.1, Javascript 1.0, CSS 1.0
USB interface (in case of connection via USB port) according to
USB specification 1.1 or 2.0
Network controller (in case of an Ethernet connection the PC has
to be equipped with a network controller and the corresponding
driver has to be installed)
Internet protocol TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol /Internet
Protocol)
CD-ROM or DVD drive
Mouse or compatible pointer device
SVGA graphic controller with a 800 x 600 resolution, recom-
mended 1024 x 768 and 65536 colours (16 Bit)
Connection via Ethernet Interface
For the connection to the Ethernet interface of the PBX the PC has to
be equipped with a network controller and the corresponding driver
has to be installed correctly (see manual of the network controller
vendor).
For the direct connection between the PBX and the PC you need a
so-called crossover cable (crossing cable; enclosed to the scope of
delivery). Plug one end of the crossover cable into the jack of the PBX
labelled with LAN (Mainboard) and the other end into the network
controller of the PC (pic. 2 on page 16).
If you like to integrate the PBX into an existing network, you need a
patch cable for the connection to the switch or hub (1:1).Plug one end
of a patch cable into the jack of the PBX (Mainboard) labelled with
LAN and the other end into the switch/hub (pic. 5 on page 16). To
connect the individual PCs to the switch/hub, you will also need a
patch cable.
Patch cable and crossover cable are flexible cables with a very small
bend radius. Patch cables of the category 5 (Cat 5) often consists of
4 pairs of wires, the pairs are each twisted together (Twisted Pair/
TP). The twisting is an improvement of the shielding. Additionally, the
total cable is shielded with a metal foil on the outside. This type of
cable is intended for a transfer rate of more than 20 Mbit/s. Typically
it is used for 100 Mbit/s Fast Ethernet networks, but also for 10 Mbit/
s Ethernet networks. The length of a cable must not exceed 100 m.
For a patch cable the pins of both plugs are connected 1:1 (pic. 4 on
page 16). In contrast for a crossover cable the pins 1, 2, 3 and 6 has
to be connected differently (crossed) (pic. 3 on page 16). The colour
may be different from the picture. It is important to take a look at the
matching wire pairs.
If you like to integrate the PBX into an existing network,
please contact the responsible system administrator. An
intervention in an existing network may cause considera-
ble malfunctions.

Connection via USB Interface
The connection of the PBX to an existing USB interface is done via
the enclosed cable with the two different plugs on both sides. Insert
the flat plug of the USB cable into one of the USB jacks of the PC or
USB hub (distributor) and the other plug into the socket of the PBX
labelled with USB (Main board or case jack, pic. 6).
I
The maximum length of the USB cable is 3 m (like the
delivered cable).
To establish the USB connection the PC and the PBX
have should be switched on first (see chapter First Opera-
tion on page 52). As soon as the connection has been
established, the New hardware assistant of Windows XP
will be launch to support the installation of the necessary drivers
(chapter Driver Installation for the USB Connection on page 54).
The serial interface of the PBX can be connected to a serial printer.
This is used if the user of the PBX likes to print the charges and call
data directly. Alternatively a serial printer
1
can be used for the print-
out of the hotel function (the A4 printer EPSON LX300+ is recom-
mended). The hotel printout function is used to print the accrued tel-
ephone charges of a hotel guest as an invoice (or interim invoice) with
single call data set listing.
To connect a printer a 9 poles D-sub jack is available on the main
board or on the front panel (19" version). So you need a cable with a
D-sub plugs at both ends to connect a printer to the PBX.
If the printer is not close to the PBX, it is recommended to install a
fixed wiring. For long transmission paths (over 2 m) you have to use
a shielded cable if possible.

Modules - Function and Connection of Devices
Connection to the NTPM
19
For the connection on the NTPM of the network provider the COM-
mander S
2M
Module has a 10-wire terminal block (pinout see pic. 11)
and alternatively an RJ-45 jack (pinout see pic. 12).
The NTPM installed by the network provider may have different con-
nection types depending on the manufacturer and local require-
ments:
NTPM (NT with connection panel)
NTPMKU (NT with T-shaped mounting element and copper con-
nection)
NTPMGF (NT with T-shaped mounting element and fibre con-
nection)
NTPMX-GE (NT with RJ-45 jack)
The clamp pinout of the existing NTPM can be learned in the docu-
mentation of the manufacturer.
On the subscriber side the NTPM provides a 4-wire S
2M
interface; for
each communication direction a wire pair. This will be connected to
the contacts RX- (Receive Ring), RX+ (Receive TIP), TX- (Transmit
Ring) and TX+ (Transmit TIP) of the COMmander S
2M
module as
described in the following.
If the NTPM is not supplied with e.g. an own wall-mount power sup-
ply, the operating voltage can also be provided by the PBX (chapter
NTPM Power Supply by the PBX on page 18). In this case the con-
tacts UB+ and UB- have also to be connected with the NTPM.
If there is no NT with RJ-45 jack, there normally is a fixed wiring con-
nected to terminals on the module. The name of the clamp is printed
on the circuit board behind the clamp. The terminal blocks may be
detached from the circuit board to ease the installation.
The wires are stripped at the end and inserted into the designed
opening until the clamp effect is effective. To remove a wire again,
you have to unfasten the clamp by pressing the orange button on top
of the opening with a screw driver or similar tool and pull the wire at
the same time.

Select internal/external S
0
Port
Please pay attention to the following issues when deciding which S
0
port should be an internal or external one:
Even after the extension with several modules the PBX may have
a maximum of 8 external S
0
ports (a maximum of 2 external S
0
ports in combination with COMmander S
2M
module).
If you like to connect the PBX to NTs without wiring efforts simply
via a western plug cable, you must select the S
0
ports 1 and 3 as
external S
0
ports (default factory settings). These allow the direct
connection via a western modular plug.
The S
0
ports can individually be switched over from internal to the
external by re-plugging the small jumper circuit boards on the con-
nector strips.
Please pay attention to the labelling on the COMmander 4S
0
module
and the white marks on the small jumper circuit boards and adjust
them correspondingly (compare pic. 15 and pic. 16).
Configure internal/external S
0
Port for the Opera-
tion of an ISDN Emergency Telephone
The COMmander Autoswitch (Auerswald accessory) in combination
with a COMmander 4S
0
module extends the PBX for the usage with
an ISDN emergency telephone in case of a power failure. If this addi-
tional plug is connected to a COMmander 4S
0
module, an emer-
gency ISDN telephone (e.g. the COMfort 1000 by Auerswald) is
switched from the internal S
0
port directly to the external S
0
port in
case of a power failure. This telephone remains ready for operation
by switching over to the external S
0
port and is able to telephone
externally. It gets its emergency supply directly from the public
exchange.
In order to configure the S
0
ports correspondingly, remove the small
jumper circuit boards from the connector strips of two neighbouring
S
0
ports (S
0
port 1 and 2 or S
0
port 3 and 4) and put the
COMmander Autoswitch on these connector strips instead (see
pic. 17). So you get an internal and an external S
0
port.
In order to set the emergency unit correspondingly, activate the
emergency mode authorization in a compatible ISDN telephone.
Enter an internal subscriber telephone number of the PBX as
1st MSN into the telephone. If the telephone allows further entries of
MSNs, external telephone numbers can be entered. It can be called
in case of a power failure. For this reason please use the external tel-
ephone numbers of the ISDN connection where the telephone is con-
nected to in case of a power failure. How to make these settings is
described in the manual of your telephone.
Connect the so prepared ISDN telephone to the internal S
0
port. If
there is no power failure, this telephone is operated on the internal S
0
port of the PBX like the other units that are connected there.
The MSN entered into the COMfort 1000 will be ignored in
case of a power failure. This way the COMfort 1000 reacts
to all incoming calls of the connected line (NT).
If not only a single telephone has to continue its operation
in case of a power failure but a big portion of the PBX, you are in need
of an uninterruptable power supply, e.g. the USV-5115 Telecom
(Auerswald accessory).
If the external S
0
port operates as PTP connection, the tel-
ephone used as an emergency telephone must be suita-
ble for the operation on a PTP connection and be switched
over automatically to this operation mode
On one internal S
0
port only one emergency telephone
may be operated. On all the other suitable devices this function must
be switched off by all means.
The COMmander Autoswitch can only be plugged into a
COMmander 4S
0
module Rev. 2, not into a COMmander 4S
0
module
Rev. 3 or a COMmander 8S
0
module.

Switch Termination Resistors
The termination resistors for the internal and external S
0
ports are to
be switched on or off with help of the DIL switch on the circuit board.
If the corresponding S
0
port of the PBX is at the beginning/end of sev-
eral units or if there is only one connection between two units, the
appropriate termination resistors need to be activated. (see pic. 18).
This is the case e.g. if the PBX is connected directly to the NTBA as
a single device which is always the case with a PTP connection.
(Exception: An ISDN connection box with integrated terminal resis-
tors was switched in between).
The termination resistors needs to be deactivated (see pic. 19) e.g. if
you lay an internal S
0
bus to two directions starting at the correspond-
ing internal S
0
port.
But you also have to deactivate the termination resistors if you con-
nected an external S
0
bus directly to the NT with termination resistors
in the last connection box and if you connect the PBX to one of these
connection boxes.
In the individual installation chapters the different possibilities will be
explained in detail again.
Meanings of the Light-Emitting Diodes
On the western modular plugs of S
0
port 1 and 3 you will find four
light-emitting diodes (see pic. 20). The light-emitting diodes show the

Select internal/external S
0
Port
Please pay attention to the following issues when deciding which S
0
port should be an internal or external one:
Even after the extension with several modules the
COMmander Basic may have a maximum of 8 external S0 ports
(a maximum of 2 external S
0
ports in combination with the COM-
mander S
2M
module).
If you like to connect the COMmander Basic to NTs without wir-
ing efforts simply via a western plug cable, you must select the
S
0
ports 1 and 3 as external S
0
ports (default factory settings).
These allow the direct connection via a western modular plug.
The S
0
ports 1, 2, 3 and 4 can individually be switched over from
internal to the external by re-plugging the small jumper circuit boards
on the connector strips.
Please pay attention to the labelling on the COMmander 8S
0
module
and adjust them correspondingly (compare pic. 28 and pic. 29).
Switch Termination Resistors
The termination resistors for the internal and external S
0
ports are to
be switched on or off with help of the DIL switch on the circuit board.
If the corresponding S
0
port of the PBX is at the beginning/end of sev-
eral units or if there is only one connection between two units, the
appropriate termination resistors need to be activated. (see pic. 30).
This is the case e.g. if the PBX is connected directly to the NTBA as
a single device which is always the case with a PTP connection.
(Exception: An ISDN connection box with integrated terminal resis-
tors was switched in between).
The termination resistors needs to be deactivated (see pic. 31) e.g. if
you lay an internal S
0
bus to two directions starting at the correspond-
ing internal S
0
port.
But you also have to deactivate the termination resistors if you con-
nected an external S
0
bus directly to the NT with termination resistors
in the last connection box and if you connect the PBX to one of these
connection boxes.
In the individual installation chapters the different possibilities will be
explained in detail again.
Meanings of the Light-Emitting Diodes
On the western modular plugs of S
0
port 1 and 3 you will find four
light-emitting diodes (see pic. 32). Additionally, you will find four more
LEDs on the board. The light-emitting diodes show the activity on the
different S
0
ports.
LED glimmers: One B-channel is busy.
LED glows: Both B-channels are busy.
LED short flash: D-channel message received.
LED is flashing with 0,5 Hz: Layer 1 is activated.

An S
0
port that was configured as an internal S
0
port, offers similar
features like an ISDN Point-to-Multipoint exchange line connection.
Here you can also connect up to eight ISDN units, a maximum of two
of them without an own power supply (that is the case with most of
the ISDN telephones). All the devices should be certified Euro-ISDN
devices in order to guarantee a proper functionality.
On all S
0
ports the connection of ISDN devices via a fixed wiring and
installed ISDN wall jacks to the four clamps b2, b1, a1 and a2 is pos-
sible (see chapter Installation of additional ISDN Wall Jacks on
page 27).
If you use the S
0
port 1 or 3 as internal S
0
ports, you also have the
option to use the built-in western modular plugs. Thanks to this you
will have a direct connection between the PBX and an ISDN device
or an ISDN Multiplug (the connection cable of an ISDN device may
have a maximum length of 10 m). In case of ISDN devices with an
own power supply you have to plug them into to the 230 V mains.
Then all ISDN devices must be configured.
An ISDN Device directly attached to the PBX
If you only like to connect one single ISDN device to the internal S
0
port, you can use the western modular plug that is on the circuit
board, providing that it is the S
0
port 1 or 3. The connection cable
must not be longer than 10 m.
Several ISDN units connected to one ISDN Multi-
plug
The western modular plug available for the S
0
port 1 and 3 on the cir-
cuit board can also be used for the connection of an ISDN Multiplug.
Use this option only in case all the ISDN devices that are to be con-
nected to the corresponding internal S
0
port are operating next to the
PBX and you like to do this without installing ISDN wall jacks. The
specialized dealers will offer you the ISDN Multiplug for this kind of
wiring (Auerswald accessory).
The connecting cables of the ISDN devices and the connecting cable
between the PBX and the ISDN multiple socket may have a maxi-
mum length of 10 m. The termination resistor on the module must be
activated for the corresponding S
0
port.
Installation of additional ISDN Wall Jacks
If the ISDN devices should not be operated next to the PBX, they
must be connected via firmly attached ISDN wall jacks. In this case
the ISDN wall jacks are attached with a cable and connected in par-
allel to the internal S
0
port (internal S
0
bus).
The connection of the internal S
0
bus is made to the four clamps b2,
b1, a1 and a2 for the wall case. This clamp naming is printed behind
the clamp on the circuit board. The terminal blocks may be
detached from the circuit board to ease the installation.
The wires, stripped at the end, are shoved into the assigned openings
(see pic. 34) until the right position for proper contact has been
reached. In order to remove a wire again, you have to open the clamp
by pressing the orange key that is on top of the opening with a screw
driver or a similar tool.
Normally you use an un-shielded twisted pair cable for wiring instal-
lation (J-YY 2x2x0,6 St III Bd). Under certain circumstances (e.g.
near a strong radio/television station or a power cable), you have to
use a shielded twisted pair cable.

In any case it should be twisted pair cable with four wire positioning
like in pic. 35. Here both sending data wires (a1 and b1) as well as
both receiving data wires (a2 and b2) are positioned vis-a-vis. This
cable configuration will help to compensate interferences considera-
bly.
If you use western modular wall jacks with the clamp labelling 1a, 1b,
2a and 2b, you connect the clamp b2 of the S0 module with the clamp
2b of the first wall jack socket, b1 with 1b and so on (see pic. 36).
Then the clamps of the first wall jack socket are connected with the
corresponding same marked clamp of the second wall jack socket.
In the last wall jack socket a resistor of 100 (power rating min.
0,25 W) must be inserted between the clamps 1a and 1b and also 2a
and 2b each. The so-called termination resistors are avoiding
unwanted reflections.
If you use RJ45 wall jacks you only use the middle four clamps that
are marked with 3, 4, 5, 6, instead of all eight existing clamps. How to
connect them to the PBX is shown in pic. 36.
You can buy many different types of wall jacks. They are sometimes
called IAE (ISDN-Anschluss-Einheit), UAE (Universal-Anschluss-
Einheit), RJ-45, Western modular, wall jacks with integrated termina-
tion resistors as well as shielded wall jacks belong to them. In order
to make the setting as simple as possible, please pay attention to the
following points: Use only wall jacks of one type for one S
0
bus and
check the wall jacks before installation. The pin assignment may be
different compared to the usually used products or the termination
resistors are integrated into the ISDN wall jacks.
Short passive Bus (one Direction)
The S
0
bus consists of up to twelve parallel connected western mod-
ular wall jacks. But the restriction applies that a maximum of eight
ISDN devices or two ISDN units without an own power supply are
attached like on the NT (Point-to-Multipoint connection).
The maximum length of the total bus wiring should be between 100 m
and 200 m. As at any rewiring position (ISDN wall jack etc.) reflec-
tions occur, the maximum quantity of allowed clamp positions (12)
has to be respected. This and the cable quality as well as the proper
adjustment of the termination resistors can be the key factor for a
proper function of the S
0
bus.
When laying the S
0
bus into one direction, on the last ISDN wall jack
the termination resistors need to be installed. At the other end the ter-
mination resistors of the PBX are switch on via DIL switches on the
S
0
module (see pic. 37).
Short passive Bus (two Directions)
The S
0
bus consists of up to twelve parallel connected western mod-
ular wall jacks. But the restriction applies that a maximum of eight
ISDN devices or two ISDN units without an own power supply are
attached like on the NT (Point-to-Multipoint connection).
The maximum length of the total bus wiring should be between 100 m
and 200 m. As at any rewiring position (ISDN wall jack etc.) reflec-
tions occur, the maximum quantity of allowed clamp positions (12)
has to be respected. This and the cable quality as well as the proper
adjustment of the termination resistors can be the key factor for a
proper function of the S
0
bus.
If you lay the S
0
bus into two directions, the termination resistors on
the S
0
module are switched off via DIL switch. Instead you must
install the necessary termination resistors on both bus ends that
means in the last ISDN wall jack (see pic. 38). The maximum length
of the S
0
bus and the maximum quantity of ISDN wall jacks is the
addition of both bus parts in this case.

Point-to-Point Bus
In case of a point-to-point bus only one single wall jack is connected
to the internal S
0
port. As there will be no additional reflections, a
cable length up to 1000 mtr. is possible.
Termination resistors must be installed in the wall jack. The termina-
tion resistors of the corresponding S
0
port have to be switched on.
pic. 39 shows a Point-to-Point bus at COMmander Basic.2 19".
Extended passive Bus
In case of an extended passive bus there is no wall jack on the first
450 mtr. (maximum). In this bus configuration the wall jacks must only
be connected to the last 50 mtr. As there are no additional reflections
on the first 450 mtr., this cable length is possible. Termination resis-
tors must be installed in the last wall jack. The termination resistors
of the corresponding S
0
port have to be switched on. pic. 40 shows
an extended passive bus at COMmander Basic.2 19".
Short passive Bus (Star Wiring)
In a star wiring two wall jacks are connected to the internal S
0
-Port
via two single wires. The wiring length may be 75 mtr. each.
Termination resistors must be installed in both wall jacks. The termi-
nation resistors of the corresponding S
0
port have to be switched off.

Connection to the NT
31
For the connection to the ISDN, one or more NT with the European
protocol DSS1 (Euro-ISDN) are necessary.
The external S
0
ports of the PBX are designed for the following kind
of connections:
Basic connection as Point-to-Point connection.
Basic connection as Point-to-Multipoint connection.
As there are some differences depending on the kind of connection
PTP connection or PTMP connection referring to the NT, we subdi-
vided the text into the chapter Connection to a Point-to-Point ISDN
Line on page 31 and chapter Connection to a Point-to-Multipoint
ISDN Line on page 32.
Connection to a Point-to-Point ISDN Line
It is possible to operate only one ISDN device on one NT with PTP
connection that means only the PBX in our case. All additional ISDN
devices are operated as internal subscriber of the PBX.
1st option (pic. 45): If the NTBA is next to the PBX, you put one end
of the enclosed ISDN cable into the western modular jack of the
corresponding S
0
module and the other end in one of the western
modular jacks of the NT. The termination resistors must be switched
on in the NT as well as for the corresponding S
0
port of the PBX.
2nd option (pic. 46): If the NT is in a longer distance to the PBX, it is
necessary to use fixed wiring with an ISDN wall jack at the end (exter-
nal S
0
bus). One end of the enclosed ISDN cable is put into the west-
ern modular jack of the corresponding S
0
module and the other end
into the ISDN wall jack. The termination resistors in the NT must be
switched on. On the other end,
the termination resistors are built into the ISDN wall jack
or on the S
0
port of the PBX the termination resistors have to be
switched on.
Advice concerning the cables and ISDN wall jacks to be used as well
as the assignment will be find in chapter Installation of additional
ISDN Wall Jacks on page 27. The maximum distance between NT
and PBX may be 1000 m.
3rd option (pic. 44): If you configure one of the S
0
ports without west-
ern modular jack as an external S
0
port, you will have to use the 4-
pole connection clamp of this corresponding S0 port on the S
0
mo-
dule. Connect these with the clamps in the NT. The termination resis-
tors must be switched on in the NT as well as on the corresponding
S
0
port of the PBX. Advice corresponding the cable to be used can
be learned in the chapter Installation of additional ISDN Wall Jacks
on page 27. The maximum distance between NT and PBX may be
1000 m.

1st option (pic. 47): If the NTBA is next to the PBX, put one end of the
enclosed ISDN cable into the western modular jack of the corres-
ponding S
0
port on the S
0
module and the other end into one of the
western modular jack of the NT. The termination resistors must be
switched on in the NT as well as on the corresponding S
0
port of the
PBX.
2nd option (pic. 48): If the NT is in a longer distance to the PBX and/
or more than two devices will directly connect with the NT, a fixed wir-
ing to the NT and ISDN wall jacks are necessary (external S
0
bus).
One end of the enclosed ISDN cable will be put into the western mod-
ular jack of the corresponding S
0
port on the S
0
module and the other
end into one of the existing ISDN wall jacks of the external S
0
bus.
The fixed wiring of an external S
0
bus to the NT (PTMP connection)
is similar to the wiring of an internal S
0
bus (chapter Installation of
additional ISDN Wall Jacks on page 27). If the PBX is connected to
the last ISDN wall jack,
the termination resistors may be built into the last ISDN wall jack
or the termination resistors have to be switched on at the S
0
port
of the PBX.
If the PBX is not connected to the last ISDN wall jack,
the termination resistors must be built into in the last ISDN wall
jack
and the termination resistors must be switched off on the corre-
sponding S
0
port.
3rd option (pic. 44 on page 31): If you configure one of the S
0
ports
without available western modular jack as an external S
0
port, you
must use the 4-pole connection clamp of the S
0
module for the corre-
sponding S
0
port. Connect this with the clamps of the NT. Advice on
the preferred cable types can be found in the chapter Installation of
additional ISDN Wall Jacks on page 27.
If there are further passive devices directly connected to
the NT in parallel to the PBX and if the NT is equipped
with a 230 Volt power supply, it must be plugged in. If the
PBX only is operated directly on the NT, you may leave
the NT unpowered in order to save energy.

The U
P0
port is a 2-wire interface that is e.g. useful if existing 2-wire
connections of an analog installation have to be used for the connec-
tion of ISDN or system telephones. When using the wire diameter
0,6 mm the connection between the PBX and the wall jacks may be
up to 1000 m long.
To prevent interference problems, install the wires carefully and twist
the wire pairs. Besides this avoid longer parallel wire layouts espe-
cially next to power lines.
To adapt from 2- to 4 wires (for ISDN devices/telephones as well as
the system telephones 1000/1200/2000 plus, COMfort DECT and
COMfortel DECT) the U
P0
/S
0
Adapter is needed at the end of the con-
nection line. This can be connected to the U
P0
-Port with help of screw
clamps (pic. 51 on page 35) and also via an ISDN wall jack (pic. 52 on
page 35) and the delivered cable.
The system telephones COMfortel 1500/2500 can directly be con-
nected to the U
P0
-Port the via an ISDN wall jack (pic. 53 on page 35).
Only in case that you like to use two telephones on one U

of the clamp is printed in front of the clamp on the circuit board. The
clamp blocks can be detached from the board to ease the installation
work. The wires are stripped at the end and inserted into the designed
opening (see pic. 54) until the clamp effect is effective. To remove a
wire again, you have to unfasten the clamp by pressing the orange
button on top of the opening with a screw driver or similar tool and pull
the wire at the same time.
Connect a pair of clamps (e.g. Scr 1) with both screw clamps of a

You can buy many different types of wall jacks. They are sometimes
called IAE (ISDN-Anschluss-Einheit), UAE (Universal-Anschluss-
Einheit), RJ-45, Western modular, wall jacks with integrated termina-
tion resistors as well as shielded wall jacks belong to them. In order
to make the setting as simple as possible, please pay attention to the
following points: Use only wall jacks of one type for one S
0
bus and
check the wall jacks before installation. The pin assignment may be
different compared to the usually used products or the termination
resistors are integrated into the ISDN wall jacks (these have to be
removed if they are used for the U
P0

Modules - Function and Connection of Devices


Connection of analog Devices (Telephone, Fax Machine and others)
37
Thanks to the COMmander 8a/b module you can connect eight ana-
log telephones, fax machines etc. The connection of these devices to
the clamps will be made with attached wall jacks that are connected
with telecommunications cable (e.g. JYY 0,6 mm). You are in need
of one wire pair per subscriber or per wall jack. If you use a wire diam-
eter of 0,6 mm, the lines may have a distance of 800 m between the
PBX and the wall jacks.
In order to avoid interferences, lay the wires carefully and use twisted
pair cables. And avoid longer parallel leading of the lines especially
next to power supply cables.
If you only like to connect telephones or combined fax machines, the
TAE single jacks with F code (a jack named with F) are sufficient.
But for the connection of fax machines, modems and answering
machines you need the TAE wall jacks that additionally have a jack
with N code. The pinout of commercially available TAE wall jacks are
displayed in pic. 60.
The subscriber clamp pairs are labelled with Scr 1 to Scr 8. This
clamp labelling is printed in front of the clamp on the circuit board.
The clamp blocs can be detached from the controller to simplify the
installation. The wires, stripped at the end, are shoved into the
assigned openings (see pic. 58) until the right position for proper con-
tact has been reached. In order to remove a wire again, you have to
open the clamp by pressing the orange key that is on top of the open-
ing with a screw driver or a similar tool.
Connect each clamp pair (e.g. Scr 1) with the connector a and b of a
single wall jack (see pic. 59). The connection plugs of telephones or
combined fax machines are plugged into the jacks named with F.
But the connection plugs of other devices are plugged into the jacks
named with N.
The analog subscriber connections are not intended for
the connection of external extensions. If a connecting line
for a telephone has to be laid outdoors, the PBX will have
to be protected by a lightning protection against overvolt-
age from this line. The lightning protection modules BSM-
200 and BSM-400 (Auerswald accessory) are suitable for this pur-
pose.

Connection of analog Devices via Patch Panel
(19" Case)
When installing the cables and wall jacks you have several options
for the selection of the material. In the following three variants will be
presented proceeding from an existing additional passive patch
panel with their advantages and disadvantages.
1st variant: You are laying a two-wire cable for each terminal and
using TAE wall plugs. (The contact pinout of the western modular
jacks is shown in pic. 61).
Advantage: Low material costs; eventually already existing cables
can be reused; incompatible plugging in of other devices is not pos-
sible.
Disadvantage: A later change to an ISDN device requires a greater
deal of energy concerning installation.
2nd variant: You are laying a CAT 5 cable for each device and install
CAT5 wall plugs or you use an existing structured wiring (see also
chapter Structured Cabling on page 30).
Advantage: The reconfiguration to another device type is possible
without installation changes.
Disadvantage: High cost for material; incompatible plugging in of
other devices is possible; for the connection of telephones to the wall
plugs you need a standard adapter RJ45 to TAE.
3rd variant: You are laying a CAT5 wire for each terminal, but you
will only use two wires for the connection of a TAE wall jack.
Advantage: Devices can be connected directly without adapter,
incompatible plugging in of other devices is not possible, the recon-
figuration to another device type is possible by changing the wall
jacks only.
Disadvantage: Comparable high material cost.
Please pay attention to the wiring length in case of the
2nd and 3rd variant. A wiring length that is realizable in
case of the operation of an analog unit, may offer prob-
lems if you reconfigure to an ISDN device (unless you use
U
P0
instead of S
0
).
Please note that you are in need of TAE wall jacks with F code
(sleeve is marked with F) if you connect telephones and fax TAMs.
But if you like to connect additional devices such as answering
machines and fax machines you will need TAE wall jacks with N code
(jack is marked with N).
If you like to connect without the RJ45-TAE adapter in case of the 2nd
variant and like to retrofit your telephones with western modular
plugs, please note that different telephones are using different con-
nection wire norms.

Description of the COMmander 2TSM analog Module
39
The COMmander 2TSM analog module is a door-/switch-/music-
module. Thanks to this you can connect or control two door terminals,
each consists of a door handsfree system, a door opener and two
door bell buttons. Herewith the door ringing to all internal subscribers
will be possible as well as the door conversation and door opening.
And it is possible to connect an external ringer (second ringer bell) for
additional signalization.
In order to execute different switching and controlling processes, the
module has a total of six relays that have to be configured corre-
spondingly to the special purpose. Four of these relays are pre-con-
figured for controlling both door terminals. If no door terminals are to
be controlled, these relays can be reconfigured for other uses.
In case that not all door bell button inputs are necessary in connection
with a door terminal, the inputs can be reconfigured to alarm con-
tacts.
Alternatively to the existing internal Music on Hold you have a cinch
connector (mono) on the controller for feeding in external Music on
Hold or text announcements.
The level of the recorded NF signal can be adjusted with a trimmer
on the controller.
With this connector also a new internal Music on Hold can be
recorded.

Uses for the 12 Volt Power Supply
The 12 volt operation voltage that is available on the
COMmander 2TSM analog module is limited to app. 100 mA per
door terminal. So it can be used e.g. for supplying the door terminal
systems (if you use the TFS-Dialog 100, TFS-Dialog or TFS-Dialog
pro by Auerswald) or the door bell button inputs.
If the operation voltage is used for supplying the door terminal sys-
tem, it can be switched with a jumper plug to the relay contact TS12
(or TS22 for door terminal 2) (see pic. 63). If the operation voltage is
not used for supplying the door terminal system, the jumper plug
must be removed or inserted as demonstrated in pic. 64.
The 12 Volt operation voltage can also be sourced alternatively from
the connection clamp +12Volt.
The Volume Control for the external Music on Hold
You can adjust the volume of the external Music on Hold with the trim-
mer on the module next to the cinch connector.

Modules - Function and Connection of Devices
Connect a Door Terminal for Door Conversation and Door Opener via Telephone
41
The COMmander 2TSM analog module allows the connection and
the controlling of two door terminals, each consisting of a door hands-
free system (e.g. TFS-Dialog 100, TFS-Dialog or TFS-Dialog pro by
Auerswald), a door opener and two door bell buttons. This allows the
door ringing to be signalled to all internal subscriber. All internal sub-
scribers can call the door and open the door.
If you like to connect other manufacturers door terminal systems
instead of a door terminal system by Auerswald, the speech trans-
mission of these systems must work in two-wire technic according to
FTZ-123-D12-0 (a signal line and a ground connection).
But if the door terminal system to be connected works with four-wire
technic (two wires per call direction), you must interconnect a con-
verter (e.g. TSA-500 by Auerswald) from two- to four-wire connec-
tion.
You can get wiring diagrams for the connection of different door ter-
minal systems to the PBX on our CD or on our homepage.
Connect a Door Terminal System
For switching the operation voltage of a door terminal system
TFS-Dialog 100, TFS-Dialog or TFS-Dialog pro you are in need of the
1st relay with the clamp labelled TS11/TS12 (pic. 65) for the first door
terminal.
A 12 volt operation voltage is at your disposal on the
COMmander 2TSM analog module, too. This must be connected to
the clamp TS12 with the jumper plug. The speech transmission is
established via a two-wiring connection to TNF1 and TGND.
Connect a Door Bell Button
If there is already a house wiring with ringing transformer and door
bell ringing, the door bell button inputs of the PBX can be integrated
into the wiring like in pic. 66. For this reason the currently used ringing
transformer must offer a voltage of 5-15 VAC/DC.
If there is no ringing transformer, the 12 Volt operation voltage of the
PBX can be used by a door bell button to trigger the door bell button
inputs (pic. 67). If the door bell button inputs were reconfigured, a
GND can be connected instead of the 12 Volt output.
Due to the door bell button electronics used in the TFS-
Dialog 100 the use of the Low Level is not possible with
this door terminal system.

Connect a Door Opener
You are in need of the 2nd relay with the clamp labelled TO11/TO12
(pic. 68) for switching the door opener for the first door terminal.
As the necessary supply voltage is not offered by the PBX, the use of
an external transformer is necessary. Please pay attention to the
maximum ratings of the relay contacts (50 V/1 A).
If the customer likes to notice the ringing at places where he cannot
hear his telephone, you can connect a second ringer bell at the
clamps labelled 2nd Bell/Zweitkl. and GND as shown in pic. 69.
The specifications for the second ringer bell can be learned in the
chapter Technical Data on page 40. It is not possible to connect a
simple door bell.
If you do not need all the door bell button inputs for the door ringing,
you are able to use the door bell button inputs But1/Klin1 to But4/
Klin4 as alarm inputs. In order to obtain one alarm input, the door bell
button input has to be reconfigured.
An alarm input can be connected to an alarm indicator output like in
pic. 70. You will get more details in the chapter Technical Data on
page 40.

Connection of an Input Device for external Music on Hold
43
Alternatively to the internal Music on Hold you can also connect an
external music device (e.g. a MP3 player) to a Cinch connector
(marked with Audio In) on the COMmander 2TSM analog module
(pic. 71). If necessary you are able to switch on/off the external music
source with the relay function of the PBX.
Another option may be the connection of a digital music and speech
memory that continuously plays a melody or a text.
The volume control for the external Music on Hold happens via a trim-
mer that is on the module near the Cinch sleeve (labelled with Vol-
ume Audio In, see pic. 62 on page 39).
With this input, you can also record a music that will be stored as the
new internal Music on Hold in the PBX.
If you use external Music on Hold, pay attention to the
copyright issues for certain music. Please contact the
corresponding copyright holder or music agency.
On the COMmander 2TSM analog Module you have a Cinch connec-
tor (labelled Audio Out) as an audio output (for announcements). If
you like to use the Cinch connector as an audio output for announce-
ments, you will have to connect an amplified loudspeaker system or
an active loudspeaker.
You will also be able to switch on/off the loudspeaker system or
another device with the relay function of the PBX.

Weight app. 2,4 kg
Open the Case
Touching the voltage carrying conductors or the tele-
phone connections may cause an electric shock danger-
ous to life. Also individual modules may carry danger-
ous ringer voltages during operation.
- The case may only be opened by the authorized dealer
1
.
- Therefore disconnect the device (and perhaps also the accessory)
from the 230 Volt socket and from the network provider connec-
tion before opening the case.
- The cover above the power supply unit serves as a touching pro-
tection against dangerous voltage and must not be removed. The
charging electrolytic capacitor of the switching power supply unit
may be loaded for a long time after being switched off in case of a
failure.
- Therefore do not install the device during a thunderstorm.
- Additionally observe the advice in the chapter Security Advice on
page 6.
When opening the case cover you are in need of the supplied special
tool. Push the special opener tool into the opening as shown in pic. 73
and pull the handle a little bit to the front. Now open the case by pull-
ing the special opener tool to the top away from the case. The cover
is pulled to the top at the same time. Slide the cover (app. 15 cm) so
that you are able to take off the case vertically from the bottom casing
without obstacle.
Separate the Case Components
Touching the voltage carrying conductors or the tele-
phone connections may cause an electric shock danger-
ous to life. Also individual modules may carry danger-
ous ringer voltages during operation.
- Therefore disconnect the device (and perhaps also the accessory)
from the 230 Volt socket before opening the case.
The case is consisting, the top cover excluded, of two different com-
ponents: the light gray mounting frame and the blue module holder.
To mount the PBX to the wall these two case components have to be
separated from each other.
Unlock with the thumb of one hand the latch of one module holder like
shown in pic. 74 and pull it with the other hand upwards at an angle
from the mounting frame.

Cable Lead-throughs
Before you attach the installation chassis onto the wall you have to
prepare the future cable lead-through. Depending on which side you
like to lead the cables through, at the right or left side of the cable
spacing, you open the cable lead-through passings in the installation
chassis (pic. 75).
If the USB case jack integrated on the left side has to be used for the
connection to a PC, you cannot use this opening/aperture as a cable
lead-through. If necessary the screws may be removed and the
socket may be rebuilt in the opposite direction.
Select Mounting Location and mount the Device on
the Wall
Liquids entering the case may cause an electric shock
dangerous to life or may damage or destroy the device.
- Pay attention when selecting the installation location to prevent liq-
uids from entering the case.
- The PBX may only be operated in closed and dry rooms.
- The relative humidity may be between 10% and 75%.
- No condensation may occur.
- The unit must be protected against splashing water and exces-
sive dust.
Too high temperatures may lead to overheating and
may damage the device.
- The surrounding temperature must be from 0C up to + 40C.
- The device may not be exposed to direct sun light.
- Please make sure that the mounting location is properly ventilated
to dissipate the generated heat (the mounting e.g. in a closet with-
out air circulation is not allowed).
Additionally observe the following criteria when selecting
the location and while mounting:
- Above of the case must be a free space of at least 150 mm for
putting on or removing the case cover.
- Near the installation location you are in need of an freely accessi-
ble 230 Volt wall socket with protective (safety) earth for the
power supply. Please make sure that the wall socket for the con-
nection of the PBX is properly connected (according to electric
safety regulations).
- The PBX must be next to the NT/NTPM in order to avoid long
transmission ways between both units. If it is not possible, a fixed
wiring (S
0
bus) between both units will be necessary.
- Please avoid mechanical stress (e.g. vibrations) and the close
neighbourhood to devices that radiate electromagnetic fields or
interfere with these units (e.g. radios, HAM-radio installations,
mobile telephones, DECT base stations, etc.).
- The PBX must be mounted vertically. Please observe also that
the advice top (see arrow in pic. 76) printed on the installation
case really is at the top.
The installation material (screws and wall plugs) is part of the extent
of supply. The installation chassis can be used as a drilling template
at the same time.
Put the mounting frame against the place designated for mount-
ing and mark the drilling holes on the wall through the three
mounting holes (pic. 76).
Make sure that around the marks no hidden supply pipes or
cables are in the wall.
Drill the holes with a diameter of 6 mm.
Now mount the installation case with the screws and wall plugs
on the wall.

Assembly of the Case Components
If the installation case is firmly mounted on the wall, the module frame
can be re-attached again. In order not to squeeze the cable of the
case plug, roll it up near the plug in the cable space. Hold the module
frame diagonal with the upper edge to the wall and hang it into the top
of the installation case (pic. 77). Then close the bottom part of the
module frame onto the installation case until the locking clicks into
place.
Extend or modify the PBX
Touching the voltage carrying conductors or the tele-
phone connections may cause an electric shock danger-
ous to life. Also individual modules may carry danger-
ous ringer voltages during operation.
- Therefore disconnect the device (and perhaps also the accessory)
from the 230 Volt socket before you plug a module in or
remove it.
Some components are sensitive against electrostatic
discharge and may be destroyed by it.
- Discharge yourself before touching the printed circuit boards with
your hands or with tools. Touch a grounded bare metal surface like
a radiator or PC case.
To plug a module in, insert the module between both controller lock-
ing levers and press it down vertically to the mainboard until it clicks
into position. (pic. 78).
Please pay attention to the fact that you have made the necessary
settings on each module before you put the module in again. Espe-

.
- Therefore disconnect the device (and perhaps also the accessory)
from the 230 Volt socket and from the network provider connec-
tion before opening the case.
- The cover above the power supply unit serves as a touching pro-
tection against dangerous voltage and must not be removed. The
charging electrolytic capacitor of the switching power supply unit
may be loaded for a long time after being switched off in case of a
failure.
- Therefore do not install the device during a thunderstorm.
- Additionally observe the advice in the chapter Security Advice on
page 6.
- Before closing the case, pay attention that the earth protection
wires are still properly connected and no uninsulated cables are
loosely lying around in the case.
To open the case you will need of a flat tool, e.g. a screwdriver. First
remove both cover plates at the sides. Lift it from the case with help
of the previously mentioned tool. Insert the tool at the front or rear/
back third (pic. 82).
Now remove the top cover plate. Perhaps it is secured with four
screws (not in the default factory setting) that have to be removed
first. Lift the cover plate e g. on the front left edge sideways from the
case (pic. 83). Then move it slightly upwards so that it will not be able
to lock again. Do it just like that with the rear left edge. Then you can
remove the plate from the case.

Insert/Change Connection Adapters
If modules should be added or modules should be exchanged it may
be necessary to exchange the connection adapters of the front panel
also.
For the module COMmander 2TSM analog a special connection
adapter COMmander BA-TSM is necessary.
For the module COMmander S
2M
a special connection adapter COM-
mander BA-S
2M
is necessary.
All other modules can be connected to the patch connector adapters
COMmander BA-P08. These offer 8 Western modular jacks each
and connection options for one of the following modules:
COMmander 4 S
0
module
COMmander 8 U
P0

module (two connection adapters COM-
mander BA-P08 are necessary)
If some cavities have never been used before, you may have to
remove the blind plates from the front plate first (see pic. 86) to be
able to put in a connection adapter in this new cavity (see pic. 87).
Pinout of the Connection Adapters
The modules and the connection adapters have to be connected with
help of ribbon cables. For this purpose the modules are equipped
with an additional socket next to the connection jacks.
The COMmander 2TSM analog module is connected to the corre-
sponding connection adapter in addition to the ribbon cable with a
Cinch cable to the connections for Audio In or Audio out.
The patch connection adapters COMmander BA-P08 and their allo-
cation for different modules is presented in pic. 88 on page 50,
pic. 89 on page 51 and pic. 90 on page 51.
On the connection adapter COMmander BA-S
2M
the six LEDs as well
as the Western modular jack (allocation see pic. 94 on page 51) of
the COMmander S2M module are connected to the front plate.
With the connection adapter COMmander BA-TSM all the connec-
tions existing on the COMmander 2TSM analog module are con-
nected to the front panel. Instead of the clamps three Western mod-
ular jacks are used (pinout see pic. 91 on page 51 and pic. 93 on
page 51).
Try to shorten the paths when distributing the modules in
the module holder.
Modules produced before 2003 (COMmander 4S

described below how to configure PC and PBX to provide a seamless
collaboration.
Settings in the Default Factory Settings
The settings listed in the table are active in the default factory settings
of the PBX and have to be observed during the first configuration and
operation.
Connect the PC
Connect the PBX via Ethernet interface to a PC (see page 15).
Please observe the minimum requirements of the PC on page 15.
Plug one end of the cross over cable into the PBX jack labelled LAN
and the other end into the network card of the PC.
If you like to integrate the PBX into an existing network
consult your responsible system administrator. A change
to an existing network may cause severe functional prob-
lems.
or
Connect the PBX via USB interface to a PC (see page 17). Please
observe the minimum requirements of the PC on page 15. Plug the
flat plug of the USB cable into the USB jack of the PC and the other
plug of the cable into PBX jack labelled USB.
The maximum length of the USB cable is 3 m (such as the

Windows 98 SE and Me on page 54; for Windows 2000 on page 55;
for Windows XP on page 55. The correct installation of the drivers is
required. For information about the connection via USB interface
read the description on page 54 or for connection via Ethernet inter-
face the documentation of the network card vendor.
If you connect the PC via Ethernet you have to configure
a static IP address on the PC (z. B. 192.168.0.241). Make
sure that the PC and the PBX are in the same subnet to
reach the web server. Observe the default factory settings
on page 53.
If you like to integrate the PBX into an existing network, consult your
responsible system administrator and make the configuration set-
tings according to his orders.

Enter the IP address of the PBX.
Click on the button OK.
The recording of a D channel protocol is also possible
from remote. Please check the chapter Remote Configu-
ration of the PBX on page 67 to page 71. Start the D
channel protocol instead of the log in to the web inter-
face. Enter the local IP address of the PBX under IP Address
(http://192.168.193.240 in the default factory settings).
The D channel decoder uses the port 42225 in case of an external
access from the Internet via a router. Therefore the port 42225 has to
be forwarded within the router configuration.
When entering the IP address in the dialogue interface selection an
existing port has to be skipped.

For the PPP dial-in to a remote COMmander Basic.2 you will need a
PC with a installed Dial-up Networking via ISDN PC-adapter. In the

is described.
It is required that an ISDN connection via ISDN PC-adapter or an
Auerswald USB device (e.g. a COMfort 2000 plus) and the necessary
driver is installed. The connection via analog modems is not possible.
In the following example a Dial-up Networking connection via Auer-
swald USB device will be configured. USB driver, CAPI driver and
NDISWAN driver have already been installed and configured (please
consult with the CAPI/TAPI manual coming with the Auerswald USB
device).
Perform the settings as described for your operating system (for Win-
dows 98 SE and Me on page 74; for Windows 2000 on page 75; for
Windows XP on page 76).
Instead of the number of the Internet Service Provider the remote
switching and configuration number of the remote configured COM-
mander Basic.2 is entered as the number to be dialled.
Instead of the user name/password of the Internet Service Provider
the user name external and the external PIN of the remote config-
ured COMmander Basic.2 is entered (or Admin user name and PIN
or SubAdmin user name (in this case the internal number of the user)
and PIN).
If the configured remote IP address (http://
192.168.193.241 in the default factory setting) is already
in use in the network of the PC and if there is a collision
of IP addresses, this will lead to complications. To avoid
