The basic Panasonic KX-TA624 system has a basic capacity of 8 extensions and 3 exchange lines. It is capable of supporting Panasonic analogue
proprietary phones (Panasonic 7050, 7020, 7130) and/or single line devices such as ordinary phones, fax and data modems. With
the addition of option cards, the system can expand up to 6 exchange lines and 24 extensions with the addition of optional cards.
Line jack wiring
The system is supplied with eight plug-ended extension cords that plug directly into eight sockets (numbered 01 to 08) located on top of the system. The loose end of the cord (no plug) must be terminated to telephone sockets.
The wiring colour code is as follows:
Black to pin 3 on socket
Red to pin 5 on socket
Green to 2 on socket
Yellow to 4 on socket
and 5 are the Voice pair
and 4 are the Data pair
Proprietary Panasonic telephones (7050, 7020 & 7130)
A Panasonic 7130 is used to configure the system and must be connected to the first extension jack (marked jack 01). All proprietary phones (Panasonic 7050, 7020, 7130) must be connected via a secondary LJU (2/3A). All four wires (as shown above) must be connected.
Ordinary telephone set
Ordinary phones can be connected to extension jacks 02 to 08. For ordinary phones only connect two wires to the telephone sockets, red to pin 5, and green to pin 2. These must be connected to a master line jack unit (2/2A). DO NOT connect wires to pins 3 and 4.
To add an ordinary extension, in parallel to the Proprietary phone, you simply run a lead from pins 2 and 5 of the secondary socket to pins 2 and 5 of the master socket where the ordinary extension will be connected.
Exchange line wiring
In addition to the eight extensions cords already mentioned, the system is supplied with three plug-ended extension cords that plug directly into three sockets (numbered CO1 to CO3) located on the top of the system. The loose end of the cord (no plug) must be terminated to the exchange lines. If your exchange lines are terminated on a wall socket they should be wired to pins 2 and 5.

This feature provides a quick way of setting up parameters that must be established to start the system with a KX-TA624.
Holiday setting capability
The system can be programmed to handle calls differently, (e.g. auto-attendant vs. voice mail) on official holidays.
Automatic fax transfer
When you receive a fax call the system will automatically send the call to the designated fax extension, eliminating the need for a dedicated line for your fax.
The systems can support up to three different languages, English and Spanish are the standard; the system administrator can then record up to two other languages*. Callers may choose the language of their preference when they call in.
*Spanish may be re-recorded in another language.
Door Phone/Door Opener
With the addition of the optional KX-TA62460 Door Phone/Opener Adapter Card, one KX-TA624 system can interface with up to four door intercoms and four door contact closures for remote operation of electric door locks. It's an ideal way to add security to your home or small business suite.
for business communications
Dual port usage
The KX-TA624 system is ready for expansion right from the start. You can easily connect a Panasonic proprietary telephone and a single- line device simultaneously to up to 16 extension ports*. This feature increases the cost effectiveness of your system and helps eliminate extra wiring costs.
* subject to configuration
Key and lamp operation
The KX-T7000 series key telephones can provide wide ranging flexibility to the user. Each extension can easily handle, hold and transfer multiple calls and lines. Visual indication of extensions also provides instant status indication as to the availability of other members of staff.
The system has a built in paging facility which enable each key telephone to act as a speaker when not in use. There are a number of paging zones to help locate staff around the office. Voice calls can be made to certain individuals with hands free answerback which is useful for secretaries to page their managers, for example.
As well as being able to answer calls, hold and transfer at any extension, the KX-TA series can provide full switchboard operation. This enables fast and efficient call handling whilst enabling the operator to have visual indication of all lines and extensions. Additional switchboard features include:
16 programmable feature keys
Headset operation with KX-7130E key telephone
Visual status of up to 24 extensions
Announced/un-announced call transfer
Call park for busy periods
To help improve call handling during out of office hours and off peak periods the system can be switched to an alternative ringing pattern.
Least cost routing
The KX-TA624 system can be programmed to take advantage of the most cost effective network carriers.
By attaching a printer or call management system to the KX-TA624 system a detailed report of all incoming and outgoing calls can be kept. This combined with individual and system wide call baring means the KX-TA624 system provides effective call and cost management.
Answering machines, cordless phones, fax machines and modems can also be connected to the KX-TA624 system.
One option, many benefits
This facility allows external callers to dial directly to the extension they require, after following the guidance message issued by the system. This helps to ease the load of a busy operator, and connects calls quickly and easily to the callers chosen extension.
Fax detect (optional)
Routes incoming fax messages automatically to extensions with a fax machine.
OGM card (optional)
A simplified 'auto attendant' operation helps handle callers and direct them to key departments: sales, service, accounts etc.
A full range of handsets and DSS consoles is available in both white and black
With the LCD option, displaying the caller's number on the digital keyphone*, you'll know who's calling before you pick up the phone. In a smaller organisation, answering with a personal 'Hello, Mr Smith' has real benefits for business.
You'll also know who's called even when you're not there to answer. The numbers of up to 20 unanswered calls per extension can be logged, so you can return the calls when you get back. The three displays in this brochure show CLI** and Call Logging in action.
You can't always be in your office, but you can always be in touch with it. The voice processing system of the new KX-TA624 allows you to record, send and retrieve messages 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from anywhere in the world.
So urgent messages can be handled urgently- instead of being left until your return - and your telephone system traffic and internal communications become more efficiently managed. You can find out more about voice processing further in the brochure.
Advanced for your advantage
The advanced features of the new KX-TA624 are designed to help your business run better. With a phone system that's more efficient, more effective and more productive, you can concentrate on the business, and leave the communications to your new Panasonic telephone system.

Extensions are able to access a common list of up to 100 System Speed Dial numbers
