The TransTel DK8 is a unique new concept next generation digital keyphone with a fully Touch driven – no moving parts – interface.

This new design phone has a very slim profile body resulting in a contemporary look and feel. Incorporating a removable stand the phone can be mounted in two positions on the desk – approx 60 or 45 degrees slope – or wall mounted without the need for any special kit. It has DSS keys with bi-colour LED – 22 of them – as expected for TransTel keyphone – giving access to the full range of functions inherent in TransTel systems according to their programming. The 21 model has a 4 line LCD display, in an attractive and easy to read reverse backlit blue colour, providing more than adequate call information.

Along with the normal controls for volumes etc, the phone has Full Duplex Handsfree mode, and provides two options (ports) for headset connection. These are one for a standard wired headset, and one for Electronic Hookswitch (EHS) – in the industry standard DHSG format for seamless integration with compatible wireless headsets without the need for a lifter fitted to the phone. As with other

TransTel DK phones the DK8 is connected to the main equipment via single pair wiring so deployment over existing wiring is painless.
