Startalk 180 wiring connection

Hi all.

I have a Startalk 180 and a Norstar Compact.

The Norstar Compact is currently in Service with 4 lines and 8 extensions.

I wish to add the Startalk 180 (fitted with the 4 channel expansion module).

The Nortel Extensions are connected to a Distribtion box, and as such all extensions are "kroned" into the krone block with in the distribution box.

The Startalk 180 has come with RJ45/RJ11 (the smaller of the 2, i can never remember which is which sorry) terminated cables to connect it to the Norstar.

It seems i need to Cut one end of the RJ45/11 cables off and Krone them into

2 free extension ports on the krone block within the Distribution box.

Can anyone advise which pair of wires i should use? as the Startalk cables have 4 wires. I assume only 2 are used as per normal extension phone like a m7310.

should i be looking at wiring 2 RJ45/11 sockets into the distribution box instead of "Krone" ing directly in?, again i should be grateful for the pinout required if possible.

thanks in anticipation folks.

use the red green pair or the center 2 pins on the RJ 11 that you plug into the startalk and punch them down to a valid station port on the 66 block. keep in mind the CICS may have restricted software and only allow 8 digital station ports. also there may be a compatibility issue. if you can give me the SW version of the ST and the CICS I can tell you if they will play nice.

------------------------------------- Hi there,

Wondering if you can help,

i have a meridian compact system, i have 3 lines and at the moment 14 extensions, i bought a star talk 180 from ebay, and am currently trying to figure out if i can use it.

there is a serial port o my star talk, does this need to be connected to the ccu what is it for?? also i take it that the rj45 ports on the side marked 2 & 4 are the number of extensions going into the star talk, is this true, is it as simple as connecting the 2 port socket to 2 empty extensions on my ccu?

Your help would be greatly appreciated

The serial port is used for diagnostics and reports. No need to connect anything to it. Only one digital station is used per port. Each station is 2 channels (B1 & B2) which is why the jacks are labeled 2 and 4.
