Basic Norstar Programming

How many CAP/KIM modules are supported on Norstar MICS by aragon
Posted: 30 May 08

Minimum software version needed to support a T7316E is MICS/CICS version 6.0

"CAP/KIM assign"
This setting designates a telephone as an enhanced central
answering position (eCAP). A maximum of five designated
eCAPs can be installed in a Modular ICS system. The system
can support more CAP configurations that are not designated
in programming as eCAPs. Refer to the Tips below for
information about the difference between OKIMs and eKIMs.
• Key indicator modules (KIMs).
KIMs that are attached to 7316E digital phones that have been designated as eCAPs are called eKIMs.
A 7316E+KIM which is not assigned with the DN of the
telephone under CAP/KIM assgn, is called an ordinary
KIM (OKIM). OKims support memory button programming, only.
• Legacy hardware: Existing systems may have 7324 digital
phones attached to CAP modules.
The eCAP can be used to:
• monitor the busy/not busy and Do Not Disturb status of
system telephones
• answer external calls on up to 112 lines on a 7316E+eKIM
and extend calls to other system telephones
• send up to 30 messages to other system telephones
• provide extra memory buttons for the telephones
• eKIMs can also support multiple appearances of a target
lines and Hunt group designators.

CAP line programming: A central answering
position (CAP) with eKIMs, can provide extra line buttons if
more than 10 (7316E digital phone) lines are assigned to the
telephone attached to the modules. The extra lines
automatically overflow onto the buttons on the module, as they are programmed. Note that new line assignments may
overwrite existing programming on the eKIM.
Note: The eKIM must be set up under System prgrmng, CAP/
KIM assgn to accommodate line buttons. If the modules are
not set up in system programming to be CAPs, the lines will
remain assigned to the 7316E, but will not show up on a button on that telephone.

Each T7316E can support up to 9 OKIM's or 4 EKIM's

A SAPs (24 VDC power supply) is not required for 7316E digital phones with four or fewer KIMs. If the KIMs are designated as eKIMS, you can only attach a maximum of four modules to a 7316E. Add a SAPS if more than four OKIMs are added to the 7316E.

Do not add more than 50 DN's to a system with the same line appearance. The KSU will become unstable.
