Can anyone identify what this is and what its for?

Hi all

A few years ago I bought a bunch of Nortel networking and telephony equipment from a company that buys stuff from businesses that go out of business. I found this little device in the bottom of a carboard box that had a load of i2004 IP phones in, but I have no idea what it is or what it does. Does anyone recognise it and could possibly point me to a manual? I've tried Googling the part numbers but that comes up with nothing.


RE: Can anyone identify what this is and what its for?

I will take a guess and that it's a TTY terminal adapter with a modem to connect to the PBX.

It appears that if the power was plugged in then the RJ mod ends cannot reach the com ports?
And presume 25 pin serial connector?.
Maybe power up, plug in a phone line and call it to see if it answers.

I would say not worth keeping these days.
