I have two questions how would you connect a nortel ata to a nortel 6x16? Then the 2nd question is would you be able to use a rotary dial phone within the ata?
Thank you

It has been a LOOONG time since I did all that - Old 6x16, & Rotary phone
But an ATA connects to a digital port just like a phone does.
Make sure it has 2 I/C.

What I am not 100% sure about, is if the New ATA2 units will work on the old system.
If it does not, you may need the OLD ATA units that are about 6-8 inches long and 4 inches wide.

I would also think that a rotary phone should just work on it.

AND I am sure that other techs will chime in if my memory is not that great.

I never made a market in 616's, but it looks like you can. The * and # are replaced with 1 and 3 in the instruction set.

P.S. I remember boardhost.com from a million years ago. I think we hosted a Pana group from them.

OR maybe it is the other way around.
The OLD ATA does not work on the NEW system, but mayber the ATA2 New units will work on the old ?????????

Found it. ATA

Let's see if Dean's lesson worked. The DR1 &2 doesn't work with ATA. It does with ATA2

I appreciate you guys and the help you all give,the model number of my pbx is NT5B01, and I should have thrown in the fact that I have VoIP (google voice) only and was also going to ask if my nortel pbx would have been able to convert the pulse dialing the same as a panasonic did but I was told that only the panasonic would do that,but I still might buy the ATA anyway.

Need the Software info not the PBX info (actually called a KSU - Key Service Unit) .
Software is a cartridge in the top on the unit.


NTlayoff was partially correct the first time and that is:
- ATA2 does not work with DR1 Software
- Features available are dependant on the software version of the KSU

FYI - The NT5B01 is a NON-DS Cabinet meaning it does not support Disconnect Supervision which is required for Voice Mail systems and maybe Fax machines so that the 6X16 can release the call when the caller hangs up.
If you ever upgrade the software to DR5 then make sure it is NON-DS software version.
All NON-DS has black text and all DS has Turquoise/Teal text on the cabinets and software cartridges.

If you are needing to hook up a Voip line (SIP) then you need a converter for the trunk port such as a Mediatrix 4102 or alike.

6X16 Trunk ports dial Rotary by default and must be changed to Tone in Line programming.

Thank you sir for your response, I will get the software info very soon and will then post it.

I visited the OP's website link. He already has an ATA for dial tone. This is for rotary dial phones as extensions. Geeze, get a KXT-308 and let it give you 8 rotary dial to TT converters.

I remember what I hated about Nortel and their part numbers. Our host lists the 5b01 as a 616 DR5 with DS. USEDPH

However, thanks for the TEAL info. I still have a handful of T phones to unload for fun and profit.
