The BA-5 is a two line, "Hook Flash" activated, Promotion On Hold adapter that can be added to telephones that have either 1 or 2 lines. Two BA-5 units can be used together to provide coverage for 3 and 4 line telephones.

The BA-5 can be installed on any telephone in the office and is accessible from all telephones, even cordless phones. This is a true plug and play unit. The end user can easily install the unit.
