Delay Dump ($%!) Button


This article covers the use of the DELAY ($%!) dump button on the VSet phones and controllers and how to set it up.


The VSet phone sets and controllers (even the Legacy Desktop Director and Switch Console) have a button called DELAY (#%!). In all cases, this button controls a GPIO output on it's corresponding phone system. This article will tell you how to set it up.

Hx6 / iQ6

The VSet's Dump button is hard-configured to momentarily activate pin 1 of the first GPIO port.

Legacy Systems

The Desktop Director and Switch Console Delay Dump buttons work similarly to the Hx6, where the delay dump button activates a GPIO output pin. Please reference the operation manual for the product you have.
