TELEPHONE No. 4
telephone, with no dial aperture, for CBS and Magneto exchanges.
Standard CBS No. 1 table telephone if used with Bellset No. 5.
This was the standard telephone instrument arranged for standing upon a table. Since this telephone is simply a transmitter, a receiver, and a gravity switch, the instrument is not complete, and a separate hand generator is provided, usually fixed to the desk or table in close proximity to the table telephone; the induction coil and magneto bell, with the condenser (should one be required), are fitted in a case and are known as a Bell Set.
The bell set for use with the telephone is Bell Set No. 5, if the condenser is not necessary, and Bell Set No. 15 if a condenser is required. The bell set need not be fitted close to the telephone so long as it is within audible distance of it. The primary battery is placed in a battery box and fitted close to the bell set to which it is connected.
