TELEPHONE SR 1009


THQ CIRCULAR
S1 B8102
Feb 1980


INTRODUCTION
This Circular announces the addition of the EIGER telephone to the Special Range and describes the telephone and procedures associated with it.

DESCRIPTION
The Eiger telephone is supplied to BT by Gfeller Telecommunications. It is a one piece self contained press button instrument offering REPEAT LAST DIALLED facility and incorporates a switch hook in the base. The Eiger is available in both Type A and Type C. Type A colours are Red, Stone and two tone Brown and Type C is Dark Grey. The case has a textured finish. The calling device is an internal buzzer with volume control. When operating as the sole instrument on an installation the volume of the buzzer may be considered inadequate and one separate bell may be offered free of charge on initial provision of the telephone. All telephones axe supplied complete with a three metre cord terminated on a Plug 505; Type A instruments are fitted with an Ivory cord and plug and Type C with Black cord and plug. Alternative cords cannot be provided.

The keypad has twelve buttons. On the Red and Dark Grey models the buttons are white marked in black whilst the buttons on the Stone and two tone Brown models are black and marked in light gold colour. The eleventh button on Type A is marked S for Silent and cuts off the microphone whilst on the Type C version this button is marked R for Recall. The twelfth button on both types is marked M for Memory and is used to provide

REPEAT LAST NUMBER DIALLED (up to 20 digits)
On Type A versions the operation of button M by pressing and releasing in the normal way will cause the integral memory to pulse out the last number dialled. To cancel operation of the M button the telephone should be replaced on its base or the switch hook depressed.
On Type C versions, because the telephone is not designed to recognise line conditions, the M button should be depressed until the second dial tone is heard and then released. The memory will then pulse out the last number dialled in the normal way. 

DIMENSIONS
Height 226 mm, Width 72 mm, Depth 112.5 mm, Weight 350g.

FIELD OF USE
The Eiger is available in both Type A and Type C versions.
Type A can be used on exclusive exchange lines; on main stations and extensions plans 1A and 4 including Plan 4 off plan 1A and PBX extensions without Recall facility. It cannot be used on shared exchange lines. Type C can be used on direct PBX extensions with Recall or the last station of a Plan 1A off a PBX extension with Recall.

Arrangements have been made for supply of telephones for publicity/ promotional purposes.
