APPROVAL No. S/3008/G/45239
The BT Consort 1 + 4 is a single line multi-feature telephone system (i.e. 1 exchange line plus up to 4 units) comprising 1 main and up to 3 extension units into which standard telephones are plugged to provide a plan 105/107 replacement with hold, enquiry, transfer, bell off, buzz, intercom and paging facilities.
Made by Rathdown Industries Limited.
Approved for plug in connection to the PSTN or extension of a PBX. A locking bar MUST be fitted to the Line Jack Units into which the Consort system cords (6 wire) are plugged. This requirement applies to both PSTN and PBX connection. Consort is approved for DIY wiring and is exempt from the pre-connection inspection and approved maintainer requirements.
Maximum Main to Extension Unit cabling (using cable 2503F) is limited to 80ohms maximum, star or serial wired (80ohms approximates to 275 cable metres). Any telephone approved to BS6317 may be connected to the main or extension unit.
The main unit provides an earth recall signal of 300 + 10 m secs. A modified main unit with an early recall signal of 1.2 seconds is available for systems (e.g. PABX 4) requiring a longer recall signal.
Ensure that the line voltage setting switches on the main unit are in the correct position for DEL/PABX working - 50 volt (position A) or PABX working (older Mitel systems and PMBX 1) - 25 volt (position B).
The main unit can be identified as it is the only unit to have a mains adapter and night service button.
Each extension unit must have it's own unique address and this is set on a bank of switches on the rear of each extension unit. The address of the main unit is always 4 and does not need to be set.
All 6 wires must be connected at every socket within the extension cabling. One of the LJU's must be a master.
