Type AD 125
Intermediate Wall Telephone for 2-3 Earth Circuit
FRAMEWORK, polished walnut, constructed to hold two cells, RK 360 or RK 400 (Old No. 971 or 586).
MICRO-TELEPHONE. RE 4050 (Old No. 530), with cord RS 6500 (Old No. 2061), suspended on a hook-switch.
GENERATOR. RH 4120, 4-magnet, which rings satisfactorily through a line resistance of 15,000 ohms.
RINGER. 150 ohms resistance.
PRESS-BUTTON. For short circuiting the coils.
This telephone is specially intended for use with two earth circuit extension lines, and is provided with a clip for papers.
The press button should be held down while ringing.
The switch should be normally in the right or left hand position, and a signal given by one or other of the two extension stations will reach the intermediate station in either case.
The two extension lines can communicate with each other independently of the position of the switch, and without being overheard, and the intermediate station can communicate with either extension by moving the switch to the right or to the left respectively.
A third extension line can be connected to the intermediate station, and it can be called and communicated with when the switch is in the central position, and at the same time, extensions Nos. 1 and 2 can communicate with each other.
If it is necessary for the third extension line to call the intermediate station, an extension bell RA 15 (Old No. 426) must be connected across the terminals j and L 3, and should it be desirable to connect the third line to extensions 1 and 2, a switch AF 300 (Old No. 460) must be used. In the latter case, the extension bell RA 15 would not be required.
If the extension line No. 3 is in communication with extensions either 1 or 2, the intermediate station can at the same time communicate with the other extension line.
