Automatic telephone for one local and one exchange line

DF 220

The two lines can be connected to manual or automatic CB systems. The one line (Ll) may, for instance, be connected to a public telephone exchange and the other (L2) to a private exchange. The red button would then be for the public exchange and the white button for the private exchange.

Connection of the telephone to the one or the other of the lines is made by pressing the corresponding button. Conversations on one line cannot be over heard on the other. If during conversation over the public exchange line (Li) information is desired from a local source, the white button is pressed. The telephone is then connected to the local line (L2). The red button remains pressed and the public exchange line (LI) is held. ‘When the conversation with the local line is finished, by pressing again the red button, which has an extra bottom position, the white button is released, the telephone is disconnected from the local line and reconnected to the public exchange line. This telephone may be used as a wall set by means of a bracket RK 5010.
