TELEPHONE No. N1010 & N1010A

Automatic Table Telephone

n1010a.jpg (11535 bytes)The casework, micro-telephone and terminal block are of moulded, black Bakelite which is easy to keep clean and does not become shabby through long usage.

The mounting of the dial harmonises with the instrument. The dial is placed at such an angle that the figures are not obscured by the finger plate.

The micro-telephone is fitted with a detachable receiver and an "inset" transmitter.

The ringer, 1000 ohms, is fitted on the inside of the base which is cut away to permit of greater audibility, also a condenser 2uF, induction coil and switch are the other interior fitments.

All terminals are enclosed.

This is an N1010 dated 1935











The N1010 below is different to the normal N1010
Ericsson clones of the Gecophone made during WW2 sometimes used a base plate which was populated with a GEC early style ringer and an upright terminal board.  The base plate, was however, shaped like an Ericsson base plate (with the sides cut in).  These  components may have an Ericsson 'N' part number painted on them but they were almost certainly made in Coventry by GEC.  They also have an Ericsson diagram N19995 pasted to the capacitor, which was released in 1935.

The ringer mechanism, bell mounting and Paxolin terminal block look like GEC
The diagram is N19995


Identical to a GEC bas plate except that is has the Ericsson style cut outs on the edges
