N1746A2 Master Station Telephone shown
The loudspeaker telephone is designed for the convenience of busy executives who need complete freedom of movement in order to consult references or make notes during telephone conversations.
The instrument incorporates a microphone and loudspeaker which will function satisfactorily in any managerial office of average size, and the only action necessary to initiate or answer a call is the operation of the lever key associated with the particular line concerned ; thus communication can be established in the minimum of time.
If privacy is desired, the micro-telephone can be used, in which case the loudspeaker is automatically cut out.
An incoming call causes the name or number of the caller to be illumined in the designation strip above the keys and also operates a buzzer in the instrument. This audible signal can be changed to a "click" by pressing a switch fitted below the handset.
The grained, polished casework is easy to keep clean and is designed on the simple lines usually preferred for modern offices. A flexible cord from the instrument is wired to a terminal box to which the line wires are connected.
Two types of instrument are available as listed. They are identical except that a plinth is included with N1746B to accommodate the ten extra lines.
The associated side station telephones are the N1732/33
intercom type and N1595A call and reply type, either or both of
which may be used in one installation. Not more than thirteen side stations may be of the
intercom type, although in special cases when only one master station is required, the
number can be increased to fourteen. Call and reply sets may be connected to one, or both,
