In comparison with earlier types of magneto telephones they are small and tight, this being made possible by the use of a small but powerful generator embodying a magnet made of magnetic alloy, aluminium nickel-cobalt known as “Alnico”.
These telephones can be modified for selective ringing by the addition of a icy; providing single-generator
earth ringing facility as well as normal generator ringing; as used by Electricity Supply Authorities, etc., for substation communications. Further particulars supplied on request.
