Ringer
Statesman Telephones have a Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) of 1.  Telephone instruments (BT and non BT supplied) are now required to be labelled with their REN so that users do not exceed the permitted maximum number of ringers in circuit.

A telephone with REN of 1 has a ringer performance comparable to that of a standard instrument (i.e. Telephone No. 8746G), the total REN value of all ringers connected at any time at an installation must not exceed 4.

The REN does not guarantee compatibility between ringers of different technologies on the same installation.

There is a known problem with the Statesman ringer not operating.  This is generally due to the connectors on the rear of the ringer.

To check and rectify this issue:-

  1. Remove the base by removing the central screw and prising the base away from the front edge.
  2. Locate the ringer mechanism which is the black, plastic round item in the base moulding.
  3. There are two metal strips protruding from the plastic housing.  They should extend the same distance as each other.
  4. Pull the two strips away from the plastic housing until they stop.
  5. Bend the two metal strips upwards so they are at about 45 degrees to the plastic housing.
  6. Ensure the strips cannot move back into the plastic housing by bending the lugs at the base of the strip.
  7. Reassemble the base.

Alternate Recall (AR)
To configure a Statesman No. 9101AR for timed break recall proceed as follows. open the telephone by removing the screw in the base and pulling the case halves apart. Shift plug 'PLD' on the PCB from the 1 - 2 to the 2 - 3 position.  To return to Earth Loop recall return plug 'PLD' to the 1 - 2 position (see diagram further down this page).

POWER REQUIREMENTS
Telephone 9040R is 50 Volt line powered and requires no external power supply.  The last number redial facility constantly draws approximately 23ma from line to maintain the memory.  If the instrument is disconnected from line for more than a few minutes the memory will be erased.

PBX APPROVAL
All Statesman Telephones except for 9040 with manufacturers code 'EET' an classified as '700 type' impedance for PBX extension approval purposes.  The 9040 with manufacturers code 'EET' is classified as complex impedance and must not be used as an extension to e.g. IBM PABX.

INDUCTIVE COUPLER
The Receiver Inset 3/3T may be used in all types of Statesman Telephones covered by this CSI with the exception of 9101 with manufacturers code 'EET', 9040, 9l10 and 9111.  This type of receiver inset provides inductive coupling to certain types of 'behind the ear' hearing aid.

RFI
Statesman 9005, 9040 (with manufacturers code 'GEN' made since September 1985) and 9101AR have good immunity to Radio Frequency Interference (RFI), other models have poor immunity and may be affected by nearby radio transmitters.

EXCHANGE COMPATIBILITY
Not all modern telephone exchanges will accept loop disconnect dialling (LD).  This is evidenced by pressing a button which will break the dial tone (prove by trying the phone on a BT line).  The phone will still ring and can used to answer incoming calls.
