BT PAYHONE 200 Mk 2
Payphone 200 MkII
The robust wall-mounted Payphone 200 MkII offers you all the benefits of a payphone and all the convenience of a normal phone. It is ideal for semi-supervised sites, such as pubs and clubs.
You can use its special key to transform the Payphone 200 MkII into a normal phone, so you can use it without having to put money in the coin slot.
It has a cash box capacity of up to £80, takes l0p, 20p and 50p coins and is available in beige with a contrasting handset or all yellow for high visibility.
No-one need be cut off
The visual display ensures your customers need never be cut off in mid-sentence as it allows them to see how much credit they’ve got left in cash during a call.
Carry on talking without a break
Your customers can carry on talking without a break whenever they have to put more money in the Payphone 200 MkII. Coins placed in the coin slot just drop into the payphone without the need for any pressure to be applied.
Keeping accurate records
Keeping accurate records is easy with the Payphone 200 MkII. It has an in-built coin trip meter which will show you the accumulated cash total (in pounds and pence) that your customers have put in the cash box since it was first installed.
Going straight onto another call
If your customers have got any credit left after finishing one call, they can use it on another call by pressing the Follow On Call button.
One call or as many as they like
Your customers can feed up to 4 coins into the Payphone 200 MkII in advance, which makes it easier for them when they’re making national or international calls or, for that matter, several local calls on the trot.
Unused coins are returned
Any wholly unused coins are automatically returned to the customer immediately the handset is replaced. The Payphone 200 MkII cashes the minimum value of coins necessary to pay for a call or calls, in the order that they’ve been inserted.
Watching over your payphone
It is not easy for people to make reverse charge calls to this payphone at your expense, or for your customers to get connected to another number for free when they shouldn’t be.
The Payphone 200 MkII produces a warning tone which alerts the operator to the fact that the person answering or speaking to them is using a payphone.
However, international reverse charge calls to your payphone cannot always be prevented in this way.
The only sure way to prevent any reverse charge calls being made to your payphone is to bar incoming calls altogether, which we can arrange for you for a small charge if you ask.
Calling the world
Your customers can make local, national, international and 999 calls using this payphone. They can also speak to the operator on 100 and have access to BT’s Chargecard service.
Help for the hard of hearing
An inductive coupler is fitted in the earpiece. It is designed solely to improve the clarity of incoming speech and reduce background noise for people wearing post aural hearing aids (which should be set to the T position). It does not affect the payphone in any other way.
Weight 8.8 kg (19.4 lb).
Dimensions 265 mm (10.3 in.) wide by 220mm (8.6 in.) deep by 340mm (13.3 in.) high.
Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) 1.
This payphone receives meter pulsing signals from the exchange, which means that the BT engineer will have to make a connection to the main earthing terminal on your premises. This is usually located next to the main fuse box. If you do not have a main earthing terminal, your local electricity board will install one for you (it must be in place before the BT engineer visits).
