GENERATOR. For type, number of magnets, and line resistance through which they ring, see table below.

RINGER. For resistance see table below.

The base, sides, and top-plate of these telephones are made of black enamelled steel.

The terminals are all enclosed.

If required, and without extra cost, we supply these types with case enamelled to match walnut, and at an extra cost, we can supply them with two generator handles.

Overall dimensions 11.9 x 9.5 x 5.9 inches.

Telephone AC 540 is provided with a press button for cutting out the ringer coils and short circuiting the induction coil, the button to be pressed down while ringing.

If specially required, we can supply this telephone without the press button, but with the connections so arranged that the ringer is cut out when the generator is operated, and in this case, no press button is provided.
