No. 5000 TYPE

This small G.E.C. unit has an ultimate capacity for 15 lines, but can be originally equipped for as few as 5 extensions. It is arranged for fixing on a shelf or table.  The whole switchboard mechanism is mounted on a steel framework which is fixed to a substantial hard wood base.  It is suitably protected against dust or damage by a cover of pressed steel.

The unit is very compact, being only 18.75" high, l3" wide and 8.5" deep, and can consequently be fitted practically anywhere.
