HOUSE EXCHANGE SYSTEM No. 4
Facilities

1 GENERAL
This Instruction describes the facilities provided in a House Exchange System No. 4 (HES No. 4) which has been given the sales name Keymaster 2 + 10. This system provides inter-communication between stations with direct access from these stations to exchange lines.

2 DEFINITIONS
(a) Multiple Station
A multiple station is one equipped with a Telephone, Intercom No. 4/.... which is an instrument based on the 700 type telephone design. Multiple stations are linked by a multiple cable and are normally confined to one building but the cable may be extended to stations in nearby buildings, if signalling limits are not exceeded.

(b) Non-Multiple Extension
This is an extension station connected to the multiple by a two-wire line and a relay-unit. The extension is equipped with a Telephone No. 710 (F or CB).

(c) Main Station
This is the multiple station where incoming calls always give an audible signal and which assists non-multiple extensions with calls to other stations. A small key unit is required to be sited with the Telephone Intercom No. 4/1 at this station when non-multiple extensions are provided. The main station also controls some of the additional facilities which may be added to the system. One other multiple station may be designated 2nd choice main station if required.

3 CAPACITY OF INSTALLATION
A HES No. 4 comprises two exchange lines and up to ten stations; exceptionally, one additional multiple station can be provided. A total of four non-multiple extensions or private circuits may be fitted in lieu of four multiple stations. The system also includes a Power-Unit No. 52A and an exchange line relay-unit, together with a relay-unit for each non-multiple extension or private circuit that has been provided; these units are all wall mounted.

4 EXTENSION PLAN ARRANGEMENTS
Extension Plans 1, 1A and 4 internal only, may be provided at a non-multiple extension, if the appropriate limits given in C3010 are not exceeded at the most remote instrument of the extension plan.

Extension telephones cannot be associated with multiple stations, and it is not possible to work two multiple station telephones in parallel.

5 CONNECTION TO PUBLIC EXCHANGE
The HES No. 4 works on CB principles but may be connected to any type of public exchange. In CBS and LB areas, an auxiliary unit must be fitted in the exchange lines to provide the necessary CB conditions.

The HES No. 4 is not suitable for shared service.

6 LAMP SIGNALS
Telephones, Intercom, No. 4/.... are equipped with four lamps. The lamp adjacent to each exchange line press-button glows at all stations when that exchange line is in use. The appropriate lamp at the right-hand end of the station identification label glows only at the station which is engaging the line.

7 EXCHANGE CALLS
(a) Incoming to System
Incoming exchange calls are signalled visually at all multiple stations, except those prohibited exchange line service, by lamps which are adjacent to the press-buttons of the exchange lines. At all stations, the lamp associated with the line on which the call is being received flashes in sympathy with the ringing, then glows steadily when the call is answered.

All Telephones, Intercom, No. 4/.... are fitted with standard magneto bells and up to five bells in series may be rung simultaneously from the public exchange except where the ringing supply is from a low-power source, e.g. a vibrator, when only one or two bells may be rung; see also para 13.

For incoming exchange call ringing at non-multiple extensions see para 9.

(b) Incoming to Private Circuit
In special instances incoming exchange calls may be extended to private circuits (see (b) and para 11).

(c) Outgoing from Multiple Stations
Direct connection to the public exchange from any multiple station with full facilities is obtained by pressing the press-button of the selected exchange line. The lamp adjacent to the press-button glows at all stations to indicate that the line is engaged and the appropriate lamp at the right-hand end of the station identification label glows at the engaging station. Exchange calls are normally secret (see (k)).

(d) Outgoing from Non-Multiple Extension
Direct connection to the exchange from any non-multiple extension with full facilities is obtained by pressing the EXCH button in the Telephone No. 710. Selection of the line to be used is determined automatically by the relay-unit which connects the extension to the multiple cable.

(e) Exchange Service Restriction or Prohibition
Access to the exchange lines may be restricted at selected multiple stations and non-multiple extensions, so that calls may be originated or received under the control of the main station only. Exchange service may be prohibited to selected multiple stations and non- multiple extensions.

(f) Main Station Control
Incoming exchange calls intended for non-multiple extensions or private circuits can only be transferred to these extensions via the main station. The main station also controls the transfer of an exchange call from a non-multiple extension to another non-multiple extension, multiple station, or private circuit. It is not possible for a private circuit to transfer an exchange call. The main station also controls exchange service to stations with restricted facilities.

(g) Transfer Facility
An incoming or outgoing exchange call may be transferred from one multiple to another, or from a non-multiple extension via the main station to another non-multiple extension or multiple station without releasing the exchange connection.

On installations with two exchange lines, a multiple station may hold a call on one exchange line while transferring a call incoming on the other line. The main station must assist in the transfer of exchange calls to or from non-multiple extensions or multiple stations with restricted facilities. During the transfer of an exchange call from one multiple station to another, the change of the exchange line lamp from flashing to a steady glow indicates that the receiving station is ready to accept the call. Pressing the exchange line release R button at the transferring station completes the transfer of the call, and this may be visually confirmed by the station engaging lamp, which dims at the transferring station and glows at the receiving station when transfer has occurred.

(h) Hold Facility
Any multiple station may hold an exchange call while making an intercom call to another station on the system. In the exchange line hold condition, the subscriber on the exchange line cannot hear the conversation between the holding station and the called station. On installations with two exchange lines, any multiple station with full facilities may hold one exchange line while making a call on the other exchange line. During the holding of an exchange line its line engaged lamp, adjacent to the exchange line press-button, will flash at all stations two or three times per second.

(j) Exchange Line Engaged
At multiple stations the lamps adjacent to the exchange line press-buttons provide a visual indication when the line is engaged. The exchange line press-button must not be operated when its associated lamp is glowing; to do so may cut off an established call. The lamps adjacent to the conference press-button, i.e. at the right-hand end of the station identification label, provide a visual indication as to when a station is engaging the exchange line, the lamp glowing only at the engaging station.

(k) Secrecy and Monitoring
Exchange calls are normally secret but a monitoring facility may be given to the main or other selected multiple station. This facility is restricted to one station at any installation and is not for continuous use as it degrades transmission.

8 LOCAL INTERCOMMUNICATION CALLS
(a) Multiple Stations
There is direct calling between all multiple stations on the system.

Independent calls between stations in pairs, up to the capacity of the system may proceed simultaneously without mutual interference, but they are not secret and a station may break in by calling one of the engaged stations.

(b) Calling a Station Engaged on an Exchange Call
At a calling multiple station a buzzer signal is normally given if the called multiple station is engaged on, or holding, an exchange line (see (c)).

If the called station is a non-multiple extension the buzzer signal is given only when the exchange line is engaged speaking, not during hold conditions.

Private circuits cannot hold or transfer exchange calls, and a buzzer signal will always be received when a private circuit is engaged on an exchange line call.

(c) To Allow a Multiple Station to Call a Multiple Station Engaged on an Exchange Call
The facility may be given whereby a multiple station may be called while it is engaged on an exchange call. The called station then answers the intercom call by pressing its own station calling press-button. This facility cannot be provided that installations consisting of eleven stations as a multiple station's own calling press-button is no longer available to answer the calling station. Stations with the facility of being called while engaged on an exchange line do not return an engaged signal to calling stations.

(d) Multiple Station Calling Non-Multiple Extension or Private Circuit
There is direct calling from all multiple stations to any non-multiple extension or private circuit. Calls at the non-multiple extension are answered by operating the EXTN press-button.

(e) Non-Multiple Extension Calling Multiple Station
A non-multiple extension wishing to call a multiple station first calls the main station by pressing the EXTN button fitted in the Telephone No. 710. The main station then asks the required multiple station to call the non-multiple extension.

(f) Non-Multiple Extension Calling Non-Multiple Extension or Private Circuit
A non-multiple extension wishing to call another non-multiple extension or private circuit first calls the main station by pressing the EXTN press-button fitted in the Telephone No. 710. The main station then calls the required extension or private circuit and completes the connection via a connect circuit at the main station. The call must be released by restoration of the connect keys on receipt of a clear signal from each of the extensions or circuits.

(g) Private Circuit Calling Multiple Station
The private circuit calls the main station which then asks the required multiple station to call the private circuit, i.e. the call is reverted.

(h) Private Circuit Calling Non-Multiple Extension or Private Circuit
The private circuit first calls the main station and the procedure is then the same as described in (f).

(j) Conference Calls
Any multiple station may call all, or any number of other multiple stations, non-multiple extensions and private circuits, and then speak to them simultaneously. This facility is not available on incoming or outgoing exchange calls.

Any non-multiple extension or private circuit, with the assistance of the main station may call all, or any number of other multiple stations, non-multiple extensions and private circuits, and then speak to them simultaneously.

9 NIGHT SERVICE TO NON-MULTIPLE EXTENSIONS
An individual or number of non-multiple extensions may be given night service by means of a key at the main station. The incoming exchange call is then extended to ring the bell at a non- multiple extension. It can be arranged that one selected line only, or both lines are signalled at a particular non-multiple extension.

Exchange service continues to be available at all stations and intercom calls are not affected by night service conditions.

10 NIGHT SERVICE TO PRIVATE CIRCUITS
When the facility is allowed, a private circuit may be given night service for incoming calls only by switching at the main stations. The incoming exchange line ringing is then extended over the private circuit. Exchange service is not affected at multiple stations and non- multiple extensions when a private circuit is on night service. Intercom calls between multiple stations and non-multiple extensions are not affected, but a private circuit on night service cannot be included.

11 ASSOCIATION WITH A PBX
A HES No. 4 installation may be associated with a PBX in several ways.

(a) An extension from a PBX may be connected as an exchange line at the HES No. 4. All facilities available to PBX extensions including operator recall, are also available to HES No. 4 stations. Mixed connections i.e. one exchange line and one PBX extension, are not permitted on installations with non-multiple extensions, due to line identification difficulties on outgoing calls from these extensions.

(b) Subject to satisfactory transmission, a HES No. 4 non-multiple extension may be terminated as an exchange line or private circuit on the distant switchboard. Exchange calls can be extended only from the HES No. 4.

(c) A Relay-Unit Q524 fitted in place of a multiple station and terminated at the PBX as an extension will usually provide all normal inter-switchboard facilities between a HES No. 4 and a PBX.

(d) An HES No. 4 installation may be connected to another HES by private circuit, using a Relay-Unit Q524 fitted in place of a multiple station. The extension of exchange calls over a connecting circuit is not normally allowed.

13 EXTENSION BELLS AND BUZZERS
Extension magneto bells may be provided in lieu, or in addition to, the instrument bell at multiple stations. The total number of bells. to be rung simultaneously from the public exchange must not exceed five, except where the ringing supply is from a low-power source when only one or two bells may be rung. In special circumstances alternative ringing arrangements may be used; these sometimes include the use of a local ringing converter.

One additional magneto bell may be provided at a non-multiple station for intercom signalling purposes.

Loud sounding bells or buzzers may also be provided (see C3036).

14 TELEPHONES WITH HEARING-AID HANDSET
The Handset No. 4 should be used to provide hearing-aid facilities when required at multiple stations and non-multiple extensions.

15 STD FACILITIES
Meters No. 19 may be fitted to the exchange lines (see C3036).

3 TELEPHONE, INTERCOM, NO. 3/1
This telephone is used at a HES No. 3 installation which caters for one exchange line and up to five stations. The telephone is basically a Telephone No. 710 and has a cover (Part 6/DCO/627)which is provided with two lenses; it is fitted with a self-locking BELL OFF button in position A, an EXCH button in position B and two split buttons in each of positions C and D.

The moulded base (a standard item) is fitted with a special gravity switch and has been coded Part 4/DBA/107.

Fitted between the gravity-switch pillars in a sub-assembly known as a Switch Composite, No. 1A, which consists of a spring contact unit wired to a Strip, Connection, No. 155B, the assembly having seven flexible spade-ended leads for connection to the telephone circuit. The contact unit is held in position between the gravity-switch pillars by four screws and the connection strip is held at the rear of the pillars by two locating pins and a spring clip.

The plungers and spring contacts located in positions C and D of the latch- plate assembly form the intercom signalling circuits. The spring contacts and plunger in position B are contacts KX of the exchange line circuit, and these may be released either by replacing the handset or by pressing any one of the four buttons in positions C and D. The spring contacts in position A which are adjacent to position B, are contacts KH and these also operate when contacts KX are operated, but they can only be released by replacing the handset; these form the hold circuit of the exchange line. The remaining spring contacts in position A control the magneto bell cut-off or additional facilities. These springs are operated by a special plunger which is fixed to the latch plate by a bracket. The spring assembly is illustrated in Dgm Q 422 and the button arrangement is shown in Dgm Q 424.

Fixed on the sides of the gravity-switch pillars are two Lamp-fittings, No. 16 (incomplete); viewed from the front of the telephone, the fitting on the left-hand side contains a Lamp No. 26H which provides the red lamp signals for the exchange line, whilst in the fitting on the right-hand side is a Lamp No. 26i which provides the engaged signal for the intercom circuit.

The d.c. buzzer for intercom calling is fitted onto the cord grommet frame and the complete assembly has been coded Buzzer No. 2B-2.

The telephone is fitted with a Cord, Inst, No. 20/03AJ, ..., 72 in which is terminated with the multiple cables onto a Block, Terminal, No. 37.

The telephone is normally fitted with a Handset No. 3. The CB telephone has a Dial, Auto, Dummy, No. 6A, The complete circuit of the telephone is shown in Dgm Q 422 and the wiring of the Switch, Composite, No. 1A only in Dgm Q 423. The instrument cord and cable connections for the telephone are shown in Dgm Q 424.

The telephone is available in black, grey and ivory.

4 TELEPHONE, INTERCOM, NO. 4/1
This telephone is used at a HES No. 4 installation which caters for one or two exchange lines and up to ten stations (exceptionally eleven stations).

The telephone mechanism is mounted on a metal base and is enclosed by a moulded plastic cover (Part 1/DCO/683).

The telephone when issued is fitted with a Handset No. 3 and a Connector No. 1046A. The overall dimensions of the telephone are approximately 11.25 in (285 mm) x 6.75 in (170 mm) x 4.75 in (120 mm) high.

Above the front sloping face of the cover containing the dial aperture, is an almost horizontal face in which is a rectangular aperture for the press-buttons of the key unit. Over the rectangular aperture and surrounding the press-buttons is a separate escutcheon which is sprung into place and clips onto the metal face of the key unit. This escutcheon contains the station identification labels with their clear plastic covers and the lenses for the exchange line lamps. The labels and plastic covers are removed by pressing at the end of the plastic cover with the blunt end of a pencil or similar object; this causes the middle to bow upwards where the cover and label may be gripped and pulled gently upwards. If the label does not rise with the cover it may be eased up by inserting a pin at the middle by the side of the label and levering gently upwards. The escutcheon is removed by inserting a thin blunt edged blade, or finger tip under the chamfered edge at the back and springing off the rear clip, then lifting upwards to release the front spring clip. In front of the handset rest there is provision for four press-buttons which are used to control the bell cut-off facility and any additional facilities that may be provided.

The telephone cover is fixed by two screws in the handset rest and by a screw in the front of the dial mounting.

The press-buttons are in two rows, from left to right there are the two ivory exchange line buttons engraved 1 or 2, two smaller ivory exchange line release buttons engraved R; ten grey press-buttons for signalling and speaking to other stations over the intercom circuits, and the single ivory conference button engraved C.

At the front of the base are two bell gongs, over which Relay-units Q 527 and Q 528 (see para 18 and 19) may be mounted as required. The magneto bell is a Bell No. 59A with long flexible leads and has been coded Bell No. 59A-2.

Behind the bell and across the base is a printed circuit board with the components of a standard 700-type telephone transmission circuit.

The key unit is in two parts; a metal frame carrying spring-sets for the exchange lines and intercom circuits, and a press-button assembly.

The metal frame screwed to the base of the telephone, carried on each side, the spring assembly of an exchange line and a printed board with spring contacts riveted to it, for intercom signalling and speaking.

At the end of the frame near the exchange line spring contacts is a plunger assembly which operates on second and subsequent overpresses of an exchange press-button. The plunger operates a spring-set to provide operator-recall facility to either exchange line circuits. A second spring assembly inside the frame operates when the station press-buttons are overpressed and provides the intercom signalling condition.

At the end of the frame near the conference button are a number of `polytags' carrying resistors associated with lamp circuits etc.

On the top, near each of the four corners of the frame, is a lug which carries a Lamp-fitting No. 19 and a Lamp No. 41E. The press-button mechanism is held in the frame by a countersunk screw at each corner of the top plate.

On the left-hand side of the base, beneath the dial mounting, is a metal bracket which carries a d.c. buzzer (Buzzer No. 2B-3) for intercom calling.

Behind the key unit frame is a 72-way double-sided terminal block. On the top side is the telephone wiring; both soldered and screwed terminations. The instrument cord, a Connector No. 1046A, and any straps that may be required are terminated on the underside and these terminals are exposed by removing a cover plate from the base.

Over the cord entries at the rear of the base is a metal bracket which carries the intercom transmission feed coil and its associated resistors and capacitor.

The telephone is connected to the multiple cabling via a Box, Connection, No. 6A. The circuit and connector connections of the telephone are shown in Dgm Q 540.

The telephone is available in black, grey and ivory.

The weight of the complete instrument is 81 lb.

5 BLOCK, TERMINAL, NO. 37...
The Block, Terminal, No. 37... is used at HES No. 3 installations to terminate the multiple cables and Telephone, Intercom, No.3/1 at multiple stations. It is also used with a Control-unit Q 535 (see par 21) at a HES No. 4 installation.

The Block Terminal, No. 37... consists of a moulded plastic base (Part 1/DBA/99) on which is mounted a terminal block (Part 1/DBL/91), containing 25 double-sided screw terminations the tablet and base being enclosed by a moulded plastic cover (Part 1/DCO/62.5). At one end of the cover is a cut-out for cord entry and at the other end are three knockouts for cable entry.

The base has been modified to include a hole for back entry of cable and fixing holes for mounting the Block, Terminal, No. 37... over square type conduit outlet boxes, i.e. standard outlet boxes with 2.75 in (70 mm) fixing centres.

A clear space of 6 ins (152 mm) must be allowed on the left side of the units when fixing to the mounting surface. This space allows full movement of the hinged plate, with access to the wiring of the relays etc.

A description of each wall-mounted relay-unit is given in para's 9 to 14.

9 RELAY-UNIT Q 405
Relay-unit Q 405 is provided at HES No. 3 installations which have multiple stations only. The unit contains the circuits which control the lamp signals in the Telephone, Intercom, No. 3/1, and the transmission feed relay for the intercom circuit. The wiring of the unit and the multiple cable terminate on a connection strip (Part 1/SST/71) the cable being connected to the screw terminals.

Wiring details are shown in Dgm. Q 405 and in Dgm ID 174, which is pasted inside the cover.

.Cable connections are shown in Dgms Q 403 and Q 404.

When a HES No. 3 is working subsidiary to a switchboard with a low-power ringing source, it may be necessary to provide a local ringing supply, the output of which is controlled by relay contact RG2. Dgm Q 417 shows details of alternative ringing arrangements when working a HES No. 3 subsidiary to a switchboard or when more than 'five bells are to be rung.

The complete unit weighs approximately 51 lb. (2.5 kg).

10 RELAY-UNIT Q 410
Relay-unit Q 410 replaces Relay-unit Q 405 at HES No. 3 installations when a non-multiple extension is required. In addition to the components and circuits of the Relay-unit Q 405, the Relay-unit Q 410 also contains the components and circuits which connect the two-wire line of a non-multiple extension to the multiple wiring of the system.

In this unit there is no spare contact on relay RG, and when a HES No. 3 with a non-multiple extension is worked subsidiary to a switchboard which has a low-power ringing source, it will be necessary to change relay RG. The relay should be changed for a Relay No. 9871, and the additional contact wired as shown in Dgm Q 417, which gives details of alternative ringing arrangements. The relay RG must also be changed and wired to Dgm Q 417, when more than five magneto bells are to be rung at any installation.

The unit wiring and the multiple cable are terminated on a connection strip (Part 1/SST/71), with the cable connected to the screw terminals.

Wiring details of the Relay-unit Q 410 are shown in Dgm Q 410 and in Dgm LD 175, which is pasted inside the cover.

The complete unit weighs approximately 14 lb. (6.3 kg).

11 RELAY-UNIT Q 415
