Two telephones can be connected over a line up to 300 m with good insulation. If the distance is less than 50m one common battery will be sufficient. For greater distances it is advisable to use one battery for each telephone; two conductors between the telephones are then sufficient.
If several telephones are to be connected, a separate simple switch with a number of contacts corresponding to the number of telephones in the system is required at each telephone. In such systems only those telephones with switches can call and talk with the others.
An installation with up to 5 telephones can be obtained by means of an inductive resistance with condenser, BC 3060, and a switch for each telephone. All telephones can then call and talk with each other. Only one conversation can be carried on at a time. The length of the lines should not exceed 50m. A suitable battery is composed of 2 dry cells RK 210 connected in series. A suitable battery case is RK 2300. Lead cable, Type EEB, is suitable for the wiring.
