GEC 746 Table Telephone
The GEC746 table telephone is a new instrument which has evolved from the 706 and 710 range of telephones used by administrations throughout the world for many years. It retains the virtues of it's predecessors - quality, performance and versatility.
This attractively styled telephone uses tropicalised components throughout and makes use of printed circuit techniques; both these features help to make the GEC746 one of the most advanced telephones of it's type available today. It is a fine example of the latest developments in telephone engineering.
All components, except the dial, handset, and ringer, are mounted on a single robust printed-circuit unit. The use of miniature components makes this possible without impairing the reliability and ruggedness of the telephone.
There are no exposed switch contacts: the cradle switch is a fully sealed unit and the dial off-normal and pulsing contacts are beneath a clamped-on dust cover.
Tropicalised components are used throughout: this ensures that the telephone will operate reliably under a wide range of adverse climatic conditions.
The smooth, stylish exterior does not harbour dust. The one-piece case moulding incorporates the carrying handle and can be fitted with a single pushbutton when required for shared service, operator-recall or bell on/off operation.
The telephone is available in a wide range of colours: ivory, yellow, dual grey, dual green, red, blue, and black; on dual-tone telephones, the handset, cords and dial surround are the darker shade. The plastic used for the case and handset is virtually impervious to scratching and staining.
The built-in regulator maintains a substantially constant speech level, independent of line length, on lines shorter than 400 ohms; it has virtually no attenuating effect on long lines.
The articulated-trigger dial has a clear plastic finger plate so that the numbers beneath it are always visible - a feature that helps to reduce dialling errors. The black figures are printed on an antique-silver background for greatest clarity.
Other telephones in the GEC74 range include the GEC741 wall-mounting telephone and the GEC740 switching telephone.
