The instrument case is a very strong iron casting, the front hinged and
secured to the body by hexagon head bolts for which a spanner is provided.
A chamber is fitted to the base containing line and extension bell terminals,
with two screwed entries to take cable glands. The generator, which has
'Alnico' magnets, is coupled to a substantial handle via a canvas drive and
watertight gland. The 1000 ohm polarised ringer operates a 6inch gong. The inset transmitter is fitted in an iron chamber on the front, protected by metal gauze.
An inset receiver inside the case operates via a flexible metallic tube to an acoustic earpiece.
When the listening tube is lifted to the ear it actuates (via a watertight gland in the case) a cam which operates the switch springs controlling the speaking battery and receiver circuits.
Two BA 4935 G.E.C. dry cells are mounted in metal containers on the inside of the door.
A suitable extension bell is the K 8312 type.
