This LST is no longer available, withdrawn from the BT Product Supply portfolio in October 1986 due to technical problems.
The LST No. 13A has now been superseded by the new LST 14, Prelude.

Approval Number 5/1000/3/E/500074
Approved as supplied for connection to the BT telephone system.
Not approved for connection to WB 900.

A 240 volts, 13 Amp, 50 Hertz Supply is required for the Plug Top Transformer.  This transformer is rated at 12v dc, 350ma.

The LST 13A is suitable for use on Phone Socket installations on DELs and most types of PBX/CCS two wire extensions. Not suitable for use on "C" wire PMBX's or WB 900.

The LST 13A has a REN of 1.5.

A quantity of LST 13A's (Facilityphone 200) was frozen in BT central depots for maintenance use. Since the withdrawal of the LST 13A from the BT Product Supply portfolio in October 1986 all faulty LST 13A's should have been replaced with an LST 11A when faulty.

There are 4 Alkaline AA sized batteries needed for this telephone, which should be replaced when the time clock display pulses on and off.

When changing the batteries the user should disconnect both the 12 volt supply and telephone line cord before opening the battery compartment. They should not remove all 4 batteries at once, but change 2 end to end batteries at a time to prevent loss of memory store.
