Manufactured by Krone of West Germany, Versatel is intended to take up and enlarge the
market slot occupied by the one piece Eiger, which will be discontinued. Although Versatel
started life as a one piece instrument - with line seizure and release controlled by a
user operated locking switch - Telecom's requirements for gravity reaction seizure and
release has transformed the telephone into a two-piece model. Now all electronic
components are housed in a moulding similar in appearance to the handset of the familiar
Contempra. The plastic base serves only to operate the switch hooks and as a resting place
for the telephone when not in use. Versatel comes in red, green and mushroom colours - all
with black bases - and has the following features:-
integral volume controllable tone caller.
keypad dialling with 'last number redial'.
new high-impedance plug connected.
Versatel will be suitable for use on direct exchange lines, new plan installations and
most PBX's. It will not, however, be suitable for use on shared service, old-style plan
numbers, C-wire signalling PMBX's or MF signalling PABX extensions.
This model is Loop Disconnect dialling only except for the TSR No. 8020G
which is MF dialling.
Can be wall mounted on a Bracket, Telephone No. 60D.
