3 Claims. (01. 179-27)
This invention relates to telephone systems and
more particularly to semiautomatic telephone
systems.
An object of the invention is to facilitate the
_ completion of calls through a toll switchboard to
subscribers’ lines in’ an automatic community
(unattended) exchange over operators’ connect
ing ,(cord) circuits primarily arranged for com
‘ pleting calls over trunk circuits to subscribers’
10 lines in main automatic exchanges at which ex
changes a reversal of the line battery occurs when
the ?nal selector switch connects with the called
line.
time and tends to slow up the service, particularly
when a considerable number of such calls are
completed at certain hours of the day.
A speci?c object of the invention is therefore to
provide facilities whereby a single cord circuit
can be interchangeably used to complete calls to
trunks of either of the above described types
without any of the objections above described.
A feature of the invention whereby the forego
ing specific object is obtained, resides in such
modi?cations of the present operator’s cord and
position circuits and community o?lce trunks that
upon completion of dialing on a community office
>
In toll switchboard cord circuits adapted for
15 luse with trunks of the above-described latter type,
the dial circuit, once ‘it is connected to the cord
circuit, remains associated therewith until the
before-mentioned reversal occurs at which time
a polarized relay operates in the toll operator’s
V iolposition to disconnect the dial circuit from the
cord.
The circuits of what are commonly known as
community dial o?ices, i. e. relatively small un
attended satellite of?ces, are in some cases not
25'; arranged to transmit a battery reversal when
the switch connects with the called line and hence
a toll cord arranged to function with trunks to a
main exchange over which a reversal occurs when
the called line is seized could not be operated in
trunk, and the releasevof a. positional dial key,
the trunk conductors at the toll o?ice will be 15
reversed to supply line battery to the cord in a
reversed direction thereby operating a polarized
relay in the position dial circuit to disconnect the
dial circuit from the cord and condition the cord
circuit for conversation in the'same manner as 20
when the call is extended to a main exchange and
a
line
connected to the trunk, the dial is connected and
the speech transmission circuit through the cord
is opened, all'under control of a polarized relay in
$51‘: the position circuit which only operates when
the line battery is reversed.
'
To overcome this dii‘?culty, in the past, it has
been the custom, when community of?ce trunks
,
are present in the same switchboard with trunks
4.0‘ to main exchange, to provide a special dial jack
for each community o?ice trunk and, when a call
is to be extended thereover, after plugging up the
main trunk jack with the cord circuit to be used
in completing the connection, to plug another
cord circuit, from that over which the connection
7 is to‘bebompleted, into the dial jack.
The oper
ator then operates the dial key and actuates the
dial now associated with this other cord and upon
the completion of dialing removes this other cord
50 'from the dial jack whereupon a talking connec
tion is established by means of the ?rst cord. By
this sequence of operation, the operator is enabled
to complete calls over both types of trunks, but,
in the case of connections to community o?ice
7 55ytrunks, the double handling of cords consumes
occurs
the following description and accompanying 25
drawings, Figs. 1, 2 and 3, which ?gures, when
arranged as shown in Fig. 4, represent a toll oper
ator’s cord circuit together with its associated
position and dial circuit (as shown in Figs. 1
t the same manner when connected to a community _ and 2)
o?ice trunk for the reason that once the cord is
battery reversal , automatically
thereat when the called line is seized.
Other features will appear hereinafter from
adapted to be connected to either a
standard trunk circuit terminating at an auto
matic central office, arranged to reverse the bat
tery supply to the cord when a called line is
seized, or tobe connected to, a trunk circuit ex
tending to a so-called community dial of?ce not
so arranged, as shown in Fig. 3.
' Fig. 1 of the drawings shows the position dial
circuit. Fig. '2 shows a cord circuit with the
operator’s telephone circuit, and Fig. 3 shows
the outgoingjack of a standard out-dial trunk to 40
an automatic exchange and the circuit at the out
going end of a trunk to a community dial office
arranged to simulate a battery reversal back
into a connected dial circuit when‘ the position
dial keyis released at the termination of the dial
ing operation.
