PBX (Private Branch Exchange) would normally have trunks to/from the CO (thus the Branch Exchange terminology in the name PBX) where as a PAX (Private Automatic Exchange) would typically not have trunks so it is a Telephone Intercom.By "4 connections" you mean it can handle 4 calls at the same time, correct?Looks very similar to the one that I have yet to go collect. Do you have this now dsk?Terry

Quote from: twocvbloke on September 12, 2013, 02:03:21 AMI presume that you mean it's located between floors, thus making transport in a lift difficult as it doesn't stop on mid-floors (unless you do a "Being John Malkovich" stop on Floor 7 & 1/2 thing with the lift car!!), you could lighten the load by taking parts out if they unplug easily, means more trips back & forth, but it's better doing that than putting your back out trying to move it safely...
