Quote from: RotoTech99 on March 15, 2020, 09:23:15 PMWhat I'm looking for specifically is how to wire the dial inside the desk stand and a 4 wire subset cable inside the desk stand, and then the appropriate connections at the 685, or converted 500/2500 base.
Quote from: poplar1 on March 16, 2020, 05:44:09 AMThe reason for that was to allow either of two hand telephone sets to be used with one 684A or 634A subset. Without the R/RH being open (no continuity) on the on-hook set, the transmitters of both sets would be connected in parallel whenever either phone was in use.
Quote from: RotoTech99 on March 16, 2020, 07:27:03 AMI would like to wire it as a 202; it would seem that I'm only going to need the R terminal for connecting the red handset lead, and the other red wire that would go there, but what about that extra set of contacts? Is there a way to remove those, and keep just the R terminal for connecting the two red leads normally associated with the R terminal? Also, if I connected the two red leads associated with the R terminal, would those two extra contacts cause any issues if left in place?

Quote from: Jack Ryan on March 16, 2020, 06:52:20 AMI would love to know where this information comes from.The only D8s I have come across have, in addition the the extra hook switch contact, have a hook latch. As I understand it, the purpose of the additional contact was to delay connection of the transmitter & dial circuit to the line until after the hook latch was operated.I have not found much in the way of documentation for the D8/215 except for the cording BSP.ThanksJack
