Network ID and Wiring Needed
« on: August 10, 2017, 05:38:16 PM »
I was looking through an old bucket, and came across some network boards that I
need id on, and hopefully a schematic.

The black thing is the hook switch.
I have photos posted on filefactory as I had problems uploading to this site.

I have attached a few lower res pictures.

EDIT:  Images added in the order of the links posted below, the last two were combined into one, for forum posterity and convenience

Looks like an AE part, probably fundamentally the same as late type 80 set networks except for the addition of the cradle switch.  Some combined networks with cradle switches were used in customer owned housings, so this may be for that purpose, or perhaps it's for some AE phone I am not familiar with.  But the "HB" number is a clear indication of AE in addition to the appearance of some of the components.

I did not open the high res photos because they are too large and time consuming to open.  The site where they are loaded prevents them from being downloaded by simply right clicking and saving them, a much quicker way which normally works but this site forces the user to open the page in a browser.  This kind of photo sharing site is IMO too much of a nuisance to be bothered with.

If you posted the direct links like this one, it would be possible to open and save the photos with much less time wasted:

Thanks for the AE info. Gives me something to go on.

You're welcome.  I suggest opening each of the links you posted previously and posting the direct JPG links here so others can see the rest of the details more easily.  Someone might have other insights about this part and might be more inclined to look if the photos open directly.

That may be but I did not have that problem with that site. I was able to right click on either the browser image or "enlarged" image and save both to disk.

After doing so, I attached all 7 images to the first topic post. Each can be clicked on to enlarged.

Links break, images on external sites disappear for a variety of reasons (Picase, PhotoBucket, account cancelled, image removed) so for the long term posterity of the forum, the moderators strongly suggest that all images be uploaded to the forum, not externally linked.

Here's one example of many why external links are strongly discouraged:

It looks like this network was used in the AE 80E set which appears to use a network with cradle switch integrated onto the network board shown in Fig 9:

http://www.telephonecollectors.info/index.php/document-repository/doc_download/4877-gsp-473-215-202-i6-aug81-type-80e-rotary-dial

More careful comparison of the network with the schematic shown in Fig. 4 would prove or disprove this but the wiring diagram at the top of this figure shows a close correlation between the terminal layouts in the photos and figure.

BTW, photos 01 and 05 are essentially the same view.

Correct.

It should be noted that the images uploaded to the first post of this topic by a moderator for posterity were uploaded in exactly the same order of the external links provided in that topic.

Attached is an image of the sequential screen captures from the list of links in the first topic verifying the uploaded photos are exactly as presented by BigBird0000 in the external image hosting site. Nothing was edited in the uploaded images other than combining the last two images to keep the image count down to 6. Anything duplicated was by done by BigBird0000 on the external site for whatever reason or mistake on his part.
