Com-Key 2152
« on: January 12, 2019, 02:03:57 AM »
 ??? did some reading and found out what the "Com-Key" models meant... mine must be a 416... (even though its not a Com-Key.) 4 incoming lines and up to 16 stations. WOW! so, my question is, and I haven't seen anything in the museum pictures of these yet, but has anyone ever collected the com key 2152 series system? 21 incoming lines and up to 52 stations! neato! BUT, the units were huge and the KTS was massive! I'm wondering? did they all perish in 911?

A 416 Comkey set is vastly different from a standard key set.
I don't believe the set you got from eBay is for a 416. Because I had 416 sets way back, and I tried using a keyset with the others nothing doing, it just wouldn't work.
Do more research, there are other comkey systems than the 416.

There's been a lot of discussion in this Facebook group on Comkey 416 sets -- including many photos and videos.

has anyone ever found any 2152 series phone consoles? I was amazed to just see pictures of the units from the bell pamphlets that where out. any actual items collected? so far, it seems like the 416 is the big winner right now... nothing larger?
