Product Description:

Lineman's Telephone "Buttset" Tester Set is a professional piece of equipment designed for telephone installers, repair technicians, and phone system maintenance personnel. This durable device is full of features for existing and newly installed communications systems for proper functionality. The tester has a 3 position volume switch, which can provide volume gain. The ring mode can be set to send either DTMF tones or rotary dial pulses. A three-position mode switch allows the tester to be set to monitor, ring, or talk modes: the monitor mode provides a high-impedance coupling to the telephone line, allowing it to be monitored without interfering with existing conversations, data transmissions, or signaling. The ring mode allows the tester to be on-hook with an electronic ringer connected to the telephone line. This provides a low-impedance coupling to the telephone line for monitoring of optional line identification tones. The handset includes an automatic last-number redial function, which is capable of repeating up to 31 digits. It also features a number memory storage capability, allowing the technician to store different numbers of up to 15 digits each, including the insertion of 3-second pauses for use with trunk lines.
