Rotary Pulse
Dial Telephone


The rotary telephone sends
out electrical pulses when
one dials out.
This is done by rotating the
dial wheel.

Lift the receiver off the hook
and wait for dial tone.
Place a finger in one of the
finger holes, rotate the
wheel until the finger touches
the finger stop.
Release the finger, the
wheel rotates backward,
sending out the pulses.

The dialing wheel returns to
its home position.

The speed of the rotating
wheel is very important,
if the dialing wheel rotates
too fast, or too slow, the
dialing will not send the
correct information to the
telephone exchange
equipment.

The correct speed is about
2 seconds for the wheel to
rotate from position zero
to home position.

A seasoned telephone
repairman would sometimes
use the 1000 - 2000 count

The correct pulses are(10.5 pps).

The speed is adjusted by
gently bending the two
flat brake springs to the
right tension.

The braking flat springs
controls the speed of a
spinning weight.

As the dialing wheel is
turning a series of electrical
opening and closing a set of
contacts.

The open and close timing
of the contacts has to be
accurate so the equipment
in the central office can follow.

A 62/38 ratio,
(62% open, 38% closed) is
necessary to send an
accurate pulse code.

This adjustment is done by
forming the contact metal
strips.

This adjustment requires a
dwell type meter to be able to
set the make-break percent
accurately.

The volume of the bell is
adjustable by loosing an
off center screw in the
center of the bell, then by
rotating the bell, the bell
is moved away or closer
to the clapper.

Schematic


The mouth piece of the telephone
is composed of thin metal,
carbon graduals sandwiched
between the front and back
of the unit.

When a person speaks, the
top tiny metal cover
fluctuates, compressing and
releasing against the carbon
graduals.

An electrical current follows
the pattern of the voice.

This current flows is picked
up by wires and sent to the
telephone exchange
equipment, and on to the
person on the other end
of the line.

The electrical pulses are
converted back to voice,
on the receiving end.
