signor to Associated Telephone & Telegraph Company, Chicago, Ill., a corporation of Delaware Application December 18, 1939, Serial No. 311,051 In Great Britain January 19, 1939 12 Claims.
The present invention relates to telephone systems and is more particularly concerned with systems provided with facilities for automatically printing information relating to a call.
In the arrangements so far proposed the iden- --tification of the subscribers whose particulars are recorded have been made according to a numerical code, and while there is no difficulty as regards the calling subscribers number it is not clear that the numerical code for the exchange or for the zone and exchange will be readily identifiable by the subscriber and an object of the present invention is to print the wanted subscribers exchange at least in a form which will enable ready identification to be made.
The object of the present invention is to provide arrangements whereby a certain number of letters of the exchange or zone name are printed in place of or in addition to the numerical code for such exchange or zone.
According to one feature of the invention, therefore, a translating arrangement is provided which in response to numerical digits representing a zone or exchange exerts a control corresponding to a number of letters of the exchange or zone name to cause the printer to print such letters in place of said numerical digits,
According to a further feature of the invention, a switching device adapted to be set to a number of positions, each representing a different exchange or zone causes a printer to print the name or part of the name of the exchange or zone corresponding to the position to which the switching device is set.
According to another feature of the invention, the various items of information are transmitted in the form of coded impulses to a storage device which includes an arrangement for decoding the received impulses and a switching device comprising at least one two-directional switch which is set in accordance with the numerical designation of the exchange or zone of the wanted party and serves to control the operation of a printing device to print a number of letters representing the exchange or zone name.
The invention will be better understood from the following description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings which show one method of carrying the invention into effect.
These drawings comprise Figs. 1-21, inclusive, and the Figs. 1-16 and 19-21 are similar to Figs. 40-56, 14, and 58 respectively inthe application of John Ellis Ostline, Serial No. 278,728, filed June 12, 1939. Furthermore, Figs. 1-16, 19 and 21 are similar to Figs. 15-31 and 33, respectively, in the application of John Ellis Ostline, Serial No. 278,729, filed June 12, 1939. The circuits and apparatus contained in the present application have been designated in the same manner as the corresponding equipment in the above-mentioned applications. For a detailed description of the complete system including those figures of the above applications not shown in the drawings of the instant application, reference may be had to the said prior applications in which the present drawings may be substituted for the drawings of said applications to which they are above referred as being similar.
More specifically Fig. 20 shows the code employed for transmitting the various items of information. Figs. 1-16 show the circuits of the printer controller and printer as disclosed in the above mentioned applications, suitably amended to interwork with the translating device shown in Figs. 17 and 18 which is necessary in order to print on the ticket the first three or four letters of the exchange or zone designation. These figures should be arranged as shown on Fig. 21. Finally Fig, 20 shows a ticket printed with the particulars of a call.
A detailed description will, however, not be given of the whole of the circuits disclosed in these figures since such a detailed description is given in the above mentioned applications. In the present specification a detailed description of the circuit operations will only be given in so far as they are different from those disclosed in the previous applications but a brief description will be given of the general operation of the whole circuit.
The printer controller is taken into use on the termination of a connection over a toll line control circuit. The toll line control circuit has stored in it the following information.
1. The calling partys number.
2. The called partys number.
3, The rate at which the call is to be charged.
4.'The duration of the call.
5. A special indication if the calling subscriber wishes to be informed at the end of the connection of the total cost of the call.
This information is stored in code in the toll line control circuit and on the seizure of the printer controller is transferred together with the time of day and day of the month to groups of storage relays therein. This transfer is effected over the wipers ISM-435i of the switch IP2 (Fig. 1). These wipers have their corresponding bank contacts each connected to one relay of a group of four storage relays. Thus contact I of wiper I348 is connected to relay 13!!! of storage group XXI; contact I of wiper I349 is connected to relay I329 of storage group XXI and so on. Of these storage groups )QKI, XXII, XXIII, 1, VI, VII, and XIII are shown in full, the remainder being omitted in order not unduly to complicate the drawings.
The first item of information to be transferred is the rate at which the call is to be chargedand this is stored on group XXI. The duration of
