Quote from: starcross on Dec 07, 2013, 08:36 pmThere are two parts of the Jack-in unit that are required. 1) The Holding bracket2) The Electronics plateThe holding bracket is fairly straight forward, it screws into the base Bracket and has a slider for the Electronics plate. It has a nice electrical connection box that has blades which cuts the connections to the Electronics plate when it slides out to be serviced. This is an example of the Holding Bracket in the Glasgow Wilson Street Box in 2010.This is a clearer set of photos from the PA1 Pillar in Avoncroft from Rodney.Sadly Rodney didn't take any measurements for either plate or bracket when the museum staff gave him access to the unit. He did give me the height of the phone plate though.Still we can see that the basic shape is the same no matter if it is for the Pillar or a Box. The pillar has the same mounting posts cast into it as the Base Bracket does on the Panel. Its safe to say that the Electronics Plate is likely the same shape as the Avoncroft Unit, likely because it was for the triangular casting on the Pillar.The Electronics Plate is much more complicated, I plan to cover it more in depth in the PA1 Pillar Plans thread. However looking down at the plate we can see the basic shape. The phone plate is what you would see through the cover, everything else is hidden away. The phone plate is a separate piece that is screwed to the electronics plate. Likely the phone plate was painted black while the cover is painted that Light Green color industrial things tended to get painted. You can see the contrast in the photo of the left side of the cover.
