      Wiring a new Telephone Master Switch with different setup

      Please help!
      I am trying to swap over my master switch from the image below to the new master switch in the 2nd image and need to know what wire goes to each of the 1-6 outputs on new switch.




      The current setup has the following:-
      Main wire into the house
      Blue & White goes to the A connection
      Blue goes to the B connection
      2nd wire (think this is for the other sockets in the house)
      Blue goes to the 2 connection
      Orange goes to the 3 connection
      Orange & White goes to the 4 connection
      Blue & White goes to the 5 connection

      The socket shown in the second image could just about be described as a telephone master socket in that it has a bell (ringing) capacitor but I wouldn't use it. As far as I can see it does not contain a spark suppressor or temporary out of service (ToS) resistor or any facility to isolate the incoming line from the extension wiring.

      The latest Openreach approved socket is an NTE5C MK2 Master Socket. This has all the above components/facilities and has the added advantage that a filtered VDSL faceplate can be fitted to it which has two sockets negating the requirement for a micro-filter to separate the telephone and broadband signals.
      moleman and Meteosat like this.
