The picture shows 2 plugs, the bottom plug with the lable of 1 (sleeve). That would make it a shorting plug or something else. Should it be labled 2 for Ring? That makes more sense. The second plug should not be there otherwise as it is not pertinent to T & R. Gary. ID#=6298326 Garylcamp (talk) 14:39, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
Although the second plug does not show a ring, it is still useful to show both plugs, with and without a ring, to avoid confusing readers who have seen plugs without rings and who may falsely assume that the ring and sleeve are the same objects. Greensburger (talk) 15:07, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
- It would be more useful to depict the type of telephone switchboard plugs in general use, which are different from the types actually pictured. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 10:19, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
Conflict regarding earth connections
The last paragraph of the introduction says that both conductors are floating, ie not earthed.
Immediately following this, the Origin section states that the tip is connected to ground.
No citations are given for either statement. Do different systems have different wiring configurations? This should be clarified.
