  TSCM Handbook - Chapter 4
The telephone exchange normally has a central 48 volt DC battery which is constantly being trickle charged from the main electricity supply.
In the standard telephone, the exchange line was switched right through in solid copper connections via hook switch etc., to the handset (in order to power the carbon granule microphone, among other things).
With single AC operated electronic telephones, and automatic answering telephones, wiretaps are possible as for standard telephones, except that "transmitting microphones" may not be possible since the exchange battery voltage may not be extended to the handset in the off-hook condition.

 Telephone exchange Information
In the field of telecommunications, a telephone exchange or central office houses equipment that is commonly known as simply a switch, which is a piece of equipment that connects phone calls.
The local exchange automatically senses an off hook (tip) telephone condition, provides dial tone to that phone, receives the pulses or DTMF tones generated by the phone, and then completes a connection to the called phone within the same exchange or to another distant exchange.
Telephone switches are usually owned and operated by a telephone service provider or "carrier" and located in their premises, but sometimes individual businesses or private commercial buildings will house their own switch, called a PBX, or Private Branch Exchange.
