Default 8-way socket identification?

I'm posting this here because I think it's most likely telephone system / PABX related.

This is a wall mounted socket measuring 80 x 65 x 35 mm.
It has 8 sockets, wired to screw terminals. The two holes and slot in the centre are for location only, with no connections.

There is a small trademark on the back which looks like the letters TG superimposed, and the number 1987 which may be a date or a part number.

Does anyone know what it is?

I tried a Google image search and found a fair few images. It looks like it's some sort of German telephone interface socket.

You might need to use Google translate unless you can speak German.

It was along time ago but I do remember seeing these in conjunction with our German Nixdorf kit in the bank. Would have been comms related for sure.

It's German ADo8 - A Telex line connector.
