How to send '}' in expect?


I'm trying to use expect to get data from telnet

Here's my code :
set equipment [lindex $argv 0]
set trunk [lindex $argv 1]
set fraction [lindex $argv 2]

set user1 "rnanaha8"
set pass1 "anggur#1"
set user2 "rzulkif8"
set pass2 "Abyan_2011"

spawn ssh rnanaha8@
expect "*word*" { send "$pass1\r" }
expect "*$user1*" { send "telnet\r" }
expect "*ogin*" { send "$user2\r" }
expect "*asswor*" { send "$pass2\r" }
expect "*ANCB*" { send "gsh get_e1t1_frac -eq {$equipment} -trunk $trunk -frac $fraction\r" }
expect "*ANCB*" { send "exit\r" }
expect "*$user1*" { send "exit\r" }
expect eof
but this get error

I don't know, but it looks to me like the '}' after '$equipment' is confusing it... Perhaps you could try escaping it?
