    Magnetic amplifiers are suitable for use as amplifying elements in the main temperature control loops of nuclear power reactors. The control problems encountered are discussed and a basic temperature controller and three practical designs based on this controller are de scribed. An indication of the expected reliability of these systems is given, based on experience with similar amplifiers in airc... View full abstract»

    An electro-mechanical recorder giving an intensity-modulated record on dry paper is described which indicates the presence of fish within 1¿ fathoms of the seabed (i.e. under the headline). Experiments were made with several possible types of triggered recorder to determine the best design, also with various signal delays required for seabed lock. Details are given of the moving-iron recorder, fi... View full abstract»

    Electronic cardiac stimulators using blocking oscillators are described. The units operate (1) through wires from an external unit, (2) internally with external power supply and (3) as a completely sell-contained implanted unit which can be controlled from outside the body by inductive pick-up.

  • The fundamental importance of the Heaviside operational calculus

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):461 - 477

    It is an essential part of Heaviside's operational calculus that the symbol p is an operator equivalent to d/dt and that p and p¿1 the inverse or integrating operator, are commutative. This is ensured if the operation of integration is not confused with the operation of selection, i.e. if the lower limit of integration is taken as minus infinity, and is only raised to a finite value when we are s...

  • Measuring circuits used in an automatic transistor tester

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):479 - 488

    A machine which is capable of testing, sorting and measuring all the significant parameters of germanium r.f. alloy transistors at a rate of 1200 transistors per hour is described. Since the machine uses essentially only one test head, each measuring circuit, which is mounted on a printed circuit card, is connected in turn to this test head by means of dry reed relays. The paper describes how 10 d... View full abstract»

  • Data collection systems, their application and design

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):489 - 496
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (876 KB)

    A distinction is drawn between two types of data gathering systems. Possible applications for one of these, namely data collection systems, are discussed. The requirements of such systems are then outlined and two types of data collection system are described to indicate possible solutions to these requirements. The final section deals with the totalsystems approach and the effect it will have on ... View full abstract»

  • Data acquisition systems for control applications

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):497 - 506
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1027 KB)

    The features of data acquisition systems are discussed. The advantages of modularity are stressed with particular reference to the interface concept. Basic system elements are described. Operations on data which can be carried out within the acquisition system are mentioned briefly. View full abstract»
