    It is not intended, in this brief presentation of the broad outlines of the important subject of world communication, to do more than touch on the technical methods whereby communication is now being carried on or by which it is expected that communication will be carried on in the future. The subject matter is altogether too voluminous to permit more than a very general summary of the methods now... View full abstract»

    A description is given of an alternating-current potentiometer which is suitable for the measurement of electromotive forces having frequencies up to 10,000 cycles per second. Both the phase and magnitude are read directly from the dial settings. A special type of a-c. differential galvanometer used in connection with the potentiometer is also described.

    The paper is concerned with the finding of new empirical equations for the relations between the “fundamental quantities” of incandescent lamps (voltage, efficiency, candle power, life, wattage, current, and resistance). These equations should be simple and should be free from the main drawback of the equations used heretofore, namely, that the reduction from one given value of a cer... View full abstract»

  • Shunting characteristics of the relay in an A-C. track circuit employed in railroad signaling

    Publication Year: 1921, Page(s):919 - 925

    It is usually the practise in railroad signaling to automatically control the operation of signals and other safety devices in the system by means of a relay operated in an electrical circuit which is completed through the rails of the track. The track is sectionalized by placing insulated joints in the rails so that each section becomes insulated from adjoining sections. The rails are utilized th... View full abstract»
