Abstract:

Continued research is reported on the design of a baroswitch. Setting hysteresis of the baroswitch becomes severe with four elements installed due to friction in carriage guides. An arrangement using frictionless guides is being tested. Several elements with more rigid setting arms and better balanced contacts are being constructed. Gear train is being revised with more ratio to offset increased torque of dry operation. Size 5 motor-generator now available makes possible improved gear-train package. Potentiometers wound to pressure-altitude function for 33,000-ft range were received. The manufacturer states that a potentiometer for 68,000-ft range is also feasible. Author
