Abstract:

Successful completion of this Production Engineering Measure resulted in a significant advancement in the state of the art of ruggedized a-c iron vane panelmeters. The taut-band suspension instruments developed offer the following important advantages 1 elimination of friction error, 2 reduced power loss, 3 improved temperature characteristics, 4 longer trouble-free service life, 5 drastic improvements in performance after vibration and shock tests. Preproduction approvals were obtained on each of the six contract items. Pilot runs of fifty units each were accomplished using limited production tooling to establish procedures suitable for producing a minimum of fifty units per eight hour shift. Author
