Abstract

At the Southern California Co-operative Wind Tunnel, part of the need for rapid and accurate recording of instrument readings on tabular data sheets has been met by the development of a new automatic-translating device. This device has unusually low torque and is especially suitable for use with self-balancing potentiometers. The device picks up the reading as a whole number and electrically transfers it to standard printing and punched-card machines, without lag and without restricting the normal operation of the potentiometer.
