Abstract: A rotor for small motors, or generators, having circumferentially arranged segmental poles which extend over the entire axial length of the rotor can be fabricated by molding a pair of elements from particulate magnetic material of high coercivity with a binder in the shape of identical crown gears; the rotor being completed by arranging the elements on a shaft with the toothed portions facing each other in interfitting engagement. Other modifications are disclosed in which the pole pieces may be formed separately from, or integrally with, a radial pole carrier, and the pole carrier may be in the shape of a spool with the segmental pole pieces assembled thereon.
Abstract: A process for measuring the hysteresis curve of magnetic materials comprises the generation of a magnetic field of varying amplitude, placing the sample to be measured into that field with a measuring coil and a potential coil attached thereto, integrating the signals from those coils to provide simultaneous values of flux density B and internal field intensity H, recording and storing the B and H values and converting these values to digital units in a transient recorder in real time and then feeding these signals to an X-Y recorder, a printer or other display device at a slower rate of speed to provide a hysteresis curve, or a display of programmed values of magnetic characteristics of the sample being measured.
