tion of such rotor there is employed a block
shaped permanent magnet il of one of the highly
eiîicient Alnicc magnetic materials having a
thickness dimension (axially of the rotor) which
is substantially equal to the over-all thickness of
the stack oi laminations forming the core E, a
length sufficient largely to span the distancebetween the pole faces, and a width which is small
relative to its length. The magnet has its mag
netic axis parallel to its length dimension just
noted, and has its polar end surfaces arcuately
shaped. Mounted on these end surfaces are arcu
ate shoes it made of a high-permeability and
low-hysteresis material such as of soft iron.
These shoes are held to themagnet by non-mag
netic-caps iI having rim flanges il' which em
brace the shoes and clamp them tightly to the
magnet, the caps being suitably rigidly held to
the shoes as by spot welding. Secured to these
caps at their centers are spindles I2. These
spindles have conical ends or pivots which are
to engage suitable jewels, not shown, at the center
line 3 to hold the rotor 8 in a position wherein
the peripheral surfaces of the shoes I0 confront
the pole faces 4 and 4" and are spaced equally
and uniformly therefrom.
On one of the spindles I2 there is prövided a

pole surfaces which have substantially uniform
pole strength and which subtend large angles at
the rotor pivot axis, as is aforedescribed, and by
providing a field core having very small reluc
tance.
The criteria for a uniform scale distribution
within a given range are (1) that when the field
coil is not energized the rotor shall not be at
tracted magnetically to any one angular posi
tion in preference to another but shall, when not
mechanically biased, float freely' within that
range, and (2) the linkage of the magnet ilux
with the ileld coil shall vary linearly with angular
deflection of the rotor within that range. The
first criterion mentioned establishes that the
total flux of the rotor magnet shall not vary with
angular positioning oi’ the rotor; while, in prac
tice, some variation in total ñux is permitted, the 50
permissible variation becomes stringently small
for highly sensitive meters. Since the present
rotor construction has substantially equipoten
tial pole surfaces, the total magnet ñux will re
main fixed so long as the eiîective reluctance of

physical dimensions, however, the shoes i8 may
each have an angular length of 165°, with 15°
separations at the ends; and the air slits t may
each have a peripheral length suñlcient to sub
tend 15° at the pivot axis. For these values, the
shoes ill will span the air slits over a 150° range
of deiiection of the rotor, which is a range of
traversal of the rotor magnetic axis over 75° plus
and minus from the aforementioned medial plane
between the field poles. This, it will be under
stood, is the maximum range of the rotor, for the-
particular physical dimensions noted, in which
the air-gap reluctance -will remain substantially
constant.
When the rotoi~ is at the left extremity of the
scale just mentioned, substantially all of the mag
net ñux will take a return path through the en
tire length of the field core as is indicated in
Figure 3. As the rotor is moved clockwise from
the left extremity of the scale, more and more
of the magnet flux will become localized in the
ileld pole portions, all of the ñux becoming there

It will be understood that the present meter
may be readily adapted to higher or lower cur

noted. This adaptation is preferably made by
using fewer turns of larger wire or more turns
of finer wire in the field coil. If a multiple range
meter is desired, appropriate taps may be
brought out from the field coil. In all ranges,
however, there may be utilized the same power
of 50 microwatts input for a full-scale deflection.
