Abstract

10,916. Hinke, L. von. May 12. Range-finders ; bearings and courses, determining and plotting.-Relates to apparatus for giving the distance, position, and course of ships or other moving objects, as well as data for the laying of coast guns. The ship is followed with a rangefinder m, the movement of which causes the course of the ship to be graphically traced on a table c. A pencil w is moved to or from the vertical axis of rotation of the instrument, proportionally to the elevation or depression of the telescope of the range-finder, and at the same time follows the horizontal rotary motion of the telescope. On a pillar j, secured to an alidade d, is mounted the terrestial telescope m, which is movable about a horizontal axis s. The telescope carrier has a prismatic part q, which rests on a cam-disc r so as to be elevated or lowered as the cam-disc moves in one direction or the other. The cam-disc r is rotated through bevel-wheels 5, 4, on turning a milled head x. At the same time, a pencil w is moved in a radial direction. The milled head x is keyed on a spindle 3 mounted in bearings on the alidade. The central portion of the spindle is screw-threaded to receive a nut 6 connected to the pencil w. The telescope is moved in a horizontal direction by means of a toothed wheel f, which is mounted in bearings on the alidade and engages a toothed are g of a horizontal graduated segment. The alidade, which rotates about a vertical pin and is supported by rollers, carries a vernier 12 by which readings on the graduated segment are taken. The distance of the object is read off on a scale, provided on the toothed wheel 5, by means of a pointer connected to the alidade.
