Abstract

645,898. Combinations and sets of resistances; variable-contact resistances. MINISTER OF SUPPLY. March 5,1948, No. 6904. [Class 37] In a wire-wound variable resistor of the type comprising a slider movable within a tubular resistance element the ceramic or other insulating former 2 on which is wound the resistance wire 1 is slotted longitudinally and the slider 16 engages the winding 1 through this slot and is supported through a spring strip 15 by a nut 14 carried by a lead screw 10 secured within the former 2 by the brass end caps 3, 4. To adjust the resistance to the required value a screw-driver is inserted to turn the lead-screw 10 and thus move axially the nut 14 and therefore the slider 16 along the winding 1. The resistor may be substantially enclosed in an insulating mass 19. The device may be arranged for use as an ordinary currentregulating rheostat, as shown, Fig. 1, or as a potentiometer resistance. A modification is described wherein the spindle is of insulating material and comprising two resistance elements on a common former and two sliders arranged for simultaneous axial movement.
