Heck, I've not heard the word "selsyn" for about twenty years....
I thought this was another technology consigned to the annals of history.
You must be nearly as old as I.Only twenty years? About 45 years ago, one of the tasks at my first industrial job was testing selsyns, don't think that I have seen one since.
You must be nearly as old as I.
I did learn about them but I can't honestly say I have ever come across any.
Yes, mercury archaic rectifiers, Ward-Leonard sets, power Mag Amps, Thyratrons, Carbon Pile regulators, and all manner of weird on wonderful things that were around before the Dead Sea reported sick.
But, sadly, no Selsyns.
You've made me feel like a child with a deprived upbringing, that I have missed out on an essential slice of experience, and realise just how empty and meaningless my life has been.....
Congratulations, old fellow!You can read about my 68th birthday in your local newspaper next month.
My recollection is that the theory, in my case, was also related to weapons guidance. Static installations of gun turrets I think.It was at Lear Seigler testing military areo/space equipment. Don't remember much but I think that they were for guidance control of small armed rockets.
Hey, Iam wondering if anyone would know what the effects would be if you ran a Selsyn motor with DC on the rotor instead of AC? Would this not become a generator and still turn the secondary rotor?
