Siemens' Drum Winding

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Illustrating the principle of Siemens’ drum winding. In order to make the winding and connections clear, one coil and the commutator is shown assumbled, although the latter is not put in place until after all the sections have been wound, the ends of the wires temporarily twisted together until all can be soldered to the risers. the cores of these early machines were of wood, overspun circumferentially with iron wire before receiving the longitudinal copper windings.” -Hawkins, 1917
