To all w imm it may concern Be it known that we, JOHN H. HUNT- and Wimmer A. CHnYsT., citizens of the United States of America, residing et Dayton, county o1' lbontgomery, State of Chio, have invented certain new end useful Improvements in induction Coils, of which the oilowing is a full, clear, and exact description. n

This invention relates to ignition equipment for renin-cylinder engines, f-nd m.ore particularly, for engines used in aviation work where rnexirnuin eiiciency, lightness of Weight und cornpectnees oi' arrangement lare required. Among the objectsof invention, the. followin are enumerated.

To prot/'ice en improved ignition coil which is exceedingly simple and compact in design, light in Weight, ondrelialoie in op eration; and one wherein the various parte ere readily accessible for repairs or ndjustments., n l i It also en sim of the presen-t invention to concentrate the magnetic field of the coil to as greet :L degree as possible, and to prevent losses in the magnetic field.

Further objects Yand advantages of the present invention will be apparent from the :toilowing description, reference beingbsd to the accompanying drawings, wherein e preferred embodiment oi the present invenv tion i5 clearly shown.

The present invention has been described in our copending application Serial blo. 208,369. tiled December Qi., 191.1, of which the present application is zt division.

ln the drawings:

1 is :in end View oi the induction coil", thc distributor heed end related parts being .shown in section; l

Fig. 3 is n sectional View taken on the line 8-3 of Fig. 2;

Fig. f1 is e, perspective viewoi the braclo,

ets supporting the induction coil;

Fig. is a sectional View on line 5---5 of Fig. 2.

In `the drawings a bose of non-conducting materiel 10G, adapted to be secured in en annular recess formed in a distributor heed,- is secured thereto by means of bolts 107 and 168 which pass throi'lgh and make electrica connection with the coil brackets 109 and 110, and with the strips and 56 'up-'turned ends 111, and bracket 110 with 11p-turned ends 112. It will be upon reference to Fig. that bracket 11G vis shorter than bracket 109, so 'that the ends .112'moy be placed opposite ends 111, with spaces therebetween for the reception of insulation discs 113 (see Fig. E). 111 und 112 are provided with notches 111i for the reception of the coil assembly which will new be described. Seid notches 11e ere noch provided witbsn enlarged portion .spaced from the outer end of the notch.

The coilL assembly cons-ists of laminated. core 115 surrounding the bolt 115. Upon the core are mounted prirnnry windings 117. .indicated by large squares, and the secondary windings 118j indicated by the snieii sonores in Fig. 3. The ends ci" the coil provided with insulating cops 1.?0. carrying bushings 120, and outside of these cape are pieced three pairs of leinineted discs 121.12111, end 121 provided with. holes for the reception of the bush@v ings. `The purpose of these discs is to con fino the magnetic field to the coil windings es much as possible. Eecn disc is provided with o notch 122 extending from the periphery to the center to prevent 'formation of' eddy currents, 'and ,to permit of the posH sage of bolt 116. Since it is highly desirable in aviation Work Where this distribu- 4tor is adapted 'to be used, to keep down the weight so far es possible, it hes been found that the discs more distant from the ends or the ienimoted core may be less 1n. diameter "the/n those discs 'which are nearer7 Without any loss in efficiency in the provision against losses in the magnetic ed.

Insulation discs 113 centrally npertnred for the reception of insulntionspacers 123"p are centrally located with respect to the coil by means or' bushings 126 which pass through diametricollj opposite holes in seid discs after the discs 113 have been 4placed on the bushings With spaces between them and the laminated discs 1211 for the introduction of bracket ends 111 and 112. The brackets 109 and 11G-having beenessenibled onv the base 106, the coil assembly is lowered The ends into posiuion on the brackets, the bracket @ids 119 being inserted in e space between dif4 M3, and bracket ends Lili. be np; inserted in 5 ti f1 spares between the dises U3. lfnshings eooperuio viii; reresses lleio the bracket omis und iocnie the coil in proper posiiion with respeob io iin?. iilrzickets "with iioi: 11G im.. i eenirziiiy of rofesses @1i-i..
