INDUCTIVE DEVICE Filed June 4, 1954 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 INDUCTIVE DEVICE Appiication June 4, 1954, Serial No. 434,526

16 Claims. (Cl. 336-98) This invention relates to inductive devices such as reactors for use with uorescent lamps, and more particularly to core and coil assemblies for small inductive devices.

Arc discharge devices, 4such as fluorescent lamps, require a 4ballasting device in order to limit the current flow after the device has fired. Reactors are commonly used to perform the ballasting function and conventionally comprise a core formed of a plurality o-f relatively thin laminado-ns of magnetic material with a coil mounted thereon. Cnc form of reactor frequently used with low wattage fluorescent lamps comprises two stacks of E- shaped laminations with the legs of each stack respectively abutting and with a coil mounted on the center leg. ln the design of such a core and coil assembly it is necessary that the iaminations be clamped in order to maintain the requisite air gap and to prevent noise, and it is also necessary to provide means for mounting the device. It is further desirable that the device be simple, economical, and lend itself to manufacture with automatic machinery.

A reactor which satisfies these requirements is shown and described in U. S. Patent 2,680,2l9-Gould, granted June l, 1954, upon an application filed May 16, 1952, and assigned to the assignee of the present application. This application discloses a reactor comprising two stacks of E-shaped laminations with their legs respectively abutting and with the coil mounted on the center leg. A

ted States Patent O single clamping and mounting member not only provides for tightly clamping the laminations to maintain the air gap and to prevent noise, but also provides for mounting the device.

In addition to the foregoing requirements, there are certain applications where the Underwriters Laboratories require a completely enclosed construction, i. e. a construction having the coil enclosed in a metallic case. With such a totally enclosed construction, it is nevertheless desirable that the core be exposed on its two ends to facilitate adjustment after assembly in order to obtain the desired electrical characteristics. Furthermore, since the two stacks of laminations are formed from sheets of magnetic steel which may not have uniform thickness, it is possible that one stack may be `slightly thicker than the other and it is therefore further desirable that the laminations be tightly clamped regardless of variations in stack height. ln addition, these reactors are customarily impregnated with a suitable material, such as varnish, after assembly and it is therefore desirable to provide means for draining excess impregnating material during the treating process. lt is of course still a basic requirement that such a device be simple, economical, and lend itself to manufacture with automatic machinery.

lt is therefore an object of this invention to provide an inductive device including the desirable features set forth above.

Further objects and advantages of this invention will become apparent by reference lto the following description and the accompanying drawing, and the features of novelty which characterize this invention will be pointed out with particularity in the claims annexed to and forming a part of this specification.

This invention in its broadest aspects provides an inductive device comprising a core having a pair of abutting stacks of laminations with a coil positioned on the core. A base member is provided having portions respectively supporting the bottom surface of the core and a cover member is provided for enclosing the upper side of the core. One of the members has side portions respectively extending along the sides of the'core and these side portions respectively engage the other member thereby securing the cover member to the core and tightly clamping the laminations. Portions may be formed from the base member to enclose the =bottom side of the coil and one of the members may be initially longitudinally bowed in order to accommodate variations in height of the individual stacks of laminations.

Referring now to Figs. l to 6 of 'the drawing, the reactor 1 comprises a core member 2 formed of two E- shaped stacks 3 and 4 of relatively thin laminations of magnetic material, The inner and outer legs of the E-shaped stacks of laminations 3 and 4 are arranged in abutting relationship, as best seen in Figs. 2 and 3, and a suitable coil 5 is arranged on the center legs 6 and 7 of stacks 3 and 4 respectively between the outer legs or yoke portions of the core. Center legs 6 and 7 may have an air gap therebetween if desired in order to secure the desired reactance. While a core formed of two abutting E-shaped stocks of laminations has been shown, it will be readily understood that this is by way of illustration only and that other core and coil configurations may be utilized in accordance with this invention.

In order to support and clamp the core 2 and to enclose the coil 5, the arrangement now to be described is provided. A base member 8 is provided havingv a center section 9 and side sections 1i) and 11 formed at right angles thereto on either' side thereof. Side sections 16 and 11 of base 8 respectively have core supporting portions 12 and 13 extending outwardly therefrom. As will best be seen in Figs. 5 and 6, the bottom surface 11i of core Z is supported by portions 12 and 13 of base 8. Core supporting portions 12 and 13 of base 8 respectively have extension portions 15 and 16 extending upwardly therefrom adjacent the sides 17 and 18 of core 2 respectively. Extension portions 15 and 16 are respectively provided with tabs 19 and 2e on their upper edges for a purpose to be hereinafter described.

Center section 9 of base 8 has two coil enclosing portions 21 and 22 respectively formed therefrom on either side of coil 5 and extending toward bottom surface 14 of core 2 in order to enclose the bottom sidev of the coil, i. e. that portion of coil 5 extending beyond bottom surface 14 of core 2. As shown in Figs. 2 and 6, a sheet of Patented Apr. 10, 1956y insulating material 23 may be placed between upwardly extending portions 21 and 22 if desired. Center section 9 of base S is also provided with mounting portions 24 and 25 formed at either end beyond coil enclosing portions 2l and 22. Mounting portions 2d and 2:5 are joined respectively to side sections 16 and 1li. and are provided with suitable openings 26 for mounting the reactor l. Since it may be desirable to mount the reactor from its side rather than from its base, suitable mounting port-ions 27 may be formed at either end of one or both of the extension portions, as shown in lig. 2. The corners ci one of the coil enclosing portions 2i or 2.2 may be rccessed such as by being folded down or cut away, as at 2d to accommodate the external leads 29 of coil 5, as shown in Figs. 2 and 5.

In order to enclose the upper side of that side of coil 5 which projects above the upper sriace E@ of core 2, a cover member 3l is provided having a suitabic indentation 32 formed therein for enclosing the pper side of the coil. As best seen in Fig. 4, cover member 3i is initially longitudinally bowed for the reason now to be described. As will be best seen in Fig. 2, cover member 31 is positioned with its four corners initially abutting the upper surface 3i) of core 2 adjacent the corners thereof. A pair of spaced apart initially downwardly inclined tabs 33 and 3d are provided on. each side of cover member 3l and respectively engage lamination stacks ft and lt is thus seen that-by virtue of the initially bowed configuration of cover member 3l and initially downwardly inclined tabs 33 and 3d, cover member 3l. will engage the upper surface 35i of core 2 at eight points even though one of the stacks ol' laminations, for example, stack 3, is slightly thicker than or has one more lamination than stack 4. This eight point engagement is secured by delection of tabs 33 and 3d, as the case may be, to conform the height of. lamination stacks 3 and The clamping action is accomplished by the provision of upwardly extending flanges 35 and 36 formed on each side of cover member 3l. and respectively on either side of tabs 33 and 34. The upper edges of ilanges 35 and 3d are curved, as seen in Fig. 2 for the purpose now to be described. Tabs is? and 2d on extension portions l5 and le of base member 8 are preferably respectively folded over flanges 3S and 3d of cover member 3i as seen in Figs. l, 5 and 6. lt will be readily apparent that extension portions i5 and lo may be secured to ilang'es 35 and 3e by other means, for example by welding or riveting.

l t will now be seen that a 'folding over of tabs 19 and 2i) to engage flanges 35 and 3o oi" cover member 3i tightly clamps cover member 31 to the upper surface Sli of core 2, tightly clamps the entire corc Z to 'oase member it, and further tightly clamps the laminations ot core T. together. Assuming that one of the stacks of laminations is thicker than the other, the clamping of cover member El by means ot' tabs i9 and 2d will cause one set of the tabs 33 or 34 to be detlected or bent upwardly to a greater degree than the other thereby to accommodate the difference in thickness of the two stacks and still retain the eight point contact. Since a ditlerence in thickness of the two stacks will result in the cover member 3l being .slightly tilted with respect to the plane of the base member the curved upper edges of the flanges 35 and 3d permit the tabs l@ and 2d to be properly located so that they tightly engage the flanges and in turn tightly clamp the cover member 3l against Athe upper surface 3i) of core 2. it will be readily seen that without the provision of the initially bowed configuration of cover member 3i and the downwardly inclined tabs 53 and 34, an eight point contact with the upper surface of the core would be dilicult to secure unless the two core stacks were of exactly the same height. it will further be readily apparent that the curved conguration ol the upper edges of anges 3S and 3d permit the cover member 3l to-be slightly tilted with respect to the plane of the base member and yet still be firmly engaged by the tabs 19 and 2i) of base member extensions l5 d and 16. Indentations 37 may be formed in one end of cover member 31 dening with upper surface Sli of core 2 passages communicating with the coil S. These passages serve to admit impregnating material to the coil S, to allow the air displaced thereby to escape, and to drain oit excess impregnating material during the impregnating treatment.

Referring now to Figs. 7, 8 and 9, there is shown an inductive device, generally identified as 318, which may be either a reactor or a transformer. The device 38 includes a core member 39 formed of a stack of relatively thin laminations of magnetic material. Core 39 may be formed in a manner similar' to the core member 2 of Figs. l to 6 inclusive, i. e., having two abutting E-shaped stacks of laminations.

In order to support and clamp the core 39 and to enclose the associated coil (not shown), a base member dii is provided having a center section 4i and side sections d2 and 413 formed at right angles thereto on either side thereof. Side sections 42 and 43 respectively have core supporting portions 44 and i5 extending outwardly therefrom. As will best be seen in Fig. 9, the upper surface of base member di) ldelined by core supporting portions 44 and d, is longitudinally bowed for the purpose to be hereinafter' more fully described. Core supporting portions ridaud 45 are respectively divided into two spacedapart segments respectively having downwardly extending flanges 46 and 47 formed thereon. A pair of spaced-apart initially upwardly inclined tabs 48 and 49 are formed on each of the side portions 42 and 43, intermediate iianges 46 and 47.

As best seen in Figs. 7 and 8, the bottom surface 5l? of core 39 is supported by portions ad and a5 of base member et). As in the embodiment of Figs. l to 6 inclusive, center section 4i of base member di) has two coil enclosing portions 5l and 52 formed therefrom on either side of the coil and extending toward bottom snriace 56 of core 39 in order to enclose the bottom side of the coil. Center section 41 of base member lili is also provided with mounting portions 53 and 54 formed at either end thereof beyond coil enclosing portions 5l and 532. Mounting portions 53 and 54 are joined respectively by side sections 42 and 43 and are provided with suitable openings 55 for mounting the device.

In order to enclose the upper side of the coil, a cover member 5d is provided having a suitable indentation 57 Vtermed therein for enclosing the upper side of the coil. Cover member 56 is provided with extension portions 53 and 59 formed on either side thereof extending along the sides of core 39. Extension portions 5% and 59 oi cover member 56 have tabs dil formed thereon respectively folded over flanges 46 and 47 of base member 3i?. lndentations 6l may be formed in the ends ot cover member 56 defining with upper surface 62 of core member 39 passages communicating with the coil for admitting impregnating material to the coil, allowing the air displaced thereby to escape, and for draining ot excess impregnating material during the impregnating treatment.

It will now be readily seen that with. core 345 formed of two abutting E-shaped stacks of laminations, of the type shown in Fig, 2, and by virtue of the initially bowed conguration of base member itl and the initialiy upwardly inclined tabs 48 and (i9, base member dil will engage the bottom surface 5l) of core member 39 at eight points even though. one of the stacks ot laminations is slightly higher than the other stack. This eight point engagement is secured by deflection of tabs 4t? or dit, as the case may be, to conform to the height of the lamination stacks. In this embodiment, the clamping action is accomplished by the folding over of tabs dll to engage flanges 46 and 47 of base member 40 thus tightly clamping cover member 56 to the upper surface 62 of core 39, tightly clamping the entire core 39 to base member 40, and further tightly vclamping the laminations of core 39 together. Here again, flanges 46 and 47 are curved, as seen inv Figs. 7 and 9, to accommodate slight tilting of core 39 with respect to base 40. It will be further readily apparent that mounting portions similar to portion 27 of the embodiment of Figs. l to 6 inclusive may be formed on extension portions 58 and S9 of cover member 56 if desired.

It will now be readily seen that this improved reactive device requires only two parts to clamp and mount the core and also to encase the coil. It will be further readily seen that these parts are simple and lend themselves to fabrication and assembly on automatic machinery. While this improved construction has been shown in connection with a reactor, it will be readily apparent that it is equally applicable to other inductive devices such as transformers or autotransformers.

While we have shown and described a particular embodiment of this invention, further modifications and im provements will occur to those skilled in the art. We desire that it be understood therefore that this invention is not limited to the particular forms shown and we intend in the appended claims to cover all modifications which do not depart from the spirit and scope of this invention.
