PATENT OEEICE INDUCTION-COIL.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N0.'78'7,658, dated April 18, 1905.

Application led June 13, 1904. Serial No. 212,284. i

To NIUA l//to'm/ it muy concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN A. BAKER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Seguin, in the county of Guadalupe and State of Texas, have invented a certain new and useful lmprovement in Induction-Coils, ot' which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to induction coils, and has for its object to provide an improved device of this character wherein the dead or inactive Sections ot' wire are reduced to a,

minimum.

It is furthermore designed to utilize all available lines of force, thus obtaining the highest possible inductive efliciency from a given primary current without correspondingly increasing the resistance.

lt is well known that in induction-coils of the ordinary winding each additional layer oi' secondary wire intercepts lines of decreased force, while adding very greatly to the resistance of the secondary circuit. In coils designed to produce an induced current of very high potential so great is the resistance that a secondary current can only be induced by a positive make or break in the primary circuit. Where an interrupter can be used to make and break the primary circuit, this disadvantage is in some measure obviated. When, however, as in telephone construction, no make or break is possible, Ybut where the secondary current must be induced solely by variations in the strength of the primary current, the production of a secondary current of very high potentiality has been heretofore found to be practically impossible, and the radius of telephonie communication is accordingly limited.

ln the present invention the primary winding consists of a broad strip of metal of low resistance wound in successive convolutions Aupon a core with the respective convolutions diameter. Upon either side of said insulating-disks is placed another similar insulating-disk, with a space between tlie first and second disks. Within the space so formed is wound the insulated secondary wire.

The number of coils ot' primary and secondary windings may be increased indefinitely; but the secondary circuit should preferably contain one more coil than the pri,- mary and occupy the ends ot' the completed coil.

It is well known that the field ot' maximum magnetic intensity produced by a primary coil is in the form ol' an ellipse, as shown by dotted lines in Fig. 7. That the secondary windings may occupy only such field of maximum Jforce the coils occupying the two eX- tremes are tapered and the end insulatingdisks made correspondingly smaller than the intermediate disks. The core is extended bcyond each end ot' the coil for the purpose ot' enabling the lines of force near the end ol the ellipse to be utilized.

With these and other objects in view the present invention consists in the combination and arrangement oil parts, as will be hereinafter more fully described, shown in the accompanyingdrawings, and particularly pointed out in the appended claims, it being understood that changes in the form, proportion, size, and minor details may be made within the scopo of the claims without dcparting from thc spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of my invention.

ln the accompanying drawings, Figurel isa diagrammatic view oi an induction-coil oi' the present invention, showing a plurality of both primary and secondary windings. Fig. 2 is an end view, and Fig. 3 is a side elevation, of the primary coil, illustrating the manner of winding and the manner of making' connection with the inner terminal. Fig. i is a diagrammatic view illustrating the primary and secondary coils, each connected in series. Fig. 5' is a similar view illustrating the coils connected, respectively, in multiple. Fig. 6 is an enlarged detail end view of the core composed oi a soft-iron casing iilled with tine soft-iron wires. Fig. 7 is a diagrammatic view oi' an induction-coil ofthe simplest form embodying a single primary coil.

a casing' l oi' soft iron about a plurality of longitudinally-disposed line soft-iron wires 2.

Upon the core so formed are placed a plul rality of disks 3, composed ot' mica or any sultable insulating material. The disks are properly spaced, and in the middle space is y wound a strip 4 of material of low electrical resistance, approximating in width the distance between the insulating-disks. Between each of the several convolutions of the conductor 4 is disposed a strip of insulating material 5 and the winding of the conductor and insulator continued until the disk is formed, as shown in Fig. 2, approximating' in size insulating-disks 3. The inner terminal ot' the conductor 4 is turned at the core at right angles thereto, as shown at 6, for the purpose of making connection with a source of electrical energy. Between the upstanding inner terminal 6 and the coil is disposed insulation 7. Within each alternate space between the disks 3 is wound a similar strip 4, which when electrically connected constitutes the primary winding. l/Vithin the spaces between the primary coils is wound the usual insulated wire used in secondary winding. The number of secondary coils exceeds the number of primary coils by one, thus occupying the extremes oi' the completed coil.

The end insulating-disks 8 are made smaller in diameter than the disks 3, and the end secondary coils are tapered to correspond, thus being confined within the tield of maximum magnetic intensity.

The core l is extended at each end beyond the extreme secondary coils, thus interceptingl the lines of magnetic force lying within the ends of the magnetic ellipse.

lt is evident that both the primary and secondary coils may be connected in series, as shown at Fig. 4, or in multiple, as shown in Fig. 5; but as this coil is designed to produce induced currents of very high potential and as the resistance oi' the secondary circuit has been reduced to a minimum l prefer to connect them in series.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as novel, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
