Abstract

Support elements for mounting magnetic cores in an orderly array are provided. The basic element consists of an elongated, generally channel shaped bar 10 having a pair of transversely extending ears 11 at one end and corresponding notches 12 at the other end. The bar is adapted to receive, for example, the multi-apertured cores C, in its channel, and has positioning bosses 13 to insure accurate spacing of the cores. A slot 14 is provided in the bottom of the channel to permit wires to be threaded through the cores and the bar as required. The cores are sealed in place by deforming the upper edges of the channel to provide lips overlapping the cores (cross sectional drawing).

Magnetic Core Support

Support elements for mounting magnetic cores in an orderly array are provided. The basic element consists of an elongated, generally channel shaped bar 10 having a pair of transversely extending ears 11 at one end and corresponding notches 12 at the other end. The bar is adapted to receive, for example, the multi-apertured cores C, in its channel, and has positioning bosses 13 to insure accurate spacing of the cores. A slot 14 is provided in the bottom of the channel to permit wires to be threaded through the cores and the bar as required. The cores are sealed in place by deforming the upper edges of the channel to provide lips overlapping the cores (cross sectional drawing).

The supports are arranged in pairs, the supports of each pair being placed back to back with their ends reversed so that the ears 11 of one are at the top and the ears 11 of the other are at the bottom (perspective drawing). Thus, the cores in one support are staggered with respect to those in the other. Rivets 15 secure the two supports together and also fix terminal strips 16 to the opposite ends. The staggered line of cores in each pair of supports form a single row of a coordinate array. A row coil 17 wound, for example, as shown in the broken away portion of the elevation, is provided in each pair of supports. The terminals 16 provide external connections to this coil.

Several pairs of supports are fixed together to form an array by inserting the notches 12 of each...
