Abstract

This article relates to a voice coil drive for the pen of a strip chart recorder. More specifically, it relates to a mechanism for converting the short linear travel obtained from a voice coil into a 60 degrees arc circular motion. Still more specifically, it relates to a mechanism which incorporates a very simple device for positional feedback.
