Abstract

Typewriters often include various magnetic actuators that operate in an open-loop mode, i.e., their responses are not monitored, but, rather, are assumed to occur within an allotted time period. The detector circuit described below permits convenient evaluation of actuator response to assure that operating time specifications are met.
