the induction motor, is attached to the induction motor shaft. It is observed through another disc having an equal number of sector-shaped slits and carried on the shaft of small self-starting synchronous motor, in turn fitted with a revolution counter which can be thrown in and out of gear at will.
If n = number of passages of the sectors, then
where ns = number of sectors, and
nr = number of revolutions recorded by the counter during the interval of observation.
For large values of slip the observations can be simplified by using only one sector; then
n = slip in revolutions.
With a synchronous light source to illuminate the target on the induction-motor shaft,the synchronous motor is no longer necessary. An arc lamp connected across the A.C. supply may be used, but the carbons must be readjusted from time to time. A neon lamp makes a satisfactory source of light when the general illumination is not too bright.
