Siphon Recorder

A recording apparatus in which the inked marks are made on a strip of paper, the ink being supplied by a siphon terminating in a capillary orifice.

In the cut N S represents the poles of a powerful electro-magnet. A rectangular coil bb of wire is suspended between the coils. A stationary iron core a intensifies the field. The suspension wire f f 1 has its tension adjusted at h. This wire acts as conductor for the current.

The current is sent in one or the other direction or is cut off in practice to produce the desired oscillations of the coil b b. A glass siphon n l works upon a vertical axis l. One end l is immersed in an ink well m. Its longer end n touches a riband of paper o o. The thread k attached to one side of the coil pulls the siphon back and forth according to the direction of current going through the electro-magnet cores. A spiral spring adjusted by a hand-screw controls the siphon. In operation the siphon is drawn back and forth producing a zigzag line. The upward marks represent dots, the downward ones dashes. Thus the Telegraphic Code can be transmitted on it. To cause the ink to issue properly, electrification by a static machine has been used, when the stylus does not actually touch the paper, but the ink is ejected in a series of dots.
