The appliances and connections shall be such as will permit the operation of any dynamo on any circuit or number of circuits, and the cutting in or out of any dynamo or circuit with certainty and rapidity without in any manner affecting the operation of other dynamos or circuits. (They shall also be arranged in such manner as to render it possible to connect two dynamos in parallel by an arrangement of switches or combination of circuits.)

54. Dynamo(8). (See Note: p. 43, sec. 21.)

A dynamo capacity of, as nearly as possible, - kilowatts. (The number of dynamos shall not be less than — , nor more than — .)

The dynamo (s) shall be of the latest and most efficient pattern; shall be mounted upon a base provided with an adjustable belt tightener so that the belt may be tightened while in operation; capable of operating under full load for - consecutive hours without increasing the temperature of any part, especially the armature, fields, and commutator, to such a degree as to endanger the insula

tion or decrease the efficiency of operation; shall not spark appreciably with proper care of the commutator and adjustment of the brushes, nor under considerable variation of the load; shall have an insulation resistance of not less than - ohms between all parts insulated from each other; shall be adapted to operate at such speed as will allow the use of high-speed, automatic cut-off engines belted direct; shall be provided with efficient oiling devices; the armature shall be balanced electrically and mechanically so that there will be no tendency to spring the shaft, or to draw the armature toward either bearing so as to cause excessive friction and heating, and no vibration; all contacts, binding posts, brushes, etc., having considerable differences of potential between them shall be so placed and protected that the danger of receiving a shock is the least possible; armature conductors shall be so securely attached to the armature as to preclude any possibility of their being
