testing sets, etc., they should be distinctly specified as well as the make if a particular kind is preferred.)

There shall be provided with each dynamo one hand regulator for adjusting the pressure, made entirely of incombustible material; one ampere meter for indicating the current supplied by the dynamo and graduated to read amperes; one voltmeter or pressure indicator, which may remain constantly in circuit so as to indicate continuously the pressure at the point to which it is connected, and which shall be so constructed that the scale is plainly visible at a distance of at

least ;one brush jig for trimming the

brushes; and one insulating base frame provided with rails and a suitable device for shifting the position of the dynamo to alter the belt tension. There shall also

be provided for the installation

ground detector(s), which shall continuously indicate the insulation from the ground maintained on both sides throughout the system, and lighting arresters

of the type.

BwitSwo,0 (Note—In the case of compound dynamos operating in parallel the equalizing wire may often more conveniently be carried direct from dynamo to dynamo in which case this contractor should furnish and connect a suitable equalizing switch at each dynamo.) This contractor shall carry to the

switchboard location at all regulator

and main wires, leaving the ends coiled up neatly, properly tagged, and sufficiently long to make the necessary switchboard connections. All main wires shall have a

capacity of at least C. M. per ampere,

and no wire smaller than B. & S.

or B. W. G. shall be used. Regulator wires shall be covered with

insulation, and shall be

newal parts as it is advisable to keep on hand, adding hereto an itemized list of same.

(Note.—The object of this summary is to present in a concise, tabulated form, the essential data concerning the apparatus to be supplied, thus enabling the different bids to be easily and quickly compared. For complete plants a single form, systematically arranged, will be found extremely convenient both in making comparisons and in being able to see at a glance just what apparatus and appliances are called for, thus constituting a check on the specifications themselves.)

Each bidder shall fill out completely the following summary:

Number of dynamos . . .

Trade number or designation .

Rating in volts ....

Rating in amperes . . .

Shunt or compound . . .


Dimensions of pulleys . .

H. P. required to be delivered at the pulley at full load . . .

Switchboard and Appliances. This contractor shall furnish and erect the following apparatus and material:

(Note.—In plants of any considerable 2S-b^^ohm size the switchboard specification is an extremely important one. Its general characteristics will be determined by questions of purpose, economy, utility, available space, beauty, etc., but the details of material, method of wiring, attachment of instruments, location, number of switchboards, etc., require the most careful study. It may be advisable in one instance to have a single switchboard controlling everything from a single centre, in another to have a dynamo switchboard and a separate circuit switchboard, while in yet another to even divide the dynamo switchboard into two or more parts and to have several circuit switchboards. In determining the location of switchboards
