What’s a Gerber Variable Scale?
1/7/2019

< Previous   Image 2 of 2   

In this image, from the Gerber Scale manual, we see curve 'a' drown on paper. Next, the Gerber Scale will plot a family of curves with values of 0.2a, 0.4a, 0.6a, 0.8a, and the original 1.0a on top. This is done by placing the Gerber Variable Scale along any point 'x' parallel to the ordinate with the 0 coil at y=o, and the 100 coil at curve 'a'. Then mark off points at 20, 40, 60, and 80 coils. Move the instrument to other stations 'x' and repeat the procedure. Finally draw a curve through equal % points. Note: a graph grid is not used in these calculations and is completely unnecessary.
