Abstract : Several techniques for reinforcing the moving coils of the 100 degree meters to prevent distortion during the ruggedization tests were evaluated. Satisfactory results were obtained on a large number of meters. Ruggedization tests were performed on 180 degree and 250 degree meters. It was concluded that ruggedized taut-band suspension meters, when fabricated and constructed in accordance with the principles established previously, can withstand the severe requirements of vibration, tumbling, and high shock without exhibiting mechanical damage.
