Abstract : Results of design investigations and performance tests are presented for an experimental mechanical interval timer. This unit was designed to provide one output, with an accuracy of =0.2 sec, selected from six possible timing intervals between 40 and 120 sec by a one-knob control. It is an all-mechanical system with a volume of approximately 6 cu in. The models performed within specifications, and test results indicate that the desired accuracy can be achieved in a production timer of this type. (Author)
