Abstract : Electromechanical functional units of servomechanisms of the potentiometric type are at present finding ever greater utilization in the composition of analog computers and digital-analog computer systems. The main advantages of electromechanical units of servomechanisms are: high accuracy of multiplication of one magnitude by several others, including at low levels of input signals; a broad pass band on channels connected with wire potentiometers; possibility of simple receiving of angular magnitudes for utilization together with sensors of angle of turning; possibility of generating of the several nonlinear functions with simultaneous multiplication of each by another independent variable; possibility of automatic installation of constant coefficients accurate to four decimal places on instructions entering from the program devices of the computer; possibility of fulfillment of operations of storage of current values of variables and their permanent storage until the next time they are accessed; rapid and graphic recording of charts of functions; possibility of generating nonlinear functions with a large number of extrema.
