Sample text

The use of an earth return (strictly speaking, a ‘water return’) had been recorded since 1804 through the work of Giovanni [7], who sent a current through a wire supported on the masts of boats across Calais harbour, with a second wire terminating in a copper plate immersed in the water at either end [8]. Salvá’s invention was largely ignored by the European technological fraternity at the time, and it is not known whether the more successful and similar devices constructed by Sömmerring were inspired by Salvá’s work.

He was familiar with the relationship between current, movement of the needle and the length (resistance) of the controlling wire. His knowledge of Ohm’s law and the discussions he had in his meeting with the American scientist Joseph Henry during the latter’s visit to London in 1837 [17] enabled him to suggest methods of increasing the sensitivity of the process, principally by the use of many turns of fine wire in the coils surrounding the needles, and in an astatic operation for the signalling device which was eventually taken up by the railway.

Schilling used the sequence of movements of the disc produced by an incoming signal, in accordance with a pre-arranged binary code, to indicate the different letters of the alphabet. 1 In a more advanced version he used a sixneedle telegraph with a sending arrangement consisting of a keyboard, like that of a piano, having 16 keys in pairs of one black and one white key. 4. An additional galvanometer served as an alarm device so that when its needle was deflected it set in motion a clockwork mechanism which rang a bell, a method identical to that used in Sömmerring’s system.
