Front view of a 3,600 r.p.m. synchronous Rotary Gap.  Note the double stationary electrode design.  This gap was designed and manufactured by Tesla Technology Research, in 1979. The 60 Hz A.C. input capacity is rated at 10 KW.  The dwell time (mechanical) for each commutation is approximately 100 usecs. The drive motor may be configured for either 50/60 Hz. and 120/240 or 208 volt input and is a NEMA-56 class 1/2 h.p. unit.
