An Investigation of Speed Variations in a Magnetic Tape Recorder, with the Aid of Electro-Mechanical Analogies
The electrical analog of a tape transport is derived, as well as means for converting mechanical values to and fron analogous electrical values. The values of the mechanical elements are determined, in some cases with the aid of their electrical analogs. The response of the mechanical system is analyzed through its electrical analog, and recommendations are made for improving the transport design.
