Here and There at Tufts

Doane, Lewis


Electrical Laboratories


On the first floor are recitation rooms, offices for instructors, the room for surveying instruments, the photometer room and the electrical laboratories. The elementary electrical laboratory, shown in the cut, is fitted for Wheatstone bridge work and the simpler kinds of electrical testing. The advanced laboratory is devoted largely to alternating current work and contains lamp banks, a general collection of testing instruments, eight modern oil insulated transformers, and two testing transformers, one wound for ten thousand volts, the other for fifty thousand volts. The two testing transformers are the products of Senior theses and have proved to be of great value in the testing of insulation. For several thousand dollars' worth of our electrical apparatus and machinery we are indebted to our distinguished graduate and Trustee, Dr. F. S. Pearson, of the Class of 1883.
