GRIMSDELL DIX GALVANOMETER, 1900's

Astatic galvanometer made by Grimsdell Dix Acton London. An Astatic type has two needles in parallel mounted in opposite direction, to defeat the effect of the earth's field.

Your comments:

  • To me this one looks like an Astatic Galvanometer; not a tangent one.

    There is a second needle on this instrument, but it is has no compass point, it also points to the north.
