It is commonly known to provide permanent ‘

The small block (2 is pressed ?rmly to the one
narrow side of the pole a2 by a bail-shaped clamp

caused in the indications of electricity meters by
altering the torque or brake moment in such a
way that the rotations of the driving disk of the
meters invariably remain proportional to the load.
For this purpose material sensitive to changes of
temperature has been employed which, for in
