synchro transmitter

synchro transmitter

[′siŋ·krō tranz′mid·ər]
(electricity)
A synchro that provides voltages related to the angular position of its rotor; when its two input leads are excited by an alternating-current voltage, the magnitudes and polarities of the voltages at the three output leads define the rotor position. Also known as selsyn generator; selsyn transmitter; synchro generator; transmitter; transmitter synchro.
