An academic-focused article for BTH Motor Engineering department on "selsyns", devices that link electronics between machines.

"The use of selsyns as an electrical link between two or more machines and indicating their relative positions, is well known. These selsyns are usually small and of high accuracy. There have however, grown up in industry many other applications of selsyns which are not so well known - applications of increased size and in which selsyns are used as a convenient equivalent of a mechanical shaft transmitting considerable torque. Some of these use power selsyns and other servo-selsyns (power amplifier selsyns) and are described in the following article." - abstract
