TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 GENERAL INFORMATION GLOSSARY OF ELECTRONIC TERMS Ampere:    The  practical  unit  of  electrical  current;  the  current produced by one volt acting through a resistance of one ohm. Amplifier:    An  electrical  device  containing  transistors,  diodes and resistors used for controlling current flow. Arc-Over:    The  result  of  electrical  current  passage  through other than a designated route. Biasing Resistor:  Resistor used to develop a voltage drop and provide transistor operation at other than ground level. Bypass Resistor:  Resistor used to provide fixed current path around some circuit element. Capacitor   or   Condenser:      Device   used   to   store   electrical energy. Diode:  A small wafer-like electrical device that allows current to pass through itself in one direction only. Epoxy:        Bonding    material    used    for    mounting,    joining, reinforcing or insulating electrical components. Feed-Back  Resistor:     A   resistor   through   which   part   of   the output  current  of  a  device  passes  back  to  the  input  of the device to stabilize current flow. Heat Sink:    Electronic  component  mounting  plate  which  also serves to dissipate heat from components. Induced:    Made  or  caused  to  be  as  indirect  voltage  in  coil caused by the intermittent current flow through the coil primary  windings  inducing  a  voltage  in  the  secondary windings. Infinite:  Greater than an assignable quantity-as applied to the reading of an ohmmeter. Ohm:    Electrical  unit  of  resistance  of  a  circuit  in  which  a potential  difference  of  one  volt  produces  a  current  of one ampere. Ohmmeter:  Instrument for measuring resistance. Panelboard:  Mounting board for electrical components. Pole Piece:  Stationary and rotating parts of distributor which carry magnetic pulse used to trigger the amplifier. Printed Circuit:  Conductive paths applied to a nonconductive material     to     eliminate     loose     wires     and     condense package size. Relay:  Device to open or close circuits and controlled from a remote  point.  Resistor:  A  device  used  to  limit  the  flow of current to a specified value. Silicone  Grease:    A  special  lubricant  having  the  quality  of good heating or cooling conductivity. Solenoid:      A   tubular   coil   for   producing   magnetic   field   and changing electrical energy to motion. Timer Core:  Rotating pole piece of magnetic pulse distributor. Transistor:    An  electrical  device  which  acts  as  a  switch  to control a circuit.  It has no moving parts. Trigger Transistor:  Transistor serving as an off or on switch to replace contact points. Volt:  The unit of electromotive force; that electromotive force, which,   if   steadily   applied   to   a   conductor   having   a resistance  of  one  ohm,  will  produce  a  current  of  one ampere. Watt:  A unit of electrical power or activity equal to the rate of work  represented  by  a  current  of  one  ampere  under  a pressure of one volt, a volt-ampere. One horsepower is approximately equal to 746 watts. CTS-2128-L  Page 13 PRINTED IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
