MASS SPECTROSCOPE

An instrument used for determining the masses of atoms or molecules, in which a beam of ions is sent through a combination of electric and magnetic fields so arranged that the ions are deflected according to their masses.

MAGNETIC FIELD SENSOR

A proximity sensor that uses a combination of a reed switch and a magnet to detect the presence of a magnetic field.

MACHINE

LOW-FREQUENCY IMPEDANCE CORRECTOR

Electric network designed to be connected to a basic network, or to a basic network and a building-out network, so that the combination will simulate, at low frequencies, the sending-end impedance, including dissipation, of a line.

LOUDNESS CONTROL

[ENG ACOUS] A combination volume and tone control that boosts bass frequencies when the control is set for low volume, to compensate automatically for the reduced response of the ear to low frequencies at low volcapacity.

LIQUEFIER

Equipment or system used to liquefy gases; usually employs a combination of compression, heat exchange, and expansion operations.

JUNCTION FILTER

A combination of a high-pass and a low-pass filter that is used to separate frequency bands for transmission over separate paths.
