  1. Galvanometer, Aperiodic

    A galvanometer whose needle is damped (see Damping) as, for instance, by the proximity of a plate of metal, by an air vane or otherwise, so that it reaches its reading with hardly any oscillation. A very light needle and a strong magnetic field also conduce to vibrations of short period dying out very quickly. Such galvanometers are termed "dead-beat." No instrument is absolutely dead-beat, only relatively so.
