Definitions for magnetic continuity
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word magnetic continuity
The Standard Electrical Dictionary
The completeness of a magnetic circuit, as when the armature of a horseshoe magnet is in contact with both poles. It is an attribute of a paramagnetic substance only and is identical for permanent magnets or for electro-magnets. An air space intervening between armature and magnet poles, or a space filled with any diamagnetic substance prevents continuity, although the lines of force to some extent still find their way around. The leakage is increased by discontinuity.
