Continuous generator of electric current; it is used especially on bicycles for lighting.
Fixed electromagnet made up of an iron bar and coils; when exposed to an excitation current, it creates a magnetic field.
Conductive plates that are insulated from each other and connected to the field coil; they collect and rectify the induced alternating current.
Cylindrical part that transmits a rotational motion to the dynamo’s armature.
Metal casing that houses the magnetic field.
Device with blades that circulates air to cool the dynamo.
Moving part of the dynamo that is made up of a coil, which produces an electric current as it rotates inside the field.
Conductive wire that is rolled around the armature cylinder, which rotates in the magnetic field produced by the inductor to create an electric current.
Conductor that rubs against the commutator plates and transmits the continuous current produced by the dynamo to an exterior circuit.
