Caption: Meritens magneto generator. Historical illustration of a magneto generator invented by French engineer Auguste de Meritens (1834-1898). A magneto uses permanent magnets to generate electricity. Meritens improved on earlier magneto designs by Nollet, replacing rotor coils with an armature where the windings were on a segmented iron core. Meritens patented his invention in 1878. Artwork from 'Electricite' (1911) by Max de Nansouty, part of the 'Les merveilles de la science' series of 1867-1891 by Louis Figuier.
