Armature, Machine of insulated wire together with the iron armature core, on or around which the coils are wound. That part of a dynamo-electric machine in which the differences of potential which cause the useful currents are generated. Generally, that portion of a dynamo-electric machine which is revolved between the pole pieces of the field magnets. The armature of a dynamo-electric machine usually consists of a series of coils of insulated wire or conductors, wrapped around or grouped a central core of iron.
