The great Sulzer-BBC machine (1901) | Musée Electropolis

Highlight of the collection, the great Sulzer-BBC machine is at the origin of the museum's creation: it provided electrical power to the D.M.C (Dolfus, Mieg and Co) spinning mills of Mulhouse from 1901 to 1953... It is powered by a Sulzer steam machine, manufactured in Winthertur (Switzerland)... The wheel also acts as a flywheel: its mass stabilizes the machine's movement... It provides alternative current by way of its 72 electromagnets, which were powered by direct current from a direct current generator called an exciter.
