ELECTRIC MACHINES NOT OTHERWISE PROVIDED FOR
NOTE
-
This subclass covers:

- electrostatic generators, motors, clutches, or holding
devices;
- other non-dynamo-electric generators or motors;
- holding or levitation devices using magnetic attraction
or repulsion;
- arrangements for starting, regulating, braking, or otherwise
controlling such machines unless in conjoint operation with
a second machine.

Specific provision for generators, motors, or other means for converting between electric and other forms of energy also exists in other subclasses, e.g. in subclasses H01L, H01M, H02K, H04R.
