Explanation:
I think "sensor" rather than "receiver", but it depends on context.

In response to Tony's valid point, see my comment below. However, it just as possible that the permanent magnet fits into a cylindrical "récepteur" to provide the field necessary to activate a separate sensor such as proximity switch or rev counter.

neutral  Tony M: Additional context now makes it clear!

  -> I had a speed sensor on my old bike which used a permanent magnet to give a magnetic bias to a coil. Passing teeth altered the flux density and hence the voltage...

neutral  Charles Hawtrey: Could you call a compass needle a "recepteur"? It's certainly a sensor... Tricky though, here, when he can't tell us the main idea behind the patent. I sympathise.
