German term or phrase: Ankerhebel
In the context of a patent describing electromagnetic valve opening and closing devices: "Bei dem eingangs erwähnten, bekannten System mit ANKERHEBEL wird der Drehstab zugleich als Lagerstelle für den Ankerhebel verwendet."
Can anyone help with the usual technical translation of the term "Ankerhebel" with respect to electromagnet armatures.

Thanks very much!

armature lever
Explanation:
Anker m (el. Masch., Rel.)
armature n
[Siemens]

The printing apparatus is placed upon a circular iron base in the centre of the table. In front of it is placed a dial containing the letters of the alphabet, arranged in a circle and provided with an index or pointer, mounted upon a horizontal shaft. This shaft also carries a type wheel, with the letters of the alphabet engraved upon the type wheel and dial. An electro-magnet beneath the base is provided with an armature, attached to a vibrating lever, the latter armed with pawls or clicks, so arranged in relation to the scape-wheel that every time the electro-magnet attracts its armature, the wheel is made to revolve a distance of one tooth, and the type wheel and index upon the same shaft a distance of one letter. At the extreme right of the circular base, and partly beneath it, as seen in the engraving, is placed a second electromagnet, whose armature lever passes in a horizontal direction below the type wheel. Directly underneath the type wheel an india-rubber pad is fixed upon the lever, by means of which an impression of the letter which is opposite it upon the type wheel may be taken in the manner hereafter to be described. This lever is also provided with a simple mechanical device for moving the paper forward the proper distance, as the impression of each successive character is imprinted upon it. This may be seen at the left of the printing apparatus. The type wheel is provided with a suitable inking roller, as shown in the engraving.

In the apparatus of the present invention a retaining-electromagnet acting upon a supplementary armature of the armature-lever of each relay is employed for this purpose and is connected in a local circuit having a short- circuiting shunt leading through an independent set of contacts operated by the armature of the other relay, which shunt thus brings its associated retaining-magnet into and out of action, as required.

The relay-magnet a should be of such character as to respond to a very weak current and yet be positive in its action. To insure retraction of its armature e' after the current has been established through the magnet f and interrupted by the inversion of the sensitive device e, a light rod k is supported in guides on the frame in position to be lifted by an extension k' of the armature-lever l and to raise slightly the armature e. As a feeble current may normally flow through the sensitive device and the relay-magnet a, which would be sufficient to hold though not draw the armature down, it is well to observe this precaution.
