The 11 E is a simple, but electrical machine. Usually motor speed is controlled via a centrifugal switch on the motor shaft. Here a centrifugal brake is used.
Also different from most electrically driven machines is that for subtraction the motor is electrically reversed in stead of a gear system being used for this purpose.
Some sources state that it was produced until 1955, but in Büromaschinen Lexikon it is mentioned until 1961/1962.
