How to use "Four bits" in context?
In 1894, a Frenchman by the name of Charpentier published a paper called "On a New Method of Indicating Power in Electric Machines." In that paper, Charpentier proposed the use of a number system to indicate power levels in electric machines. His system consisted of using four bits to indicate the power level on an electric machine, with "0" representing no power, "1" representing low power, "2" representing medium power, and "3" representing high power.
