EXAMPLE

There are 144 possible interval method wirings for a 6-contact rotor, based on 36 rotations of both the whole rotor or one side of the rotor, starting from the four sequences: (1,2,4,6,3,5), (1,2,5,6,3,4), (1,4,3,2,6,5) and (1,6,3,5,4,2), having respectively the patterns of intervals (0,0,1,2,4,5), (0,0,2,5,1,4), (0,2,0,4,1,5) and (0,4,0,1,5,2)
