Traction is the complete mechanical system between batons and bells The carillon is a mechanical instrument. All transmissions from keyboard (baton) to bell clapper is entirely mechanical. The construction makes use of bell cranks and rustproof steel wiring connections. It is complicated to wire connect a complete carillon and to install cranks and springs so that:

    1. The intensity needed for playing from treble bells to larger bells is even flowing;
    2. The Carillonneur has a realistic feel of the clapper in hand;
    3. Repeated striking of the clapper is adequate;
    4. The overall mechanical structure has minimal secondary linkage noise;
    5. The overall construction is long lasting and durable from weather and wind.
