The unit incorporates a colour coding system which divides the setting into three groups -
µF = Red
ηF = White
ρF = Yellow
The high accuracy obtained in the 1070 is achieved by the use of accurate, stable capacitors. A thumbwheel switch provides precision selection of output capacitance.
Switch Contacts: A multiple gold contact switch arrangement ensures that should a contact fail, there is always a back-up contact available.
Safety Terminals: Fully compatible with 4mm shrouded plugs, as well as standard plugs, bare wires, and spade terminals.
Added Protection: The 1070 comes fitted with an ergonomic rubber boot (9028) providing increased protection and durability.
The boot has a textured grip for comfortable handling and a raised edge so the 1070 angles slightly upward when resting horizontally.
This improves visibility as well as gripping the surface, meaning no movement when thumbwheel switches are pressed. It is easy to remove if the user prefers a stand alone unit or to house the decade box in the 9026 carry case.
This capacitance decade box is one of the Time Electronics precision decade box line. It is easy-to-operate, portable, and gives the user high accuracy and reliability.
