Datasheet Users Manual


High accuracy and wide range makes the 1070 capacitance decade box suitable for applications in industry and education.

It is both compact and robust, housed in a metal case that provides complete screening, with a protective rubber cover to guard the 1070 against everyday wear and tear. The 5-digit thumbwheel switch enables simple and precise setting of the capacitance value.

Clear Visual Indication

To make selecting and reading the setting easy the 1070 incorporates colour coded digits: μF - red, nF - white, pF - yellow.

Safety Terminals

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 cover providing increased protection and durability. It has a textured grip for comfortable handling and side openings to place labels. It is easy to remove if the user prefers a stand-alone unit or to house the 1070 in the optional 9026 carry case.
