Designed for ease of use and superior performance while used for measurement of small current, small charge or time constant for RC experiments. Rotary switch of extremely high insulation resistance (>500GΩ) is employed to select resistors or capacitors, to discharge the capacitor or leave them open.
Typical half times for this unit, for the built in 1nF 100GO or 100nF 1GO RC pairs, are from 67 to 71 seconds against theoretical values of 69.3 seconds. Charge or current is tabulated on a table on front panel for easy reference.
