GenRad 1419-A and GenRad 1419-B (polystyrene) owing to its very low dielectric absorption, the GenRad 1419A 3 decade 1000pF/step and 1419B 4 decade 100pF/step polystyrene decade capacitors are particularly useful in research and development work on computer and integrator circuits and on low-level amplifiers.
Its constancy of capacitance and dissipation factor as a function of frequency also makes it extremely useful in measuring circuits and as a component in filters and tuned circuits.
High insulation resistance and low dielectric absorption make it the 1419 decade capacitor a nearly ideal capacitor for DC work.
- Range from 100pF to 1.1µF
- Choice of 3 models
- Accuracy as good as 0.5%
- Capacitance and dissipation factor vary only slightly with frequency from dc through the audio frequency range.
