The 240C is a decade resistor from Clarostat. A decade resistor is a type of electronic test equipment with a series of resistors, inductors, or capacitors to simulate specific electrical values. An engineer can replace any standard-value component in a circuit with a used or refurbished decade resistor because of its ability to configure to almost any value.
- Provides any ohm value, in 1 ohm increments, from 1 to 999,999 ohms
- Determines known or unknown resistance values by simple dialing
- Power ratings to 225 watts max. at 1000 Volts max
- Six decades for quick setting and direct readout
The Clarostat 240C can be used in actual circuits and under "live" conditions. Connections are made via two sets of terminals taking banana-plug, spade-lug, or plain wire connections.
