The 1409Y is a used Capacitance Standard from General Radio. Engineers use direct current (DC) voltage standards to calibrate, standardize, normalize, and monitor drift, verify linearity, and establish regulation in electronic equipment. Standards are important during electronics compliance testing. Phase angle standards are ideal for calibrating many different electronics, including power analyzers, vector voltmeters, phase meters, phase sensitive instruments, and resolvers.
The General Radio 1409Y 1µF Standard Capacitor is a fixed mica capacitor. It is a high stability unit for use in two or three-terminal reference or working standards in the laboratory.
Accuracy is certified within ±0.05% of the nominal capacitance value (two-terminal) marked on the case. Dissipation factor is less than 0.0003 at 1 kHz and 23ºC.
