1061 Resistance Decade Box

A cost effective resistance decade box designed to meet the standard required in both educational and industrial applications. Metal film resistors with a 0.75 watt power rating are used throughout, providing the advantages of stability and low temperature coefficient. 

The 1061 features six large rotary switches, each with a clear numerical readout that makes resistance setting easy and fast. The robust design provides a durable solution for long-term operation, making it ideal for use in education. 

The slimline form factor means it takes up minimum bench space, while the 1 % accuracy and wide range makes it suitable for production or select-on-test usage. The case provides complete electrostatic screening.


  • 1 Ω to 1.2 MΩ
  • In-line readout

  • Mechanically and electrically robust
  • Ideal for education and electronics
  • Safety terminals
  • Fully screened
Decade Box Safety Terminals

Safety Terminals

The 1061 connections are via safety terminals that are compatible with 4 mm shrouded plugs, standard plugs, bare wires, and spade terminals.

These terminals are specifically designed with safety features including limited opening distance and a raised flange around the metal connection surface. This ensures that the clearances are sufficient to make the exposed metal parts touch-proof.

1061 inline readout

Simple Operation and In-line Readout

Resistance is selected by dialling the value required using the rotary switches. This enables precise setting with a clear unambiguous indication. 

Each decade is scaled from 0 to 11. This allows a convenient overlap of the set values.
