1070 Capacitance Substitution Box

High accuracy and wide range makes the 1070 capacitance decade box suitable for applications in industry and education.

It is both compact and robust, housed in a metal case that provides complete screening, with a protective rubber cover to guard the 1070 against everyday wear and tear. The 5-digit thumbwheel switch enables simple and precise setting of the capacitance value. 

Clear Visual Indication: To make selecting and reading the setting easy the 1070 incorporates colour coded digits: μF - red, nF - white, pF - yellow.

Also available is the 1071 capacitance decade box that provides 10 pF to 100 μF. This unit maintains the same features and ease of use with an additional two decades to cover the wider range.


  • 100 pF to 10 μF
  • 1 % Accuracy
  • In-line readout
  • Colour coded digits
  • Safety terminals
  • Bi-polar working
  • Supplied with protective cover
Decade Box Safety Terminals

Safety Terminals

The 1070 capacitance box has safety terminals that are compatible with 4 mm shrouded plugs, standard plugs, bare wires, and spade connectors.

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.

Decade Box Rubber Boot

Added Protection

The decade box comes fitted with an ergonomic rubber cover providing increased protection and durability. It has a textured grip for comfortable handling and side openings to place labels.

It is easy to remove if the user prefers a stand-alone unit or to house the 1070 in the optional 9026 carry case.

1070 Applications

  • General purpose capacitance substitution
  • Calibration of capacitance in measuring devices
  • Finding optimal operating values in circuits
  • Service work, troubleshooting and maintenance
  • Educational use in electronics and physics
