Safety Terminals

The 1071 connections are via safety terminals that are compatible with standard plugs, 4 mm shrouded 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.

Added Protection

The 1071 capacitance 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 instrument in the optional 9026 carry case.
