Calibration : Capacitance & Inductance

Capacitance & Inductance

Measurement of capacitance 1 pF to 100 uF with uncertainties from 7 ppm can be achieved based on our house reference standards. Ratio transformer bridges and a precision component analyser give us flexibility in both frequency and magnitude for capacitance calibration. Sourcing of capacitance 10 pF to 1 uF at 1 kHz with uncertainties from 4 ppm can be achieved.

Our inductance calibration measurement range covers 1 mH to 10 H with uncertainties from 0.01% by substitution method using bridges. Sourcing of inductance from 1 mH to 1 H with uncertainties from 1.2 nH.
