IET manufactures the most extensive line of decade capacitors available in the world.
10 distinct series cover an extraordinary range, from the ultra low point zero zero 2 Pico- Farads to the ultra high 1 Farad. We have a model that will fill any conceivable requirement or budget.
Here is a thumbnail summary of what is available.
The CS series is the most cost effective and the most popular. Available from 1 Pico-Farad to 1000 Micro-Farads, with accuracies ranging from 1 percent to 4 percent, these rugged units are controlled by easy to use thumbwheel switches.

For highest performance, calibration grade decade capacitors consider the HACS Z series (Say HACS as one word). With a high accuracy of point zero 5 percent, these units provide any range of capacitance from 1 Pico-Farad to Ten Thousand Micro-Farads. The zero capacitance is less than point 1 Pico-Farad and the temperature coefficient is better than 20 P P M per degree C.

The GenRad 14 13 is the world's defacto precision decade capacitor, with similar performance to the HACS Z series but with a range of 1 Pico-Farad to 1 Micro-Farad. The 14 13 has been the choice of the metrology community for decades.

The GenRad 14 12, with an accuracy of zero point 5 percent, is another high performance capacitance decade but at a more economical price. It goes up to 1 Micro-Farad while achieving high resolution by use of a variable air capacitor with 1 Pico-Farad dial divisions.

For even a more economical option with a long proven history, consider the Gen Rad 14 19. Ranges are available from 100 Pico-Farads to 1 Micro-Farad with accuracies ranging from zero point 5 percent to 1 percent.

The unique GenRad 14 17 is the only choice when extremely high capacitances are required. It has 7 switchable values that go from 1 Micro-Farad up to the envelope pushing 1 Farad.

The Gen Rad 14 22 series variable air capacitors are the world standard when it comes to very low capacitance. There are several models available that offer continuously dialable ranges from point zero zero 2 Pico-Farads to 1000 Pico Farads with incomparable stability and performance.

Finally for R-S-232 or I triple E computer controlled, programmable models that are suited for automated test stations, you should be looking at our P C S Series.
