Time Electronics 1006 DC Millivolt Source
The 1006 is an accurate low cost millivolt source suitable for voltage injection applications. Three output ranges are provided to give adjustable output values from 1µV to 1V with a basic 0.02% accuracy. For signal injection, the operator needs to switch on, check the battery condition, select the range, and set the required voltage using the thumbwheel switches. The 1006 uses a precision reference diode and low temperature coefficient resistors to give a highly stable output.
Power is provided by 6 AA batteries. Battery life is several months, depending on usage. The battery condition is monitored by an indicator mounted on the top of the unit. The 1006 has up to 20mA drive current and is short circuit and overload protected. An off/normal/reverse output polarity switch is provided.
Fitted as standard and fully compatible with 4mm shrouded plugs, as well as standard plugs, bare wires, and spade terminals.
The 1006 comes fitted with an ergonomic rubber cover providing increased protection and durability. It has a textured grip for comfortable handling and openings at the top and bottom to allow access to the battery meter and a position to place labels if required. It is easy to remove if the user prefers a stand-alone unit or to house the 1006 in the 9027 carry case.
As an accurate millivolt source, the 1006 can be used for many applications including thermocouple simulation (using appropriate lookup table), chart recorder calibration, A/D converter and DMM calibration, and as a stable voltage for backing off DC offsets.
The 1006 is an easy to use calibration instrument designed for accuracy and reliability. As part of the Time Electronics portable test equipment range it is ideal for use in the lab or field.
