Term Definition
A feature which automatically selects the capacitance range that will provide highest resolution. 
Commonly abbreviated as BJT, it is one of the major types of three-terminal semiconductor devices. It consists of two pn junctions that are connected in series, therefore having current be conducted by both electrons and holes. 
A measurement that often characterizes the amount of charge stored in capacitors. The standard equation for capacitance is C = Q/V, where C stands for capacitance, Q is the charge on the parallel plates, and V is the voltage across those plates. It's generally measured in the unit, Farad (F). 
A test instrument used to measure capacitance of electronic components. 
A physical electronic component that consists of a pair of parallel plates used for storing energy inside an electric field that exists in between them. 
A feature which, upon pressing a button holds (or freezes) the instantaneous reading on the display at the time the button is pressed. 
A DC current required to achieve an intended amount of inductance. 
A common electronic component that has one direction of current flow. They are often used in power supplies and rectifiers for AC to DC voltage conversion. 
The Dissipation Factor (or D) is considered equal to the power factor of a dielectric, which is the cosine of the phase angle by which the current leads the voltage. The Dissipation Factor is usually measured during the measuring of capacitors. It is also the reciprocal of Q. 
Stands for equivalent series resistance, which is a measurement primarily used to define the performance of an electrolytic capacitor. They are measured to be internal resistances that are in series with a desired capacitance at certain frequencies. 
A test equipment tool to measure the equivalent series resistance. 
Field Effect Transistor, consisting of three terminals: gate, drain, source. 
A measurement that is defined in terms of emf, electromotive force, that is generated to oppose any change in current. The unit for measurement is in Henry (H). 
A circuit element, usually made of a coil of wires, that stores energy in a magnetic field when electric current passes through it. It is often used as a component in power supplies or as a pair to create a transformer. 
An abbreviation signifying inductance (L), capacitance (C), and resistance (R). 
A multifunction instrument which measures inductance (L) of coils or inductors (and other inductive devices); capacitance (C) of capacitors or components and resistance (R) of carbon resistors or any non-inductive component. 
Is the abbreviation for Light Emitting Diode. It is an electronic component that produces a bright light and has a long lifetime. 
The number of times per second that the test or measurement is updated. 
NPN refers to a type of bi-polar junction transistors (BJT), which consists of three regions: n-type emitter, p-type base, n-type collector. The normal current flow of the emitter in a NPN transistor has a forward direction from base to emitter. 
Usually for Resistance and Capacitance measurements of Resistors and Capacitors 
In a way, PNP is another type of BJT and is opposite of NPN transistors. The emitter region is p-type, base region is n-type, and collector region is p-type. The normal current flow of the emitter in a PNP transistor has a forward direction from emitter to base, which is opposite of NPN transistors. 
The Quality Factor (or Q). The Quality Factor is usually measured during the measuring of inductors. It is also the reciprocal of D. 
A common measurement function in a component tester that allows you to make relative measurements in a specified range. 
A measurement that indicates the amount of current given a potential difference. The standard formula to compute this measurement in electronic circuits is R = V/I, and the unit is ohm, often indicated by the Greek symbol omega. 
Generally made of resistive wires, it is a circuit element that produces a voltage drop across its two terminals. 
The smallest increment of change that can be indicated on a display. 
An abbreviation for silicon-controller rectifier, is a rectifier that consists of four layers. It can be simplified as two BJT transistors, one PNP and one NPN, connected between the base and collector regions of the PNP to the emitter and base junction of the NPN transistor respectively. A SCR often has a very high voltage rating.

Electrical & Battery Testers - Product Categories

Abbreviation for lithium ion, is one of the most popular type of rechargeable batteries used today to provide longer lasting power than Ni-MH batteries for portable electronics such as cellular phones and laptop computers. It represents how much constant current can be provided in an hour before the battery becomes insufficient in providing power. 10Ah capacity means the battery can provide a 10A current continuously for an hour.


DC Electronic Loads - Product Categories

Some applications may require high voltage/low current and low voltage/high current, which a single load may not be able to handle. When selecting a DC load, it is important to consider not only voltage and current requirements, but also power ratings. The power used when testing must fall within the hashed region for the appropriate DC load.


Environmental Testers - Product Categories

The luminous intensity, in a given direction, of a source that emits monochromatic radiation with wavelengths weighted to the standardized model of sensitivity of the human eye. Absolute humidity is expressed as the number of kilograms of water vapor per cubic meter of air. Can also be called as luminance per square foot is a standard unit of luminance. Refers to the mass of water in a particular volume of air.


Model 4005DDS - 5 MHz DDS Function Generator

The B&K Precision model 4005DDS is a versatile 5 MHz DDS (direct digital synthesis) function generator with a 4-digit display. The instrument generates sinusoidal, triangular, and square waveforms over the 1 Hz to 5 MHz range at precise frequencies. A continuously variable DC offset allows the output to be injected directly into circuits at the correct bias level.


Multimeters - Product Categories - B&K Precision

Special tools called Kelvin clips or probes are commonly used for this measurement to avoid contacts between the wires that may introduce stray resistance to the measuring circuit. The International Electrotechnical Commission has defined voltage category ratings that indicate an instrument's ability to withstand voltage spikes.
