Term Definition
Amp x h, a standard unit to measure a battery's total capacity. It represents how much constant current (A) can be provided in an hour before the battery becomes insufficient in providing power. For example, 10Ah capacity means the battery can provide a 10A current continuously for an hour. 
Internal resistance represents the internal chemical behaviors of a battery in the form of electrical circuitry. It is often measured to determine the life of a battery, indicating whether a battery can recharge further for use or not. 
Indicates the capacity of charge in a battery, which determines the amount of power a battery can provide before it is used up. 
Refers to the chemicals used for making a battery. Ideally, these are used for the type of batteries used in automobile. 
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. 
Milli-amp x h, a common unit of measure to indicate a battery's total capacity. This is often used to indicate capacity of consumer type batteries of type Ni-MH or Li-Ion. 
Abbreviation for nickel metal hydride, is a popular type of rechargeable batteries often used for powering portable electronic devices. 
Sealed lead acid

Component Testers - Product Categories

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. Stands for equivalent series resistance, which is a measurement primarily used to define the performance of an electrolytic capacitor.


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.
