Used with the special designed sequential switch test box A131001, it can complete the test for multiple capacitors or aluminum foil rapidly, accurately and simultaneously in a short time without changing any test wire.

The repor t printing function is capable of printing the test results correctly and completely; and the built-in data calculation function can compute the test data of the product instantly for CPK analysis. To avoid the inefficient calculation proce s s done manua l l y, a te s t sof twa r e application is also available for you to create a quality report easily. It meets the EIAJ RC-2364A regulations for electrolytic capacitor test and is a test instrument of choice.

Chroma A131001 is a sequential switch test box of ten channels specially designed for Chroma 13100.
