Increased Accuracy For The Type A And Ah Decade Voltage Dividers

Decade Voltage Divider Input Woltmeter

A new model of the Decade Voltage Divider, with an input resistance of 100,000 ohms, has been made available. In addition, the accuracy specification for these dividers has been improved by a factor of 2.5. The factors affecting the accuracy are discussed in this article. The Type 1454-A Decade Voltage Divider was introduced in 1955' with accuracy specifications of 0.1 in voltage ratio 0.000001. The intent was to take advantage of the inherently good characteristics of the Type 510 Decade...
