REED R5406 Capacitance Decade Box


Capacitance box with 5 decade ranges of capacitance.

REED R5406 Offers

This capacitance decade box can be used to design and test circuits. The R5406 features slide switches that allow a user to easily add or subtract to quickly reach the desired capacitance range. Once tested, a capacitor size indicated by the decade box can then be put into the circuit.


  • 5% capacitance substitution from 100pF to 11,111µF
  • Excellent for circuit development
  • 3 binding posts permit isolated substitutions
  • 5 decade ranges of capacitance
  • Durable construction
