Charge and Discharge Apparatus

The Charge and Discharge Apparatus consists of all the components required for monitoring and recording the charging and discharging curves of capacitors. Three components are combined in a single housing and monitor different elements across set points in a circuit.

Features of the Charge and Discharge Apparatus

  • Records charging and discharging curves
  • Includes 12V AC plug-in power supply
  • Three units: voltage comparator, digital counter and three resistor-capacitors
  • Suitable for a range of different experiment topics
  • Monitors the curves across individual points
  • Pair of sockets for connecting external resistor and external capacitor

Voltage Comparator:

  • Compares charging and discharging voltages
  • Sets a comparison voltage
  • 11 different values
  • Range between 0-10V

Digital Counter:

  • Monitors the charging and discharging times
  • Works once the comparison voltage has been attained

Technical Specification of the Charge and Discharge Apparatus

  • Internal capacitor: 2067µF
  • Internal resistors: 2.2kΩ, 5.1kΩ, 10kΩ
  • Digital counter: 4-digit quartz controlled
  • Maximum value: 200s
  • Resolution: 100ms
  • Power supply: 12V AC, 2000mA plug-in power supply
  • Dimensions: 260 x 220 x 55mm
  • Weight (including power supply): 1.7kg

Experiment Topics of the Charge and Discharge Apparatus

  • Measurement of charging and discharging curves for pairs of RC components
  • Determination of ratings of integrated resistors
  • Determination of ratings of integrated capacitors
  • Determination of rating of an electrolytic capacitor
  • Estimation of bounce times

There are two types of charge and discharge apparatus available:

  • Charge and Discharge Apparatus: 230V, 50/60Hz
  • Charge and Discharge Apparatus: 115V, 50/60Hz
