Taylor Model 110C C&R Bridge
|Manufacturer||Taylor Instrument Company|
|Service Data||Instructions only.|
|Condition||Very Good - untested.|
|Dimensions||8" x 5" x 4" (200 x 135 x 110mm)|
|Comments||A typical bench top bridge of the period.
It can measure capacitance from about 5pF to 1200uF and
resistance from about 1 Ohm to 120 M Ohm. The circuit is
simple, with a 6J5GT oscillator exciting the bridge, and
an EM34 as a null detector, the rectifier is a 6X5GT.
There is also a control marked "Power Factor",
the purpose of which is unclear (if anybody knows, please
email me!). Unusually, the power switch (and voltage
selector) are on the side of the instrument, which may
have made it a little awkward to use on the bench.
Inside view, showing the simplicity of the instrument. The power transformer is in the base of the case, with everthing else being mounted on the lid.
