This decreases system settling time, lowers parasitic dielectric absorption effects and permits much lower level currents and voltages to be measured.
Four of the six testers also feature a polarization index (PI) and dielectric absorption ratio (DAR) function in addition to adjustable continuity pass/fail limit alarms.
The position of this maximum in the microwave range of frequency indicates that we are dealing with a dielectric absorption of the Debye type.
