Manual

 

The 576 is a general purpose curve-tracer system that performs well in applications where high-current testing is required. The 576 accepts three different test fixtures: the Standard Test Fixture, 172 Programmable Test Fixture and the 176 Pulsed High Current Fixture.
 

Features:

  • Tests two- and three-terminal discrete semiconductors
  • Power capability up to 220 Watts
  • Convenient scale factor readout
  • Other test fixtures for semiautomated testing and testing power devices to 1000 Watts
  • Modes/Polarity
    • Norm: AC (at line frequency); positive or negative full-wave rectified ac.
    • DC: positive or negative dc.
    • Leakage: Emitter current rather than collector current measurements. 1000X increase in vertical deflection sensitivity (1nA/div).
