2013-09-27 20:38:47 - Canadian Siborg Systems Inc. and Indochina Equipment and Accessories JSC have joined efforts in offering Smart Tweezers ST5 and LCR-Reader models in Vietnam
Smart Tweezers handheld LCR-meters, from Canadian Siborg Systems Inc., have gained worldwide notoriety as an essential tool for working with electronics. The ST5 and new LCR-Reader models have been picked up by Indochina Equipment and Accessories JSC to be offered in Southeastern Asia.
Indochina JSC is a known supplier in Southeastern Asia, specializing in supplying equipment and spare parts for various industries using heavy machinery.
“In a modern world, all machines use Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) with a high density of Surface Mount Devices (SMDs says the CEO at Indochina JSC, Mr. Tam, “A few of our clients approached us with a request to procure Smart Tweezers LCR-meter [ www.siborg.com/smarttweezers], which is an indispensable tool for PCB repair
The combination of a set
of tweezers and a small-yet-powerful LCR-meter is instantly recognizable. Smart Tweezers are a fully automatic, handheld LCR-meter, able to evaluate all types of components (to as small as 0201 or 0.3mm size) when in contact with the tweezers.. Just a touch and the device determines the type of component and evaluates automatically for Inductance, Resistance, or Capacitance as well as ESR values. Smart Tweezers also measure for real and imaginary impedances, which allows the device to measure in addition to the capacitance, the ESR or dissipation factor D, and the resistance or Q for Inductance.
The new LCR-Reader [ www.lcr-reader.com
] model is only 1 oz. weight, half the size of previous models, and features a new high-contrast LCD screen and a lower cost. All measurements are done with a 1% basic accuracy, surpassing the basic accuracy found on previous ST1, ST2 and ST3 models. It is powered by Li-Ion battery with micro-USB connector. The test frequency is automatically selected for the highest accuracy readings, and test signal amplitude is 0.5 Volts. The only restriction to the test signal amplitude of 0.5 Vrms is that ceramic capacitors are read with lower capacitance than actually available. The one-button-navigation allows the user to easily cycle through measurement modes such as Automatic, Inductance, Resistance, Capacitance, and ESR modes.
Features that are available on the ST5 model [ www.siborg.com/smarttweezers
.], but not the LCR-Reader [ www.lcr-reader.com
] include; component sorting, continuity and diode testing, incomplete circuit detection, and offset subtraction adjustments.
The photo included is an example of the new LCD screen while demonstrating a measurement. The device is shown evaluating an Inductor as shown by displaying ‘L with a main impedance of 104.8 uH. The ‘AM’ signals that the device is in Automatic Mode, ‘Rs’ shows the parasitic series resistance, 10 kHz is the test frequency. A small battery icon on the bottom corner shows the remaining battery power.
The Smart Tweezers line of handheld, digital LCR-meters is an exceptional tool for any professional or enthusiast that wants a powerful LCR-meter with accuracy that rivals conventional testers without the need for setting-up.
A sales price for the new LCR-Reader is available until the end of October.
