Canadian Siborg and Vietnamese V-Proud Joint Stock Company have re-written their distribution deal for LCR-Reader, Smart Tweezers and other Test Tweezer devices

LCR-Reader and the 2-wire Shileded Probe Connector

Light, accurate and easy-to-use tweezer-like digital multimeters are increasingly popular in electronics manufacturing, prototyping and repair

Continuing on a distribution deal for popular handheld LCR- and ESR-meters LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers in Vietnam, Canadian Siborg Systems Inc., and V-Proud Joint Stock Company have re-written their deal to include a wider range of Siborg’s products.

V-Proud Joint Stock Company offer precision measuring instruments and many services including installation, repair, and calibration of test equipment; digitalizing and controlling measurement data and training services for the products they offer.

Siborg has been offering engineering software and hardware for the semiconductor and electronics industries since 1994. They are best known for the LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers LCR- and ESR-meters that combine a set of tweezers with a lightweight multimeter. Building on their success with tweezer-based test equipment, Siborg also currently offers:

●    LCR-Reader LCR- and ESR-meter
●    LCR-Reader Pro
●    LCR-Reader Probe Connector
●    Smart Tweezers LCR- and ESR-meter
●    Smart Tweezers ST5S-BT: Bluetooth enabled Smart Tweezers
●    Smart LED Test Tweezers
●    Multifunction SMD Test Tweezers

LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers LCR-meters are becoming more popular for testing and troubleshooting PCB problems. The combination of a lightweight multimeter and sharp tweezer-probes that are able to grasp components to a 0201 size and measure with speed and accuracy is an efficient tool. When the tweezers have a hold on a component, the LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers are able to instantly determine the type of component and best test parameters to use for optimal high accuracy. These devices have become proven time savers for all applications from production lines to repair and maintenance for the electronics industries.

●    LCR-Reader was designed as the lower-cost alternative to the Smart Tweezers line of digital multimeters. After removal of some features and slightly lowering basic accuracy to 0.5%, the LCR-Reader was made available at nearly half the price. Recently Siborg created a calibration fixture that allowed the creation of NIST traceable calibration certificates for LCR-Reader and other LCR-meters using Kelvin probe connection.

●    Siborg’s best selling model to date is the LCR-Reader Pro. This model is a task kit that includes a pre-calibrated LCR-Reader, NIST traceable calibration certificate, spare bent tweezer probes, and charger. This kit is currently available through Siborg’s online store and Amazon sales channels; until the end of September, the LCR-Reader Pro is available for $216 USD from Siborg Systems.

●    Smart Tweezers made their debut in the early 2000’s as an alternative to testing components using conventional testers. This model has the most options for customizing measurements and the highest basic accuracy of 0.2%. The Smart Tweezers ST-5S comes with an NIST traceable calibration certificate, bent tweezer probes and features such as continuity/diode testing, designated ESR measurements and component sorting.

●    A newly released Bluetooth enabled Smart Tweezers, the ST5S-BT is able to remotely record measurement values using a Bluetooth connection on computer of dedicated Android apps. The data sent can be received using data processing software such as National Instrument’s LabView, this data can be saved into a file or quick reference, or processed for later use.

Expanding on their available tweezers-based test equipment, Siborg began offering more devices in their online store and Amazon sales channels.

●    The LCR-Reader Probe Connector turns any LCR-Reader or Smart Tweezers LCR-meter into a probe station. Easy to connect and use, the multiple attachment heads are suitable for any job, these include: alligator clips, spade connector, multimeter jacks and long and medium pin probes. When connected, the LCR-Reader Probe Connector allows users to measure components larger than the tweezers’ usual spread.

●    The Smart LED Test Tweezers for testing through-hole and surface mount LEDs, using a 12VDC output and variable current outputs of 20, 10 and 5 mA. The device also comes with a connector cable that turns the device into tweezer-probes for multimeters, as well as carrying case and tweezer clips.

●    Multifunction SMD Test Tweezers are a tweezer-probe accessory for multimeters. This device plugs into most multimeters converting it into a tweezer-multimeter. The SMD Test Tweezers are priced below $10 USD and can handle up to 0402 components.

“We are excited to further our endeavor with Siborg,” says Mai Duc Anh, the Director a V-Proud Joint Stock Company, “We know that our customers will appreciate the new products that Siborg is offering, especially the LCR-Reader Pro; we had a very warm reception to the LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers LCR-meters. We imagine that the new products will be met with the same reception.”

All of Siborg’s products listed are currently available from V-Proud Joint Stock company in Vietnam.
