Share Article

Siborg Systems Inc. is offering a discount for the week of November 21-27, 2016 for its line of tweezer-meters

LCR-Reader and the Probe Connector

New LCR-Reader Professional Plus comes with spare tweezer tips, battery and Smart Tweezers and Kelvin Probe Connector

Starting Midnight Sunday/Monday on November 21th, Siborg Systems Inc. is offering a discount on their new Smart Tweezers Plus, LCR-Reader Professional and LCR-Reader Professional Plus task kits for the week of Black Friday. The deal is available on the LCR-Reader Store and on their Amazon sales channels in USA, Canada and Europe.

The new task kits include the latest accessory: Kelvin Probe Connector for Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader. The connector is built of a two-wire shielded cable with replaceable attachments. Due to the two-wire connection the connector virtually is offset free and allows to handle larger size components and make low-frequency impedance testing for a complete PCB. This easy to install device allows both LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers devices to become full probe stations with the removal of one tip. It comes with multiple attachments for different jobs, including long and short probes, alligator clips, spade connector and multimeter plugs. The attachments simply screw into the end of the connector cable for quick exchange.

LCR-Reader Professional and LCR-Reader Professional Plus task kits are pre-bundled boxes that come with LCR-Reader LCR- and ESR-meters, NIST Traceable calibration certificates, spare bent tweezer probes and charger. When this kit is bought through the LCR-Reader Store, it also includes a spare battery.

LCR-Reader is a simplified version of the Smart Tweezers LCR- and ESR-meters; with less features but while still keeping a basic accuracy of 0.5%. This device is controlled with a one-button navigation and is chargeable via micro-USB.

Siborg’s other offered Smart Tweezers LCR- and ESR-meters have a basic accuracy of 0.2% and extensive menus for more customized measurements. This device also comes with spare bent ergonomic tweezer tips, NIST traceable calibration and the Probe Connector. Amongst various Smart Tweezers task kits, the new Bluetooth model is also offered. This model is interfaced with National Instruments LabView allowing to use the measurement data readily for post-processing.

Over the past year, Siborg worked in creating a new calibration fixture that could handle the full range of measurements performed by LCR-Reader and other tweezer-based testers. This fixture was then verified by Navair Technologies in Toronto, Ontario and granted Siborg the ability to begin offering NIST traceable calibration certificates for LCR-Reader devices. This was a relief to professionals looking for an easy to use tweezer-based LCR- and ESR-meter with high accuracy but without the high price tag. The ability to provide traceable calibration was a hindrance to professionals owning the LCR-Reader.

Be sure to visit the LCR-Reader Store for Siborg’s Black Friday Sale for the week of November 21st to 27th to get 20% off the LCR-Reader Professional, LCR-Reader Professional Plus and Smart Tweezers Plus task kits.

Besides, Siborg will offer other tweezer-like tools such as LED Test Tweezers and SMD Test Tweezers that could add tweezer-meter functionality to any digital multimeter.
