LCR-Reader and ST-5S, Smaller and Lighter but not less poweful tool for PCB debugging and component evaluation
Waterloo, Ontario (PRWEB) April 29, 2014
Canadian Siborg Systems Inc. has agreed to work with Lokmita in Lithuania to offer popular handheld LCR-meters, Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader. Smart Tweezers ST-5 model is getting an update, the ST-5S is in production and will be available soon. The first batch of LCR-Readers has been shipped to Lithuania.
Lokmita offers modern and high quality measurement equipment, as well as temperature measuring instruments, soldering supplies, and a large range of equipment to companies and professionals in Lithuania. The Smart Tweezers line will fit in well with the rest of the quality tools that Lokmita offers.
"This is our first representative in the region'" says Michael Obrecht, Director at Siborg Systems Inc, "It is very important to us in order to serve Baltic region countries more efficiently."
LCR-Reader, the consumers’ choice LCR-meter, and its predecessor, Smart Tweezers, are professional quality, fully automatic LCR-meters designed specifically for Surface Mount Technology. Both devices instantly recognize the type of component and measure automatically for Inductance, Resistance or Capacitance while also measuring for the Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) values. When in contact, Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader are able to determine the best test parameters for the type of component, and measure with high basic accuracy (1% for LCR-Reader and 0.2% for Smart Tweezers).
The ST-5S, the updated model of Smart Tweezers ST-5, will still offer the same functionality and features as ST-5, but has a leaner, lighter design as the LCR-Reader.
The features include:
- Fully automatic Inductance, Resistance, Capacitance, and Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) evaluations
- Basic accuracy of 0.2%
- Component sorting
- Adjustable test signals
- Continuity and Diode testing
- Displays active and reactive impedance components
- Parasitic offset capabilities
- Ideal for small components as small as 0201 size (0.3mm)
- Li-Ion battery, with micro-USB charging
- 1 oz. weight
LCR-Reader is very similar to other Smart Tweezers models, but has a lower basic accuracy of 1%, and lacks features such as component sorting, variable test signals, parasitic offset, and continuity and diode testing.
The Smart Tweezers LCR-meter line has become popular device worldwide for all applications from evaluating loose components to testing those already mounted on a crowded PCB without needing to remove them. Because of their unique, one-handed-use design, and fully automatic measurements, Smart Tweezers LCR-meters allow users to focus solely on the task at hand because there is no need to stop and set-up for the next evaluation.
Siborg is excited to be able to further expand the availability of Smart Tweezers into Lithuania and other Baltic contries with help from Lokmita.
