LCR-Reader: Consumer's Choice LCR-meter
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (PRWEB) August 31, 2015
Since it’s debut in the early 2000’s, the Smart Tweezers line of digital LCR-meters have become famous for quickly evaluating all types of Surface Mount Technology. The LCR-Reader was released in 2013 as a lower-cost alternative to Smart Tweezers. Both devices are now available from LINDIN Co. Ltd. in Vietnam due to a new deal with Canadian Siborg Systems Inc. Siborg has sent the first shipment of devices.
LINDIN Co. Ltd. is a distributor and reseller of test and measurement equipment, educational technology products and maintenance services of many well known name brands. They also offer consulting for equipment in industrial, manufacturing, distribution and service industries.
“We are happy to have a new partnership with LINDIN Co. Ltd. to be a distributor of LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers LCR-meters. They will help Vietnam and surrounding Asian areas have better access to the Smart Tweezers family; with shorter wait times for shipping. Siborg is certain that Smart Tweezers will get a good reception from LINDIN’s customer base and will fit in well with the other products they offer,” says Michael Obrecht, Director of Siborg Systems Inc.
Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader are 1 oz. weight LCR-meters that offer a simplified alternative to testing SMT with bench-type testers. LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers utilize a set of tweezers as the probes that can reach and grasp all sizes of components, either loose or mounted. When the gold-plated tweezers are in contact, they automatically determine the type of component and best test parameters for high accuracy measurements that are instantly displayed on the built in OLED display.
The main difference between the LCR-Reader and the Smart Tweezers devices is the price and the functionality. The LCR-Reader is a lower-cost model; this was achievable by omitting features that can be found on the Smart Tweezers devices. These include: semi-automatic offset subtraction, variable tolerances, and extensive menus with more options to set for specific measurements. The LCR-Reader is sold for nearly half that of the ST models, retailing for less than $200 USD. Though lower in price, the LCR-Reader offers users a 1% basic accuracy and does not come with an NIST Traceable Calibration Certificate; the ST-5S model has a 0.2% basic accuracy and does have a certificate.
The LCR-Reader will be accompanied by an NIST Traceable Certificate in the future. Recently, Siborg, with help from the Russian Academy of Sciences in Novisibirsk, created a calibration jig that has been sent to Navair in Canada to be calibrated itself. This jig, and its certification means that, in turn, it will be able to certify the LCR-Reader’s accuracy.
