Share Article

After about a year on the market LCR-Reader sales almost doubled exceeding Smart Tweezers LCR-meter sales in North America, Asia and Europe.

LCR-meter for consumers

LCR-Reader Akin to Smart Tweezers

Pen-sized, 1 Oz affordable LCR-meter simplifies PCB testing and component identification

Being on the market for slightly more than a year, LCR-Reader, the latest model based on previously released Smart Tweezers LCR-meter, is quickly gaining its market share.

With extremely user-friendly interface, high accuracy and the capability to test Surface Mount Devices without any set up required, LCR-Reader is an ultimate tool for professionals that design, make or repair PCBs. Its lightweight design and USB charging makes the device going nearly unnoticed in a bag or pocket. In the last ten years, Smart Tweezers LCR-meters have become a worldwide LCR-meter of choice for its ergonomic design and high accuracy that cuts down on unnecessary work while testing and troubleshooting Surface Mount Technology.

“We are quite happy with the sales progress made by LCR-Reader. It started slow, but due to low price and high reliability it caught up with Smart Tweezers sales in the last few months. Despite lower accuracy and limited functionality the device covers main needs for testing Surface Mount Devices and PCBs. In addition it performs much better for high value capacitors exceeding 1 mF which require manual test mode from ST-5S, the latest model of Smart Tweezers.” says Michael Obrecht, a Director at Siborg Systems Inc.

Currently LCR-Reader as well as Smart Tweezers LCR-meter are available internationally from Siborg Systems Inc and its distributors. Both devices are sold directly by Siborg Systems Inc via Amazon in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France and Spain. It reduces delivery delays and simplifies customs and duty processing.

LCR-Reader was released by Siborg Systems Inc. in late 2013 as a affordable alternative e to the popular Smart Tweezers LCR-meters. The Smart Tweezers success is due the design; a small LCR-meter integrated with gold-plated probes in a nearly pen-sized device that can be operated with only one hand. LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers revolutionize troubleshooting and testing of the Surface Mount Technology. Once a component is contacted by the probes, LCR-Reader will automatically detect the component type of and best test parameters providing the highest accuracy eliminating set up requirements. The gold-plated probes assure good contact grasp on components, that can be mounted on a PCB or loose, to 0.3mm or a 0201 size. The ability to measure components without any set up results in shorter time wasted evaluating component values.

Smart Tweezers is used by many world renowned high-tech institutions and professionals globally. The latest model ST-5S offers higher accuracy of 0.2%, and includes a NIST traceable calibration certificate which is necessary for companies requiring their test equipment calibrated annually. Highly flexible menu allows customization for specific measurements; parasitic offsets, variable tolerances of 1, 5, 10 and 20%, and variable test signals.

Both devices include a rechargeable Li-Ion battery and utilize a four wire connection from the probes to the PCB reducing the noise and improving the accuracy.
