LCR-Reader-MPA will be shown at this year's Del Mar Electronics and Manufacturing Show in San Diego, California, September 16-17, 2020. Visit booth #233!
WATERLOO, Ontario (PRWEB) July 20, 2020
Siborg Systems Inc., the Canadian company behind the popular LCR-Reader multimeter line, will be showing the powerful LCR-Reader-MPA at this years Del Mar Electronics and Manufacturing Show in California. The show runs from September 16th-17th, 2020 in San Diego, California, and Siborg will be showing at booth #233.
The LCR-Reader line of multimeters offers devices that can identify and test components with just a touch. The devices use a powerful multimeter combined with a set of gold-plated tweezers; when the tweezers hold a component, the multimeter will automatically determine the type of component and best test parameters to use with no set-up required. All measurement values (LCR, ESR, etc.) are instantly available on the devices’ screen. The ability to test without any set up is extremely efficient, especially for component sorting and time sensitive tasks such as production lines.
LCR-Reader-MPA is the newest model in the LCR-Reader line of simple-to-use multimeters. Unlike other devices available on the market, such as Smart Tweezers, this model offers the most powerful basic accuracy at 0.1% and the most features on any of Siborg’s test equipment, including an oscilloscope mode which has not been included on a device since Smart Tweezers ST-1. Other features on the device include LED/diode testing, AC/DC current and voltage measurements, Signal Generator, Duty Cycle and frequency measurements, Pulse Counting, short/continuity testing, and more.
Some of the features that set MPA apart from the competition is the Large and Super Large Capacitance measurements up to 1,000 mF and a wide range of test frequencies (100, 120 Hz, 1, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 75 and 100 kHz). The ability to use 100 kHz is one of the most attractive features on the device, this allows for a 0.1 nH resolution for Inductance measurements and 0.001 F for Capacitance measurements. MPA is also able to automatically reduce the test signal level to 0.1 V for in-circuit measurements, and offers 3 test signal level for LEDs (0.1, 0.5 and 1.0 Vrms).
The device is lightweight and portable; it is slightly larger than a pen and only weighs 1 oz. making it nearly undetectable in a bag. The backlit LCD display provides enough contrast to be easily read in low-light situations. Controlled by a 4-way joystick-like button, users can change basic settings from the main screens or enter the more extensive menus for better customization. The Li-Po battery offers 7 hours of continuous use and is charged by a micro-USB cable.

Siborg will also take their LCR-Reader multimeter to the show; LCR-Reader is the budget alternative to more expensive multimeters such as Smart Tweezers without compromising on speed or accuracy. LCR-reader offers a 0.5% basic accuracy and testing without set-up, though this device does not allow users to customize their measurements beyond selecting ‘Auto’, ‘Inductance’, ‘Resistance’, or ‘Capacitance’ measurement mode. The device is still able to determine the type of component and best test frequency to use and displays all information, including ESR values on the OLED display.
Recently, Siborg began offering the LCR-Reader-MPA Professional task kit that includes device, NIST Traceable Calibration Certificate, Kelvin Probe Connector, spare bent tweezer probes, Offset Calibration Board, charging cable and charger. The Kelvin Probe Connector is a kit that comes with 5 different attachments and turns any tweezer-meter into a low-frequency probe station. This kit is best used with MPA’s oscilloscope mode to test waveforms at various nodes on a PCB. The Kelvin Probe Connector also allows the tweezer meter to test components larger than the tweezers’ gap. Many parts and accessories for Smart Tweezers and LCR-Readers are available on out website.
