Original Press Release:
B & K Precision's(R) New Synthesized In-Circuit LCR/ESR Meter Tests Components at up to 100KHz
B+K Precision's® New Synthesized In-Circuit LCR/ESR Meter Tests Components at up to 100KHz
PLACENTIA, Calif., November 30, 2001 - B+K Precision Corporation, one of the industry's leading suppliers of test and measurement products, today announced the addition of the Model 886 Synthesized In-Circuit LCR/ESR Meter to its growing line of test and measurement products. The new lightweight, battery powered, hand-held unit can be used to test components at frequencies up to 100KHz.
"Our new Model 886 Synthesized In-Circuit meter can test components at frequencies up to 100KHz and is the most accurate meter on the market," said Victor Tolan, B+K Precision's President and CEO. "If you're looking to ensure the performance of the circuit, our metier will get the job done quickly and economically. And at a suggested retail price of only $769, it is the best buy on the market today."
"Higher frequency circuits are being used every day to take advantage of the size, performance, and lower power. To ensure the performance of the circuit, the Equivalent Serial Resistance (ESR) in a capacitor is the key element determining efficiency and performance. With our Model 886, the user can quickly check the ESR of a capacitor," continued Tolan.
The unique, hand-held Model 886 Synthesized In-Circuit LCR/ESR Meter offers a wide range of test frequencies up to 100KHz. It has been designed for both component evaluation on the production line and fundamental impedance testing from bench-top applications. Utilizing the built-in test fixture, the user can very easily test the lead components.
Surface mount components are usually tiny and have no wire leads, making them more difficult to test. The included SMD test probe gives users an easy way to conduct SMD component testing. An optional 4-wire test clip provides a convenient connection to larger components and assemblies with the accuracy of 4-wire testing.
The Model 886 Synthesized In-Circuit LCR/ECR meter offers a large variety of measurement parameters such as Z, L, C, DCR, ESR, D, Q, and Ã¸, and a wide range of test conditions including 100Hz, 120Hz, 1KHz, 10KHz, 100KHz, 1Vrms, 0.25Vrms and 0.05Vrms. It features DC resistance measurement, rechargeable battery/AC power, 0.5% basic accuracy, a large, easy-to-read dual LCD display, fully auto/manual selection, and very quick response.
B+K Precision's Model 885 Synthesized In-Circuit LCR/ECR Meter comes complete with instruction manual, battery, SMD Surface Mount Probe and carry case, and is priced at $549, quantity one. It is available for immediate delivery.
