Siborg Releases New Bent-Tips

// October 13th, 2015 // No Comments » // LCR-Reader, Maintenance, News, Smart Tweezers Maintenance, ST-5S

A new optional replacement tip has been made available. This new design is more ergonomic than the straight-tip models by angling down toward a component or PCB, making it easier to hold the LCR-Reader or Smart Tweezers device at a more horizontal level. All devices will still be equipped with straight-tips, with the bent-tip an additional purchase.

“We are excited to bring LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers LCR-meters to Taitronics in Taipei. These products will be a great fit among the other leading technologies. We have a few distributors in China, but only one in Taiwan, Ascentex. We are hoping to establish new contacts in Taiwan and possibly in Hong Kong and China.” says Michael Obrecht, the Director at Siborg Systems Inc.

New Calibration Jig

// August 2nd, 2015 // No Comments » // LCR-Reader, Maintenance, News

Siborg Systems Inc and the Institute of Automation and Electrometry at the Academy of Sciences have banded together in creating new calibration jigs with 4 and 2 wire connections allowing for all models of Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader to be calibrated.

This jig cannot create NIST certificates and needs to be certified itself, but is a helpful tool for periodically checking the accuracy of devices as well as troubleshooting if a device should fail or malfunction.

When connected to a Smart Tweezers or LCR-Reader device, one press of the button allows the calibration jig to systematically cycle through 14 known components. The results are then displayed on the ST or LCR-Reader display to be compared to the known values.

The 4-wire jig is compatible with models from ST-3 and up, including the LCR-Reader, while the 2-wire jig is best for older models.

Siborg Sends 4 LCR-Readers for Verification

// August 2nd, 2015 // No Comments » // LCR-Reader, Maintenance, News

Since the LCR-Reader does not come with an NIST traceable certificate, Siborg sent 4 randomly chosen LCR-Readers to Toronto’s Navair Technologies, one of the leading calibration facilities in Canada that offers NIST certification.

Siborg has recieved the results and they provided surprising results. Siborg has claimed that the LCR-Reader offers a 1% basic accuracy, while the results are closer to 0.5%. The only measurement that was away from the estimated values was the 1 Ω measurement which is off due to parasitics between the tips.

Siborg Gains New Manufacturer of LCR-Reader Parts in Taiwan

// June 1st, 2015 // No Comments » // Distributors, LCR-Reader, News

The LCR-Reader from Siborg Systems Inc. is a stripped-down version of the Smart Tweezers line of LCR-meters. Siborg had been working for years creating a device like Smart Tweezers but with a lower price point to appeal to non-professionals. To achieve a lower price, features such as continuity/diode testing, component sorting, semi-automatic offset removal and the ability to change the test signal amplitude were removed.

Though lacking some features, the LCR-Reader not only automatically evaluates for Inductance, Resistance or Capactiance, the device also measures ESR values. Being able to evaluate the ESR is important for electrolytic capacitors. In some equipment, such as e.g. power supplies, with PCB populated with elements,  not all of them in use, no documentation available, the only alternative is to plug in a replacement, time consuming and tedious procedure. Since it is known that for electrolytic capacitros ESR is an issue, it is a good idea to just test them first. It is not even needed to be a precise measurement, because when the elctrolytic  capacitro dries up, its ESR goes from an mOhm range all the way to KOhms. This allows to make quick and easy repairs. Sometimes it just gives a better insight. It works well with any size, down to the smallest parts in new smart phones.

“Smart Tweezers offers the ability for quick and highly accurate evaluations of SMT components,” says Michael Obrecht, the Director of Research and Development at Siborg, “For model ST-5S the basic accuracy is about 0.2%. Our goarl for a few years was to reduce the cost of manufacturing of the device. Recently we introduced the LCR-Reader that is priced at half of the Smart Tweezers ST-5S price and we plan to further reduce the price with the help of Injohnson Precision Industrial.”

Injohnson Precision Industrial Co., Ltd., professionally manufactures a wide range of metal products, precision (CNC) machining, plastic and rubber molded products as well as oil seal and packaging.
