Siborg Gains New Manufacturer of LCR-Reader Parts in Taiwan

// June 1st, 2015 // 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.”
