Siborg is Now Offering Calibration Certificates with Every LCR-Reader

// July 29th, 2016 // No Comments » // calibration, LCR-Reader, LCR-Reader Store, News

Siborg worked with the Institute of Automation and Electrometry at the Russian Academy of Sciences in creating a new calibration fixture for the newer models of Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader. The previous fixture was unable to handle the full measurement range of the devices.

lcrcalAfter completion, Siborg sent the calibration fixture to one of Canada’s leading calibration houses for verification. With this verfication, Siborg was able to begin issuing NIST Traceable Calibration Certificates for LCR-Reader; the ability to periodically calibrated LCR-Reader was an issue with professionals that require their test equipment annually.

Now, Siborg is offering certificates with every LCR-Reader in the LCR-Reader Store.

Siborg has also added the LCR-Reader Professional to their growing list of task kits. The LCR-Reader Professional comes with a pre-calibrated device, calibration certificate, spare bent probes, an extra battery and charger.

The LCR-Reader Store has lots to offer for customers; LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers task kits: pre-bundled devices and accessories that offer customers a deal compared to buying each piece separately.

  • SMD Multimeter Test Tweezers: add tweezer-probe functionality to multimeters
  • LED Test Tweezers: test LEDs, switches, fuses, etc. with tweezer-precision, also includes a connector cable to be used with multimeters as probes
  • LCR-Reader Probe Connector: Turn LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers into a probe station for complete PCB probing; also allows the device to measure components that will not fit between the tweezers’ tips.
  • The newest product in Siborg’s lineup is the Smart Tweezers ST5S-BT that instantly records measurement results over Bluetooth connection. See more about Smart Tweezers ST5S-BT.

Siborg Systems Releases New LCR-Reader Probe Station

// July 14th, 2016 // No Comments » // LCR-Reader, LCR-Reader Store, News, Smart Tweezers

Siborg has recently added the LCR-Reader Probe Station to their LCR-Reader Store inventory.

The LCR-Reader Probe Station allows LCR-Reader LCR- and ESR- meters to preform full PCB probing and measure components outside of the tweezers’ allowed sizes.

The 60 cm shielded two-wire connection virtually eliminates parasitics from the wires, is easy to install and comes with seven attachments. Including a spade connector, alligator clips, long and short pin-probes, and 4 mm multimeter jack plugs.

Easy to install and simple to use; remove one of LCR-Reader’s gold-plated tweezer probes and replace with the small PCB on the connector cable, making sure that the gold strips on the flex cable and the connector match up. Tighten the screws, select the best attachment for the task at hand and start measuring. The attachments screw into the Probe Station’s universal connector.

The Probe Station works with LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers models with removable tips.

The device is now available in the LCR-Reader Store for $24.99 US.

Siborg Releases New Calibration Fixture and Certificates for LCR-Reader

// April 1st, 2016 // No Comments » // calibration, LCR-Reader, LCR-Reader Store, Maintenance, News, Smart Tweezers, Smart Tweezers Maintenance

LCR-Reader Calibration Fixture

LCR-Reader being calibrated by the new fixture. When a device is connected, it will show the measurement values on its’ display. These values are then compared to the known values within the calibration fixture.

Siborg has been working over the past year with the Institute of Automation and Electrometry at the Russian Academy of Sciences in creating a Calibration Fixture that will allow periodic calibration of all models of Smart Tweezers, and, most importantly, the LCR-Reader. The calibration fixture was then sent to Navair Technologies in Toronto, Canada to be verified. With this verification from Navair, Siborg will soon be able to include calibration certificates with LCR-Reader, which was a main hindrance in companies using the device.

The calibration unit utilizes a 4-wire connection which has been found to reduce noise between connections and the PCB within the calibration fixture.

Previous calibration fixtures used a 2-wire connector which worked well for older models of Smart Tweezers, including the ST-1, ST-2 and ST-3. The 2-wire connector was not able to handle the measurements within the LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers measurement ranges. Due to parasitics, it could not measure lower values of capacitance and inductance and higher values of resistance. Therefore, the 2-wire calibration fixture was only able to measure mid-range values.

The calibration fixture uses 14 known components that lay within the range of measurements. When a device is connected, the fixture will signal a different component with each button push. The measurement values are instantly displayed on the LCR-Reader or Smart Tweezers‘ display which can then be compared to the known values of the components to determine accuracy.

“The new fixture makes it much easier to provide periodic traceable calibration now that it has been certified by Navair Technologies. We have now completed two versions of the calibration fixture using both 4-wire and 2-wire connections. The 4-wire is best suited for newer models, including the recent LCR-Reader. The 2jig-wire is best for the older models, including the ST-1, ST-2, ST-3 and STIC. These older models used a 2-wire connection in the handles of the device and could not be properly tested with the 4-wire terminal. This new calibration unit will allow all models to be tested and calibrated.” says the Director of Research and Development at Siborg, Michael Obrecht.

Soon, the calibration certificates will be available in the LCR-Reader Store; there will be 2 types to choose from: a basic calibration certificate that ensures the device has been calibrated, or a more detailed format that shows the measurement results compared to the known values.

Siborg Systems Inc. is extending their Cyber Week Sale in the LCR-Reader Store. The sale offers 10% off all devices and task kits. Starting at 12:00 am Monday, January 25th, 2016 and runs until 11:59 pm EST Sunday, January 31st, 2016.

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.

LCR-Reader Doubles Sales

// May 12th, 2015 // No Comments » // Distributors, LCR-Reader, News

After being on the market for a little more than a year, the LCR-Reader has quickly become Siborg System Inc.’s best selling device, doubling that of Smart Tweezers.

“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 using a manual test mode on the ST-5S, the latest model of Smart Tweezers.” says the Director at Siborg, Michael Obrecht.

LCR-Reader’s sales are partially due to availability; the device can be bought from Siborg Systems Inc. on Amazon in the US, UK, Canada, Italy, Germany, France and Spain. It is also available from many distributors across the globe, including:

LCR-Reader Update; Colibri

// January 4th, 2015 // No Comments » // LCR-Reader, News

After a full year of availability, the LCR-Reader from Siborg Systems Inc. is getting an update. The newer model, the LCR-Reader Colibri.

The Colibri offers the same high basic accuracy of 1% and features as the LCR-Reader with fully automatic measurements. The main difference between the two models, is the ability to change the test frequency manually. Unlike the LCR-Reader which only the test mode is changed when the button is pressed; the Colibri cycles through the modes with different frequency selection. IE: Automatic, L, 1kHz (default), 100 Hz, 10kHz, C, 1kHz, 100 Hz, 10kHz, etc. The device is also able to be reset by holding the button down for a few seconds.  The Colibri also comes with precision tips; slightly sharper gold-plated tips that allow for a more focused grasp on components.
