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

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.
