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.
