Saelig Company now offers the ST-5S Smart Tweezers, from Ideal-Tek, for on-board inductance, capacitance, and resistance measurements and PCB testing. The tweezers are a helpful solution for quickly testing and identifying surface mount devices, as well as for troubleshooting complex electronic PCBs. The tweezers unique mechanical and electronic design connects a pair of precise gold-plated tweezers and a digital LCR meter in a lightweight, compact, battery-powered instrument. The device automatically detects L, C, or R measurements and picks the correct measurement range and test frequency for high accuracy readings. Component type, value, and more detailed component analysis, including Z and ESR, are all presented on the instrument's OLED display.
The device provides users with an easy way to sort tiny, loose components. Precise tips reliably contact with the smallest SMD components and take measurements from board-mounted devices. The device can also be employed to test conventional components with wire leads that may be too short to insert into conventional test terminals. The integrated, insulated measurement head enables the operator to use one hand (left or right) for measurements to simplify probe placement tasks.
The device is for manufactured for professional engineers and is supplied with a NIST-traceable calibration certificate.
