Siborg Now offering SMD Multimeter Test Tweezers

Siborg's new SMD Multimeter Test Tweezers are an attachment for pre-existing multimeters. Testing small components using long wire leads may hinder work; Siborg's SMD Multimeter Test Tweezers allow users to use tweezers as probes. It's as easy as plugging them in!

LCR-Reader Calibration Fixture

Siborg Creates Calibration Fixture for LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers

With help from the Russian Academy of Sciences in Novosibirsk, Siborg has created a new calibration fixture that can provide NIST traceable certificates for LCR-Reader and all models of Smart Tweezers. Read more about the new fixture here

New! LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers Task Kits: Available Now in the LCR-Reader Store

Siborg Systems Inc. has recently redesigned the LCR-Reader Store with a new look! The new design feels more akin to other online shopping with the ability to read the product details before adding items to the cart. Siborg has also added new 'Task Kits'. These kits are preassembled combinations of a device with spare parts, ie: a Smart Tweezers ST-5S with precision tips and bent tips, or an LCR-Reader with charger and spare battery. Each kit offers customers a better price than buying each piece separately. Visit the newly redesigned LCR-Reader Store!

New Smart LED Test Tweezers

LED Tweezers Siborg Systems Inc. has made the new Smart LED Test Tweezers available

This device makes testing LEDs and other small components simple. The 15 cm long device features sharp gold-plated phosphor bronze tweezers and a multifunction tester that can also be connected to an LCR-meter. The device features a 12VDC output with variable current ratings for testing LEDs; while also being able to test for shorts in circuitry, switches, fuses, wire connection and more. Find out more about the Smart LED Test Tweezers here

New Bent-Tip Design

benttipsbenttips A new gold-plated bent-tip option has been made available as an exta for both Smart Tweezers and LCR-Readers. The bent design is more ergonomic to use as they meet components mounted on PCBs at a more comfortable angle compared to the straight tips. Both devices will still come equipped with the straight tips with the bent design as an optional add-on.

Taitronics: 41st Taipei International Electronics Show

taitronics Siborg Systems Inc. is taking LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers LCR-meters to the Taitronics in Taipei. This will be the first time at the exhibition for Smart Tweezers, and a foreseeable great fit among the other products. Visit us at booth J0301!

A Simpler Way for Testing SMD Comonents

Smart Tweezers™ are a handheld LCR meter that provides users with a simpler method of identifying and evaluating Surface Mount Devices and troubleshooting complex electronic systems. The unique design combines a set of precision gold-plated tweezers and a powerful, yet small digital LCR-meter in a lightweight device. Powered by a Li-Ion battery, Smart Tweezers can identify the type of component and measure for Inductance, Resistance, Capacitance, and ESR values with no set-up.

  • Built-in high-precision LCR probe
  • Convinient one-hand operation
  • Ideal for Surface Mount Devices
  • Automated component identification
  • Automated test range selection
  • Manual C, R, L, Z and ESR modes
  • Adjustable test signal levels
  • Swiss-made precise test leads
  • Diode Polarity/Short testing
  • Secondary D, Q and ESR parameters
  • Portable and ergonomic design
  • Built-in Li-Ion battery

Testing Surface Mount Devices

Electronic manufacturing has begun using Surface Mount Technology, where small components (referred to as Surface Mount Devices or SMDs) are mounted directly to a PCB, opposed to the older through-hole method, where wire leads were threaded through holes on the PCB. SMDs are generally very small and may or may not have wire leads or other distinguishing characteristics, making them more difficult to tell apart from one another. This may lead to lost component values, or confusion between components. Smart Tweezers offer users an easier way to sort and identify these components, as well as perform on-board measurements and debugging. The gold-plated tips are Swiss made by IDEAL-TEK S.A. and provide a reliable contact on even the smallest component, either loose or mounted. Smart Tweezers are also able to test conventional components that may have wire leads that are too short to fit in test terminals.

Fully Automatic Evaluations

Measurements are done faster using Smart Tweezers™. The automatic identification function eliminates unnecessary trial and error, thus saving time. When in contact with an SMD, Smart Tweezers automatically determine the type of component, determines the proper measurement range and test frequency, and measures for L, C or R with parallel and series mode. The evaluation results are then instantaneously available on the display, as well as the component type, test parameters and more detailed component analysis such as Z and ESR.The bright OLED display instantly shows the values, the component type and test parameters used, as well as a more detailed component analysis, such as Z and ESR values.

Lightweight and Ergonomic

Smart Tweezers are easy to use with just one hand, and without the need to set-up between measurements, users can focus on the task at hand. Sorting, testing and troubleshooting become more efficient and cost effective. The handles on the device are a 4-wire connection and shielded to assure low capacitance and resistance offset while measuring.

Wide Spectrum of Additional Functions

  • Smart Tweezers LCR meter test various component types, including secondary components for Dissipation Factor (D), Quality Factor (Q) as well as other functions that result in a more detailed component analysis.
  • The built-in Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) mode helps better understand the inherent resistance, a behaviour typically found in capacitors across selected frequencies.
  • A Diode mode allows Smart Tweezers to test diode polarity and indicates if it is short.
  • A Continuity detector sounds a beeper for resistance that reads below the set thresholds. This function also allows users to easily seek out a shorted conductor within a circuit.
  • Manual modes allows the user to test for specific parameters such as L, C, R, Z or ESR. this more also improves component type identification for in-circuit testing.
  • Variable test signal output from 0.25 to 1.0 Vrms allow test precision for different situations, such as in-circuit evaluations and loose leaded ceramic capacitors.
  • Visible and audible tolerance modes for performing component sorting.
  • A Math Null function allows users to store pre-measured offsets and improve measurement accuracy.
