New Bent-Tips

// October 13th, 2015 // No Comments » // LCR-Reader, News, Smart Tweezers Maintenance, ST-5S

Siborg has recently made new gold-plated bent-tips available for Smart Tweezers and LCR-Readers. This new design is more ergonomic compared to the straight-tip option. The bent-tips make it easier to reach components already on a PCB while holding the device at a more horizontal angle.

All devices will still be equipped with straight tips with the bent-tips as a optional add-on.

Siborg Finalizes Universal Calibration Jig

// July 31st, 2015 // No Comments » // LCR-Reader, News

With help from the Institute of Automation and Electrometry at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Novosibirsk, Siborg Systems Inc. has created a universal jig that can calibrate all models of Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader LCR-meters. Siborg has sent the jig to Navair Technologies in Toronto, one of the leading calibration houses in Canada. Navair will be able to grant the jig its own NIST Traceable Calibration Certificate.

The jig itself cannot create a calibration certificate, but is helpful for periodic calibration, or to troubleshoot devices that have malfunctioned or failed.

The jig utilizes a set of 14 known components of different types and within the Smart Tweezers measurement ranges. A previous version of the jig used a 4-wire Kelvin probe to connect to the LCR-meters; this has been changed to use a 2-wire connections. The 2-wire connection means that the jig can calibrate all models of Smart Tweezers ever made.  When the jig is connected to a device, it will cycle through the components; the measurement results are displayed on the Smart Tweezers’ display which can then be compared to the known values of the jig.

“We have also decided to create two versions of the Jig for both 4-wire and 2-wire terminals. The jig is helpful in that it can be used for periodical traceable calibration if the jig itself is calibrated. The 4-wire jig is best for models after Smart Tweezers ST-3, including the LCR-Reader. The 2-wire jig is used for models before and including the ST-3.” says the Director at Siborg, Michael Obrecht.

The 4-wire Kelvin probe that was initially used minimizes noise generated by the connections on the PCB, but does not cater to older models. The 2-wire jig is best suited for the Smart Tweezers ST-1, ST-2 and ST-3 where the 4-wire connection wasn’t used in the handles.

Along with the jig, Siborg sent 4 randomly selected LCR-Readers to Navair. The results that were sent back were better than expected; the LCR-Reader was thought to have a 1% basic accuracy, where as the measurement results showed closer to 0.5%.

Siborg Gets Results from Navair about Calibration Jig

// July 31st, 2015 // No Comments » // LCR-Reader, News, ST-5S, Uncategorized

Siborg Systems Inc., with help from the Institute of Automation and Electrometry at the Russian Academy of Sciences (Novosibirsk) have created a Calibration Jig for the Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader models. This jig was sent to Navair in Toronto, Ontario, one of the leading calibration houses in Canada. The results have made their way back to Siborg with surprising results.

4 Randomly selected LCR-Reader units were sent for testing and calibration. Siborg had been claiming that the LCR-Reader had a basic accuracy of about 1%, which turned out to be underestimated; almost all the measurement values were closer to 0.5%. The only measurement to be out of the estimated range was the 1 Ohm, which was slightly higher because of parasitics between the tips. All the measurement results can be seen on the LCR-Readers’s website.

The Calibration Jig does not in itself create NIST traceable certificate, and must have a certificate itself; but this device will allow users to sporadically check the accuracy of their devices or to troubleshoot in cases of failure or malfunctions.

Siborg Gains New Manufacturing Partner in Taiwan

// June 1st, 2015 // No Comments » // LCR-Reader, News, ST-5S, Uncategorized

For years, Siborg had been in development to create a device that is more accessible by non-professionals. By removing features found on the Smart Tweezers LCR-meters, a device with half the price of Smart Tweezers was created: the LCR-Reader.

Siborg has been continuously working on lowering the manufacturing costs further; a new deal with Taiwan based Injohnson Precision Industrial Co. Ltd. has been made which will help Siborg lower manufacturing costs.

“Smart Tweezers offers the ability for quick and highly accurate evaluations of SMT components,” Says the R&D Director at Siborg, Michael Obrecht, “For model ST-5S, the basic accuracy is about 0.2%. Our goal for a few years was to reduce the cost of manufacturing of the device.Recently we introduced the LCR-Reader that is priced at half of the Smart Tweezers ST-5S price and we plan to further reduce the price with the help of Injohnson Precision Industrial.”

Injohnson Precision Industrial Co., Ltd. professionally manufactures a wide range of metal products, precision (CNC) machining, plastic and rubber modeled products as well as oil seal and packaging. They have over 35 years of professional experience and are constantly devoting themselves to improve technology and create new innovative products. This is the basis of their success that has yielded present plans for a new factory and office in the People’s Republic of China. With this factory, they can better and faster satisfy customer requirements. Injohnson offers small and large orders, high quality, competitive prices, prompt delivery and good service. Their products can be custom-made and designed according to requested specifications.

LCR-Reader Doubles Sales Worldwide

// May 12th, 2015 // No Comments » // Distributors, LCR-Reader, News, ST-5S

After slightly over a year of availability, the LCR-Reader’s sales have almost doubled those of Smart Tweezers in North America, Asia and Europe.

“We are quite happy with the sales progress made by LCR-Reader. It started slow ,but due to lowprice 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 manual test modes from ST-5S, the latest model of Smart Tweezers” says Michael Obrecht, the director at Siborg Systems Inc.

LCR-Reader’s success can be contributed to its availability around the globe, including on Amazon in the US, UK, Canada, Spain, Italy, Germany and France. It is also available from many distributors, including:
