Educational Sale on LCR-meters and Other Testers for Students and Educators in the LCR-Reader Store

// March 29th, 2017 // No Comments » // Bluetooth, Devices, LCR-Reader Store, News, Sale, Smart LED Test Tweezers, ST5S-BT, ST5S-BT2

Siborg is now offering a discount until the end of August on all multimeters, testers and accessories in the LCR-Reader store for students, educators and institutions. Discounts apply to quantities purchased.

The sale will apply to LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers LCR- and ESR-meters, including the Smart Tweezers Bluetooth models and LCR-Reader Pro Task Kits.

The LCR-Reader Pro Task Kit includes a calibrated LCR-Reader LCR- and ESR-meter, a set of bent tweezers probes, spare battery, and NIST traceable calibration certificate. Siborg also offers different task kits for both LCR-Reader and Smart Tweezers devices; each kit combines a different amount of accessories and the price reflects a discount opposed to buying each piece separately.

Smart Tweezers Bluetooth has just been updated to include the ability to send device test signals to the Smart Twezers device. Previous models only allowed the device to send test results to PC or apps for Android and iOS. This new update also allows the ability to set custom profiles from either previously measured values or from scratch. These profiles set a specific parameters for components to meet; when a component is measured, the receiving program either marks it as a pass or fail whether it met the parameters.

Siborg is including their other devices available including:

  • LED Test Tweezers that test LEDs and other components using an 12 VDC output and adjustable current rating of 20, 10 and 5 mA. You can also use the device as a set of tweezer-probes for multimeters by connecting it using the included cable.
  • SMD Multimeter Test Tweezers connect to most multimeters for tweezer-probe precision.
  • LCR-Reader/Smart Tweezers Kelvin Probe Connector is a shielded two-wire connector that allows Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader devices be used as full probe stations and measure components larger than would fit between the tweezers’ probes. Siborg has recently added fine and extra-fine pin probes for use with the Kelvin Probe Connector.

Students, educators and educational institutes to visit the LCR-Reader Store from March 28th to August 31st, 2017, to get a discount on all LCR-meters, SMD devices and accessories. To qualify for the discount, students are required to show valid school I.D, while teachers can ship to their institutions or provide a P.O number.

Updated Smart Tweezers Bluetooth Now Allows Data to be Sent and Recieved

// March 24th, 2017 // No Comments » // Bluetooth, Devices, News, ST-5S, ST5S-BT

Bluetooth enabled Smart Tweezers has been updated to include the ability to receive as well as send information from connected devices. Previous models only allowed data to be sent to PC or apps; now, the device can accept settings using custom profiles.

Based on the best-selling Smart Tweezers ST-5S model with extensive menus and high basic accuracy of 0.2%. This model also offers the ability to automatically record measurement data in real time using PC, tablets or smart phones using iOS or Android. The USB receiver stick is required to connect to PC to be used with NI LabView, Windows’ Smart Tweezes Bluetooth Utility and custom made programs.

Devices are able to create custom profiles using previous measurements or from scratch. These profiles allow users to set parameters that components must measure between in order to pass or fail. The receiving program will mark the results as red or green when or if they meet the specifications. These profiles can include the type of component, primary or secondary values. Profiles can also send the device custom settings like test modes or frequencies that are automatically sent to the device.

Measurement data that is sent can be saved to databases or Excel compatible .csv files. This is essential for tasks where quality control requires all measurement values to be recorded.

 

The USB receiver stick usees an FTDI bridge that creates a virtual RS232 serial prot for connection.

The new ST5S-BT2 is available in the LCR-Reader Store.
