Siborg Gets Results from Navair about Calibration Jig

// July 31st, 2015 // 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 measurmeent 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.
