Smart Tweezers ST5S-BT allows users to remotely record their measurement values in real time.

This new model offers all the same features and functions found on the popular Smart Tweezers ST-5S model, but with the added benefit of being able to record all measurement values remotely via Bluetooth.

Using the USB receiver stick, the Smart Tweezers ST5S-BT opens a virtual serial port that can be received by any communication software such as NI LabView® or Tera Term free software. Currently, the USB stick is required for use with computers and NI LabView®; Android devices are able to receive data without. Eventually there will be dedicated apps for iOS, Windows and Android.

This string is explained as: main impedance value and type, secondary value and type, test frequency, test signal level, measurement mode, and 4 reserved values.

Depending on the software used, the measurement values can be saved to a file, or in cases like NI LabView®, the data can be saved to a database to be processed later.
