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 Tweezers 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 uses an FTDI bridge that creates a virtual RS232 serial port for connection.

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

Bluetooth Enabled Smart Tweezers Now Available in the Store

// July 18th, 2016 // No Comments » // Bluetooth, News, ST-5S

Siborg has begun offering the Smart Tweezers ST5S-BT in the LCR-Reader Store!

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

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.

TeraTerm Screen.jpg(STBT-may032016)The data is represented in a string of comma separated values. Ex: C1.398nF,R3.461kR,10kHz,0.5,S,,,,;

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. The photo to the left shows Terra Term receiving data from ST5S-BT. 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.

Based on the popular ST-5S model, the ST5S-BT offers the same features and 0.2% basic accuracy with the added bonus of Bluetooth.

Features include:

  • Automatic and manual L, C, R, ESR, D, Q and Z measurements
  • 0.2% basic accuracy
  • Variable tolerances of 1%, 5%, 10%, and 20%
  • Continuity/diode/short testing
  • NIST Traceable calibration certificate
  • Extensive menus for customized measurements
  • 1 oz. weight
  • Li-Ion battery with micro-USB charging
  • Bright OLED display
  • 4-way navigation button

Siborg is offering 2 different packages in the LCR-Reader Store for Smart Tweezers ST5S-BT; one with the USB receiver stick and one without.

Please note when purchasing: the receiver stick is required for use with computers and some software.

Siborg to Begin Offer Bluetooth Enabled Smart Tweezers

// April 28th, 2016 // No Comments » // Devices, LCR-Reader, LCR-Reader Store, News, ST5S-BT, Uncategorized

Siborg Systems Inc. will be offering a new model of Smart Tweezers with Bluetooth capabilities in mid-May, the ST5s-BT.

This is the first upgrade to the ST-5S, which will allow users to remotely log their measurement results with a compatible device. This will be more efficient by letting users keep track of their previously measured components rather than re-measuring each time.

The Bluetooth is connected using a USB receiver stick that establishes a virtual serial port. Measurements results are sent using a string of comma separated values that represent the measurement results.

Ex. C1.398nF,R3.461kR,10kHz,0.5,S,,,,
C(main impedance value type)1.398nF(main impedance value),R(secondary impedance)3.461kR(secondary impedance value),10kHz(test frequency),0.5(test signal level),S(measurement mode, in this case, serial), followed by 4 reserved values.

This information is then sent to the port and is received by any communication software.

TeraTerm Screen.jpg(STBT-may032016)For example, the photo shows the free Terra Term software receiving data. This data can be save into a file or documented. If the LabView software is being used, it can process and store the data in a database as needed.

The Bluetooth connection will be supported by an NI VISA instrument driver in the NI LabView® environment. Eventually the device will have Apps for the Windows, Android and iOS operating systems.

Smart Tweezers ST-5S is a hand held LCR-meter with high accuracy and plenty of features for specific tasks. These features include: fully automatic LCR and ESR measurements, variable tolerances and test signal ranges, basic accuracy of 0.2%, component sorting, diode and continuity testing, and offers a 4-way joystick-like-navigation that allows basic settings to be changed quickly on the default screen.

The new ST5S-BT will be available starting mid-May from Siborg’s LCR-Reader Store and Amazon sales channels in USA, Canada and Europe.
