Digital Multimeter Smart Tweezers: One Touch LCR Meter

Smart Tweezers

Smart Tweezers are a high-precision digital LCR and Voltage meter in a set of tweezers. They feature a highly accurate digital multimeter integrated with high precision SMD probes and a display. Easy one-hand operation makes it very convenient for component evaluation on a PCB or a production line, component impedance testing and sorting of SMD components. Smart Tweezers is an ultimate tool to troubleshoot or debug a complex PCB, significantly simplifying the process of locating a faulty component.

An alternative model of Digital Multimeter Smart Tweezers is powered by rechargeable batteries with an Inductive Charger that virtually eliminates necessity of battery replacement. This model is highly advisable if you use Smart Tweezers on a regular basis for more than 2 hours a day. If you already own Digital Multimeter Smart Tweezers, you may upgrade your Smart Tweezers for the use of Inductive Charger if you order the Charger Assembly Kit. Smart Tweezers STIC
Integration of high-precision SMD probes and the display, combined with an automatic recognition of the type of component being measured (L, C, or R) and the best measurement range allow the user to concentrate on the tested component. As a result, testing, sorting and evaluation of components is done much quicker, Smart Tweezers does this job just in one touch.

Smart Tweezers Measurement of Inductance, Capacitance and Resistance

Once Smart Tweezers probes make a contact with a component, you see the reading of the main impedance component (L,C, or R) on the Primary display. The secondary display (at the top of the LCD screen) shows value of the secondary impedance component, such as a parasitic resistance of the capacitor (effective series resistor ESR). The Bar Graph provides an analog indication of the measured main impedance value.

Smart Tweezers Measurement of Voltage

The Smart Tweezers is capable of measuring voltage activated by the slide-switch located at the left-low corner of the Smart Tweezers unit. In the Auto mode, Smart Tweezers measure DC voltage up to 8 Volts. In the Trace mode, it shows an oscilloscope-like picture of an AC voltage.

Smart Tweezers Continuity/Open Test

The Smart Tweezers is designed for a continuity test. The beeper sounds when a resistance reading is below a threshold, or to indicate an open circuit.

Smart Tweezers Durable Probes

Tweezers tips are made out of gold-plate, non-magnetic, stainless steel.

Smart Tweezers Design and Controls

Smart Tweezers Jog Dial button allows to select a function or to change the settings. Push the Jog Dial button left/right to select an item and press it to activate the selection.
