B&K Precision 300 kHz bench LCR meter with bin sorting functions



Jun. 13, 2016 – B&K Precision describes its model 891 300 kHz bench LCR meter as a “compact, value-priced” LCR meter that can measure inductance, capacitance, and resistance with 0.05-per-cent best impedance accuracy over a fully adjustable test frequency range of 20 Hz to 300 kHz.

With a 300-point linear and logarithmic sweep function, bin comparator, and “versatile” remote control interfaces, the 891 is suitable for characterizing components in laboratory, quality control and small volume production environments, says B&K. The 891 offers a nine-bin comparator sorting function that can be set up in absolute or tolerance mode with pass/fail beep; allowing users to set high and low limits for sorting components within their specifications. High and low limits can also be set for secondary measurement parameters (Q, D, R, G, theta, X, B) using the 891’s additional secondary bin. The 891 features an interface with a menu-driven keypad and a 4.3-in. colour LCD, which displays both primary and secondary measurements along with all test signal parameters on one screen. All sweep and bin sorting results can be displayed on a graph or table.
