Sept. 9, 2016 – B&K Precision has expanded its current 878B and 879B 40,000-count handheld LCR meters with the addition of a 100 kHz model, the 880.
According to the company, this portable LCR meter can measure inductance, capacitance and resistance with 0.1 per cent basic impedance accuracy. Offering many features typically found in bench LCR meters, the 880 promises to provide test frequencies up to 100 kHz, selectable test signal levels, and four-terminal measurement capabilities. Boasting a fast auto ranging function, convenient single-push auto detect mode, and functions such as data recording, tolerance sorting, and relative mode, the 880 is suitable for characterizing components in the field or laboratory environments. Four-terminal shielded configurations can help minimize measurement errors and improve measurement accuracy, notes the company, adding that the 880 offers a four-terminal socket with separate sensing and current leads plus a guard terminal. Standard accessories include an AC adapter with rechargeable 9V battery, mini USB cable, shorting plate, banana-to-alligator test leads, Kelvin clip test leads, and additional tweezer accessory to measure SMD components.
