Agilent Technologies have introduced the E4981A capacitance meter, a new addition to their LCR family of meters.
Offering a combination of accuracy, speed and a wide measurement range from small to large capacitance, it offers solutions for ceramic capacitor test in electronics manufacturing and system integration.
The Agilent Technologies’ E4981A capacitance meter offers accurate (0.07-percent basic capacitance accuracy) and repeatable measurements with small fluctuation, as well as a fast measurement speed of 2ms at 1 MHz. Its accuracy improves the yield on bin sorting, while its measurement speed translates into improved test throughput.
Another feature of the E4981A capacitance meter is its ability to measure ceramic capacitors from small to large capacitance. It provides 120 Hz, 1 kHz and 1 MHz measurements in one box.
According to Agilent Technologies, with the E4981A capacitance meter, manufacturers and system integrators are able to make fast and accurate ceramic capacitor measurements while realising improved test efficiency and a low overall cost of test.
The E4981A capacitance meter is SCPI-command compatible with other capacitance meters: the 4268A (120 Hz/1 kHz) and 4288A (1 kHz/1 MHz). It features advanced PC connectivity through LAN, USB and GPIB, and an easy-to-use, intuitive user interface with a large display.
