THE new LED tester from Mentor, represented by ERNI Australia , displays a host of features for fast and uncomplicated testing of standard SMD LEDs.
It has numerous test slots for various LED types including P-LCC-2/P-LCC-4 (Power TOP LEDs, TOP LEDs and three-coloured LEDs), for the sizes 1206/0805/0603 (CHIP LEDs), as well as for SIDE LEDs, Mini-TOP LEDs, Smart LEDs and THT LEDs.
These test slots serve for testing the module properties, such as colour and light intensity. This versatile device operates from mains or battery, has an On/Off switch and a battery low indicator.
Current selection from 1 to 100mA takes place via 10 graded switch positions. The LED test slot cover is made of transparent light guide material. The device automatically sets the polarity of the LEDs.
Other colours, as with Duo LEDs, can be tested simply by lifting and replacing to observe the second colour.
In addition to SMD LEDs, wired LEDs can be compared (series connection of two LEDs) as well as individually tested. Special LEDs can also be tested quickly and precisely via a test plug.
