B&K Precision Corporation, represented by Unispan Instruments , has announced the addition of the Model 879 dual display auto ranging LCR meter to its line of test and measurement products.
The new lightweight, battery powered, handheld unit can be used to measure capacitance, resistance (of non-inductive components), and inductance in four test frequency ranges.
The Model 879 is a microprocessor-controlled 19999 count, dual display, handheld LCR meter designed for measuring functions of inductance, capacitance and resistance.
Easy to operate, the Model 879 not only takes measurements in parallel mode, but is also capable of series mode measurements.
The Model 879 provides direct and accurate measurements of inductors, capacitors and resistors with different testing frequencies and is selectable for Auto and manual ranging. The full 4-1/2 digit, backlit LCD display reads values to 19999 on each range.
Convenient front panel pushbuttons and controls include selections such as data hold, maximum, minimum, and average record mode, relative mode, tolerance sorting mode, frequency, and L/C/R selection. The display is backlit for easy reading in dark locations.
The instrument prompts the user when calibration is needed and the dual display shows whether to calibrate with an open or short. Test data can be transferred to a PC through an optional fully isolated optical RS 232C interface.
A tilt stand provides position flexibility for viewing and operating the meter. The over-molding rubber case provides protection for both the user and the meter. A standard 9V battery provides power for the meter.
The meter comes complete with instruction manual, 9V battery, test alligator clips (pair). It is available for immediate delivery.
