LCR-Reader-R3: Versatile Digital Multimeter from Siborg Systems Inc. One year after a year releasing LCR-Reader-R2, Siborg has updated their high frequency testing device and released the LCR-Reader-R3. The new model features the same record high 0.1% basic accuracy and unrivalled measurement ranges along with Diode/LED tests, signal generator, continuity/open testing, 100 kHz test frequency and more.

Most importantly, LCR-Reader-R3 is the first ever professional LCR-meter offering multilingual interface supporting English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Chinese versions.

LCR-Reader-R3 combines tweezer probes with a powerful LCR/ESR-meter that is able to determine the type of component and best test parameters before measuring with a 0.1% basic accuracy. The device will display the main impedance value, any secondary values such as Rs, ESR, Q or D, component type and test parameters used instantly on a bright backlit LCD display. The 1.4 oz. device is very portable and ideal for fieldwork.

R3 offers a wide range of test features and modes, including LED/diode tests, component sorting, short/continuity testing, signal generator, and more. One of the most appealing features is the ability to test using 100 kHz test frequency which allows for a 0.001 pF resolution for capacitance and 0.1 nH for inductance measurements.

As for internally, R3 now offers three test signal levels: 0.1, 0.5 and 1 Vrms. Being able to test at 1 Vrms is very important for accuracy while testing ceramic capacitors. The signal source resistance is set to 200 Ohms allowing fo good accuracy while testing smaller resistances and inductances and larger capacitances. The LED test voltage is 3.2 Volts.

When used with LCR-Reader Kelvin Probe Connector; it allows users to use the R3 as a low-frequency probe station and test impedances of various nodes on a PCB.

A few features that set R3 apart from similar devices including: testing Large and Super Large Capacitances up to 1 F; a wide range of test frequencies (100, 120 Hz, 1, 10, and 100 kHz). Electrolytic capacitors are measured at 120 Hertz while ESR at 100 kHz according to regular electrolytic capacitor test conditions.
