Smart Tweezers: A New Generation of Digital Multimeters
Smart Tweezers is an LCR meter in a set of tweezers. Smart Tweezers features a unique patented mechanical and electronic design that integrates a highly accurate digital multimeter with a built-in high precision SMD probes and a display. This light weight device can be easily held by one hand. It is designed for component evaluation on a PCB or a production line, component impedance testing and sorting of SMD components. Smart Tweezers dramatically reduces time necessary to troubleshoot or debug a complex PCB significantly simplifying process of locating a faulty component.
The latest model of Digital Multimeter Smart Tweezers is powered by rechargeable batteries with Inductive Charger that virtually eliminates necessity of battery replacement. If you already own Digital Multimeter Smart Tweezers, you may upgrade your Smart Tweezers for the use of Inductive Charger if you order Charger Assembly Kit .
The integration of SMD probes and the display, combined with an automatic recognition of a measurement mode (R, C, and L) and the best measurement range allow the user to focus on the component under test. As a result, testing, sorting and evaluation of components become much more efficient.
Compare old and new styles, note replaceable tips on the new model.
Two types of the tweezers tips are available, regular and high precision for small size components
Inductance, Capacitance, Resistance
Primary display shows present reading of the main impedance component (L,C, or R). The secondary display (at the top of the LCD screen) shows present reading of the secondary impedance component, such as a parasitic resistance of the capacitor (effective series resistor ESR). The Bar Graph provides an analog indication of the measured value.
The Smart Tweezers is capable of measuring voltage. In the Auto mode, it measures DC voltage up to 8 Volts. In the Trace mode, it shows an oscilloscope-like picture of AC voltage.
Trace mode allows to measure time varying voltages
Pocket Clip protects the tweezers tips and allows to wear Smart Tweezers on a pocket
The Smart Tweezers is designed for a continuity test. The beeper sounds when a resistance reading is below a threshold, or to indicate an open circuit.
Tweezers tips are made of gold-plated non-magnetic stainless steel.
Ergonomic Design and Convenient Controls
Smart Tweezers features a Jog Dial button to select a menu item from the list to selected a function or to change settings. Rotate the Jog Dial button to select an item and push it down to activate the selection.
One hand held Smart Tweezers is ten times lighter than conventional tools yet providing same high accuracy fully automatic measurements
Smart Tweezers features flexible user interface allowing to configure default settings, for example to adjust the screen for a left-hand use
