GW Instek introduces the brand new high precision LCR meter─LCR-6000 series, which, with five models, has a test frequency range extending from 2kHz/20kHz/100kHz/200kHz/300kHz (maximum) and with 0.05% basic accuracy. The compact size design, 2U height and 1/2 rack, is one of the practical features of the series which is the optimum space saver suitable for either bench top or system rack. The compacted LCR-6000 series with abundant features is absolutely the excellent tool for R&D, production test, IQC, etc. on implementing each test stages for passive components.
The LCR-6000 series provides rich functionalities with the compact size. First of all, the entire series adopts 3.5-inch color LCD and features opulent display parameters. In addition to simultaneously displaying setting criteria and measurement results, the series increases two additional monitoring parameters. In other words, there are four parameters, primary/secondary and two monitoring, simultaneously shown on the screen that tremendously enhances the measurement efficiency. The enlarge display mode not only emphasizes the measurement results, but also provides PASS/FAIL judgment to facilitate a rapid and convenient test result.
Convenience is one of the unique features. The LCR-6000 series comes equipped with two zero methods, which are full frequency range and spot. Users, without turning off the power and changing test fixture, can freely change frequency within the provided frequency range to conduct measurements. By so doing, tremendous time can be saved from repeatedly executing zero operation. Additionally, frequency range of the series is consecutive that allows users to input precise frequency value to conduct the most genuine test on components.
The LCR-6000 series also features diverse ancillary measurements to meet the measurement requirements of different materials. For instance, the series provides the automatic level control (ALC) function to satisfy the test voltage requirement of MLCC. For inductive component measurements, the series provides the adjustable test current function and the D.C. resistance measurement function. The optional external bias current adapter (±2.5A) is to satisfy the measurement requirements. With respect to the D.C. bias voltage test for capacitive components requirements, the series allows users to conduct verification measurement on materials by its internal ±2.5V adjustable voltage or via an optional external bias voltage adapter (±45V). Furthermore, 10 steps of listed test functionalities allow users to set testing parameters (either by frequency, or voltage, or current) for each step based on users’ requirements in order to observe the trend of DUT characteristics.
The LCR-6000 series has 10 memory sets defined by panel setting criteria to facilitate users in selecting test criteria and saving time in repeated settings. 10,000 measurement result storage capability can easily record measurement results instantaneously. The USB host allows easy access to recorded results without connecting the series to the PC. The USB host also allows USB to retrieve and save screen so as to assist users in compiling setting guidelines.
For the external control, the LCR-6000 series provides handler interface and collocates with its measurement sorting function (9BIN, AUX: 1BIN) to facilitate the connection with sorting machine so as to sort out the materials. For remote control and measurement result retrieval requirements, the LCR-6000 series provides RS-232Cto assist setting control or measurement result retrieval via the PC commands. Additionally, the free PC software gives users an instant tool to store measurement results that saves time in developing programs.
The brand new compacted LCR-6000 series can effectively improve the limitation of space. Diverse measurement functionalities and display methods are making the series the high CP ratio choice in meeting the requirements of R&D, component assessment for engineering departments, category sorting requirements for component production, and IQC for verification on component specifications.
