FOUND LCR Meter wanted with ESR
« on: June 30, 2014, 04:24:34 PM »
Hi , I am looking for an LCR Meter with ESR function for searching bad caps in circuits . Would be nice if it has 100 kHz frequency measurement as well .

As far as I know, their is no combination LCR/ESR meter. If you are simply looking to find and replace bad capacitors, you will probably find that an ESR meter is more useful than an LCR meter. The Blue ESR meter is very popular: http://shop.anatekcorp.com/index.phpsrc=directory&view=products&srctype=detail&refno=2&category=Component%20Analyzers

However, an inexpensive $25 meter will work just fine. Most of these inexpensive meters will also measure capacitance, but this feature is not essential, since most mid-range multimeters have a capacitance range: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-12864-LCD-Transistor-Tester-Capacitance-ESR-Meter-Diode-Triode-MOS-NPN-LCR-/281282973310?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item417dc58e7e

As for frequency measurement, again, most mid-range multimeters will be able to measure 100kHz and beyond.

DE-5000 LCR meter has also an ESR meter.


This is the most stupidest forum btw, it asks you for so much verifications and stupid questions at registering and forum posting like you are on some CIA or FBI forum.

That's because you are new.  It only asks for the first few posts.  Every Simple Machines Forum that I've used has had the same procedure.

When you run a forum and constantly have to deal with spammers it a small measure to make life easier....
Play, discover, learn and enjoy! (and don't be scared to make mistakes along the way!)

As I know if the measuring voltage is small enough then a meter can measure ESR in-circuit.

There is a cheap but wide range and accurate enough LCR 2.9 bridge meter kit measuring L/C/R/Z/Rs/ESR/X/Q/D/Phase (C/ESR in-circuit) with 100Hz/1kHz/10kHz sine test signals found at http://lcr.is-best.net/en/

An LCR meter may be a kind of electronic equipment accustomed live the inductance (L), capacitance (C), associated resistance (R) of an electronic component[1]. within the easier versions of this instrument the ohmic resistance was measured internally and reborn for the show to the corresponding capacitance or inductance worth. Readings ought to be fairly correct if the condenser or inductance device below check doesn't have a big resistive part of the ohmic resistance.
