B&K Precision has enhanced two of its handheld LCR meters. Models 878B and 879B add increased and improved features such as wider measurement ranges as well as higher accuracy and speed, offering more precise and reliable measurements of inductance, capacitance, and resistance. The new models Updates include greater flexibility with a variety of measurement capabilities: 0.5% accuracy, wide frequency and voltage test ranges, and three tolerance modes with visible or audible alerts for batch component sorting. Both units can measure D (dissipation), Q (quality factor) and transfer all measurement results to a PC via USB interface using the provided logging software. Alternatively, users could write a custom program and control the meters remotely via SCPI commands. The devices feature 40,000-count plus 10,000-count dual displays.
