New Distributor Brings Canadian Smart Tweezers LCR-Meter to Vietnam
After being available for 10 years, Smart Tweezers reputation of a unique and reliable LCR-meter has grown globally. A new deal between Canadian Siborg Systems Inc. and Thang Long P&T Int. Co. Ltd. bring easier access and shorter wait times for shipping and customs to customers in Vietnam and Asia.
Smart Tweezers are the unique combination of a set of tweezers and an LCR-meter in a lightweight device, replacing the need for conventional bench-type meters for testing and troubleshooting Surface Mount Technology. Just by grasping a component between the tweezers’ gold plated tips Smart Tweezers is able to determine the type of component and the best test parameters to test under. The device then measures for Inductance, Resistance or Capacitance, as well as any ESR values. Ultimately efficient, Smart Tweezers doesn’t require both hands or stopping work to set up for the next measurement, unlike conventional testers.
Thang Long P&T Int. Co. Ltd. is a Vietnam based supplier of SMT line and SMT accessories, industrial equipment and supplies, industrial water pumps, conveyors and lubricant grease.
Th?ng Hoàng from Thang Long P&T says “Smart Tweezers is a good fit among our other products for Surface Mount Technology. Our customers will appreciate a device like Smart Tweezers for working with electronics, it makes testing and repairing PCBs simpler because the device doesn’t need setting up between tests.”
Thang Long P&T is offering Smart Tweezers newest models, the LCR-Reader and the ST-5S. The ST-5S is the newest model in the family, previously the best selling ST-5 but with an updated look. This device combines the high basic accuracy of 0.2% and multiple tolerances, and features such as component sorting, semi-automatic parasitic offset subtraction feature, and continuity and diode testing. The ST-5S has a new joystick like navigation button, which eliminates the need to access the menu.
-Automatic L, C, R and ESR measurements
-Basic accuracy of 0.2%
-Component sorting with 1%, 5%, 10% and 20% tolerance
-Adjustable test signals of 0.5 and 1.0 Vrms
-Continuity and diode testing
-Parasitic offset subtraction feature
-Active and reactive impedance components displayed
The LCR-Reader is Siborgs answer to customers who wanted Smart Tweezers, but without the high price. This device retails for about $200 for hobbyists and non-professionals. To hit this price point, some features were left off the device, such as variable tolerances, continuity and diode testing, parasitic offset, and menu. All test modes are selected automatically and all measurements are done with a 0.5 Vrms signal, which may impede testing ceramic capacitors. The LCR-Reader offers a basic accuracy of 1%, which is about the same as found on the ST-1 and ST-2 models, and has a one button navigation that scrolls through the measurement modes.
-Fully automatic L, C, R and ESR values
-Basic accuracy of 1%
-Best range selection
-Li-Ion battery with micro-USB charger
-1 oz. weight
Smart Tweezers have become an indispensable tool for all work involving SMT, including manufacturing on production lines, repair and maintenance, as well as testing and debugging PCBs. They have been designed to simplify testing components and save time without the need for setting up between evaluations. Visit the Smart Tweezers Blog for all the latest news about the devices.
