An innovative compact device for the automatic identification of most passive components (inductors, capacitors and resistors). Results are displayed on the clear green-mode LCD, showing the component type, measured value and test frequency. For inductors, the DC resistance is also automatically measured.

  • Includes micro-hook probes, batteries and owners manual

Product Reviews

  • "Accurate Analyzer" by zzbuffer on 2/14/2013
    Overall: 4.5 out of 5

    I'm involved in speaker building, so I custom build passive crossovers. I also like to "tinker" with troubleshooting a variety of electronic items. The problem I found with most LCR analyzers that are less than $150 is their accuracy. I often found some with a 5% accuracy or worse. That was unacceptable to me. I purchased this from MCM while they had it on sale. What a deal! This analyzer has proven to be accurate enough for my needs; and it tests inductors and capacitors with consistent accuracy. It's very user friendly, as it analyzes the components automatically, once I have it hooked up to the component. No guess work. It easily stores away in my drawer for safe keeping, and has simple to read and follow instructions. I highly recommend this product for hobbyists and techs alike who need an analyzer that has some good specs and is very portable, perfect for being used in the field as well as a bench setting. Wish I had purchased this analyzer much sooner than I did..
