Said to be easy to use and calibrate, the Protek Z9216 LCR meter simplifies automated testing and sorting by measuring resistors, inductors, and capacitors at a 20x per second rate with 0.05% accuracy. Component Q values and dissipation are also displayed via front-panel LCD readouts. For remote operation, the instrument is equipped with RS-232, GPIB and Handler Port interfaces. The unit accepts optional SMD tweezers, BNC fixture adapters and Kelvin clips and stores and recalls nine instrument setups and has five test frequencies from 100 Hz to 100 kHz. Measurement averaging is from 2 to 10. Other key features include open and short circuit compensation, accurate zeroing, built-in calibration procedures and binning capabilities. Key specs include 0.05% basic accuracy. The unit operates on 120/220 vac at 50/60 Hz. It consumes 20W and operates from zero to 50°C at less than 80% relative humidity. The compact instrument measures just 4.25" H x 14.25" W x 14.5" D and weighs only 12.76 lb. The unit is available from stock through the firm's distribution network.
