Keysight Technologies today introduced three low-frequency options for its E4982A LCR meter. With these new options, the E4982A is suited for RF inductor, coil, and EMI filter manufacturers that are required to perform impedance testing at various frequencies.
Today’s smart phones and other electronic equipment often utilize components such as inductors and EMI filters. Ensuring these passive components operate as expected in the real-world requires impedance testing during production, as well as during quality assurance.
Keysight’s new E4982A LCR meter options allow manufacturers to easily test passive components at desired frequencies. The options cover the 1-MHz to 300-MHz (Opt. 030), 500-MHz (Opt. 050), and 1-GHz (Opt. 100) frequency ranges. These new frequency range options complement the E4982A’s existing 3-GHz measurement capability (Opt. 300). Frequency upgrade options are also available.
“Impedance testing is a critical step in the manufacture of passive components,” said Akira Nukiyama, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Component Test Division. “Performing this testing cost-effectively is just as critical. With our new low-frequency LCR meter options, manufacturers now have the ability to perform the required testing in a highly cost-effective manner.”
Keysight’s E4982A LCR meter is used in passive component manufacturing where impedance testing is required. The meter features high measurement speed, 0.8% basic accuracy with unparalleled measurement repeatability, and a wide impedance measurement range in all frequency options. Its functions make it suitable for use in manufacturing, R&D and quality assurance.
Keysight’s new low-frequency options (Option 030, 050 and 100) for the E4982A LCR meter are available now. Pricing is dependent on the selected configuration. The base prices are as follows:
- E4982A-030, 1 MHz to 300 MHz: $16,012;
- E4982A-050, 1 MHz to 500 MHz: $18,801; and
- E4982A-100, 1 MHz to 1 GHz: $27,375.
