Smart Tweezers Colibri

Devices Bridges the Gap Between Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader

The Colibri was created as the middle device between Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader models; this model offers a few more settings than LCR-Reader models. The Colibri functions the same as any Smart Tweezers or LCR-Reader; the sharp tweezers grasp and hold any component to a 0201 size. The device then determines the type of component and best test mode before testing. The main difference between the devices is Colibri's ability to change the test range frequency.

Users can select the best test range by cycling through the test modes. When users press the button, the device will select a new test mode (ie: Auto > Resistance) then cycle through the test frequencies with each press. (ie: Resistance; Auto > 10 kHz > 1 kHz > 100 Hz)
