 LCR Meter - Smart Tweezers, RCL Meter, Multimeter, SMD Component Identifier

Advance Devices, Inc. provides an expert solution for identifying, measuring, testing, and troubleshooting surface mounted devices (SMD) and leaded two-terminal devices - Smart Tweezers- a digital LCR meter in a set of tweezers.

Smart Tweezers identify both marked and unmarked SMD components with easy probing of all types of passive SMD and through-hole devices. The instrument measures capacitance, inductance and resistance with speed and precision along with secondary parameters such as capacitor ESR (ESR Meter). Q (quality factor) and D (dissipation factor) and Z (impedance) measurements are also provided.

Smart Tweezers LCR meter proves itself as an indispensable tool for SMT component sorting, in-circuit and on-board impedance testing and product debugging.

“When you consider the functionality, the accuracy (traceable to NIST), the ease of use, Smart Tweezers is a great instrument and a solid investment, in my opinion.”

Charles A. Schuler,
author of  the “Electronics Principles and Applications” book

“The Smart Tweezers let me instantly find the value of the capacitors I was using without resorting to a magnifying glass or expensive test equipment. The tweezers also provided a quick measurement of the loss and Q factors of the components, which let me design a better-performing circuit [...]  My partner and I are both thrilled that we had access to the smart tweezers.”

ECE 445, Beckham Institute, University of Illinois

We are proud that



and other R&D-intensive companies, agencies and production sites use Smart Tweezers LCR meter
