B&K Precision has expanded its 878B and 879B 40,000-count hand-held LCR meters with the addition of a new 100kHz model, the 880. This new portable LCR meter can measure inductance, capacitance, and resistance with 0.1% basic impedance accuracy. Offering many features typically found only in bench LCR meters, the 880 provides test frequencies up to 100kHz, selectable test signal levels, and 4-terminal measurement capabilities.

With a fast auto ranging function, convenient single-push auto detect mode, and versatile functions such as data recording, tolerance sorting, and relative mode, the 880 is suitable for characterising components in the field or laboratory environments.

Four-terminal shielded configurations can help minimize measurement errors and improve measurement accuracy.

Using 4-terminal Kelvin test leads can help mitigate the effect of lead impedances and contact resistances.

The 880 offers a 4-terminal socket with separate sensing and current leads plus a guard terminal.

The 880 features a dual display with 40,000-count and 10,000-count resolution for primary and secondary measurements, respectively.

Selectable test frequencies include 100Hz, 120Hz, 1kHz, 10kHz, and 100kHz along with selectable test levels of 0.3Vrms, 0.6Vrms, and 1Vrms.

In addition, the LCR meter provides DC resistance measurement capability.

Whereas many manufacturers of LCR meters typically only include a few accessories as standard, 880 users can expect a full set of useful accessories supplied with the instrument.

Standard accessories include an AC adapter with rechargeable 9 V battery, mini USB cable, shorting plate, banana-to-alligator test leads, Kelvin clip test leads, and additional tweezer accessory for convenient measurement of SMD components.

Available immediately, B&K Precision's 880 100kHz hand-held LCR meter comes with a 3-year warranty
