Component Analyzers / LCR Meter Description
LCR Meters can range in size and functionality. They can typically come in two sizes: Handheld or Benchtop. Handheld LCR Meters typically have test frequencies or 100 Hz, 120 Hz, 1 kHz, 10 kHz, and 100 kHz. Benchtop LCR Meters have stronger test frequencies, usually over the 100 kHz range. Benchtop LCR meters typically use a DC voltage on the AC measuring signal.
Features of component analyzers / lcr meters
LCR Meters typically include a handler interface, versatile connectivity options, variable frequency ranges and measurement parameters. They might include a Kelvin fixture which uses two wires to carry the test current and two independent wires to sense the voltage across the device under test. A back interface allows external bias connection.

How component analyzers / lcr meters work
A Component Analyzer or LCR Meter works by placing the DUT (Device Under Test) under AC voltage stress while the meter measures the voltage and current. The ratio between the voltage and current yields the magnitude of the impedance. In more advanced instruments, the phase angle between the voltage and current can be measured in conjunction with the impedance, capacitance (or inductance), and resistance. Measuring impedance can be done in a variety of ways, one of the most familiar is the nulling type bridge method. Modern instruments have employed software-driven control and processing techniques for measurement.
About component analyzers / lcr meters
A component analyzer, or a LCR Meter is an electronic test equipment piece that is used to measure a component's inductance, capacitance, and resistance (LCR). Component Analyzers or LCR Meters make it easy to measure and plot the impedance of a Device Under Test (DUT) over a range of frequencies.
