BK PRECISION 878A Handheld LCR Meter

The BK Precision 878A is a 19,999-count L/C/R hand-held meter is a special microprocessor-controlled meter for measuring functions of inductance, capacitance and resistance. The 878A meter provides direct and accurate measurements of inductors, capacitors and resistors with different testing frequencies. It is selectable for auto and manual ranging. The test data can be transferred to PC through an optional full isolated optical RS232C interface. Specifications. Parameters Measured: L/C/R/D/Q. Measuring Circuit Mode: Inductance (L) –Defaults to series mode, Capacitance/ Resistance (C/R) -Defaults to parallel mode. Displays: L/C/R - Maximum display 19999, D/Q - Maximum display 999 (Auto Range). Ranging Mode: Auto & Manual. Resistance (Parallel mode) Test Frequency 120 Hz, 1 KHz Range: 20 ohm to 10 M-ohm. Capacitance (Parallel mode) Test Frequency 120 Hz Range: 20 nF to 10 mF. Capacitance (Parallel mode) Test Frequency 1 KHz Range: 2000 pF to 1 mF.

*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the BK PRECISION 878A. Price does not in most cases include measurement performance data. Pricing does include NIST traceable calibration and issue of a calibration certificate and calibration label. Pricing may vary slightly due to volume and location of laboratory supporting calibration. Volume pricing may apply. On-site fees may apply depending on logistics, location and volume of work to be completed during the visit.

Crest Factor
Crest factor or peak-to-average ratio (PAR) is a measurement of a waveform, calculated from the peak amplitude of the waveform divided by the RMS value of the waveform

Linearity is the relative difference between the displayed power ratio, Dx/D0, and the actual (true) power ratio Px/P0 caused by changing the displayed power level from the reference level, D0, to an arbitrary displayed level, Dx.

Phase Noise
Phase noise is the frequency domain representation of rapid, short-term, random fluctuations in the phase of a waveform, caused by time domain instabilities. Phase noise (L(f)) is typically expressed in units of dBc/Hz, representing the noise power relative to the carrier contained in a 1 Hz bandwidth centered at a certain offsets from the carrier.

Sensitivity is the minimum magnitude of input signal required to produce a specified output signal having a specified signal-to-noise ratio, or other specified criteria.
