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. Inductance (Series mode) Test Frequency 120 Hz Range: 20 mH to 1000 H. Inductance (Series mode) Test Frequency 1 KHz Range: 20 mH to 100 H.

*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.

Available Gain
Available Gain is the ratio, at a specific frequency, of power available from the output to the power in from the source.

Decibel (dB)
A unit of measurement of power which indicates relative power. A -10 dB means a reduction in power by 10 times, -20 dB means another 10 times or 100 times overall, -30 means another 10 times or 1000 times overall and so on.

Mismatch Uncertainty
Mismatch Uncertainty is caused by re-reflections between one device (the source) and the device that follows it (the load).

Pulse Power
Pulse Power, the energy transfer rate is averaged over the pulse width. Pulse width is considered to be the time between the 50 percent risetime/falltime amplitude points. Pulse power averages out any aberrations in the pulse envelope such as overshoot or ringing.
