IM3536

General-Purpose LCR Meters with Measurement Frequency from DC, 4Hz to 8MHz

Hioki LCR Meters and Impedance Analyzers range from 1mHz to 3GHz devices to suit a wide range of applications in the testing of electronic components. The IM3536 raises the industry standard for general-purpose LCR meters by offering a wide DC and 4Hz to 8MHz testing frequency while delivering 0.05% accuracy, ideal for evaluating the characteristics of next generation electronic components, including power supply inductors thanks to the instrument’s maximum measurement frequency of 8MHz. Key Features • DC, 4Hz to 8MHz measurement frequency • High-speed measurement of 1ms (fastest time) • High-precision measurement of ±0.05% rdg. (representative value) • Guaranteed accuracy range from 1 mΩ, low-impedance measurement with unmatched repeatability • DC bias function: Measure under conditions simulating actual use or in accordance with industry standards • Exceptional specifications and cost-performance for a wide range of applications, from R&D to production lines

Measuring the Capacitance of Electrolytic Capacitors with Hioki LCR Meters

The measurement conditions under which the capacitance of electrolytic capacitors is defined are set forth by an IEC standard. However, since the capacitance of electrolytic capacitors varies significantly with the measurement frequency, capacitance values are also checked at the frequencies that correspond to the circuit conditions under which the components will actually be used. The LCR Meter IM3536’s measurement frequency can be set over a broad range of values (DC and 4 Hz to 8 MHz), making the instrument ideal for evaluating components under the conditions of actual use.


Measuring the Capacitance of Ceramic Capacitors with Hioki LCR Meters

There are two types of laminated ceramic capacitor: the high-dielectric type, whose capacitance varies with the measurement voltage, and the temperature-corrected type, whose capacitance does not vary. The measurement conditions under which capacitance is defined are set forth by separate IEC standards for the two types of component. The LCR Meter IM3536’s measurement frequency and measurement voltage can be set over a broad range of values (DC and 4 Hz to 8 MHz, and 10 mV to 5 V, respectively), making the instrument ideal for measuring laminated ceramic capacitors under a variety of conditions.


Measuring the Inductance of Inductors or Coils with HIOKI LCR Meters

The phenomenon of LC resonance based on the inductance of inductors (or coils) and the parasitic capacitance of coils is known as self-resonance, and the frequency at which self-resonance occurs is known as the self-resonant frequency. When evaluating a coil, measure L and Q at a frequency that is sufficiently lower than the self-resonant frequency. The LCR Meter IM3536’s measurement frequency can be set over a broad range of values (DC and 4 Hz to 8 MHz), making the instrument ideal for measuring and evaluating components while varying the frequency.


Measuring the Frequency Characteristics of Inductors on Hioki LCR Meters

The LCR Meter IM3536’s measurement frequency can be set over a broad range of values (DC and 4 Hz to 8 MHz), making it ideal for measuring and evaluating components while varying the frequency. You can install the included LCR sample application software (CD-R) on a computer and use it via the instrument’s interfaces (USB, GP-IB, or RS-232C) to vary the frequency at designated points and to save data obtained from automatic measurement as a Microsoft Excel or text file.
