LCR METER IM3523

Ideal for Production Lines of Electronic Parts and Automated Testing

Hioki LCR Meters and Impedance Analyzers range from 1 mHz to 3 GHz devices to suit a wide range of applications in the testing of electronic components. The IM3523 is designed for basic measurement on production lines so that it can be offered at a low price point, and delivers improved measurement reliability thanks to its contact check function.

Key Features

  • ±0.05% accuracy with wide measurement range (DC, 40Hz to 200kHz, 5mV to 5V, 10uA to 50mA)
  • Rapid 2 msec test time
  • Built-in comparator and BIN functions
  • Non-stop testing over mixed measurement conditions such as C-D(120 Hz) and ESR(100 kHz) at 10 times the speed of previous models (compared with Model 3532-50)
