IMPEDANCE ANALYZER IM3570

Single Device Solution for High Speed Testing and Frequency Sweeping

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 IM3570 is ideal for use in applications requiring low-ESR measurement on the order of several milliohms, for example testing of functional polymer capacitors, due to its superior low-impedance repeatability.

This product is not supplied with measurement probes or test fixtures. Please select and purchase the measurement probe or test fixture options appropriate for your application separately. For an RS-232C connection: A crossover cable for interconnection can be used. You can use the RS-232C CABLE 9637 without hardware flow control.

Impedance Analyzer IM3570: Measuring the resonance characteristics of a piezoelectric element

The IM3570, which serves as both an LCR meter and an impedance analyzer, can generate pass/fail judgments on the resonance condition using its frequency sweep measurement and peak comparator functions, and also conduct continuous inspections under different conditions including pass/fail decisions via 1 kHz and 120 Hz LCR testing. In this way, it is possible to make both frequency sweep measurement and LCR measurement with a single instrument.
