LCR Characterization techniques? (LCR200 vs DE 5000)
« on: February 19, 2014, 08:15:04 pm »
Anyone have any good tricks to put an LCR meter through its paces?

The DE 5000 showed up crazy early (3 days after ordering, from Japan) so, for the next few days, I'll have both meters on the bench.

I'll run through some ordinary components and some trickery (resistors and caps in series and parallel, filters, coiled leads, etc) but I can't think of anything really novel.

I think both these meters use the same chipset internally (Cyrustek ES51920) so I'm not expecting many differences but I figured this was a neat opportunity.  I can try shooting some vid if anyone's interested.

How can I make these meters sweat?  Short of 220V I mean?

Yes I am definitely interested in your opinion on both these meter seeing you can do a side by side comparison. I am on a budget and would be grateful to know if I can fly by with the cheaper LCR2000
