Ergonomically designed Smart Tweezers is a unique combination of non-magnetic gold-plated tweezer, very reliable L-C-R-Z multi-meter and a small multi-function OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) display that allows the users to test, identify any type of component and help user perform complex debugging routines on micro circuit PCBs by just touching on them. It is an efficient and time saving testing tool that every electronic professional and enthusiast has ever dreamt of.
In simple words, a Smart Tweezers is a light weight test and debugging device that can be held like a pen by just one hand and perform complicated testing on SMT (Surface-Mount Technology) circuits with ease. Today it is an essential tool for the professionals and engineers to perform evaluation of SMD components like Inductors – L, Capacitors – C, Resistors – R on micro-PCBs. It can perform SMD component sorting and instantaneous trouble shooting of complex PCB by locating a faulty component reducing trouble shooting time dramatically.
Smart Tweezers is a product from Advance Devices Inc., Canada. It is a well known and patented in various countries LCR-Z meter that gives a unique new way to answer the old problem of testing and trouble-shooting Surface Mount Devices (SMD).
As electronic technology makes advancements and miniaturization of devices continues, Surface-mount technology (SMT) has become an integral part of our daily lives.
SMT is a way by which the components are mounted directly onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and such components are known as SMD (Surface Mount Devices). SMT components are so small in size that they cannot even be labeled. Thus you can easily lose track of parts and their values. Bulky old digital multi-meters are not practical in performing tests, component identification and debugging of such miniaturized SMT circuits and SMD components.
This is where Smart Tweezers come-in handy. With the use of only one hand, this sleek pen style device very accurately and at a blink speed evaluates all passive types of SMT components, such as Resistors, Capacitances and Inductances.
The USP of a Smart Tweezers is that, there is absolutely no special setup required to test, identify and debug different type of SMD components / SMT circuits. Just grasp a hard to identify SMD component (even soldered on the PCB) between the tweezer of this device and it will immediately display the test and measurement results with highest degree of accuracy.
No other commercially available testing tool can match the accuracy and swiftness offered by Smart Tweezers ST-5S (LCR Meter).
There are four different versions of Smart Tweezers readily available at INDE Enterprises.
- LCR Meter / Debugger - Smart Tweezers ST-5S
- LCR Meter / Debugger - Smart Tweezers ST5S-BT (Bluetooth Enabled)
- Low Cost LCR Reader - Colibri
- LED Tester - Iskra
