Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader Handheld LCR-meters Receive New Distributor AOne Electrotest Services in Singapore

Siborg Systems Inc., in Canada, has signed a new distribution deal with Singapore based AOne Electrotest Services to further Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader LCR-meters distribution in Asia.

AOne, established in 2007, are a premium distributor of high-quality measuring electronics and electrical test equipment, offering brands such as Additel, Flir-Systems, Kaise, Chauvin Arnoux, Kewtech, Tenmars, etc.

Smart Tweezers and LCR-Reader are handheld digital LCR-meters designed specifically for Surface Mount Technology and have become a globally recognizable device since their introduction in the early 2000’s.

“We are excited for this new deal with AOne,” says the Director at Siborg Systems Inc., “Our customers will greatly appreciate having a distributor in their area, and we believe that Smart Tweezers will be a great fit among their already existing line of test equipment and products.”

Smart Tweezers are an easy-to-use device that makes working with Surface Mount Technology (SMT) more efficient. The design combines a set of sharp, gold-plated tweezers with an LCR-meter and a small display embedded in the handles. Without any need to set-up, Smart Tweezers is able to determine the type of component and the best test range before automatically measuring for Inductance, Resistance or Capacitance. The evaluation results, as well as any secondary values such as the ESR, are instantly displayed on the devices’ screen.

Siborg currently has 2 different models to offer: the ST-5S: a professional level device with more features, higher accuracy and comes with an NIST traceable calibration certificate, and the LCR-Reader: the consumer’s choice model. This model is more affordable to non-professionals, retailing under $200 USD, and offers a slightly lower basic accuracy and less features. Both models have a ergonomic design and weigh only 1 oz. and have Li-Ion batteries rechargeable via micro-USB. Both come with a hard-shelled travel case for the device.

The ST-5S model is the professional model and is best for production lines with the ability to perform component sorting. This model is an updated version of the previous ST-5 model, but with a newer look and new joystick navigational button. This button allows users to change test parameters and modes without needing to access the menus. Features on the ST-5S include:

-Fully automatic L, C, R and ESR evaluations

-Basic accuracy of 0.2%

-Automatic selection of the best range

-Component sorting with 1%, 5%, 10% and 20% tolerances

-Continuity and diode testing

-Semi-automatic offset subtraction

-Comes with an NIST traceable calibration certificate

The LCR-Reader is a lower-budget model of Smart Tweezers, retailing for under $200 USD while still offering high accuracy evaluations and immediate results. The LCR-Reader is fully automatic with the ability to change the test mode (auto, L, C, R, ESR, etc.). Features include:

-Automatic L, C, R and ESR evaluations

-Basic accuracy of 1% (about the same as ST-2 and ST-3)

-Automatic best range selection

Siborg is excited for this new distribution partnership with AOne Electrotest Services in Singapore. This benefits customers that no longer have to wait for shipping from North America or customs when receiving their devices or sending it away in case of repair or maintenance. Smart Tweezers are currently used around the globe by major high-tech companies and are an exceptional tool for manufacturing or maintenance of electronics.
