I spotted an ad buried in the back of Radcom by Chevet Supplies Ltd at
Blackpool for a TENMA LCR meter [. . . . .] good value at 44 including
vat and UK carriage.
Following Alan's comments, I decided to buy one too!
I've only just unpacked it, but initial results with the Tenma
Model 72-6634 are encouraging.
It may not be ideal for use below 100 pF or 100 uH, but with
careful use (that is, allowing for the non-zero display offset),
it can give good results. It's a shame that there is no external
control for 'zeroing' the display. (There are three internal
trim-pots, but it is not clear what they do.)
The unit is pocket-sized (about 120 mm x 70 mm x 40 mm) and
runs off an internal PP3 (9 volt) battery. A very useful
addition to my test equipment - thanks, Alan.
Regards to all,
