LCR METER IM3533, IM3533-01

LCR METER IM3533, IM3533-01

Wide band 1mHz to 200kHz LCR Meter for R&D Applications to Windings, Coil and Transformer Manufacturing


SKU: LCR METER IM3533, IM3533-01 Categories: , , , ,


Hioki LCR Meters and Impedance Analyzers range from 1mHz to 1.3GHz devices to suit a wide range of applications in the testing of electronic components. The IM3533 series are Hioki’s first LCR meters to offer turn ration, mutual inductance and inductance difference measurements of transformers and coils, and are integrated with an internal DC bias to facilitate HDMI compliance testing. LCR METER

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. All probes are constructed with a 1.5D-2V coaxial cable. 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.

Key Features

• ±0.05% accuracy with wide measurement range (DC, 1mHz to 200kHz, 5mV to 5V, 10uA to 50mA)

• Non-stop testing over mixed measurement conditions such as C-D and ESR at 10 times the speed of previous models

• Built-in low impedance high precision mode effective for testing low inductance or the ESR of aluminum electrolysis capacitance (10× the measurement speed and dramatic improvements in repeatability and stability over the previous model 3522-50)

• Dedicated modes for measuring transformer winding ratio, mutual inductance and temperature compensated DCR

• Frequency sweep testing (IM3533-01 only) • 2m/4m cable setting in addition to the standard 0m/1m

■ Basic specifications (Accuracy guaranteed for 1 year, Post-adjustment accuracy guaranteed for 1 year)
