Siborg Systems and NPF Dipaul Pen Deal to Bring Smart Tweezers LCR-meter to Russia

Canadian Siborg Systems Inc. and NPF Dipaul in St.Petersburg pen deal to market and service Smart Tweezers in Russia and surrounding CIS countries.

Online PR News – 09-March-2013 – Waterloo, Ontario, Canada – Canadian Siborg Systems Inc. introduced their innovative LCR-meter nearly 10 years ago, today Smart Tweezers LCR-meter are being used by many major high-tech companies worldwide. The popular device is now being offered in Russia and surrounding CIS countries by NPF Dipaul in St.Petersburg.

NPF Dipaul is a wholesaler who specializes in supplying equipment, tools and consumables for the electronics industry. Established in 1990, clients include; Russian Federal Nuclear Center, Samara Space Center, Russian Space SYstems and Ioffe Institute, to name a few. With offices in St.Petersburg and Moscow, Dipaul has worked closely with DIma, FLuke, Mydata, Agilent Technologies, NOrdson Dage, Teseq, Theromotron and others.

Smart Tweezers were designed specifically for working with electronics featuring Surface Mount Technology, and is essential when manufacturing, repairing, troubleshooting and other applications where testing the small components is needed. With the same accuracy and speed as a conventional tester, Smart Tweezers also offer fully automatic Capacitance (C), Resistance (R) and most importantly Inductance(L) measurements without having to set up the device.

"We provide test solutions from Agilent in Russia for a number of years, and we appreciate how well Smart Tweezers LCR-meter compliments bench-type testers in a quick yet accurate evaluation of LCR-components." says Project Manager at Dipaul, Alkexander Lyubimtsev.

The integration of a small LCD screen, a pair of precision tweezers, and a highly accurate LCR meter, Smart Tweezers' newest model, the ST5, features designated ESR measurements, continuity and diode testing, and component sorting with an estimated 6 times higher accuracy than previous models. Unlike conventional bench-type testers, Smart Tweezers only requires one hand for evaluating components, and little to no setting up. The 2 oz. unit offers the high accuracy measurements and speed of bench-type testers when evaluating all types of passive SMT and through-hole devices, including the secondary parameters, such as the Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) of a capacitor.

With a patented mechatronic design, Smart Tweezers has very low and well defined parasitics. Using the offset subtraction feature, these parasitics are easily eliminated while testing components, allowing the device to measure capacitance and resistance as low as 1 milliohm and 1 picofarad range. It is also able to measure as low as a fraction of a microhenry, making it indispensable for use in radio electronics.

Smart Tweezers have gained the reputation as a professional quality tool, and is extremely useful for in-circuit and on-board impedance testing, PCB debugging, and SMT component sorting.
