A versatile meter for capacitors
The two most important properties of a capacitor are its capacitance and its
internal resistance (ESR). You need to know both values in order to judge
whether a capacitor is suitable for a particular application. The meter
described here combines two popular Elektor Electronics projects to create a
convenient new instrument that rightly belongs in every well-equipped
electronics lab.

measures capacitance as well as ESR



Re: ESR / C Tester
hi Eric,

I built the previous design (ESR meter only) from the September 2002
issue and it works a treat. I'm using it mainly for repair work on
vintage radios.

BTW Elektor articles can now be downloaded from their website -- should
be great for .AU / .NZ and other folks six or more seas away from the
UK.

regards,
Richard

Re: ESR / C Tester
Hi Richard
I have two of the original Bob Parker-EA magazine kits made up, now it could
be known as the Mark1 version.

I will keen to visit the city library next month, and if it looks great,
visit the bookshops a month after that, it would be great to have something
that measures capacitance, the July/August summer issue said it went to
large capacitor values, if the price is not too much,
