40000-Count Dual-Display Handheld LCR Meters

The BK878B, BK879B, and BK880 40,000-count handheld LCR meters measure inductance, capacitance, and resistance quickly and precisely.

The BK879B and BK880 also measure impedance, Theta, and ESR. Additionally, the BK880 offers capabilities typically only found in bench LCR meters, such as a 4-terminal configuration, basic measurement accuracy up to 0.1 %, test frequencies up to 100 kHz, selectable test signal levels and measurement rate.
