New Smart Tweezers ST5 Available Now in 5 Continents Worldwide from Bokar International

An agreement between manufacturer Siborg Systems and Bokar International to market the popular LCR-meter in 27 countries, including Canada and the USA

Online PR News – 06-November-2012 – New York, New York – The Canadian manufacturer of electronics tester and automatic LCR-meter Smart Tweezers, Siborg Systems Inc. has made a deal with Bokar International to market the device in 27 countries worldwide, on five continents.

Bokar International produces and sells an innovative line of tools and equipment for reworking, repairing and assembling electronics featuring Surface Mount Technology (SMT). Besides their full line of equipment and accessories, Bokar is developing several new and more sophisticated machines.

Smart Tweezers are the combination of a fully automatic LCR-meter and a set of tweezers acting as the probe in a professional tool for testing and troubleshooting Surface Mount Technology. The newest model, the ST5, features diode and continuity tests, designated ESR measurements, component sorting, and an estimated 6 times higher basic accuracy of 0.2% over older models.

"From the very first look at Smart Tweezers, it was clearly a perfect match to our line of products," says the CEO at Bokar International, Czeslaw Ruszowski. "We manufacture equipment for production, rework and repair of Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) densely packed with SMT components, as small as 0.3 mm. It makes debugging a faulty PCB virtually impossible with the use of conventional LCR-meters. Smart Tweezers light-weight design integrating high-precision SMT probes, accurate digital LCR-meter and an LCD display makes it easily usable by just one hand leaving the other free for taking notes or holding other tools."

Smart Tweezers automatically performs a quick SMD component identification, then measures for Inductance, Resistance or Capacitance for all types of passive or through-hole devices. They are also capable of measuring secondary parameters, such as the parasitic resistance of an inductance or the ESR of a capacitor, doubling Smart Tweezers as an ESR-meter.

The popular LCR-meter has become an indispensable tool in the electronics industry with component sorting, on-board impedance testing and PCB debugging.
