About Sunwa Capacitor Tester
Yesterday i went to Pasar Road (electronic suppliers) to buy tools and meters for students to use in today’s Basic Electronic Repair course. I bought 3 Pro’s kit digital multimeters, 3 TES 1500 Digital Capacitance meter, one Sunwa Meter, 2 Hakko 981 solder gun, 2 desoldering pump and some other tools like screw drivers and etc. As for the Capacitor Meter i would usually buy the TES 1500 model because it has proven to be very reliable. I have one unit that is still serving even after 5 to 6 years!
Since i saw a new unit of a Sunwa Digital Capacitor Meter, i decided to try it out and see how is the quality and the performance like. I have tested the range selector and found that it was quite good. I guess it have to be used it everyday to really test out the meter. For your information not all SUNWA meter are no good. I have a SUNWA analogue meter that is still workable even after 4 to 5 years! I bought a Kyoritsu analogue meter and the selector broke after one year in use. I had used a non branded capacitor tester before and the selector broke in less than 7 days!
The sales person later hand over me some of the latest Pro’skit and Nakajima Catalog and i found that there are lots of new meters produced. Here are the photos of the Sunwa Capacitor Tester and the Catalog:
