Bought New Digital Capacitance Tester

By on January 19, 2011

Yesterday i went to electronics shop and found a new digital capacitance meter by Pro’s kit. It has a very large LCD display and the overall size is much bigger than the TES 1500 capacitance tester. The lcd backlight was bright and it comes with test probes and the alligator clips. I have not really test the meter yet (to see how reliable is it) and most probably will pass to my staff to use it. Besides digital capacitance meter, i have also bought 6 units of SMD rework station for the coming repair course. Sorry for blogging less nowadays as i have to spare some of the time to fulfill this year resolution.

    Hi Jestine,
    Can you let your members know the price of the items you purchased? Another thing Jestine please help me find the substitute for the IC no: LD7522PS used in Acer LCD model X203H. Thanks Jestine.

    Hi Guys,

    The digital capacitance price is USD55.00 (which is about the same price as TES 1500) and the SMD rework station is about USD100.00.

    To Bernard- sorry i have no info on the IC.

    that is not a bad price..I hope you will have the chance to test the capacitor meter and let us know the result. I am looking for a digital capacitor meter..what do you recomend?
    I am having a problem with my GME ESR meter. it tells me that capacitors on pc are bad..but when I take it off the board, it checks ok. what is the process of buying the blue esr meter? please let me know. thanks

    HI Waleed,

    At current moment the best is still the TES1500. The Sunwa cap meter has lots of dry joints. Need time to really test new cap meter out. You can use Western Union or Money gram to send money to me. Once i got the money i will send to you the meter. You need the kitset or the fully assembled kitset?

    do you accept credit cards. I friend of mine is going to do it for me..I will keep you posted. I have a question for you..do you know how much the meter weight? my friend is in the states and shipping the meter to the states is cheaper than the middle east..so my friend is going to bring it with him when he comes home in a month time..let me know. if I want to get the kitset..is it easy to put together? that is what I am planning to get and do it myself. let me know. thanks

    Jestine, as you use this to test capacitors in lcd tv's and power supplies I guess you will still measure esr even though the cap checks ok right?

    Hi Jimmy,

    I only use it to test on the non polar cap. For the e-caps, yes i will still use ESR meter to test it.

    Hi Waleed,

    In that case, i suggest that you get your friend to buy it from anatek website http://www.anatekcorp.com in the USA because they are the supplier.

    Hi Jestine,

    It's quite strange that I cannot find this cap meter MT-5110 in the ProsKit official website?

    Hi,

    Haven't really fully test it out. If you want to buy now i suggest that you get the TES 1500 digital capacitance meter because it is very reliable.

    Dear Jestine,

    May i Know where you buy this new digital capacitance meter? and Please assist me on how to use Tes 1500, since I can not find the instruction manual anymore.

    HI Fatur,

    I found that the above cap meter was not really good. TES 1500 still the best. If you want to test any cap, find out the value first. Assuming if you are testing a 100uf then you have to select a range that is higher than 100uf which mean 200uf.

    Dear Jestine, thanks for your input.
    Btw, i need to have instruction manual of TES 1500. Since mine is lost. Could you help me in this problem? or maybe can you teach me how to use this meter on proper way?

    Thanks

    HI Fatur,

    If you have a cap rated 10uf then you need to select more than 10 uf which is 20uf. All capacitor have 10% tolerance. If you get about 10uf then it is a good cap. If you get 5uf, 3uf or even 1 uf then the cap is bad. I suggest that you check on the good cap in your spare part compartment to better understand the cap meter.

    Dear Mr. Jestine,

    I started to read reviews recently and hope that its not late to have any comment.
    About the MT 5110, I am sure its exactly Victor 6013 and seen with other brands.

    Thanks

    Hi Jestine,

    Is there some possibility to do some adjustment or modification
    to put it into a reliable tester?!

    I have one6013 and also a GPS 132A, I think GPS is much better than 6013.
    Thanks, A
