LCR Meter Shootout
A recent coffee chat I had with a few colleagues at Elektor HQ resulted in me putting three LCR Meters with a completely different background through a quick hands-on test. The Hameg meter (HM8118 [1], courtesy of Rohde & Schwarz Netherlands [2]) is a professional instrument with a price tag of $2,000+. The vintage meter from the Retronics dept. is a General Radio Company (GRC) type 1650-A Impedance Bridge manufactured in 1960, costing a whopping $1,000 back then [3]. And finally, the Elektor 500 ppm LCR Meter [4], which should set you back less than $400 in parts.
