Back in 2013, Elektor published Jean-Jacques Aubry’s article series about his 500 ppm LCR Meter project AU2013. Since then, he has been working on a new design. This new LCR Meter focuses on ease of use rather than extreme precision (Figure 1). It offers the following features, functions, and more: component test frequency from 50 Hz to 2 MHz (!), four possible test voltages (100 mV, 200 mV, 500 mV and 1 Vrms), and additional DC polarization up to 5 V for capacitors and 50 mA for inductors.

We will start the production kit as soon as we receive 150 confirmations. The LCR Meter kit will include the following:
  • Preassembled main board with soldered SMD components
  • Preassembled display board with all SMD components soldered
  • Through-hole components for both PCBs (backlit graphic LCD, connectors, pushbuttons, rotary encoder, button)
  • Ribbon cable for connecting the main board and display board
  • A mini-USB cable for connecting to a PC and software updating
  • An aluminium Hammond case, drilled and milled panels
  • Screws
  • Kelvin clip with a test cable with four BNC plugs
  • User manual
