Some months ago, the LCR Meter AU2019 successfully completed its Elektor Jumpstarter campaign after more than 150 people signed up for it. The prototype was therefore taken into production and now the instrument is ready for shipping. 
Elektor 2 MHz LCR Meter Kit

The Elektor LCR Meter

The Elektor LCR Meter AU2019 measures the resistance, capacitance, and inductance of components with an impedance of 10 mΩ up to 100 MΩ. It displays the equivalent circuit (series or parallel), frequency, |Z|, Φ, Q or D and DUT voltage & current. Its high precision and ultra-wide frequency range from 50 Hz to 2 MHz make this a very powerful and valuable instrument.

It features the following measurement ranges:
  • L: 10 nH ... 100 H
  • C: 1 pF ... 100 mF
  • R, |Z|: 10 mΩ ... 100 MΩ
  • Q: 0 ... 5000
  • Φ: -90° ... +90°

What's in the Kit?

You can assemble and calibrate the Elektor LCR Meter kit in under 90 minutes. All you need is a screwdriver, a multimeter, a soldering iron, and the manual.


The kit includes everything you will need. 
  • Two populated PCBs (pushbuttons, rotary switch, and LCD)
  • Note: Before shipping the operation of both boards was carefully checked according to a protocol developed by the original designer Jean-Jacques Aubry.
  • Four BNC sockets (not assembled)
  • Four jumpers
  • Hammond case drilled, machined, with printed front and side panels
  • Kelvin cables with clips and four plugs
  • Mini-USB / USB-A cable
  • 24-way flat cable (15 cm)
  • Aluminium button for rotary switch
  • Full-color, printed assembly manual (32 pages)
  • Adjustment tool for trimmers
