Review: Mastech MS8911 Smart SMD LCR Tester
There are many low-cost SMD testers available, but their main drawback is that they can only distinguish and measure resistance and capacitance. That’s not handy with more and more inductors being used in modern circuits. The ability to recognise inductors is therefore a hard requirement. Now the Chinese company Mastech has launched the MS8911 tester for SMD passives, which costs less than 40 euros and is able to measure inductors, resistors and capacitors. That sounds too good to be true, so we wanted to put this instrument to the test.
