Expanded measurement range thanks to measurement frequencies from 4 Hz to 8 MHz and a guaranteed accuracy range starting at 1 mΩ
Whereas the legacy model (3532-50) had a measurement frequency band from 42 Hz to 5 MHz, the IM3536 expands this range from 4 Hz to 8 MHz to enable measurement of the characteristics of electronic components used in a multitude of fields. In particular, the LCR meter can accommodate a maximum measurement frequency of 8 MHz when measuring power supply inductors, whose operating frequencies continue to increase.
Faster, higher-precision measurement than the legacy Hioki model
The IM3536 offers improvements in both measurement times and basic accuracy compared to the legacy 3532-50.
Compared to the 3532-50's time of 5 ms (0.005 sec.), the IM3536 is a full five times faster at 1 ms (0.001 sec.). When the instrument is used on an electronic component production line, this improvement translates into increased productivity.
Ability to perform tests with multiple conditions using its continuous measurement function
When evaluating electronic components, it is sometimes necessary to measure a single component using a series of different conditions or parameters. Since the previous product took longer to change measurement conditions and perform measurement, tests requiring use of multiple conditions had to be performed with multiple instruments.
Contact check function for improved test quality
When a measurement probe experiences a wiring break during testing or poor contact with the object under test, the issue can impact the reliability of the resulting measured values, for example by increasing measurement error. To prevent this issue, the IM3536 ships standard with a contact check function that notifies the operator of measurement probe wiring breaks and contact issues. This capability leads to improved test quality
