BK Precision 880 – 40,000 Count Dual Display Handheld LCR Meter
40,000 counts resolution on primary and 10,000 counts resolution on secondary display
L, C, R, and Z primary measurements
Automatic calculation of secondary parameters D, Q, Theta, ESR (Theta/ESR), and DCR
Accuracy up to 0.1% and selectable test frequencies up to 100 kHz
The model 880 40,000-count handheld LCR meters measures inductance, capacitance, and resistance quickly and precisely. Additionally, the 880 also measures impedance, Theta, and ESR, features typically only found in bench LCR meters. Additionally, the 880 offers capabilities typically only found in bench LCR meters such as a 4-terminal configuration, basic measurement accuracy up to 0.1%, test frequencies up to 100 kHz, and selectable test signal levels.

Fast auto ranging and quick measurement configuration such as measurement parameter and test frequency selection make the 880 very simple to operate. The meter also includes handy functions such as data hold, Min/Max/Average recording, tolerance sorting, and relative mode.

Measurement data can continuously transfer to a PC via the meter’s mini USB interface, using either the provided data logging software or SCPI commands sent from a custom program.
ESR Measurements
Models 879B and 880 have the ability to measure the ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) of capacitors. ESR is the sum of in-phase AC resistance of a capacitor and used to rate a capacitor’s quality. An ideal capacitor would be lossless and have an ESR of zero. A capacitor could measure the correct capacitance value, yet still be defective, due to the component’s excessive in-phase AC resistance. The 879B and 880 would be able to detect this faulty component.
Easy Front Panel Operation
Powerful Features
Flexible Operation
A tilt stand provides position flexibility for viewing and operating the meter. The over-molding rubber case protects the meter for better durability. A single 9 V battery (16 hours with alkaline battery) or the included 12 V power adapter (with model 879B & 880) can be used to power the meter, giving the user options for portable or bench-top use.

Model 880 includes a rechargeable Ni-MH battery that can provide up to six hours of battery life.

Four-terminal shielded configuration (880 only)
The 880 provides a 4-terminal socket with separate sensing and current leads plus guard terminal, a configuration typically only found in bench LCR meters. When using the included 4-terminal Kelvin test leads, this configuration can reduce the effect of lead impedances and contact resistance. This minimizes measurement errors and improves accuracy especially in the lower impedance range.

Faster Auto Range
The advanced auto range circuit design allows for faster measurements without the need to manually select ranges.

Dual Display
The dual display allows multiple measurements to be conveniently displayed at once.

Auto Detect Mode (880 only)
With the push of a single button, the Auto detect function will automatically identify primary parameters L, C or R and related secondary parameters, and set the suitable series/parallel equivalent mode and range.
