  • Atlas ESR70 Plus – ESR Tester

    Peak Peak Atlas ESR70 Gold - Low Resistance and Capacitance Meter

    The Peak Atlas ESR70 Gold is an enhanced version of the previous Peak Atlas ESR70 Plus. It does everything that the ESR70 Plus did but better. It now measures capacitance up to 10x faster, and over a wider range, thanks to new test algorithms. The capacitance measurement is also much less influenced by parallel resistances or leakage current thanks to our new Triple-Slope measurement system. Using the supplied gold plated probes (removable), the Atlas ESR70 Gold can measure ESR down to a resolution of 0.01 ohms, up to 40 ohms. It can even measure ESR for capacitors that are in-circuit. Probes are removable, allowing 2 mm compatible probes to be fitted. Audible alerts are produced for various ESR levels allowing you to perform many tests in succession without having to look at the display. The ESR70 automatically takes capacitive reactance into account, so even low value capacitors (down to 0.3 uF) can have the ESR measured accurately. Features Uses a single AAA Alkaline cell (included). Alphanumeric LCD with backlight. Automatic analysis-start when you apply the probes. Automatic capacitor discharge using controlled discharge function. ESR (and low DC resistance) measurement (even in-circuit). Capacitive reactance automatically taken into account to ensure accurate ESR. Capacitance measurement (if testing out-of-circuit). Audible alerts for various ESR levels. Extended ESR measurement range up to 40 Ohms. Optional probe alternatives easily fitted. New Gold Features Improved LCD with better backlight. 10x faster capacitance measurement for large capacitors.
