Model Description:
"ReZolver" In-Circuit Capacitor/Inductor Analyzer

Model Details

The LC103's quick, one-button in-circuit tests provide the reliability that other testers miss. The LC103 gives complete capacitor tests that catch all four failure modes, and complete coil tests for value and shorted turns. The LC103 also does all the interpreting of test results for you by comparing the results to EIA standard and displaying "GOOD" or "BAD". In addition, the LC103 allows you to test SCRs and triacs. You can also test flybacks and other transformers with the tented "Ringer" - catching even single shorted turns.


  • Pinpoints bad capacitors and inductors "in-circuit," and automatically tells you when further out-of-circuit tests are required
  • Tests SMT components "in-circuit" and accurately with exclusive, time-saving test accessories
  • Makes all tests, compares the results to EIA standards, and tells you "GOOD" or "BAD" - automatically
  • Analyzes capacitors for all four failures out-of-circuit: Value from 1 pF to 20 F, Equivalent series resistance, Leakage with up to 1,000 volts applied, Dielectric absorption
  • Analyzes inductors with exclusive patented tests for: Values from 0.1 uH to 20 H, Opens or shorts, Even one shorted turn with patented "Ringer" test
  • Tests SCRs and triacs with optional SCR250 accessory

  • IN-CIRCUIT TESTS (Capacitors and Inductors) : Component Types: Electrolytic, double layer lytic, tantalum, ceramic, and other capacitors, yokes, flybacks, switching transformers, and coils
  • Capacitor Range : 0.002 uF to 20,000 uF
  • Inductor Range : 3.18 uH to 3.18 H
  • Accuracy : Same as Out-of-Circuit tests for known good inductors and capacitors with no parallel current paths
  • Suggest Removal Indication : Initiated when AC test differs from DC test by more than 20%, or if low level DCR test indicates a leakage path greater than 20% of charge current for capacitors
  • OUT-OF-CIRCUIT TESTS : (Capacitors)
  • Value : Dynamic test of capacity value is determined by applying a constant current to the capacitor and measuring the dV/dt
  • Range : 1 pF to 20 F
  • Accuracy : ?1%, ?1 pF, ?1 digit for values to 1990 uF, ?5%; ?0.1% of range full scale for values 2000 uF to 20 F
  • EQUIVALENT SERIES RESISTANCE (ESR) : Accuracy: ?5%, ?1 digit, Capacitor Range: 0.01 uF to 20 F
  • DIELECTRIC ABSORPTION : Accuracy: ?5% of reading, ?1 count, Range: 1 to 100%, Capacitor Range: 0.01 uF to 20 F
  • LEAKAGE : Accuracy: ?5%, ?1 digit, Applied Voltage: Keyboard entry 1.0 to 1000 volts in 0.1 volt steps short circuit current limited to 900 mA
  • OUT-OF-CIRCUIT TESTS : (Inductors)
  • Value : A dynamic test of value determined by measuring the EMF produced when a changing current is applied to the coil under test
  • Range : 0.1 uH to 20 H
  • Accuracy : ?2%, ?1 digit, ?0.1 uH
  • Ringing Test : A dynamic test of inductor quality determined by applying an exciting pulse to the inductor and counting the number of cycles the inductor rings before reaching a preset damping point
  • Inductor Range : 10 uH and larger, non-iron core
  • Accuracy : ?1 count on readings between 8 and 13 Rings
  • Resolution : ?1 count
  • Exciting Pulse : 5 volts peak
  • Temperature Operating Range : 32? to 104? F (0? to 40? C)
  • Temperature Range for Specified Accuracy (after 10 minute warm-up) : 50? to 86? F (10? to 30? C)
  • Power : 105-130V AC, 60Hz, 30 watts with supplied PA251 power adapter. Battery operation with optional BY289 rechargeable battery.
  • Auto-Off : Removes power during battery operation if unit sits idle longer than 5 minutes
  • Battery Life : 2 hours typical operation
  • HxWxD Size : 6 x 9 x 11.5 inches (15.2 cm x 22.9 cm x 29.l cm)
  • Weight : 6.0pounds (2.7 kg) without battery, 7.6 pounds (3.4 kg) with battery
  • GOOD/BAD Indication : Functions on all tests. Requires user input of component type and value, or input of desired limits
