Component Testing

Chroma manufactures a complete line of test equipment to measure the electrical behavior and characterization of capacitors, inductors, resistors, and wound components to the most current of specifications. Characterization tests include inductance, capacitance, resistance, impedance, dissipation factor, quality factor, leakage current, and insulation resistance. In addition, Chroma’s equipment can also test switches, connectors, lead wires, conductive, dielectric material, magnetic material, and semiconductor components.

LCR Measurement Primer

This primer defines and explains the measurement of the impedance parameters known as L (inductance), C (capacitance), and R (resistance), along with the impedance measurements that are typically used, including their equations. This also includes connections to the device under test, and how to use test instruments to precisely measure impedance.
