C METER 3506-10
Dual-band 1kHz/1MHz Capacitance Meter for High
Speed Testing of Ceramic
Capacitors on Production
Hioki LCR Meters and Impedance Analyzers range from 1mHz to 3GHz devices
to suit a wide range of applications in the testing of electronic components.
The 3506-10 is a dual-band capacitance meter designed to be integrated with
automatic taping machines and sorters for production of
MLCC (multi-layer ceramic capacitors).

Model No. (Order Code)

3506-10Measurement frequencies: 1 kHz and 1 MHz

This product is not supplied with measurement probes or test fixtures.
Please select and purchase the measurement probe or test
fixture options appropriate for your application separately.
For an RS-232C connection:
A crossover cable for interconnection can be used.
You can use the RS-232C cable 9637 without hardware flow control.

Key Features

• High-speed analog test time of 0.6 ms (at 1 MHz)
• Improved noise resistance and enhanced repeatability in measurement precision even for production lines
• 1 kHz and 1 MHz measurement frequency supports stable low capacitance testing with taping machines
• BIN function, for easy component screening
