Single Device Solution for High Speed Testing and
Frequency Sweeping

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 IM3570 is ideal for use in applications requiring low-ESR measurement
on the order of several milliohms, for example testing of functional
polymer capacitors, due to its superior low-impedance repeatability.

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

• LCR measurement, DCR measurement, sweep measurement, continuous measurement and high-speed testing achieved with one instrument
• High-speed testing, achieving maximum speeds of 1.5ms (1 kHz) and 0.5ms (100kHz) in LCR mode
• High-accuracy measurements, basic accuracy of Z parameter: ± 0.08%
• Perfect impedance analyzer for testing the resonance characteristics of piezoelectric elements, C-D and low ESR measurement of functional polymer capacitors, DCR and L-Q measurement of inductors (coils and transformers)
• Perform frequency sweeps, level sweeps, and time interval measurements in analyzer mode

Impedance Analyzer IM3570: Measuring the resonance characteristics of a piezoelectric element

The IM3570, which serves as both an LCR meter and an impedance analyzer, can
generate pass/fail judgments on the resonance condition using its frequency
sweep measurement and peak comparator functions, and also conduct continuous
inspections under different conditions including pass/fail decisions via 1
kHz and 120 Hz LCR testing. In this way, it is possible to make both
frequency sweep measurement and LCR measurement with a single instrument.
