Component Testers are devices used to test ICs (Integrated Circuits) and SMD (Service Mounting Devices) and measure a range of electrical parameters such as voltage, resistance, capacitance, diode, continuity and more. Component & IC testing devices are available in a range of devices, many of which are portable hand-held devices.
Many testers feature large LCD screens that allow you to view results clearly in real time, ensuring you always have a precise and accurate reading.
There are a range of accessories available that are compatible with component and IC testing devices, ideal for testing a variety of small parts and components with precision without having to use large probes, such as tweezers.
Typical Applications for a Component Tester
Testers for components and ICs are commonly used in applications such as:
