BK PRECISION 879 Handheld LCR Meter

The BK Precision 879 is a 19,999-count L/C/R hand-held meter is a special microprocessor-controlled meter for measuring functions of inductance, capacitance and resistance. The 879 meter provides direct and accurate measurements of inductors, capacitors and resistors with different testing frequencies. It is selectable for auto and manual ranging. The test data can be transferred to PC through an optional full isolated optical RS232C interface. It has a backlight display for easy reading in dark places. Specifications.

Carrier Wave (CW)
Carrier Wave or Continuous Wave is a sinusoidal signal without modulation.

A harmonic of a wave is a component frequency of the signal that is an integer multiple of the fundamental frequency, i.e. if the fundamental frequency is f, the harmonics have frequencies 2f, 3f, 4f, . . . etc.

Noise Floor
Noise floor is the measure of the signal created from the sum of all the noise sources and unwanted signals within a measurement system.

Ripple is the small unwanted residual periodic variation of the direct current (dc) output
