probes are well connected to the component under test for
the entire duration of the analysis.
Ensure that nothing else is
connected with the component under test. Make sure you are
not touching the connections.
The component value may be outside
the supported measurement range.
The component's design frequency may
not correspond to the test frequencies used by the Atlas

will measure them. This message is displayed when the
Atlas LCR is measuring a low resistance and low inductance
component and cannot be certain whether it is an inductor
or a resistor (as they can have very similar properties at
low values). Simply press scroll on the unit
