Atlas LCR40 Support Page: The Atlas LCR - Model LCR40

 
LCR Update and Calibration Service
   
To recalibrate, your LCR must have the new style test 2mm leads (we've used the new style for the last 3 years). If you need new leads then click the button below to add a set to your cart, we'll fit them immediately before carrying out the calibration work. The version number of your Atlas LCR is displayed for a short time when powering up. Check this document to see list of version numbers. 

What do I get with this service?

  • Software upgrade to the latest version (R3.72).
  • Recalibration using our new updated traceable calibration standards.
  • Full test and calibration verification.
  • Optional certificate of traceable calibration

Send us your Atlas LCR (in a padded envelope or box) and book your recalibration by clicking on the button(s) below. If sending your unit from outside the UK, it is vital that it is clearly marked it with
 "Item for repair - Inward processing relief."

LCR Repair Service
   
If your LCR is out of warranty or you think you may have blown it up then don't worry

The best thing to do is to send us your unit and we so we can assess what needs to be done. We will then contact you (usually on the same day) to discuss the options available. If you wish, we can return your unit, free of charge if you're in the UK. Alternatively, you can book your repair online, send us your unit and we'll get on with it as soon as it gets here. The repair does not include new test leads, you may want to add a set to your cart at the same time (see button below). Software can only be upgraded if the unit can be calibrated and calibration is only possible if it has the latest lead type fitted.

Full Repair Consists of:
  • Hardware repair (repair and/or replacement parts).
  • Software upgrade (if applicable) to the latest version (R3.72).
  • Recalibration (if applicable) using our new updated traceable calibration standards.
  • Full test and calibration verification.
  • 12 month warranty for the repair work.

LCR Problem Solving
   
Problem Cause and Solution
Capacitance measured when probes are open circuit is not close to zero (1.6pf) Slight variations in open circuit capacitance are normal, perform a probe compensation procedure.
Resistance and/or inductance measured when probes are short circuit is not close to zero (1.2 ohms, 1.6uH) Slight variations in short circuit resistance and inductance are normal, perform a probe compensation procedure.
Measured value doesn't appear to be correct. Ensure 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 LCR.

Measured values vary slightly between tests. The displayed resolution is finer than the internal measurement resolution to avoid rounding errors. Small variations within the quoted measurement resolutions are normal.
Calibration date is approaching or has past. Don't worry, the Atlas LCR will carry on working after the "Calibration Due Date" has past. The date is simply a recommendation and may be required for the purposes of satisfying your own quality procedures. Click here if you would like us to recalibrate your unit.
Probe(s) has become detached. Older style probes simply fit to the test leads using square-pin connectors to allow for various accessories. Simply push them back together. New probe types are fitted together with 2mm plugs and sockets.
Display shows "Low Resistance and Inductance" when testing some components, why won't it measure them? It 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 and you will see the measurements for both inductance and resistance.
