The 878A measures capacitance, resistance (of non-inductive components) and inductance. Components can be measured with selectable test frequencies in series or parallel modes as desired. The 4 1/2 digit main LCD displays values to 19,999, and the secondary 3 digit 1,000 count display reads D or Q. Both models can be used in either auto ranging or manual ranging modes.
- Selectable test frequencies 120Hz, 1KHz
- Simultaneously displays measured component value and Q or Dissipation Factor (D)
- Display hold
- Relative mode
- Tolerance mode
- RS 232 Interface (cable and software required)
