The Hioki 3504-50 C HiTESTER is a measurement instrument that can measure capacitance with constant voltage, making it ideal for testing large-capacitance multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs). The high-speed measurement performance of the standard comparator and BIN functions are well-suited for high speed MLCC measurement. The Hioki 3504-50 features a compact body with a easy to read LED display.
