The CAPWIZ Capacitor Wizard ( CAP1B & CAPSVR ) by Midwest Devices is an extremely fast and reliable device designed to measure ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) on capacitors of 1uf and larger "IN CIRCUIT" eliminating the need to remove the capacitor for ac curate tests. The Capacitor Wizard CAP1B & CAPSVR finds BAD caps IN CIRCUIT or out of the circuit!!
What is a CAPWIZSVR Capacitor Wizard Saver?
The Capacitor Wizard Saver helps protect against accidentally damaging the Capacitor Wizard® by attempting to test charged capacitors. Make a habit of following good service practices and discharge all capacitors before attempting a test - even if you install the CapSVR. Always remove power from the circuit under test.
Midwest Devices Capacitor Wizard CAP1B & CAPSVR
Capacitor Wizard ®" meter is a very useful capacitor analyzer from Midwest Devices LLC. The CAPWIZ Capacitor Wizard CAP1B & CAPSVR uses the ESR (equivalent series resistance) method for determining a capacitors' "health". Capacitor testing can be problematic using other solutions. The Capacitor Wizard CAP1B & CAPSVR ESR method detects problems with a device due to changes in the dielectric constant or the electrolytic compound drying out and really measures the overall "health" of a device and not just its capacitance value. This is an indispensable piece of test equipment for a system designer or product technician!!!!"
