  Colibri Overview  

Smart Tweezers Colibri™ combines a pair of gold-plated SMD tweezers with ergonomic shielded handles and a precise full featured LCR impedance meter in a compact, lightweight instrument. Smart Tweezers Colibri™ measures electronic component’s capacitance, resistance and inductance with high speed by evaluating circuit impedance. Smart Tweezers Colibri™ provides a perfect solution for testing and identification of Surface Mount Devices (SMD) as well as for troubleshooting of complex electronic systems.
Handy Tool for Tiny SMD Components
Surface mount devices are usually tiny and without wire leads, making them more difficult to test and identify SMD than conventional components. Smart Tweezers Colibri™ gives users an easy way to sort and evaluate loose components and to perform on-board measurements and debugging. Precise gold-plated tips made of non-magnetic steel are able to pick and reliably contact SMD components or take measurements from the devices already mounted on a board.
Capacitor ESR Meter Mode
Smart Tweezers Colibri™ feature a ESR Meter mode for quality testing of high value capacitors.
Perfect for Conventional Components
Smart Tweezers Colibri™ works fine with conventional though-hole electronic components. The unit helps to verify values with high speed and precision. Unmarked components would be easily identified, paired and sorted.
Built-in Li-Ion Polymer Rechargeable battery
Smart Tweezers Colibri™ comes equipped with a built-in high-capacity Li-Ion rechargeable battery. Battery replacements are not required. Micro USB charging cord and power supply (USA and Canada only) are included. Smart Tweezers Colibri™ can be charged from any standard USB port or USB wall charger.
Automatic Component Recognition
Smart Tweezers Colibri™ automatically determines type of the component (resistance, capacitance or inductance), selects proper range and signal frequency for highest accuracy measurements. Manual overrides are available as well. Unit’s display indicates the type of the component, measurement result and test conditions. The primary display shows the present reading. The secondary display (on top) shows the present reading of additional parameters or measurement conditions when the primary display shows some other feature (L, C).
Ergonomic Design and Convenient Controls
Default settings can be modified by the Mode/Parameter Control. colibri callouts
