    he HP 4261A is 3 1/2 digit LCR meter that meets today's requirements for component measurements. The instrument features fully automatic operation over wide measuring ranges. Simply select the measuring functions and one of the test frequencies, then insert the device to be measured. The instrument does the rest-automatically selecting the proper measuring range and equivalent circuit mode.

    In addition to automatic measurements, the 4261A provides high accuracy (0.2% reading), internal dc bias, and series and parallel equivalent circuit modes.

    This relatively low cost and easy-to-use LCR meter is capable of a wide range of applications--measuring electrolytic/ceramic capacitors, filter coils, pulse transformers, internal resistance of dry cells and semiconductor junction capacitance, as well as ordinary LCR components. Extended features of these reliable instruments include optionally available BCD data output capabilities and a comparator option which is convenient for production line applications.
