DT71 Mini Digital Tweezers are among the nicest, most handsome digital test equipment we’ve come across. The DT71 is compact and pocket-sized for easy portable use. They’re a perfect assistant for folks who have assorted SMT components that need verification – either because they aren’t marked or because the text is so tiny. Great for checking passives, we like them for QA procedure and also to make sure our 0402 RF components are the right values before soldering them in. You can also use it on live circuitry to verify voltage.
DT71 Mini Digital Tweezers feature a pair of thickened gold-plated interchangeable tweezer tips. The tips can automatically measure SMDs including resistor, capacitor, inductance, voltage, frequency, and diode. Meanwhile, a built-in miniature waveform signal generator can output a variety of waveform signals. The DT71 Mini Digital Tweezers are a chic, well-designed addition to your toolkit for testing and debugging.
Simply ‘grab’ a resistor, capacitor, diode, or LED to test. It has a “scanning” mode where it will try to guess what type of component you have, or you can select the component type with the Function button and it will auto-range for you. We find these ideal for checking unmarked-SMD values, and LED polarity/colors! Comes in a nice clear hard case and an extra set of tips.
