Capacitance Meter

A capacitance meter is a piece of electronic test equipment used to measure capacitance, mainly of discrete capacitors. Depending on the sophistication of the meter, it may display the capacitance only, or it may also measure a number of other parameters such as leakage, equivalent series resistance (ESR), and inductance. For most purposes and in most cases the capacitor must be disconnected from circuit; ESR can usually be measured in circuit.

“Hello, this is a mine multyfunctional Arduino device. It can be used to test sensors that are connected to analog pins, to measure resistance, to measure the voltage drop of the diode. It can measure ambient temperature, it has built …

Arduino Nano Capacitance Meter

“This project is pratically three components because it’s formed of a 16X2 LCD Display, a potentiometer 10K, and an Arduino Nano. The rest of parts are a PCB 5cm x 7cm, 1 X 40 HEADER, 0.1” SPACING, and …

The Attiny85/45 Capacitor Tester

“Many multi meters (like mine) don’t have the functionality of measuring capacitance. This is especially annoying as one has no way of determining how accurate a capacitor is. If you doubt your resistor you can easily measure it, but …

Talking Multimeter

“The talking multimeter uses the PIC32MX250F128B as a voltmeter, ohmeter, and capacitance meter that speaks the reading as it is measured. Spoken measurements improve the usability of measurement devices since the user will be able to focus on the circuit …

Simple capacitance meter

“This tool is used to test capacitors. It is really easy to make, as only additional hardware needed (besides the capacitor that will be tested) is 2x220ohm resistors.”

Capacitor Tester / Capacitance Meter

“If, like myself, you’ve got an enormous stash of unlabelled electronic components that seem to look like capacitors, it’s probably a good idea to either throw them away or test them with a capacitance tester. Furthermore, there’s …

Dr Brown’s Capacitor ESR Tester

” I finally got round to making my capacitor ESR tester this week after finding a nice simple 5 transistor version by EEVBlog member Jay_Diddy_B. Unfortunately, for me, the design was only SMD so, I decided to replicate his schematic in …
