DISCONTINUED—Deluxe Universal LCR Meter

Model 879

The 879 measures capacitance, resistance (of non-inductive components) and inductance. Components can be measured with selectable test frequencies in series or parallel modes as desired. The 4 1/2 digit main LCD displays values to 19,999, and the secondary 3 digit 1,000 count display reads D or Q. Both models can be used in either auto ranging or manual ranging modes.


  • Selectable test frequencies 100Hz, 120Hz, 1KHz, 10KHz
  • Simultaneously displays measured component value and Q or Dissipation Factor (D)
  • Display hold
  • Relative mode
  • Tolerance mode
  • Backlight
