Product Introduction

DT71 Mini Digital Tweezers is a multi-function measure tool with a fully differential input and built-in signal generator. DT71 has a unique ternary structure, which can be split into a controller, test arms  and tweezer tips, flexible in replacement and combination. DT71 uses thickened gold-plated tweezer tips, which can be replaced according to the application scenario. It can measure various devices such as resistor, capacitor, inductor, voltage, frequency, diode, etc. to help users quickly identify components. The built-in micro signal generator of DT71 can output a variety of signals, providing a perfect solution for the debugging and maintenance of complex electronic systems and the classification and detection of discrete chip components.

How to charge

Insert the 3.Smm male plug of the dedicated data cable into DT71’s test arms, and then connect a DCSV power supply to charge the test arms. The charging indicator light is always on when charging, and off when fully charged.

FIG 9 How to charge

Automatic sleep and wake up

DT71 has automatic sleep function, when DT71 remains static for 60 seconds (factory setting), it will automatically enter sleep mode; When you need to use it again, close (short-circuit) the tweezer tips to wake up DT71 to enter user interface.

 

Measure

Preparation before measuring

Before measuring, please connect DT71 controller to test arms, or short-circuit the tweezer tips to wake up DT71. When the screen displays, select the correct measure mode to start measuring.

Measure parameters and accuracy:

Zero Calibration

  1. Long press DT71’s touch button to switch to calibration mode (Calibration);
  2. Keep the tweezer tips closed and short circuit until the screen prompts the next step;
  3. Open the tweezer tips and keep it open until the screen prompts the next step;
  4. After the open calibration is successful, the screen will prompt whether to save the calibration data, tap the touch button to confirm and save.
    * If you mistakenly enter calibration mode, long press the touch button to exit.

Accurate Calibration
For accurate calibration, please visit www.miniware.com.cn and download the DT71 calibration accessories, and operate according to the instructions.
