"The "Capacitor Wizard®" meter is a very useful capacitor analyzer from Midwest Devices LLC. It uses the ESR (equivalent series resistance) method for determining a capacitors' "health". Capacitor testing can be problematic using other solutions. The ESR method detects problems with a device due to changes in the dielectric constant or the electrolytic compound drying out and really measures the overall "health" of a device and not just its capacitance value. This is an indispensable piece of test equipment for a system designer or product technician!!!!" Quote from past customers of Mid West : “This is one of the best pieces of equipment I have. You people have designed a great tool. Sure makes for fast identification of bad Caps. I am glad I bought the Cap. Wiz. I was so impressed that I have told others about this tool and they have purchased their own Cap Wizards. They are equally impressed." Bernhardt Services

4 out of 5 stars Nice item for techs that don't have $5000 for an L 03/12/2016
Reviewer: Seth Burgin (seb-ear-aaaa@cox.net) from Phoenix, State Of Confusion, And Disarray US
A cheap LCR capacitance meter bridge circuit will show good capacitance readings, but I have seen capacitors that partially blew apart still test with a good capacitance, but not a good ESR, D or Q reading. These were obviously not for for use, but they tested good, and that was with a $5000 tester. When I hit the ESR key, it becomes obvious, even if the end has not been blown off the cap, and it looks normal. This tester uses the same charts as the old Sencore Z meters. If the ESR is not good, the cap can leak, and cause damage to other components in the circuit. This is a very portable & reliable way to make those tests, without dragging an LCR and a high voltage (600 VDC) Z meter around. I think these are a tad overpriced, but they are a good product. I keep one around. I thought they stopped making these, but here they are.
