Default Re: Capacitor ESR

I got the impression ESR is important and that caps can test OK on other paremeters but if ESR is wrong, they won't work.

I read that Bob Parker seems to have credit for inventing ESR meters. Has lots of info on ESR meter kits.

Looking around at various ESR meter kits, I found Peak Electronics UK - fully built ESR meters. I got several of their meters and have found them really useful, since they measure a load of thing my Fluke multimeter won't do. I bought direct from Peak for a lot less money than I could find locally.
