In this article I talk about the BSIDE ESR02 Pro, a device to test transistors, capacitors, diodes, and other electronic components, both PTH as SMD. He was acquired on AliExpress, shop BSIDE TRADE HONGKONG CO., LTD Store.
Recently I wrote an article talking about the repair of my cellar EasyCooler 8 Model bottles 4092640045. I ended up changing all electrolytic capacitors, because there was no way to test them properly only with the multimeter. At least not in a practical way.
I ended up deciding to use part of the money that I saved with the repair of the cellar, or with the purchase of a new wine cellar, to invest in BSIDE ESR02 Pro. In the case of capacitors, He not only shows the capacitance, but also the E.S. R. (Equivalent Series Resistance), What helps in the task of finding defective capacitors.
Choice of BSIDE ESR02 Pro
There are a lot of similar equipment to BSIDE ESR02 Pro there on AliExpress. Some are cheap, but use a label naked, without a proper case. The BSIDE ESR02 Pro is more expensive, but it's much more completinho.
The BSIDE ESR02 Pro tests both PTH and SMD components. Has contacts with a resistance to discharge capacitors before testing them. And has terminals for connecting probes, enabling test components without removes them from the plate.
Here it is a note: I'm no expert in electronics, but I believe that depending on the direct test circuit on the Board can indicate incorrect values. But anyway it's good to have probes to facilitate some tests.
Unboxing and Tests
The BSIDE ESR02 Pro It came in an envelope, with your little box wrapped with bubble wrap, arriving in perfect condition. The box highlights features of the equipment and the technical data of the same. Inside the equipment and instruction manual in English, that is quite useful.
At the top of the BSIDE ESR02 Pro We have the LCD display, the two operating buttons, the terminals for SMD components, the terminals for unloading, the terminals for PTH components test, and terminals for use of probes.
At the bottom we have the battery compartment. It works with a 9V battery (not included). I'm using a rechargeable lithium ion battery of Soshin, no problem.
At the bottom there is also a table with typical values of ESR for electrolytic capacitors as the capacitance and voltage.
On the back of the BSIDE ESR02 Pro We have a DC input 9 the 12V, where we can connect an adapter to use it with electrical energy.
Then did some tests with some capacitors and transistors in BSIDE ESR02 Pro, that can be seen in the pictures below.

The BSIDE ESR02 Pro is easy to use and delivers all the necessary information on the LCD display at once, dispensing more complicated tests with the help of multimeter. Capacitors and transistors can be tested easily. Is a product well done and with many possibilities, especially the terminals for probes and testing of SMD components, that are not available in cheaper models.
Since the arrival of BSIDE ESR02 Pro Fortunately I didn't have to fix anything in that it was necessary. But anyway I'm glad to have you on my team for testing equipment and electronic repairs, because these days is increasingly difficult to find people who actually fix electronics. A maioria das assistências técnicas se limitam a trocar placas, o que em muitos casos acaba custando o preço de um equipamento novo.
