Hansen model SC multitester

Small but a many functions

Small but a many functions

An other rare Japanese meter. It is small (14x9x3cm) but heavy. The manual is from model SM.

It has some very unusual functions. It has a separate dB input, a function to test tubes and it can be used as a megger. Besides that it can measure L, C and R

The function knob markings are in bad shape.

To bad the function knob markings are in a bad shape. There are some arrows that tell you what voltage you need for a function. These voltages are stated on the cabinet. For instance in the Rx0.1 meg Ohm function the arrow points at 230-350VDC. So to use it as a megger you need an external DC supply between 230 and 350V. B+ in most tube equipment was in that range.

The display window is real glass but it is not clear.  That makes it a bit hard to read.

The input sockets are for + ,  Рand dBm.

The meter is heavy for such a small instrument. The top is Bakelite, the underside is metal. As far as I know it came in a velvet lined wooden box.
