Paper recording charts and consumables consist of circular charts, strip charts, markers, fanfolds, sheets, pens, and pen arms used in chart and strip recording instruments.
Data acquisition is the digitizing and processing of multiple sensor or signal inputs for the purpose of monitoring, analyzing and/or controlling systems and processes. Signal conditioning includes the amplification, filtering, converting, and other processes required to make sensor output suitable for rereading by computer boards.
Data loggers and data recorders acquire digital data from sensors and other signals. They are primarily used to store data for subsequent downloads to a host PC, but may also include real-time features such as monitors and alarms.
Digital ammeters are instruments that measure current flow in amperes and display current levels on a digital display. These devices provide information about current draw and current continuity in order to help users troubleshoot erratic loads and trends
Digital multimeters (or multi-meters) are used to measure electrical quantities such as voltage, current, resistance, frequency, temperature, capacitance, and time period measurements.
Digital resistance meters are instruments that measure electrical resistance. They use solid-state components and display values digitally.
Digital voltmeters are instruments that measure voltage or voltage drop in a circuit. They use solid-state components and display values digitally.
Electronics test fixtures are used to test contact points on circuit boards during manual or automated testing.
Electrostatic discharge generators are machines used to generate electrostatic discharge (ESD) signals to test how much ESD a piece of electronic equipment can tolerate without damage.
Environmental test chambers and rooms are used to ensure the reliability of industrial products, especially electronic items, through prolonged exposure to one or more environmental parameters.
Frequency meters are instruments that provide analog outputs as frequencies that vary as a function of the applied input. They display values on a dial, usually with a needle or moving pointer.
Battery, fuel cell and solar test equipment consists of specialized test stations, stands or systems, monitors and component modules for performance or endurance testing.
Hardness testers measure a material's resistance to indentation. This calculation is determined by measuring the permanent depth or projected area of the indentation.
Instrument calibration services test equipment and calibrate them to various standards.
ISDN testers verify the communication services provided by ISDN equipment.
Laboratory thermometers are used to measure temperatures or temperature changes with a high degree of precision. Traditional liquid-in-glass design offers ease of use and low cost.
LCR meters and impedance meters measures inductance (L), capacitance (C), and resistance or impedance (R).
Logic analyzers are used to characterize and debug hardware, design and test firmware and software, and perform synthesis integration.
Noise, vibration, and harshness test equipment are equipment used to test and monitor noise, vibration, and harshness in mechanical and electrical systems.
Oscilloscopes translate an electronic signal into a pattern or waveform on a screen. As it is traced across the screen, the waveform creates a signature of the signal's characteristics.
Packet generators create a discrete chunk of communication in a pre-defined format.
Power quality analyzers measure and monitor electrical power parameters to avoid disturbances, track steady-state variations, and ensure the reliability of power distribution systems.
Scalar network analyzers measure the amplitude portion of scattering or S-parameters, reflection and transmission coefficients between the incident and reflection waves that describe a device’s behavior under linear conditions at the microwave frequency range.
Signal generators and waveform generators are used to test and align all types of transmitters and receivers, to measure frequency and to generate a signal, waveform or noise source. Signal generators can use AC energy, audio frequency (AF) and radio frequency (RF) to function.
Spectrum analyzers and signal analyzers display raw, unprocessed signal information such as voltage, power, period, wave shape, sidebands, and frequency. They can provide the user with a clear and precise window into the frequency spectrum.
Temperature forcing systems provide heating, cooling and/or a humidity and temperature controlled atmosphere to a separate test chamber, platform, or testing unit.
Transformer Test Equipment consists of specialized test modules or systems used to test and/or monitor electrical and mechanical parameters of transformers and other related devices.
