Test and measurement equipment is used across a wide variety of fields, including in electronics, material analysis, manufacturing, research and particle analysis. In all capacities the test and measurement equipment is sued to measure various components of materials being worked with, and further analyse those materials.
This type of equipment is used in electrical and electronic testing, with function and accuracy tests defined by mandatory standards and regulations or that form part of an established quality assurance concept. To ensure correct measurement it’s important that all equipment is high quality and has been calibrated correctly.
In the electronics industry ohmmeters, voltmeters, ammeters, capacitance meters, EMF meters (to measure electronic and magnetic fields), digital pattern generators, signal generators, pulse generators, oscilloscopes and frequency counters are all used to produce signals and then measure the response of the object being tested.
