Test and Measurement Instruments
Test Measurement and Test jigs:
are needed for Troubleshooting and Repairing
Electronic Gadgets, Equipment, Electrical Panels and Machines.
Precision Instruments are required for calibration of field and
machine control electronics. These are also required by the R&D
for design and development of new products and
trying out new concepts.
In Production testing, Production
, Quality Assurance QA-QC etc. You need to
build Test Jigs, Configure Automated Testing depending on the
size of project or budget allocated; yet it has to be made
flexible, scalable and modular. These require instruments or
blocks that can be adapted and reconfigured or even interface
with a computing network for automated testing, reporting and
Test and Measurement Instruments designed by delabs in the
Special Electronics come with every tool or gadget these days, A
Slide calipers has a LCD display, Digital Readouts on mechanical
instruments can help measure even sub-microns easily. Analytical
and Chemical Instrumentation is another specialized niche.
Then we have medical instrumentation which is more demanding in
quality and requires sensors that are small, very sensitive and
Instrumentation goes into all these and beyond. The day we find
water on mars, It is only because of a precision instrument at
the helm of things.
Circuits you need for scaling an analog DC value.
Functions and Fourier Series. Periodic Waveforms. Watch Sine,
Square, Triangle and Sawtooth Waves and Study Controls. This DIY
is a Real Time Graph of Volts Y and Time X at
any node of a circuit. It can show both AC and DC.
Load an equation of your own and see it as a waveform on this
web scope. Paste a Formula in the Equation text box, load it, it
will be rendered as waveform on scope. Learn from this page ....
Let us assume Physics, Chemistry and Biology as Verticals on a
Horizontal plane called Science. A part of Physics developed
into Magnetism and Electricity, which further evolved into Electrical
a Technology. When a branch of Science is
applied to develop, evolve and maintain Life on this Planet it
becomes a Technology. Electrical Engineering as a Technology has
evolved and branched out into many specialized domains. With the
coming of Semiconductors and the Advancements of Material
Technologies, Electronics Engineering emerged as a foundation or
a Horizontal for many new Verticals.
One such Vertical is Instrumentation, here you know Industrial
is one and the other is Test and
Measurement. The third branch we learn about today is
"Analytical Instrumentation Technologies" which is more like an
Oblique, it Cuts thru Physics, Chemistry and Biology and many of
its sub-branches. It also supports the areas called Life
Sciences, Bio Technology, GeoSciences, Materials Science etc.
Analytical instruments ... Laboratory Analytical, - Research and
Lab Instruments, Bio and Earth Science.
