Test and MeasurementSubscribe
Test and Measurement is critical for finding those issues within an electronic system design that prevent it from being fully functional.
Electronic components are also subject to a variety of tests that involve anything from physical inspection to product-level functional testing to verifying functionality in a network environment. However unglamorous as it is, Test & Measurement is an essential asset to the electronics design process.

From experience it can be tricky! Thermocouple produce such a small signal that any induced voltage can be an issue (even RF), RTD's are a coil in glass or a copper foil and are also susceptible to changing...
The coil is good for large current applications. However, in small current measurement I see there is some accuracy issues. Good article and would be better if there was some physics to help the reader...
You would not know if a load / strain gauge version of this is available?
Not sure if this will help to select the part, but some points to consider.
Most of these Peltiers are designed for heat/cool applications so they don't specify the generating efficiency, which...
The first USS Enterprise missions began in 2265, so I can imagine Scotty signed up a few years before that, 1966 indeed!
The advantages of thermal cameras are well known for use in preventative maintenance, but often mechanical and electrical systems are protected behind panels and cabinets, installing a FLIR IR Window will allow thermal measurement.
Most scope companies design the scope/probe response to be as flat as possible throughout its specified frequency range, and most customers simply rely on the specified bandwidth of the oscilloscope or oscilloscope probes.
The new version of Keysight’s 2U ¼-form factor power supply (E36100B) now comes with improved ripple noise, up to 6x improvement in output noise performance (Vrms).
For companies, air quality control is critical as unfavourable environmental conditions can become a major source of stress in any work situation. These factors can cause discomfort and even high absenteeism, affecting the health of employees.
We compare MEMS accelerometer in the Google Pixel smartphone to an IEPE vibration measurement system and show when a professional solution is neccessary to obtain valuable test results.
Electronic loads can help investigate the behaviour of many different types of high voltage DC power sources, such as PFCs, batteries, solar cells, fuel cells or wind generators, as well as electronic power supply units.
With the current Internet of Things (IoT) revolution, expansion of data transmissions leads telecommunication systems getting more advanced and thus now more vulnerable to power quality problems.
Tracing and identifying network faults can be time consuming, so it’s important all cables and panels are clearly marked and it's never been so easy with the simplified solution of DYMO® ID software & Fluke’s LinkWare™ Live.
The Test and Measurement Basics DAQ video series demonstrates how quick and easy it is to use Keysight DAQ with short and informative episodes that reveal how to save hours of your time with software connections, hardware interfaces and so much more.
If you are dealing with more than a couple tens of amperes of AC current and want to make flexible current measurements, consider the Rogowski current probe.
DPI 620 Genii portable Multi-Function Calibrator – calibration, measurement and communication in a single tool
Until now, technicians have needed a wide range of different, individual instruments for calibration and pressure measurement. The DPI 620 Genii roles all those instruments into one!
