RS offer an expansive range of test and measuring instruments used in electrical and electronic work. Electrical testing is a vital procedure for any product that uses electricity.
The test and measurement equipment will reveal:
Precision measuring tools are essential because if there are electric current measurement errors this can prove costly. By having confidence in each measurement, manufacturers save time and money, and improve the quality of their products.
Measurement units can include the following:
Energy - joule (J)
Power - watt (W)
Electromotive force - volt (V)
Electric field strength - volt per metre
Electric resistance - ohm (Ω)
Electric conductance - siemens (S)
Capacitance - farad (F)
Magnetic flux - weber (Wb)
Magnetic flux density - tesla (T)
Inductance - henry (H)
Magnetic field strength - ampere per metre
Magnetomotive force - ampere (A)
Test and measurement equipment is used in various fields to measure and analyse various components such as:
The types of test and measure equipment that will be needed depends on the types of materials being tested and which of their properties need to be measured. Size, durability, portability and cost are also key factors.
