Topics relating to devices used for measurement, such as oscilloscopes and probes

Subcategories

  • Computerized instrumentation - the use of computers to control, regulate, and measure systems
  • Coordinate measuring machines - or CMM, a device for measuring the physical geometric characteristics of an object
  • Electric variables - the signals of electric systems that can be controlled or measured for performance
  • Monitoring - the continuous examination of electrical systems to ensure stability and operation
  • Oscilloscopes - also known as O-scopes, an electronic test instrument that measures varying signal voltage
  • Potentiometers - also known informally as a pot, a three terminal transistor with a sliding contact that forms a an adjustable voltage divider
