Practicing metrologists often do not have enough examples of the reference documents use to solve their measurement tasks. One of such tasks is the calibration of measuring devices. The difficulty is caused by National State Standard 8.820–2013 which equaled different accuracy standards like uncertainty of measurement, precision and inaccuracy. In practice the same measuring methods may bring to various calibration results. In the present article professor Levin S. suggests three different solutions for one measurement task.

Advanced semiconductors now support previously unattainable efficiency and power density. At the same time, however, they place higher demands on T&M equipment used in the development of power electronics. Oscilloscopes with isolated input channels are ideal measuring systems, providing a wide range of analysis capabilities on the level of a laboratory oscilloscope.

It’s well known that almost all manufacturers of test and measuring devices try to widen the functionality of them with various options. Thus a multimeter capable of measuring temperature, frequency and pulse ratio besides the standard parameters like current and voltage has already become a quite common device. Now it’s time to modify higher level devices, for example oscilloscopes. AKTAKOM ADS-6xxx series oscilloscopes has a very wide range of functions at affordable price. There are several options available for these oscilloscopes and in most of cases for some certain measurement tasks they can be even irreplaceable. The present article considers some ADS-6xxx options namely built-in generator, multimeter and touch screen.

It’s a well-known fact that in order to achieve good results it’s necessary to use high quality instruments. Power supply is considered one of the most necessary instruments in modern radio engineering laboratories or at manufacturing site. At the same time the requirements to the output voltage (current) parameters keep on growing annually causing the device price growth accordingly. Nevertheless it’s still possible to find a good measuring device within the low-cost product range. One of such examples is AKTAKOM APS-5333 power supply with 3 channels, output regulated voltage of 0…30 V and output current of 0…3 A.

In previous issues of our magazine we published the articles dedicated to various test and measuring devices produced by RIGOL Technologies, Inc. We provided full and detailed information about such equipment like spectrum analyzers, digital oscilloscopes, signal generators, programmable power supplies. This time the present article will cover programmable electronic loads. This is the main innovative product of 2017 for the company and in general electronic loads production is the new trend for RIGOL. New RIGOL electronic loads series introduced in Spring 2017 got DL3000 model index and it contains four DC models: DL3021, DL3021A, DL3031 and DL3031A. Maximum input voltage for all models is 150 V and input current — 40 A (DL3021, DL3021A) or 60 A (DL3031, DL3031A). Find more details in the present article.

At first glance, it’s clear that the recently unveiled Tektronix 5 Series MSO mixed signal oscilloscope looks much different from other oscilloscopes in its class. For one, the screen takes up 85 percent of the front panel compared to about 50 percent on most scopes. Your next clue that this is not just another oscilloscope is the number of analog inputs — up to eight — compared to the more typical four. As you power on the scope and connect it up your device for testing, you’ll see that this is something more than just a warmed-over version of last year’s scope. It’s a complete end-to-end redesign.

When laying or repairing cable routes it’s often necessary to detect cables and correctly determine their routes. And very often this is associated with a long time taken therefore, especially if the cable is located in a hard-to-reach place and if there are several cables in the conduit. In addition when repairing a damaged cable it is always necessary to accurately determine the place of breakage or short circuit, select the required conductor in the cable or cable assembly or determine the presence and location of protective devices in the circuit. In some cases the cable determining process has to be taken without removing the voltage from it. Multifunctional AKTAKOM ACT-1112 cable locater is a perfect device for this type of work. Also it can be used for tracing metallic water and heating pipes…
