Using Electronic Test Equipment, Part 3

SKU: ACCDA30CENDuration: 60 Minutes

This course focuses on five common pieces of electronic test equipment used for troubleshooting and calibration of electronic circuits and instruments. These are a resistance decade box, a signal generator, an alternating current/direct current (AC/DC) power supply, a vacuum tube tester, and a millivolt potentiometer. The course begins with a discussion of bridge circuits. This discussion provides a background for the explanation of the resistance decade box.

  • Explain how circuits inside a resistance decade box enable it to simulate a resistance.
  • Identify the front panel controls on a typical resistance decade box.
  • Use a resistance decade box to simulate the resistance of an RTD in a temperature monitoring system that uses a Wheatstone bridge circuit.
  • Explain the purpose of a signal generator.
  • Identify the front panel controls on a typical signal generator.
  • Use a signal generator to check the operation of an amplifier.
  • Identify thermal imagers and associated use.
  • Explain the use of a HART monitor.
