A wide variety of test equipment are used to gather data about electronics, machines and ambient conditions for troubleshooting, safety and reliability. Many options are handheld for rapid diagnostics and field use.
Equipment types include multimeters and oscilloscopes for general purpose testing, and dedicated meters that measure air quality, sound, light, resistance and temperature. Other examples include application-specific equipment, like tachometers, railroad testers and anemometers.
Test equipment can be bundled together in kits, with various accessories and complementary equipment that assist bench or field personnel with almost any task they will encounter on the job.
