This category covers:
Instruments and devices used by engineers to determine the scope, quantity or extent of a particular item; to assess that it meets certain criteria; or investigate whether it is in proper working order. Includes environmental testing, vision, sound and vibration testing, position and proximity testing, force strain and speed testing, electrical testing, non-destructive testing and metrology systems.
Linear Technology has introduced the LTC2965 and LTC2966 3.5V to 100V, single- and dual-channel voltage monitors that draw only 6µA of quiescent current. The devices’ small size, wide operating range and low power consumption make them suitable for applications including battery-powered equipment, telecom systems and automotive and industrial electronics.

You are correct when you state that the grill will affect your measurements. In fact, all infrared (IR) window lenses affect the transmission rate of the target temperature. Regardless of the type of IR window you are using, you need to test and adjust your IR camera for the transmissivity of the lens material you are using. This value can vary by camera even if it is the same make and model of camera. This is due to differences of the detectors in the IR cameras.
As Leuze electronic explains here, the ongoing automation in many industries is constantly facing new challenges resulting from the required flexibility. In order picking as well as in production and further processing, widely varying goods follow in direct succession. As a result, it must be possible to quickly and easily change over and adapt today’s machines from large series with identical objects to individual products — ideally in an order-related, not batch-related manner.
It is necessary to measure the resistance of all wires and cables that are used to distribute power, including the cable used to wire domestic property, says Nathan Barwell, business development engineer at Seaward Group.
According to Mike Baker at Sherborne, sensors will often be called upon to operate in extreme environments, withstanding effects such as heat, mechanical stress/shock and vibration, as well as working within areas of electromagnetic interference. Under these conditions, it is vital that sensors are able to maintain a consistently high level of accuracy and reliability.
As IRISS explains in this Tech Byte, visual inspection of plant equipment is one of the most useful tools available. A good set of eyes and the ability to see subtle changes in equipment is invaluable. For more than two decades, predictive maintenance (PdM) technicians have used best practices to walk around equipment seeing, smelling and listening before they open their PdM toolbox and begin an infrared, ultrasonic or vibration inspection. A new drip pattern on the floor, a change ...

Voltage transformers (VTs) are used in electrical grids for metering and/or protection purposes. The high requirements regarding their precision demand a calibration of the objects before installation. The accuracy classes of VTs are different for protection and metering transformers and are classified depending on the maximum ratio and phase-angle error between the vectors of the primary voltage and the secondary voltage related to the primary side.
