A general primer in important equipment in a scientific laboratory.


Multimeters

  • Measuring voltage
  • Measuring current (check that fuse isn't blown!)
  • Measuring resistance and testing for continuity
  • AC signals
  • Clamp meter

Power Supplies

  • Digital and Analog
  • Floating and grounding
  • Current/voltage limiting

Function Generators

(Should look at this in tandem with the following oscilloscope discussion)

  • Frequency, amplitude, offset, phase
  • Frequency sweep/ramp
  • Sine, square (incl. TTL), triangle, sawtooth, arbitrary waveforms (possibly a demonstration of Fourier components)

Oscilloscopes

RF Signals

Lock-in Amplifier

Frequency Counters

RF Spectrum Analyzer

Soldering
