About Multimeters, Function Generators, Counters & Data Acquisition

Multimeters, function generators, counters & data acquisition are all general purpose bench test instruments are vital to engineering innovation around the world.


Arbitrary Waveform Generators

An arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) is a piece of electronic test equipment used to generate electrical waveforms. These waveforms can be either repetitive or single-shot (once only) in which case some kind of triggering source is required (internal or external).

Data Acquisition Systems

Data acquisition systems (or DAQ systems), as the name implies, are products and/or processes used to collect information to document or analyse some phenomenon. In the simplest form, a technician logging the temperature of an oven on a piece of paper is performing data acquisition.

Frequency Counters

Frequency counters are test instruments used in many applications associated with radio frequency engineering to measure the frequency of signals very accurately.

LCR Meters

An LCR meter is a type of electronic test equipment used to measure the inductance (L), capacitance (C), and resistance (R) of an electronic component. In the simpler versions of this instrument the impedance was measured internally and converted for display to the corresponding capacitance or inductance value.

A multimeter or a multitester, also known as a VOM (volt-ohm-milliammeter), is an electronic measuring instrument that combines several measurement functions in one unit. A typical multimeter can measure voltage, current, and resistance.
