Effectiveness of Various Types of Electrical Test Equipment


Electrical gadgets and other equipments have been a part of our daily life for quite some time now. With advanced technology in place, these equipments have become far more efficient and convenient to use.

 These electrical equipments have made tasks much easier and thus, there is less time consumed in performing any such related task. These benefits have proved to be more effective in the industrial products which are used in the form of various electrical test and tag equipments.

 These test equipments are of various types and can be classified accordingly based on the industry that it is used in. Among the more commonly used electrical equipments are battery testers, backplane testers, burn-in test equipments and automated test equipment.

 Given below are a few facts about all these different types of testing equipments:

 Battery Testers

 These are often accompanied by equipment meant for testing fuel cells. These are specialised systems which are meant for performance and endurance testing. These are used to monitor and analyse the battery cell's temperature, charge, DC resistance, amperage and voltage resistance.

 Backplane Testers

 These are highly recommended for testing various electronic components like resistors and capacitors. Use of these equipments enables high speed communication. These are also used for effective networking and can be sub categorised as in-circuit testers or continuity analysers. These are basically printed form of circuit boards which have different slots and sockets used to test many different types of electronic devices.

 Burn-in Testing Equipment

 The burn-in tester is also a part of the list of various electrical equipments used for testing. It helps in analysing power chips and boards with the use of temperatures, power cycling and voltages. The burn in testing is important as it is something that is used to test every finishing device that also has a semiconductor device. Thus, the burn in tester is often associated with the semiconductor manufacturing industry.

 Automated Test Equipment

 Of all the electrical equipments meant for testing, this is considered to be the most advanced equipment. With the help of computers it tests and measures a different type of industrial unit. The equipment is considerably costly especially for starters. Proper technical know how is required to set up this equipment and expertise is also required during the programming stages.

 This equipment is popularly used to test various components like interconnections, verifications and printed circuit boards.
