Electrical Test Equipment
Electrical systems must be tested for proper operation when they are installed and also periodically for maintenance purposes.
The use of electronic test instruments and meters generally involves:
1. Troubleshooting electrical / electronic circuits and equipment
2. Verifying proper operation of instruments and associated equipment
The test equipment selected for a specific task depends on the type of measurement and the level of accuracy required. These measurements are taken using various types of electrical test equipment.
Electricians must be able to select the right test equipment for the application.
