The purpose of power test equipment is to generate signals and capture responses from electrical devices under test. Electric test equipment is vital for electronics systems and is designed for specific applications. This equipment can range from simple and inexpensive (e.g. a test light) to complex and sophisticated (e.g. automatic test equipment).
Essentially, electrical testing refers to the application of voltage or current to a circuit and then comparing the measured value to an expected result.
When dealing with circuits and systems for production testing or troubleshooting on existing production units in a field, more advanced power test equipment is usually required.
What are the different types of power test equipment?
Some different types of power test equipment include:
Voltage detectors (Voltmeter)
High potential Test Set (AC/DC/VLF), High Current Test Sets, Relay Test Sets and Power Factor Test Sets are some other types of power test equipment used in industry sectors.
