Test Instruments and Devices Library
About this class
This four (4) lesson program trains participants on the principles and procedures of various test devices.
This lesson is designed for participants familiar with process control instruments. An understanding of basic algebra is also recommended.
This comprehensive INVOLVE?? interactive multimedia training program was produced in association with the Instrument Society of America (ISA). This four-lesson program trains participants on the principles and procedures of various test devices.
This program is excellent f or control personnel and instrument technicians as well as for the multi- craft training needs of process and manufacturing facilities.
This lesson presents operating principles and procedures for using a
variety of test devices including manometers, test gages, portable
pneumatic and hydraulic calibrators, and pneumatic and hydraulic
deadweight testers. Selection of the appropriate test device for a
particular instrument calibration is also discussed.
- Pneumatic and Hydraulic Test Devices
This lesson describes the operation of electronic test devices as well
as the measurement units used with typical test procedures. The lesson
also presents the operation of multimeters and multifunction electronic
calibrators in electronic test procedures.
This lesson describes the features of a temperature calibrator and how
calibrator temperature and sensor type are configured. This lesson also
describes the reading and maintenance of thermocouplers and
- Temperature and Frequency Test Devices
This lesson presents the operating principles and procedures for using
analog and digital oscilloscopes. The lesson also provides an
understanding of how these test devices work, the functions performed,
and how they are utilized. Procedures for using an oscilloscope to
measure amplitude, period, and frequency are also demonstrated.
