Now with the rapid advancement of science and technology scientist are able to invent new things each and every day. The day to day items in our household have now evolved over the years and have become more convenient and efficient. And yet scientists have not stopped their research and still continue to leave man flabbergasted at the latest inventions and breakthroughs. There are various types of instruments that a made for various purposes and it could be for the usage at home, office or large industries and all these equipment have varying functions and specialities to one another. Some instruments are used to measure the change of something while some are used to test for various limitations. A few instruments and their functions are mentioned below.
Testing for electronic products
Factories that make electronic products in a bulk quantity find it hard to check each and every product properly so they have a series of test they need to perform to verify the quality of the product. Sometimes there are testing’s done manually by a worker, sometimes it is automated by a machine and sometimes it requires the help of an instrument. IP testing is one type of testing used on electronic products and it can also be used on fluid media.
IP testing stands for Ingress Protection and is mainly used for the checking of enclosures. Another type of electronic testing is temperature and humidity testing. This test helps determine the products stability at different temperatures and humidity’s. Vibration testing is another method and in this method the product undergoes various types of stress to see how far it can be pushed and all these will help it beat the real life environmental obstacles.
Other types of instruments
The thermometer of course is available now in every house hold and has become a necessity. It helps to determine the temperature of a particular substance. It is now used for many purposes but mainly to check for one’s body temperature. Another household use of the thermometer is the fact that they can be sued while cooking and baking to make sure the temperature is the right amount. It can still be used in laboratory experiments to measure the temperature of the water bath or solvent. There is a variety of thermometers available and they are the thermocouple thermometer, the clinical thermometer and the digital thermometer. Another instrument that is also important is the weighing scale. It can be used to measure one’s body weight and weight of a given food item.
