Trends in the measurement and test equipment industry.
Have you experienced too much IoT-like sensor information causing false alarms, and subsequent unnecessary shutdowns of the system, or just ignoring of all alarms?
The number and types of sensors are growing significantly. EE Times discusses how this also could result in many unforeseen system-oversight implications.
"As any experienced engineer knows, sensors are the most vulnerable part of a system. Due to their inherent role, sensors are exposed to the nasty real world of moisture, vibration, temperature, and other physical stresses to a lesser or greater extent. Sometimes the exposure is directly due to what is being monitored, but often it is a side effect of monitoring some other parameter. Regardless of the cause, sensors live a much harder life than the electronics on the typical PC board, even if that board is in an automotive environment.
The problem is that as we add IoT sensors to everything, we'll be seeing more false positives and negatives that will be harder and harder to test and assess. Soon, planning for how to test the veracity and credibility of the many readings and alarm indicators will become a larger part of the project."
RF energy, through the use of high-power solid-state amplifiers and feedback, could change the way we cook, light our homes, and more Exciting indeed, and as with any new technology, RF energy applications come with engineering challenges such as cost, size, and measurement.

Research and Markets announced that the test and measurement market is expected to continuously grow through 2019 in the communication and semiconductor sectors.
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Test and Measurement Equipment Market in APAC 2015-2019" report to their offering.
Test and Measurement equipment leases have grown significantly over the past few years, and are expected to continue to grow over the next few decades. We offer the lowest monthly payments, tax benefits, improved financial statements, and flexible lease-end options when you lease from MATsolutions!
While the renting services industry for electronic test equipment is not new, the economic conditions of the past few years have increased awareness about such services, and organizations across industries including aerospace and defense, communications, automotive, and industrial electronics have been more open to complement their test strategy with rental
Changes ahead - light, flexible and eco-friendly comes to plane technology. More details here.
"NASA needs to test the technology extensively, since planes with pliable wings are typically more susceptible to strong winds and vibrations."
It's no surprise that the devices we use every day, such as our smartphones, are expensive. Cell phones can cost upwards of $700 nowadays, and newer models are constantly being introduced. Even so, many users want to upgrade to the newest products when possible. However, others are actually doing the opposite.
This article discusses how some people are trying to keep older devices running longer to help save money. If it is not necessary to have the latest and greatest, why waste the money when you can repair older devices, or keep them up to date?
As a seller of pre-owned test and measurement equipment, we could not agree more. We offer lab certified pre-owned equipment at unbeatable prices to help save you money while providing a high level of quality. For more information on our products, visit our website today.
"Smart phones these days can cost you six or seven hundred dollars and newer models are coming along all the time. Not everyone wants to spend the money on the latest and greatest tech gadget. Lucky for them, it’s easier than ever to keep their gear going."
New York City may soon get a boost in Wi-Fi coverage thanks to...trash cans? That's right, waste management intelligence company, Bigbelly, makes waste receptacles that provide Wi-Fi, and has begun trials in Manhattan. These early tests provide 50-75 Mbps of throughput.
Mayor de Blasio has focused on increasing internet access during his time in office, so it is not surprising that Bigbelly is looking for grant funding from de Blasio's office. The Alliance for Downtown New York has already installed 174 solar-powered Bigbelly trash receptacles which can be updated to support the Wi-Fi technology. The hope is that this technology will provide internet access to areas of the city that are underserved by Wi-Fi. Mayor de Blasio wants his bold internet access plan to create "the fastest and largest municipal Wi-Fi network in the world – accessible to and free for all New Yorkers and visitors alike," and this project is another step towards his end goal.
New York City has made improving Internet access a priority; the latest iteration involves turning trash bins into Wi-Fi hot spots.

Have you ever been in the uncomfortable situation of needing to take electrical measurements of a high voltage inverter while it is in operation where you are at risk of incurring an electrical jolt? Perhaps your job requires you to monitor electrical measurement for some duration at high places which are difficult to reach? How about making measurements in a hazardous environment with unbearable heat, intolerable audible noise level and surrounded with poisonous gas? If some of these risky situations describe your job, you may be pleased to know that there are some measurement instruments that can help you do your job with better safety, by staying away from it. Literally.
