Borescopes are instruments used to view or inspect inaccessible spaces found in mechanical constructs, assemblies, automotive engines, turbines, firearms, and buildings. All borescopes generally have three basic components regardless of type or purpose. These are the objective lens, the relay optics stored in either a flexible or rigid tube, or the eye piece.
The objective lens is at the end of the borescope that captures or records and illuminates the object being inspected. The relay connects the objective lens to the eye piece, which magnifies the image for the user.There are three general types of borescopes. These are flexible borescopes, video borescopes, and rigid borescopes.
Flexible borescopes are also known as fiberscopes because this type uses flexible fiber optic tubes to capture images, making them more expensive compared to the other types of borescopes. Flexible borescopes are often used to view objects or spaces found in tight bends or corners typically found in air inlets, turbines, and mechanical engines. The images produced by flexible borescopes are less clear compared to the images produced by the other types of borescopes since the images are prone to pixilation, depending on the number of fiber optics found inside the borescope. The more optical fibers used, the better the quality of the image, which are often found on larger diameter, and more expensive, flexible borescopes.
Video borescopes are similar to flexible borescopes but instead use a small camera at the end of the flexible tube. This type of borescope can use the camera to either capture still images or make a recording of the space being inspected. Most models allow the user to control and move the camera, as well as change how the images are viewed. This added flexibility and features make video borescopes more versatile compared to the other types of borescopes. Furthermore, video borescopes can capture clearer still images compared to flexible borescopes depending on the specifications of the camera.
Finally, rigid borescopes use a rigid tube to house the relay optics. As a result, this type of borescope has the most limited application since it can only view objects or spaces in a straight line. Because of this limitation, rigid borescopes are best suited to use in firearms and in tube or cylindrical assemblies such as automotive cylinders and turbines. Rigid borescopes produce the best image compared to other types of borescopes.
Clamp meters or tong tester is a voltmeter that is equipped with a current meter in the clamp. Clamp meters measures the current flowing though the tested conductor without having to make physical contact with it or to disconnect it from the circuit just to measure it with the meter. The clamp meter achieves this when you clamp the instrument’s jaws around the conductor that is carrying the current.
The primary advantage of using a clamp meter is that it can measure large AC currents (up to 1000 amperes) because most models are equipped with a current transformer. At the same time, most clamp meters also comes with the basic functionality found in most multi-meters allowing the user to make simultaneous measurements, making it an easier and more convenient tool to carry instead of two meters. Clamp meters also make it easier for a team of technicians to inspect a large area given that one technician can get multiple measurements without the help of another.
There are also specialized clamp meters designed to have features to address specific measuring needs. A good example is the QM-1566 clamp meter available which not only can measure up to 1000 amperes in both AC and DC, but also have other features such as diode testing, volt meter, audible continuity testing and a temperature probe. Clamp meters that have a smaller jaw opening would not be suitable in tight compartments or bundled wires. The QM-1566 is again another good example of a clamp meter suitable for this type of situation since its clamp has a jaw opening of 40mm. Most clamp meters would not be as versatile and have these same set of features, making it integral to check for specifications before buying a clamp meter. The clam’s jaw size when open is another important features to consider.
A caliper is a tool used to measure the distance between two opposite points of an object. Basically, a caliper’s points are extended to the two points being measured and the length is measured using the included scale or ruler on the caliper.
There are different types of calipers. These are the Vernier, dial and digital. A Vernier caliper provides a direct reading about the distance between the two sides of an object. These calipers have a calibrated scale, with two jaws as its measuring point. One jaw is fixed and serves as the reference point, while the other jaw moves along the scale. The scale themselves have additional measuring scales that should be added to measurement made on the primary scale.
The dial caliper uses an analog dial together with the scale for measurement. A precise rack and pinion mechanism that is attached to a pointer. Generally, the pointer rotates once whenever a specified length is achieved. This measurement is then added to the measured value using the scale.
The digital caliper uses a digital display that shows the exact measurement in a single value depending on the unit of measurement set by the user. Because the measurement is displayed in a single value, digital calipers the easiest to use compared to the two other types of calipers since there are no additional calculations that needs to be done to make an accurate measurement.
There are also other variations of the caliper. A depth gauge works similarly to a caliper, but instead determines water depth by measuring water pressure and density. Again, the digital variety is the easiest and most convenient to use.
A micrometer looks similar to a caliper but is best suited for precision measurement. Instead of jaws, a micrometer uses an anvil and a spindle for measurement. With each revolution of the rachet, the spindle moves 0.5 mm towards the anvil. The total measurement based on the number of revolutions is then added to the measurement using the main scale.
A multimeter is an electronic instrument that can measure several measurement functions. The basic capability of a multimeter is that it can measure voltage, current and resistance. Some models, especially in a digital multimeter, can have more measurement functions such as capacitance, frequency, temperature, diode, light, humidity and conductance. The two main types of multimeter are digital and analog.
Digital multimeters primarily based their measurements using voltage, have no moving parts and use mainly electronics. Using electronics makes it possible to integrate additional features such as measurement functions for temperature, humidity and capacitance, which is not prevalent in analog multimeters. This makes digital multimeters more versatile than analog.
Using electronics also makes digital multimeters faster and more accurate than analog multimeters. Electronics allow digital multimeters to measure the voltage by rapidly performing multiple measurements and then displays the average value of these measurements. The same principle applies to the other measurement functions in a digital multimeter. Because of this feature, the value displayed in digital multimeter is more accurate than those seen in analog multimeter. The use of electronics also means that the displayed readings are digital, making it easier and more convenient for the user to read and repeat the resulting measurements.
In contrast, analog meters rely on many moving parts for them to work, relying primarily on a needle attached to coil mechanism within a magnet to point out its measurements. Additional circuits inside the meter measures voltage and resistance using the current. This feature makes analog multimeters more prone to breakdown since the instrument will not work even if only one of these parts suddenly malfunction. Using a needle mechanism also makes the measurement harder to read, requiring more time and practice on the part of the user to get it right.
Comparing the described attributes show that digital multimeters are mostly superior to analog. However, it doesn’t mean that analog multimeters are no longer useful. The primary advantage of analog multimeters over digital, is that they provide real time measurement for all its functions, which is more preferred in situations where the current is unstable, requiring continuous monitoring. This is one of the few situations where an analog multimeter works better than digital since the continuous, real time measurement is valued more than the accuracy and versatility of a digital multimeter.
Digital scales are devices that calculate the weight or mass of an object using electronics. Unlike other types of scales, the use of electronics makes weight measurements more accurate compared to traditional scales. The primary reason is that digital scales are easier to calibrate and often have self-calibrating features that reduces possible sources of errors for accurate weight measurement. The use of electronics also means that the measurements are digital making it easier for the user to read, and in most cases record, the measured weights.
Digital scales can come in different form and sizes, but the technology remains similar. Bench scales are meant to handle bigger objects, while smaller scales can be used for travel and personal use.
The use of electronics also it possible to introduce additional functions depending on their intended use and industry. Digital scales meant for personal use can not only measure a person’s weight, but also other metrics such as BMI measurement, body fat, and muscle mass. Industrial, digital scales for shipping and transport used for objects and transport can easily convert an object’s weight into different weight units such as pounds, ounces and kilograms. Industrial digital scales can also be designed with different weight limits, allowing them to measure even the heaviest of cargo accurately. Digital scales used in food processing may all these features and have built-in printers that directly print the weight of food being measured. Digital scales used in research and laboratories maybe more accurate and precise than other models.
All in all, digital scales are more accurate, have more features and are less prone to errors compared to other types of scales. Regardless of whether a digital scale is used, they are a better investment and provide more value than other type of scales.
Distance meters are instruments that either use a laser or ultrasonic to make measurements within a given range or distance. This kind of device is beneficial over other measuring tools like tape measures when there is a need to measure inaccessible or hard-to-reach areas since the distance meter can make measurements from a far. As long as there is a clear line of sight to your target, accurate measurements can be made. The same principle applies when measuring from the ground up. This feature is ideal in hazardous environments where the user cannot simply approach the intended target due to safety concerns.
Another benefit is that distance meters are more accurate than using traditional measuring devices and can easily adopt whatever unit of measure the user prefers. There is very little chance of reading the wrong measurement since the results are digitally displayed. Using distance meters also shorten the task of making measurements. Almost all distance meters can be operated with one hand and the measurements are done and recorded with only a push of a button.
Finally, most distance meters have additional features that allows the user to measure not only the length, but also angles and volume of the space being measured for added utility. This is made possible by built-in Pythagoras functionality that many distance meters have, allowing it triangulate, making it easier to measure different lengths, even in places that involve corners such as corner walls and stairs. The user can add or subtract these measurements without needing a calculator or a notebook. The Laser Distance Meter - Leica DISTO D2 is a good example of a distance meter that has this feature.
Electromagnetic field (EMF ) meters are devices designed to measure ambient electromagnetic fields using sensors or probes. These instruments are used to measure EMF on power cables, home appliances, industrial tools and other devises.
The main factor that determines the specification of EMF meters is the probes. The probes of an EMF meter is responsible for responding and measuring the surrounding electromagnetic fields. EMF probes act like antennas that tune in to specific EMF ranges depending on their specifications. These features are needed since EMF’s span a wide spectrum and are generally described by their frequencies (Hz). Different probes have different ranges of frequencies they can tune on. Some probes are sensitive to a wide spectrum of EMF frequencies, while some probes are tuned only to specific range of EMF frequencies. Different frequencies of EMFs are present depending on the area being investigated. For instance, the signature of EMFs found in our homes and residences is different from the EMF’s found in office buildings, factories, and other industrial areas.
Choosing the appropriate EMF meter therefore lies with the intended purpose the user have in mind. The frequencies of the EMFs and where they are usually located are generally listed or published, with each country or region having distinct differences on how they classify these ranges. For instance, EMF emitted by cellular phones remain fairly consistent in many countries, while the EMF emitted by power cables and telephone lines may vary. The important thing is to become aware and knowledgeable about what frequencies of EMF are needed to be measured, and then choose the appropriate EMF meter that can measure these frequencies. While most probes used in EMF meters can already measure a wide range of EMF, some devices have larger ranges and can measure EMF found in higher frequencies.
The next point of issue is the sensitivity. EMF instruments either use Gauss or Tesla in their measurement. Gauss (G) is the basic unit of measure for EMF, while Tesla (T) is used for higher frequencies (1 T = 104 Gauss). For instance, an EMF meter that uses Gauss would be sufficient for home use, while an EMF meter that can measure in Tesla is suitable when there is a need to measure EMF’s from higher frequencies.
Force gauges are instruments that measure the force generated during a push and pull test. These instruments are used across different industries including research and development, laboratory testing, heavy industry, road safety, quality assurance, construction and in the automotive industry.
Digital force gauges have similar basic parts. These are the load cell, the electronics, the software and the display. The load cell is the part of the instrument where the force is applied that converts it an electrical signal that is then interpreted by the software and then displayed using the selected unit of measure, either in Newtons or pounds. Most hand held models would have a specified weight limit, so choose accordingly depending on the expected weight you need to measure. More sophisticated models can measure larger amounts of force. Generally, when using these devices, a set of acceptable force limits are set depending on the test’s purpose. Various trials are performed to see if the results fall within these limits.
A manometer is a type of instrument that measure pressure using water displacement. Analog manometers contains a column of water or other liquid and the pressure is measured based on how much water is displaced when exposed to air pressure. While this terminology was specific to this type, manometers have now been used to call most pressure gauges that measures differences in pressure, even digital models, which is different from barometers, which measure the total pressure of the atmosphere.
Digital manometers are the modern incarnation that electronically replicates the water displacement principles used in older manometers. Using electronics further improves its efficiency, reliability and accuracy, making digital manometers the instrument of choice for the maintenance and calibration of even more advance machinery.
From a design perspective, digital manometers are the easiest type of manometers to use since they are handheld devices with a user-friendly interface and has a digital display that makes it easier to read the results. Other features are also present in some models such as wireless data uploading, backlight for low-light environments and customized readout settings. All in all, the increased effectiveness and user-friendly features of a digital monitor are more than enough to justify their more expensive cost compared to analog manometers.
Material hardness testers measure the hardness of materials. Hardness is defined as a material’s resistance to deformation, specifically resistance to being scratched, cut, bent, broken, or have its shaped changed when a load is applied. The greater the hardness of the material, the greater its resistance to deformation.
There are different scales used by materials hardness testers in terms of the weight of the load used. These are macro, micro and nano scales. Macro measurement is the simplest of the three scales that aims to gather hardness of a bulk material by testing only a small sample. In terms of weight load, the macro scale uses the heaviest load of the three scales and uses a specified deformable weight load, either the shape of a ball or a pyramid, to test for hardness. The micro scale is used for materials that are brittle and prone to cracking such as fiber glass. The nano scale uses very small amounts of load for even more brittle materials.
The TH-174 Portable Hardness Tester Complete Kit - TH-174C is a good example of a material hardness tester that uses the macro scale since it specialize in measuring the hardness of large and bulky materials. The Barcol-934 is a good example of a material hardness tester in the micro scale, given that fiber glass and similar materials are brittle and easily shatter. Lastly, the Digital Shore A Durometer - ICHF-SHRA is a good example of a nano scale tester given that it is only used in rubber and soft plastics.
Oscilloscopes are used to observe the change in electrical signal over time. These two plot points create the signatures shapes that can be seen on oscilloscopes screens as the fluctuations create a distinct wave patterns when plotted continuously over time. The resulting waveform can be analyzed depending on their unique attributes such as amplitude frequency and time.
Oscilloscopes are widely used in science, medicine, telecommunication and engineering. General purpose oscilloscopes are often used for monitoring purposes while more specialized oscilloscopes are used to analyze specific types of wave patterns such as those used on electrocardiograms. Oscilloscopes are also used in monitoring television and radio signals, as well as in repairing and monitoring the performance of electronic equipment. This is generally the most common use of portable oscilloscopes because these instruments can visually show any abnormalities within the signals or voltage of the instrument being tested. As such, oscilloscopes are mostly used as monitoring and diagnostic devices to be used together with additional instruments for repair and maintenance.
Pressure gauges are instruments that measure pressure using gauge pressure. These instruments are functionally similar with manometers but generic pressure gauges do not use columns of water with their measurements. Regardless, the principle behind the two types of instruments are largely the same.
The pressure measured using pressure gauges is called gauge pressure since manometers measure pressure by comparing the pressure inside a vessel or container with atmospheric temperature. This is different from instruments that use absolute pressure as their pressure mode which doesn’t use atmospheric pressure as a reference point. A vessel that gives a ‘zero’ rating when measured with a manometer means that the pressure inside it is equal to atmospheric pressure and not actually devoid of any pressure at all.
Re Bar locators are instruments specifically designed to identify the location of reinforcement bars in concrete structures. Specifically, the central location in between two reinforcement bars for drilling or mounting purposes without the need to strip off the concrete cover.
Re Bar locators work through pulse-induction. Pulse induction is the process of generating an electromagnetic field by running an electrical current through coils found in the machine. When a metallic object enters this electromagnetic field, a probe within the instrument then measures and points to the direction of the object that reacted with the electromagnetic field. As such, these instruments are specifically designed to locate metallic bars only and would not work with other type of bars.
A refractometer is an instrument designed to measure index of refraction. The index of refraction indicates how light, or any other form of radiation, propagate or ‘bends’ in a medium. This type of instrument is generally used in analyzing liquids given that different liquids would have different refraction index based on their concentration and solubility. Additionally, refractometers can also be used to determine the concentration of the solutes within a solution based on how much these dissolved objects bend the passing light. Practical applications include measuring the salinity of water, the sugar content of liquids, sugar concentration analysis, and identifying different protein types in a solution.
Different refractometer models are available depending on their application. Portable, handheld models are popular for personal use and small business. Bench refractometers are often used in food manufacturing and in laboratories. More expensive refractometers have better and more sensitive optic technology than cheaper models. This is generally the area that separates the high precision instruments from the economic models. Not all applications require this type of sensitivity and accuracy, making it important for buyers to choose a refractometer that can accomplish their intended task, instead of focusing on the model that has the most features.
Remotely operated under water vehicles (ROV) is basically an aquatic vehicle that is commonly linked to a ship that is used to perform various tasks underwater. ROV’s are highly maneuverable and unoccupied, allowing them to be programmed and controlled to do various tasks during rough weather conditions or under any condition where is unsafe for a person to perform these tasks. ROV’s are tethered to a ship where it is remotely controlled and monitored. This tethered system also makes it possible to install and run complex software into the machine, supplying constant power supply to ensure all of its functions are working properly.
The most common use of ROV’s is for scientific research. A number of new undersea plant and wildlife have been discovered using ROV’s in depths that is unsafe for humans to reach. ROV’s are also used as specimen gathering tools, often equipped with probes or cutters to obtain samples from the sea floor to bring to the surface. As such, this capability make ROV an ideal tool for deep sea archaeological expeditions. ROV’s can also be used in rescue missions for both the military and the coast guard.
A stud detector is a hand held device used to locate wood and metal framing studs commonly used in light-weight construction. There are two types of stud detectors. These are the magnetic stud detectors and the internal capacitor stud detector.
Magnetic stud detectors use magnets to detect the location of nails used in the studs. The user may sense the nails being attracted to the magnet over the wall, making it easier to find the studs. Issues may arise if the nails deep within the covering material.
An internal capacitor stud detectors use capacitors to detect changes within the dielectric charge within the walls. Simply put, most materials that have conductive properties retain small amounts of electrical charge over time. An internal capacitor stud identifies specific points in a wall that have emit this type of electric charge coming from the nails used in the studs. Most models would have multiple sensors that are sensitive to this small electrical charges, removing the need to move the instrument around over the walls.
Surveying is the profession and science of studying and plotting significant plot points on a stretch of land either to be plotted on a map or as part of a building requirement for construction and engineering works. This profession involves a host of surveying equipment to help plot and record significant plot points of the land that will be developed.
The most widely used surveying equipment include the theodolite and steel band, a total station, the level and rod and global positioning equipment (GPS). The theodolite is an instrument used to measure angles in the horizontal and vertical planes. A telescope mounted on trunnions is aligned vertically with the target object, while the upper section rotates for horizontal measurements. The telescope is used as the reference used to measure the angle it forms as it is tiled upwards. As for the horizontal plane, steel clamps are secured into place to act as reference points for horizontal plane measurements.
While theodolite has been a mainstay of land surveying, it is no longer as often as before, conceding to the more accurate total stations. Generally, theodolites are now limited in simpler construction projects.
The total station is a variation of the theolodite since it comes with distance measurement device that are often automated. These electronic devices can perform the needed measurements more accurately and in lesser time compared to when only using theodolites. The total station has virtually replaced the theodolite for professional land surveying since this type of instrument is more precise and require lesser manpower compared to theodolites.
The use of GPS makes plotting easier and more accurate, especially with the identification and recording of pertinent points and landmarks within the land being surveyed. Furthermore, the GPS can also be used to make a baseline measurement of the land being surveyed using triangulation to use the movement of the satellites to measure the distance and angles of the plot of land in the survey.
Tank level meters are meters specifically designed to monitor and record the water level of water tanks. These devices are generally installed on top of the water tank so that it can measure the level and temperature of water inside the tank. Generally, these measurements are sent in real time to a receiver installed in the user’s home or through a software program. These meters also have alarm features for both water level and temperature, alerting the user to any changes to these measurements.
A timer is basically a clock that is designed for the specific purpose of measuring different time intervals. There are two general kinds of timers based on their functions. Stop watches are the first type that begins their measurement from zero and then start counting up to a predetermined point to measure elapsed time. The second type is countdown timers that count down from a starting time interval.
Digital timers generally have combined features of a countdown timer and a stop watch. Most of these models have built-in alarms when the indicated time interval is reached. These models use computer software to accurately measure and record time set by the user. This makes digital timers very useful in many industries because it offers more versatility and value than older mechanical timers.
Thickness gauges are instruments used generally to measure the thickness of various materials such as glass, plastic, ceramics, metal, or any other coating over different construction materials such as paint. These devices work by using ultra-sonic waves to measure the thickness of a material without having access to both sides of the material being tested.
The basic principle of these devices is that it measures the amount of time it takes for sound waves to pass through the material and then the time it takes for the sound to be reflected back to the instrument’s transducer. The thickness is then calculated based on how fast the sound is reflected from the material to the transducer.
Underwater inspection equipment are primarily modified video cameras that are designed to work underwater. This type of instrument often has high precision cameras paired that can capture quality images even at low-light conditions like under water. For instruments designed to go deeper underwater, a light source is most likely included. Also included are unmanned, remotely operated, under water vehicles. Most models are also integrated with a video camera and light source. Most of these instruments also have magnifying features to better enhance the quality of the videos and photos taken by these instruments.
Quality underwater inspection tools have the capacity to remotely send pictures to a receiver. This feature makes it possible to capture and receive photos and videos in real time while the instrument is still submerged underwater.
Vibration meters are instruments that measure the displacement, velocity and acceleration of any vibrating body or construct. These instruments are almost, always portable so that they can easily be carried and placed easily on the machines were they will be used. Often, these instruments also have the capacity to measure RPM.
Common applications of vibration meters include monitoring and repair of motors, bearings and gear movement, monitoring if fans, pumps, compressors, factory conveyors, measuring shock experienced by various equipment and in comparative studies between different machinery models.
