Basic Electronic Instruments
1) Power supply and multimeter
Power supply Model:
HM 8040 and Digital Volt Meter Model: HM 8011
This video shows the
basic functions of a power supply. It shows how the readouts can measure
both current and voltage, and explains why that is useful, as well as showing
that regardless of the current being drawn the voltage is constant.
Then the digital
volt meters functions are explained with special focus on the continuity and
current measurement functions.
Function Generator model: HM8030 and Digital Oscilloscope model : DSO1012A
The first video introduces the function generator with some
basic digital oscilloscope functions. The focus is to show the student
how the sweep, offset, and amplitude functions work along with displaying them
on the digital oscilloscope.
The second video then goes over the advanced scope features,
like alternative triggering, zooming and how measurement and mathematical
functions can be displayed on the screen.
Spectrum Analyzer Model: SA 512
This video gives a general overview of what a spectrum
analyzer is and how it is useful for detecting the power spectral density of a
signal. Simple functions such as the variable spanning range, and the peak
hold are outlined in this video
