Technology in focus: Test & Measurement

The Conrad Sourcing Platform supplies the entire range of testing and diagnostics equipment teachers, researchers, companies and tradespeople are looking for.

Technology in focus: Test & Measurement

Handheld meters and workbench-based instruments: Conrad’s range of equipment comprises electronic, metric and environmental testers as well as power supply units.

  • Smart meters boosting user safety during professional training and at the workplace
  • Versatile testers and software aimed at the lab – industrial-grade testers, precision scales, thermal imagers and everything in between
  • Handheld and bench equipment: Conrad’s product range caters to all the needs of testing specialists across industry and trade

In a wide range of scenarios, the availability of testing and diagnostics equipment is key – among them vocational training, R&D, and the MRO sector. This is why, in the last quarter of this year, Conrad have decided to put various testing equipment deals offered by top brands and manufacturers, such as Voltcraft, Fluke, Rhode & Schwarz, Flir and Testo, centre-stage.

The Conrad Sourcing Platform already supplies a comprehensive range of products suited to a wide variety of measuring and testing tasks. It includes entire product lines of leading brands as well as the latest product innovations, however, without compromising on quality. Conrad’s selection comprises both handheld and workbench-based equipment, offering a large choice of electronic, metric and environmental testers, and power supply units.

“We promise customers a simple, fast, and comprehensive sourcing process,” stresses Michael Schlagenhaufer, Senior Director of Product & Supplier Management at Conrad Electronic. “We are proud to offer both a wide and deep product range, and tailored product-related services. Besides in-house calibration, we are also working with external partners. This enables us to look after more than 30 types of equipment regardless of the make, covering over 100 units of measurements whilst fully complying with DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 and IEC 17025:2018 (DAkkS) standards. To us, simple also means providing customers with all-in solutions that go beyond the product, and giving expert advice whenever they need it. Moreover, there is the Conrad Connect IoT platform which is an easy and straightforward way to make products and apps a part of IoT-operated setups.”

Oscilloscopes and Microscopes for Teaching & Training
Using testing equipment is an important aspect of vocational training and science degrees. Safety takes top priority. Which is why Conrad supply smart testing equipment able to detect user errors, also featuring double-insulated leads and high CAT ratings. Products include oscilloscopes that display and store voltage changes over time, and allow analysing user-defined time intervals in detail. A large selection of software provides a comprehensive set of tools, such as auto-triggers, bus analysis, a variety of mathematical functions and competent support at the press of a button when it comes to how to use the product. Another essential piece of equipment are microscopes which are by no means limited to research, medicine and biology. Apart from being a staple of classrooms, they are used in industrial quality assurance, to detect shorts on PCBs, and faults caused by dud pins. The microscopes come with a USB port that connects them to a PC. This enables sharing images, displaying them on a room projector screen, and using them in online lessons and webinars.

Testing Equipment for All Industry Sectors
Conrad supply industrial-grade testing equipment especially developed for use in labs across all fields of science, namely electrical engineering, electronics, biomedical research, physics, chemistry, manufacturing, product development, material sciences and food control. In addition, the Conrad Sourcing Platform stocks precision scales with sensitivities of less than 1 mg, aimed at the pharma industry, drug dispensaries, hospitals and jewellery stores. Electronics designers can choose from a variety of software that allows simulating products ahead of prototyping and preproduction runs. Last but not least, thermal imagers help identify hot spots, faulty SMDs and components with the wrong specifications on PCBs quickly and accurately. A large selection of component testers for checking inductors, capacitors, diodes and resistors further boosts the comprehensiveness of Conrad’s product range.

Testers Designed for Workshops and Tradespeople
Moreover, the Conrad Sourcing Platform caters for builders, contractors and service engineers, supplying test equipment covering electrical installation, machinery and plant MRO and domestic wiring. The products are designed for use in both facility management workshops and in tasks that need to be carried out elsewhere on the premises. The supplied range of equipment comprises thermal imagers, and instruments measuring and processing quantities such as temperature, pressure, SPL, relative humidity, light intensity, air speed, pollutant concentrations, EMFs and radiation levels. This also includes testers determining the composition of soil types, gases and liquids, as well as meters detecting amperage, voltage, signal strength, frequency, impedance and hardness grades. Additionally, the Sourcing Platform stocks equipment that helps customers carry out service engineering tasks involving the set-up and MRO of power plants and HVAC systems.

When it comes to building surveying, Conrad’s range of products comprises clamp meters, VDE-approved phase testers, metric testers, thermal imagers and many other measurement tools. Looking at checking out building wiring including mains outlets and junction boxes, Conrad supply multimeters with different CAT ratings which include industrial CAT IV testers suited for the high-voltage consumer units of residential properties. A large choice of very accurate flow, gas, damp and air-quality meters ensures compliance with all applicable building law.
