Test and measurement know-how and high-quality components are indispensable to reliably get accurate results when using modern test and measurement equipment. Many users take for granted that transducers, amplifiers and measurement software need to meet high quality requirements. However, high demands are also made on the measuring cables connecting transducer and amplifier. Since the measuring chain can only be as strong as its weakest link, we recommend that you opt for high-quality components.
Measuring physical quantities is pivotal to many applications. Reliably and precisely measuring the relevant quantity is important in both development, where test and measurement equipment is used, for example, in test benches, and in production lines, where test and measurement equipment is used as a key component in quality assurance. The right transducer matching the measured quantity has to be used to convert the physical quantity into a measurement signal. A suitable cable transmits the signal to an amplifier which makes the measured value available for downstream analysis software or higher-level control architecture. Small signals and electromagnetic interference in the environment are the major challenges such measuring cables have to cope with.
