Test & Measurement

Distrelec supply an extended range of products and accessories ideal for cable joining and splicing. Junction boxes and terminals are also stocked to ensure you have a range of options for joining cables.

Cable joiners

Joiners are essential when working with wires and cables in awkward environments. Distrelec’s stock comes in a range of sizes and capacities to fit your needs.

Splices

The process of splicing is to separate a cable so that two end terminals can be connected to their respective cable conductors. Splicing cassettes sold by Distrelec are the housing for the beginning or the end of cable transmission paths.

Junction boxes

When two or more cables are carrying an electrical current, a junction box is an ideal place for protecting the junction and also to be easily found when maintenance needs to take place.

How do test and measuring devices work

Mechanical measuring products work using a series of physical changes to the measuring device and then taking a reading from these changes. This includes a micrometer physically extending in size to show the length of an area. Electrical testing devices have electronic sensors that register mediums such as sound, light and objects and produce a signal or displayed result. Electronic sensors are very efficient in providing results quickly.

Things to consider?

Measuring ranges and type are two of the biggest factors to take into account when deciding which measuring instruments you need. In terms of type you have a choice between handheld devices or stand-alone devices. With handheld devices, you are free to take measurements in various locations without the need to fix the device to a specific spot. Stand-alone devices are less mobile, meaning they that will need to be fixed to specific spots or tables in work rooms and laboratories.

Ensure that you have all the accessories that you require for your measurement instrument. This includes any data loggers that will evaluate or transmit data which are usually needed in conjunction with handheld measurement devices.

Measuring instruments are available in various types for different applications, ranging from basic multimeters that measure electric current, voltage and resistance over several value ranges, to multifunction testing tools that offer a host of testing options. There are several specialised tools for specific purposes. Dataloggers record data specific to a location, over time, using instruments or sensors linked to digital processors. Electrical testing instruments, such as voltage and continuity checkers, electrical testers, continuity testers, cable locators and cable length measuring instruments, allow performing various checks to ascertain the proper functioning of electrical devices or to maintain the integrity of the system. A function generator produces electrical waveforms such as sine, square, sawtooth and triangular, in a wide range of frequencies, to test the functioning of equipment. Oscilloscopes analyse waveforms of electronic signals and display them as a function of time. A frequency counter measures the frequency in terms of oscillations or pulses per second. LCR meters measure the inductance, capacitance and resistance of a sensor or electronic component, to ensure its proper functioning. Logic analysers trigger, capture and display multiple signals from a digital circuit, and make explicit the timing relationships between signals in the system. Telecom and LAN measuring instruments, such as fiber optic testers and cable testers, detect errors in communication networks.
