Measureall Workbench Test Instrument

This was a Student Project of mine, it is a very basic instruments that could do most of the tasks on a test bench.

Measureall - Test & Measuring Instrument

The cabinet used, was available as a part of a Hi-Fi DIY System, The Range and Mode switches were Modular Stackable Interlocked MultiPole Switches. The rest of the Interface were wirewound pots, jacks, sockets and plugs. The front panel was Engraved Acrylic, the panel was the toughest issue we tackled.

MeasureAll Benchtop Instrument

I wanted it to look well engineered, at least on the outside. It was a total analog instrument except for the digital indication of ICL7107. Thanks to 'Intersil Hot Ideas' Applications Book.
The above belong to an instrument Measureall shown below.

Regulated Power Supply 30V 5A

This is a Regulated 0-30 V DC Power Supply manufactured by me in small numbers, 0-30V 5A and 5V -5A. It had a Switching Preregulator. This keeps the Vce across Transistor Bank at the Back of Instrument, at the lowest possible level, in order to keep them Cool. When Vce and Ic both are more in a Power transistor it will get heated more, then the efficiency of power supply is low.

Variable Regulated Power Supply

The Output had both Constant Current Control and Constant Voltage Control. The CC control is also a Short circuit protection. The Output was protected from outside voltages damaging output circuits even when equipment is switched off. The back panel is a finned anodized black aluminum heat sink with many transistors.

Temperature Calibrator Milli Volt Source

This is a Milli-Volt and Milli-Amp Source for Calibration of Temperature Measurement and Control Instruments using Thermocouples. There is also a Passive Variable Resistance Source for Simulating a PT-100 RTD Sensor.

Temperature Calibrator

This calibrator was a simple solution i built. This instrument itself was calibrated by Instruments like the Calibrators from Omega which are the best you can get.
