Term Definition
Refers to the mass of water in a particular volume of air. Absolute humidity is expressed as the number of kilograms of water vapor per cubic meter of air. 
A device for measuring airflow or the pressure of moving air. The term is derived from the Greek word "anemos" meaning wind. 
The luminous intensity, in a given direction, of a source that emits monochromatic radiation with wavelengths weighted to the standardized model of sensitivity of the human eye. 
A chemical compound composed of one carbon and two oxygen atoms. It is often referred to by its chemical formula CO2 (the "2" is subscript). 
A toxic, colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas. It consists of one carbon atom covalently bonded to one oxygen atom and has the chemical formula CO. 
Candela 
Formerly Centigrade - A thermometric scale in which the freezing point of water is 0°C and its boiling point 100°C at normal sea level atmospheric pressure (14.7 psi). °C = (°F-32)/1.8. 
Carbon Monoxide 
Carbon Dioxide 
An electronic instrument that records data over time. 
A mathematical unit of measure, generally included as a feature in a multimeter for expressing DC and AC voltage, that minimizes the scope for a large range of measurements. It is often used to define the gain or signal-to-noise ratio. The formula to convert voltage to dB is: dB = 20 log (Vin / Vref) where Vin is the DC or AC voltage input and Vref is a reference voltage level. 
A measure of the ratio between two quantities, and is used in a wide variety of measurements in acoustics, physics and electronics. The decibel is widely used in measurements of the loudness of sound. 
The temperature at which a given parcel of air must be cooled at a constant barometric pressure for water vapor to condense into water. 
Distance to spot 
Usually written e, is the ratio of energy radiated to energy absorbed by a black body at the same temperature. It is a measure of a material's ability to absorb and radiate energy. A true black body would have an e = 1 while any real object would have e < 1. This emissivity depends on factors such as temperature, emission angle, and wavelength. However, a typical engineering assumption is to assume that a surface's spectral emissivity does not depend on wavelength, so that the emissivity is a constant. This is known as the grey body assumption. When dealing with non-black surfaces, the deviations from ideal black body behavior are determined by both the geometrical structure and the chemical composition. 
A thermometric scale in which 32°F denotes freezing and 212°F the boiling point of water under normal sea level atmospheric pressure of 14.7 psi. °F = (1.8°xC) + 32. 
Footcandle 
Can also be called as luminance per square foot is a standard unit of luminance. It is "the illuminance cast on a surface by a one-candela source one foot away". 1fc is approximately equal to 10.764lux 
The energy that an object has because of its temperature. Heat is different from temperature (q.v.) because an object with twice as much mass requires twice as much heat to increase its temperature by the same amount. 
Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning 
The quality or composition of interior air that could affect health and/or comfort of a building's contents or occupants. 
Form of electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength between 0.7 and 100 micrometers (um). 
Infrared radiation 
Lumen 
The lux symbol is lx and is a standard unit of luminance. It is used in photometry as a measure of the perceived intensity of light. 1lx is approximately equal to 0.0929fc. 
lux 
Occupational Safety and Health Administration is an agency of the United States Department of Labor. Its mission is to prevent work-related injuries, illnesses, and deaths by issuing and enforcing rules (called standards) for workplace safety and health.

Electrical & Battery Testers - Product Categories

Abbreviation for lithium ion, is one of the most popular type of rechargeable batteries used today to provide longer lasting power than Ni-MH batteries for portable electronics such as cellular phones and laptop computers. It represents how much constant current can be provided in an hour before the battery becomes insufficient in providing power. 10Ah capacity means the battery can provide a 10A current continuously for an hour.

Component Testers - Product Categories

It can be simplified as two BJT transistors, one PNP and one NPN, connected between the base and collector regions of the PNP to the emitter and base junction of the NPN transistor respectively. Stands for equivalent series resistance, which is a measurement primarily used to define the performance of an electrolytic capacitor.

DC Electronic Loads - Product Categories

Some applications may require high voltage/low current and low voltage/high current, which a single load may not be able to handle. When selecting a DC load, it is important to consider not only voltage and current requirements, but also power ratings. The power used when testing must fall within the hashed region for the appropriate DC load.

Model 4005DDS - 5 MHz DDS Function Generator

The B&K Precision model 4005DDS is a versatile 5 MHz DDS (direct digital synthesis) function generator with a 4-digit display. The instrument generates sinusoidal, triangular, and square waveforms over the 1 Hz to 5 MHz range at precise frequencies. A continuously variable DC offset allows the output to be injected directly into circuits at the correct bias level.

Multimeters - Product Categories - B&K Precision

Special tools called Kelvin clips or probes are commonly used for this measurement to avoid contacts between the wires that may introduce stray resistance to the measuring circuit. The International Electrotechnical Commission has defined voltage category ratings that indicate an instrument's ability to withstand voltage spikes.
