Quality is on everyone’s mind when shopping for new things. Assessing quality is easy for some products and harder for others. Mushy avocados are a ‘no go’. Leather seats are better than fabric. Tangible goods are easy. Services are hard. How do I know if my car is getting a good tune-up at my local mechanic? Or if I run a lab, how do I know if my… (Show more)

Sometimes we need to be smarter about how we make technology decisions.   When I needed equipment for a new project in my factory, I was always amazed at the quantities of paper and people involved in decisions about capital spending. Adding insult to injury, most of the people who needed to sign off on the request had no technical or operational… (Show more)

Anyone who’s played with LEGO bricks appreciates the value of a well-written procedure. It’s the difference between a beautifully constructed Millennium Falcon and a multi-colored hunk of plastic with random pieces sticking out. In calibration, the goal of the procedure is to verify the accuracy of your test equipment. The parameters, measurement… (Show more)

These days, making a significant asset purchase is no easy decision. In many ways it’s much like purchasing a car.   With a car, the first step is deciding that it’s time to move on and upgrade to a vehicle that meets your current needs. Next is narrowing the choices down to the vehicle that best fits your most important criteria. Check out… (Show more)

I’ve always been a fan of analog or non-electrical devices, especially when it comes to mechanical calibrations. However, after years of using a proving ring as a primary standard, I’ve finally converted to the dark side – digital. Let me introduce you to the load cell and explain how the former unit under test (UUT) has become our force standard.… (Show more)

Let’s face it: sometimes “good enough” is just fine. Sure, having the latest and greatest technology always sounds like a great idea. But sometimes you can satisfy your measurement needs with the equipment you already have. And even if you really want a new unit, you may not have the budget for it.   Think about it in your personal life. Would a… (Show more)

Certain professions seem to rely on a barricade of impenetrable jargon as a form of job security. Accountants, statisticians and baristas may come to mind. If you’re an engineer, you may also be picturing your friendly neighborhood metrologist.   That would be me. A while back, I changed roles within Keysight, moving from engineering to… (Show more)

“Talk Nerdy To Me.”   That’s what the T-shirt I sent Keysight Store on eBay customer, Steve, said. In this pic, he’s proudly wearing it while working in what his wife calls the ManLab. But why did Steve receive a special surprise? Read on.     I’ve managed the Keysight Store on eBay for about five years now. Before that, Keysight didn’t take… (Show more)

You know you have a problem. You can’t help it. Maybe it comes from complacency or forgetfulness. But the evidence is always there: it’s building up, gathering dust, getting stacked and shelved, and constantly growing. This malady has a name: it’s called test equipment hoarding, and it isn’t pretty.   Deep down, you just can’t let go of old… (Show more)

According to popular myth, 16th Century explorer Ponce de Leon and his band of followers spent years searching the Caribbean for the legendary Fountain of Youth. His search ended in 1521 when, after being on the wrong end of a poisoned arrow, Ponce died in Havana at the ripe old age of 47.   Craving a happier outcome, many of our customers come… (Show more)
