Lesson 3/Learning Event 1
CIRCUIT CONDITIONING TEST SETS
Identify the type of the test equipment, describe the
function of the front panel controls and characteristics of
the test and equalizer equipment.
Given information about the type, use, characteristics and
function of the front panel controls for the test and
equalizer equipment used in circuit conditioning.
Demonstrate competency of the task skills and knowledge by
responding to the multiple-choice practice exercise; select
the ONE answer that BEST completes the statement or answers
the question, covering circuit conditioning test sets.

Learning Event 1: TYPES OF TEST INSTRUMENTS.
Within the DCS technical schedules, the large number of parameters
that have to be satisfied for successful circuit conditioning requires a
large variety of generalized and specialized test equipment items. Further,
some test items are limited to use by circuit conditioners, while others are
used by both circuit conditioners and technical controllers.
listed instruments use dynamic testing principles; they perform their
functions by measuring or indicating signal characteristics.
a. General test equipment.
Generalized test equipment items include
several commonly used sets that are found in most technical control
