Test and mea­sure­ment (T&M) equip­ment is one of the less talked about and the least at­trac­tive seg­ment of the power in­dus­try. How­ever, its sig­nif­i­cance can­not be dis­counted given its role in lo­cat­ing de­fects in var­i­ous elec­tronic and me­chan­i­cal prod­ucts. T&M de­vices are used for test­ing and mea­sur­ing var­i­ous elec­tronic and me­chan­i­cal prod­ucts dur­ing the life­cy­cle for en­sur­ing that the prod­uct per­forms to the op­ti­mim level. These de­vices have a prom­i­nent role to play in the var­i­ous stages - ini­tial de­sign, de­vel­op­ment, ver­i­fi­ca­tion, main­te­nance and re­pair.

Key elec­tronic de­vices that are such as cell­phones, dig­i­tal cam­eras, MP3 play­ers as well as so­lar in­vert­ers are tested us­ing T&M equip­ment. T&M equip­ment mar­ket in In­dia can be seg­mented into three prod­uct seg­ments:

- Gen­eral pur­pose test equip­ment

- Wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­tions test equip­ment

- Fiber op­tic test equip­ment

Go­ing by New York based news agency, PR Newswire, the T&M equip­ment mar­ket in In­dia is set to grow at a CAGR of 13.24% over the pe­riod 2015-2019. One key trend in the mar­ket is the need for com­pat­i­bil­ity of test equip­ment. This is go­ing to be the main fo­cus of T&M equip­ment ven­dors when de­vel­op­ing new prod­ucts. With the grow­ing em­pha­sis on qual­ity of prod­ucts and ser­vices, and the need for ac­cu­racy and timely re­sults, the mar­ket is also ex­pected to see an in­crease in the R&D in­vest­ment. Tek­tronix, Fluke Net­works, Agi­lent Tech­nolo­gies, Syn­ergy Mea­sure­ment Tech­nolo­gies Pvt. Ltd., and Na­tional In­stru­ments are some of the ma­jor promis­ing play­ers in In­dia.

Re­search & Train­ing

The In­dian In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy (IIT) Patna has re­cently signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing (MoU) with elec­tron­ics test and mea­sur­ing equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pany, Tek­tronix. The MoU is aimed at en­hanced co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two par­ties in the field of emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies. Under the MoU, Tek­tronix will share the lat­est trends in tech­nol­ogy with IIT Patna and those trends will be used by the fac­ulty of IIT Patna to re­vise their sub­jects, cur­ricu­lum and re­search ac­tiv­i­ties. Stu­dents and the fac­ulty will be able to ac­cess the prod­ucts of Tek­tronix that will be used to pro­vide hands-on-train­ing to stu­dents and fac­ulty on the use equip­ment like power elec­tron­ics, em­bed­ded sys­tems, RF mea­sure­ments, semi­con­duc­tor char­ac­ter­i­sa­tion.
