Weighing the Benefits of Benchtop vs. USB Based Test Equipment

VISTA, Calif. - Nov. 2, 2022 - PRLog -- Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog that explains the differences between benchtop and USB based test equipment to identify the best option for a user's project. The most glaring difference between USB-controlled units and standard benchtop units is usually size. A USB unit fits next to a laptop computer on a small desk while a benchtop unit occupies the better part of a laboratory work area or 6U or more of a standard 19-in.-wide test equipment rack.

Another difference between a USB unit and a traditional benchtop unit is the computer. For USB equipment, the computer is part of the test setup, whereas for a benchtop unit, it is an option. For USB test equipment, the choice of personal computer (PC) can contribute to the effectiveness of the measurements since it must have the speed and compatible microprocessor and operating system (OS) to run the test software for the USB units. There is no doubt that USB test equipment is finding their places on test benches, in the field, and even in home laboratories.

There is no doubt that USB test equipment is finding their places on test benches, in the field, and even in home laboratories. They offer accuracy and ease of use but rely on a PC for measurements. Older, larger benchtop versions of essential test units will not be going away anytime soon, since they do provide levels of accuracy, control, and flexibility simply not possible with USB test equipment.
