Sample text

If a gauge or meter must be read, the dial should be as simple as possible and not capable of being read to a greater accuracy than the test requires. In more sophisticated types of special test equipment it may be desirable to incorporate some form of quick check to show that the equipment is functioning normally. Accessories, such as leads, should be permanently attached, and there must be stowage space for all loose ancillary items so that it can be seen at a glance which, if any, are missing.

It is quite difficult to give an accurate estimate but it is often necessary to predict an approximate MTBF in the early stages of equipment design. e. failures in 105 hours) in this book; however, failure rates may also be given as failures in 106, 108, 109 or 1012 hours. Derating to improve reliability Manufacturers' ratings are usually based upon safe working loads for a reasonable performance. A bridge may be rated to carry 30 tonnes, but could probably carry 60 tonnes. A mechanical hoist may be rated at 10 tonnes, but could be used for more than this.
