The Department of Technology has a communication and instrumentation laboratory. This lab is set up to support class experiments and local industry. Some of the equipment used in the lab consist of the following: Fluke 199C(x2) 2.5 Giga-samples/sec color DSO, Avcom 0-6GHz spectrum analyzer, Ramsey RSG-1000B RF Generator 0-10GHz (variable modulation, 0.1 PPM time base), Fluke PM6304 RCL meter, Berkley Nucleonics arbitrary waveform generator (0.1 PPM ref.), Keithly 2701 (x2) data acquisition system (Ethernet/Webactive) 500 channel capacity, Fluke 744 documenting process calibrator, Fluke 700 series laboratory pressure sensor reference standards, RN Electronics comb generator 0-1GHz. Much of this equipment is portable and can be used off site to support program activities.
The Department also has a Dimension printing rapid prototyper capable of
taking 3D computer generated models and turning them into ABS plastic prototypes. The maximum model size is 8” by 8” by 12” with a resolution of 0.010 inches. Several CNC machines are also available to support product development. As an example the department
has an AXYZ automation CNC table with a working area of 4’ by 10’ by 10” with an overall accuracy of 0.008 inches.
