@measurementBlues: No doubt about that. With the sensor technology chugging out information as visible data in smartphone, this has come way beyond the concepts of spreadsheets and time complexities involved in delivering such spreadsheets to the governing party for their advice. Since Fluke allows multiple tagging of smart phones, this can be very useful when getting advice from two people in two different parts of the world.

@DrQuine

That day came this week.

National Instruments enters manual lab bench instrument market

it may be tablets that replace instrument screens and control panels

My understanding is that external connections are not an issue - the instruments serve as peripherals to the telephone (as is also being done with some medical equipment).

@DrQuine: But for how long? Employees and Engineers would be able to know what they need to do based on the data reads on their phones, but what happens when the connection is down?

The Fluke Connect is actually implementing the Industrial Internet model. GE recently brought its major factories and assembly lines under sensor and cloud data. If you have sensors and a cloud connection, then getting the data from any plant to your smartphone won't be too tough, and for that an app won't be required.

Seems like the big value will be in capturing many data sources. Hopefully Fluke is working on making small sensors that can be used in large numbers. I want Fluke quality, but for big data measurements...

@MeasurementBlues Good point: it may be tablets that replace instrument screens and control panels.

The problem is the phone screen is so small. Tablets were needed where you actually need to see some detail. Today's oscilloscopes have large screens so you can see waveform details. Or, it could be that large screens are needed because so many engineers are too old to see small screens.

Just look at the scopes in the ads on these pages. If you don;t see a scope, refresh your browser. The ads rotate. I'm looking at one right now.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
