_of_categories/categories.cfm" title="used test equipment" onclick="linkClick(this.href)">used test equipment, is accommodating the increased demand for handheld devices and advances in technology. Over the last three years Used-Line has seen constant growth of handheld test devices among the 200,000+ equipment listings on its site. Listings on Used-Line, automatically pulled from websites of more than 250 trusted equipment dealers, show new and used equipment available from over 75 dealers worldwide. Handheld was recently added as an oscilloscope subcategory and more handheld subcategories are planned for the near future.
Nathaniel Sperka, customer support specialist at Used-Line, informally polled test equipment dealers to learn more about the handheld trend and how it is impacting the used equipment market.
One executive polled was Jimm Hoffmann, executive partner at Instrument Engineers Inc., a leading Southern California test equipment reseller and distributor.
“Bulky AC powered instruments are clumsy and cumbersome, and may not be adequately protected from the environment. As more applications move into the field, the testing instruments are following,” Hoffmann offered.
“One key area of growth for us has been in the process control and power management arenas where handheld oscilloscopes, power analyzers and recorders have been added to the test tools kits of more technicians. Key brands like Fluke, Extech, and Hioki lead the way in new product introductions. As a result, slightly older, previously-owned versions are available at good cost differentials over new introductions if the customer can live with the older unit’s performance.”
