Meter Math teaches students to read meters and determine system performance from readings. Student must determine if a system failure indication is simply result of a bad meter or if a functional block has actually malfunctioned. Each functional block is defined by a transfer function ranging from simple arithmetic to logarithmic and exponential functions. Digital troubleshooting of binary system is also included. Yellow Blocks perform a mathematical operation on analog input and generate an analog output. The mathematical operations performed by the yellow block are referred to as the transfer function.

Block Diagram Troubleshooting with Binary/Octal Indicators The block diagram below exhibits no faults. The block diagram represent a good baseline system. The digital meter used here display binary and octal numbers rather than standard decimal numbers. The source has a analog output, and the yellow blocks also have analog outputs just as they did in the previous problems. The difference here is that each switch position tests the same unit with different Source input values.
