Personality Type

  • Conventional / Realistic

Knowledge

  • Instrument performance elements

    Elements that indicate or influence instrument performance. A first indication of the performance of the instrument is the accuracy or precision of the instrument, such as its response time, resolution, and range. A second indication of performance is the technical performance of the instrument, such as its power level, the electromagnetic interference, and transient voltages. A third indication of performance are environmental factors that can influence instrument performance, such as humidity, operating temperatures, or dust.

  • Battery components

    The physical components, such as wiring, electronics and voltaic cells that can be found in batteries. The components vary according to size and type of battery.

  • Battery chemistry

    The different battery types according to the representative chemical components used in the anode or the cathode such as zinc-carbon, nickel-metal hydride, lead-acid, or lithium-ion.

  • Electrical discharge

    Tthe qualities and applications of electrical discharge, including voltage and electrodes.

  • Quality assurance procedures

    The procedures to inspect a product or system to ensure that it is according to specifications and requirements.

  • Battery fluids

    The characteristics and properties of battery fluids.

  • Electrical testing methods

    Test procedures performed on electrical equipment and machinery in order to check the performance and quality of the electrical equipment and their adherence to specifications. During these tests electrical properties, such as voltage, current, resistance, capacitance, and inductance, are measured using electrical measuring equipment, such as multimeters, oscilloscopes, and voltmeters.

  • Battery testers

    Electronic devices that test the state of batteries. Battery testers can test the charge present in battery cells, test the battery's capacity for accumulating charge and detect flaws that may influence the battery's performance, depending on the type of battery tester.

  • Electrical equipment regulations

    The national and international regulations with regards to the use and manufacture of electrical equipment on the workfloor. These regulations provide rules and guidelines on topics such as general risk management, electrical equipment manufacture, electrical equipment testing, electrical equipment installation, warning labels, and certificates.

Skills

  • Analyse test data

    Interpret and analyse data collected during testing in order to formulate conclusions, new insights or solutions.

  • Monitor manufacturing quality standards

    Monitor quality standards in manufacturing and finishing process.

  • Operate battery test equipment

    Operate equipment used for battery testing, such as a soldering iron, a battery tester, or a multimeter. Detect flaws affecting the battery's performance, test the battery's capacity for accumulating charge, or test its voltage output.

  • Meet deadlines

    Ensure operative processes are finished at a previously agreed-upon time.

  • Measure electrical characteristics

    Measure voltage, current, resistance or other electrical characteristics by using electrical measuring equipment such as multimeters, voltmeters, and ammeters.

  • Read assembly drawings

    Read and interpret drawings listing all the parts and subassemblies of a certain product. The drawing identifies the different components and materials and provides instructions on how to assemble a product.
