I had a great conversation the other day with an Extech product tech specialist and by the end of the conversation he found the part I was looking for, then offered to send it my way for nothing! This was after he and one other employee searched the “vintage” parts warehouse! I was shocked and because the LCR Extech 380193 passive meters are older and the data acquisition cable is a serial RS 232-C cable, they didn’t even sell them (never sold them as a replacement part actually!). So he knew this was the only way I could get what I needed and be able to log my readings into Excel from the meter on my PC. He included a note, meant a lot to me. Sometimes the little things help us through the hard ones.
After this semester, I only have about 35 hours total left, with 14 hours of fundamental Electrical Engineering courses left.
Electrical Engineering student (Jr year) with a background in IT. Such as dealing with large scale network infrastructure upgrades at Lowe's HQ and former lead hardware tech for the NC Government. My specialty has shifted over to audio hardware and vintage hardware re-certifications along with treble bleeds.
