Retrofitting and Modernizing Legacy Testing Equipment

In many labs, it’s not uncommon to find testing equipment that’s been in service for decades. But at a certain point, technology outpaces compatibility with new software and accessories and future serviceability becomes something to consider. In this webinar, you’ll learn how legacy testing equipment like this can be retrofitted to take advantage of the latest software, functionality, and accessories to modernize and expand your lab’s capabilities. We discuss what it means to retrofit a testing system and what’s involved. We also look at the risks and challenges associated with operating out-of-date equipment and how modernization allows you to mitigate these risks.
