Nice rack.

How many instruments can you identify in this stack?
Interesting how many meters they have. Must be cheaper and easier to use off the shelf meters than to roll their own custom measurement boards.

She's definitely fully loaded!
I'd rather a Google clue, link, or some theory than "do this" (generally)

I like their rack. Looks like it is made from Bosch Rexroth aluminium profile.

You've got a pretty impressive rack of processing power at your work Dubbie and in its own aircon room.  :o

Isn't he hiding from the photographer,  he's just spent the last hour checking the cabling,  switching everything on,  in order and getting the settings correct!
Whoah! Watch where that landed we might need it later.

On top of rack - 3 x Agilent ARBs 336xx series
Second shelve - 3 x old Agilent ARBs 33210/33250A perhaps
Two Keithley 2400 series SMU
Fluke 8.5 digit 8508A with yellow LCDs
Another Agilent ARB
Bottom shelf two other Agilent ARB 336xx series.
Oh, there is another Keithley stuffed on top shelf right corner..

That's it, don't know other stuff w/o google :)

So far there is only meter, 8508A, but that's hell of a meter. MSRP >24k  ^-^. Good luck designing "cheaper" measurement board to replace that one..

I'd have a huge grin on my face too, if I got to play with all those toys!  ;D

Argh, you're right of course Tin. I mistook the arbs for meters. What are the two old looking spectrum analysers (?) on top?

Those are probably two Stanford Research SR785s dynamic signal analyzers.

Look at how many arb they have! Also they have been able to store a bunch of anti-protons for more than 1 year? It's incredible!

Probably collected a bunch of equipment from all around to stage an 'interesting' picture.
