Experiment 1: Introduction to the Circuits and Electronics Lab A. Lab Safety The voltages used in the circuits you will build and test in the Circuits and Electronics Lab are not dangerous since they do not exceed +/- 15V. Nevertheless the equipment that supplies and measures these voltages operates at hazardous levels (110 and 220 Volts AC.) Therefore you are required at all times to follow the proper procedures of handling the equipment in the lab to ensure your well-being, the well-being of people around you. Always report any dangerous situation you encounter in the lab, eg. strange smell, spark, broken power wire, loose socket, etc. Report anything you are not sure about or that feels hazardous. Plugging instruments for use Always plug the power lead in the instrument on the bench first , and then in the socket. Never plug the power connector in the socket before the instrument: doing so may cause electrocution! Unplugging instruments after use After you are done using a device in the lab, you first start by detaching the power cable form the socket first and then form the instrument. Failing to do so is also hazardous. Note : As engineers you should always assess the situation around you and act appropriately to ensure the well-being of the people and environment around you. Always practice utmost safety when working in the lab and ask about anything you don't understand or you are not sure about. The lab instructor is always there to help you solve your problems and to show you the proper procedures to follow in the lab. A
