One of the things I love about my job is the chance to get into the field. When I was just pocket-sized, our group motto was “Be prepared . . . for (almost) anything.”

I always carry these things in my toolbox:

  • Voltmeter
  • Screwdrivers
      - Flat-blade (pn 1113)
      - Phillips-head (pn 6290)
      - Small flat-blade  (pn 8125)
  • Wire cutter/stripper
  • Crescent wrench
  • Pliers
  • Pad and pen
  • Campbell support phone number
  • Laptop, fully charged, with software
    and drivers installed

For some sites I also carry:

  • CR1000KD
  • Formatted CompactFlash cards
  • SC115 CS I/O-to-USB drive
  • SC12 two-peripheral connector cable
  • SC32B optically isolated RS-232 interface
