Our engineers have years of test equipment experience to provide you with the best advice and we keep a comprehensive library to ensure we have the data we need to back it up.

Our systems are uniquely setup to operate a test equipment business so we can manage our deals as efficiently and effectively as possible, without mistakes. At each step of the process, checks are made and signed off. All our processes are comprehensively documented to ensure consistent quality in all aspects of our business.

Our Lab features a comprehensive set of test equipment, calibrated to national standards and able to generate and measure to 26.5GHz. Every single product we supply is electrically tested and mechanically & cosmetically refurbished. Each product is checked for EMC, Y2K and safety conformance and undergoes a final quality check by the Sales Engineer you deal with to ensure you get the quality both you and he expect. We issue a Certificate of Conformance with every product we supply which is your assurance that the equipment operates to manufacturers specification.
