In The GenRad Tradition

GenRad Banner

IET is proud to continue to manufacture and support the metrology related products of General Radio. These include the Standards and Decades products (Resistance, Capacitance, Inductance), Digibridges, Megohmmeters, Audio products, and Strobotac lines.

These products continue to be sought by labs and engineers and are made to the same exacting standards as by GenRad.
