Supplying instrumentation for temperature, thermal & environmental measurement
We are a family run business operating on traditional values such as honesty & integrity, based in Sandy Bedfordshire.

Our customers are valued and respected and receive the same level of customer support whether they are large plc or an SME.

We have been providing instrumentation and sensors for temperature, thermal,and meteorological measurements since starting the business in 1991 under the former name of Otter Instruments, but in 2000 for legal reasons, we started trading under the present name of BARBER InSys.

We work closely with system integrators, supplying intelligent meteorological sensors for Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS) where critical measurement of road surface conditions are required to communicate with local authority winter maintenance teams, or pollution monitoring systems where accurate input of weather data is required, such as wind velocity & direction.

We try to find the best technical solution that either meets or exceeds our customers expectation and within our clients initial budget calculations.

In representing a selection of (mostly European) world class manufacturers in their field of measurement expertise, most on an exclusive basis, means we have extensive technical resources at our disposal.

As an SME ourselves, we have the flexibility to respond to the majority of enquiries within the same day.

We were previously ISO9001 accredited and continue to operate under the same in house quality system.
