Some customers like Weather Services or Institutes do operate their test equipment since more than 25 years, which underlines the outstanding quality and even more the durability of our products.

Complementary to our two main business areas, we develop the required software for the data evaluation and the automated operation of the calibration chambers, as well. Furthermore we offer installation, training and technical support for our equipment worldwide.

We always guarantee a professional high level development and manufacturing of our products. For this purpose we operate our own calibration laboratory to enable us additionally to test instruments and sensors within our quality assurance regulations and as a service for our customers.
