Triplett Test Equipment and Tools - a brand name of Jewell Instruments LLC
For over a century, U.S.-based Triplett Test Equipment continues to be on the leading edge of specialized testers. Whether supplying vital test equipment to the U.S. Signal Corps during WWII, or providing the railroad industry with essential testers to ensure the safety of their crews and the public, Triplett prides itself in developing innovative, reliable, and durable test equipment for every technician–that also won’t break the bank. Triplett Corporation was founded in 1904 in Bluffton, Ohio by Ray L. Triplett. Triplett’s first innovative product was the “Hot Wire” meter, an electrical test meter housed in a watch case. Innovation continued… the READRITE Model 201 tube tester in the 1920’s, the 1200 series Radio Tuning Tester in the 1930’s, and meters for the U.S. Signal Corps during World War II. In 1955 Triplett launched the renowned Model 310 hand-held analog volt/ohm meter, which is still manufactured and highly sought-after today.
Acquired by Jewell Instruments in 2007, Triplett relocated to Jewell’s manufacturing facility in Manchester, New Hampshire. Triplett continues to innovate, and we are known today for our full line of products in six major categories – Electrical Test & Measurement, Voice Data & Video Test, Security Camera Test, Vision and Inspection, Specialty Tools and Toolkits. In addition Triplett customizes test equipment for large end-customers in Security, DataComm, MRO, Mining, Rail and other markets.
In 2014 and 2016, Jewell Instruments acquired both Byte Brothers and GEM Electronics, respectively. Thus adding quality and efficiency to Triplett’s product line thanks to Byte Brother’s real world cable test devices and GEM’s problem solving electronic consumables.
Our goal is to carry on the legacy of innovation by staying connected to the customer experience. We aspire to be the brand of test equipment preferred by technicians.
