Jewell Instruments, LLC (Manchester, NH), supplier of the Triplett Test Equipment product line, announced that it has acquired the assets of Byte Brothers Inc. (Newcastle, WA). Included in the purchase are several patents and trademarks for the Byte Brothers products and technology for an advanced line of test equipment for cable and devices.
Jewell says the acquisition will position both Triplett and Byte Brothers products groups to provide a more complete line of test equipment and tools. The continued development of the Byte Brothers cable testing technology will also allow both Triplett and Byte Brothers products to expand into new markets and territories, adds the company.
Along with the Triplett and Byte Brothers-brand test equipment and tools, Jewell Instruments is a specialist in the manufacture and distribution of sensors and controls, as well as meters and avionics instruments. Byte Brothers is a designer and manufacturer of hand-held cable test and certification equipment for the computer, datacomm, audio/video and security marketplaces.
Although Byte Brothers is best known as the maker of innovative tools such as the Web-upgradeable Low Voltage Pro and the Real World Certifier, which tests the speed parameters of a cable plus stores 250 test reports, the company has brought similar creativity to its Power Panel instrument for VoIP and IP camera installers; its ProTone Wire Locator with illuminated tip; its TVR entry-level LAN tester; its Camera Wizard CCTV tester with Vpp display; and other powerful, yet affordable, testers.
"The Byte Brothers brand is known for having a creative approach to testing, with tools that do more and cost less," commented a representative for Jewell Instruments.
