Since 1936 Associated Research has been providing test and measurement solutions for the electrical safety compliance industry. Our commitment to quality, innovation, and customer service has helped shape the industry.
Throughout the years, we have been on the leading edge with product innovation and design. This began early on in our history with the introduction of the Vibrotest, the first battery operated Megohmmeter in the United States. Shortly thereafter, we developed the AC Hypot, our very first Hipot Tester. Hipot testing soon became the strength of our company as we continued to innovate and shape the marketplace.
