Welcome to Vanguard Instruments Company, Inc. Vanguard Instruments Company, (VIC), founded in 1991, is located in Ontario, California, in a 28,000 square-foot facility which houses Administration, Design, Engineering, and Manufacturing operations. From its inception, VIC's vision was, and is to develop and manufacture innovative test equipment to test substation EHV circuit breaker and other electrical apparatus.
The first VIC product was a computerized circuit-breaker analyzer, which was a resounding success. It became the forerunner of an entire series of circuit-breaker test equipment. Since its beginning, VIC's product line has expanded to include microcomputer-based, precision micro-ohmmeters, single and three-phase transformer winding turns-ratio testers, winding-resistance meters, transformer tap-changing controllers, megaohm resistance meters, and a variety of other electrical utility maintenance support products.
VIC's performance-oriented products are well suited for the utility industry. They are rugged, reliable, accurate, user friendly, and most are computer controlled. Computer control, with innovative programming, provides many automated testing functions. VIC's instruments eliminate tedious and time-consuming operations, while providing fast, complex test-result calculations. Errors are reduced and the need to memorize long sequences of procedural steps is eliminated. Every VIC instrument is competitively priced and covered by a liberal warranty.
