is a well-know name amongst electronics technicians and engineers who
have been in the business for any length of time. Triplett meter movements
(aka panel meters) were considered to be top-of-the-line product in
the days before digital meters and displays. They were used in industrial
instrumentation, in military equipment, and in amateur radio gear. Triplett
is still in business today but it appears they no longer sell just meter
movements, although there is a large supply (new and used) available
on eBay and Ham radio websites and swap meets. This advertisement for
Triplett Thin-Line Instruments appeared in the September 1942 edition
of Radio Retailing Today magazine.
