Data Translation Firmenprofil

About the Company


At the end of 2015, the measurement technology specialist Data Translation Inc./Boston/USA was taken over by Measurement Computing (MCC), Norton/USA. Now the German branch of Data Translation has changed its name and since then operates under the name of Measurement Computing GmbH. In addition, a new internet presence was launched at, optimally representing the two well-known measurement technology brands and the product range.
Users now find two of the most important measurement technology brands, including the corresponding support,
under one roof.
