Brief History:

Super Beast Digital Combo shown with bag & meter adapterProducts: Arnett’s first products the — Beast of Burden and the Pinpointer Underground Cable Fault Locator — paved the way for many more product innovations that are now in use worldwide. Today, over 45 years later, Arnett offers to utilities a full lineup of innovative, durable products that allow workers to operate efficiently and safely. We continue to work closely with utility companies and their employees to develop products that help make utility field work safer and easier, and enable utility companies to operate more efficiently.

Take the Mega Beast, an 80 amp service conductor tester which was originally requested by a utility in California to identify faults more quickly. Most recently, the Super Beast-P has allowed utilities to have a single operator troubleshoot faults and open neutrals, with the added benefit of single-user cable identification at a padmount transformer.

Services: Recognizing the need for rubber personal protective equipment to be checked and tested frequently, Herb Arnett started a dielectric test lab under the name “Arnett Testing Labs”, serving the electrical industry in the Pacific Northwest.

At Arnett Industries, we remain on the forefront of technology, researching and developing new products and services, ever guided by our mission to provide our customers with service, safety, and savings.
