Gsertel was born with a key objective: designing and manufacturing professional measuring equipment that would surpass existing technologies in order to provide the end user with simple solutions that were not covered until now.
Gsertel began its journey in 2001 as part of the Televes Corporation, whom for more than 50 years has been the undisputed world leader in the radio and television signal reception and distribution market, with more than 1500 products developed and manufactured in its facilities.
The time came when Televes Corporation decided to go the extra mile in a field that naturally requires specific engineering in order to develop products composed of high technology components.
This is how Gsertel was born, with the key objective of designing and manufacturing professional measuring equipment that would surpass existing technologies in order to provide the end user with simple solutions that were not covered until now.
The first engineering equipment designed from scratch by the company is a new field meter, which was launched in 2003 and that revolutionized the industry by providing a powerful and accurate spectrum analyser, such features unavailable so far for laptops.
From there on forward, Gsertel continues to develop new improvements and products to offer the most intuitive, solid and scalable analysers of the market. To achieve these goals and become a reference in the sector, we quickly started to use the "digital signal processing", coupled with the introduction of innovative concepts such as the "combo" mode, which allows to view spectrum, measurements and TV images on the device’s display.
The high engineering capability of the company, which allows to introduce leading technology features, design and construction quality based on user requirements as well as the realization of the entire manufacturing process within the premises of the Televes Corporation, is the reason why 10,000 users in over 30 countries rely on the equipment developed by Gsertel to perform their tasks.
As a further step in the steady path of innovation, the portfolio was expanded in 2014, introducing a range of monitoring equipment and RCS series for the continuous monitoring of the distribution networks signal.
