The simple answer to this question is yes.

You will see that Lutron is a Taiwanese brand that we consistently feature across all our product ranges and there is a very good reason for this.

Why are Lutron Products So Affordable?

It's no fluke that Lutron's test and measurement instruments are much more affordable than other well-known brands for a couple of reasons.

First, most Lutron test and measurement devices will only have the functions that you need.

For example, we had a customer who was using a $10,000 device for carrying out voltage and current calibrations on industrial equipment. The device he was using was highly specified and had a whole host of functions built in that the customer never used.

The customer was always afraid of dropping this device and breaking it. So, he thought he would try the Lutron CC-421 calibrator and hasn’t looked back since.

He loves it! It cost him less than $200 and can do all the calibration tasks he needs. What’s more, because it only has the functions he needs he is not spending so much time scrolling through multiple menus to select the required function. He now just flicks a switch on the device and starts.

Of course, if he does accidentally damage the unit he knows a replacement is not going to make to make a dent in his budget. He can now relax when he is out on site, knowing he is not likely to write off a $10,000 device at any moment.

Secondly, Lutron has invested heavily in the latest automated production methods and select the latest electronic components available. This keeps the number of components in the instrument to a minimum and keeps production costs low, yet you still enjoy a high level of accuracy and relaibility. The savings are passed on to you as the consumer.

Of course, the only real test is trying it for yourself.
