Advanced Instrumentation, Calibration, and Process Training Systems for Education & Industry

Since 1992, with a purchase of the instrumentation training aid manufacturing division of General Physics Corporation, Design Assistance Corporation has been improving upon and adding to a proven family of instrumentation and control-related training aids, designed for the industrial market.


Our line continues to expand today, incorporating new technologies such as Emerson DeltaV DCS systems. Industrial communication technologies such as FOUNDATION Fieldbus, Profibus, and DeviceNet, often incorporating state-of-the-art diagnostic technologies such as Hart protocol.

Our Range Is Modular and Tiered

Concentrate on core skills such as bench calibration or basic field measurement, and expand into PID control and more specialized areas pertaining to your industry and your unique program.


All of our instrumentation and control training products incorporate an “open architecture” allowing the use of instruments and controls of many designs, from a variety of manufacturers. Using this modular approach, instruments and controls can change as technology changes. Primary devices mount on standard 19" rack panels, allowing interchangeability between products and applications. User-specified and user-provided devices can also be easily integrated.
