Founded in 1951 as a commercial agency for industrial installations, Dr Herbert Iann soon expanded his enterprise by producing and developing measurement equipment for locating leaks in drinking water distribution networks.
At the end of the 1960s, devices for line location were added to the product portfolio, in the 1970s, fault location equipment for power cables. In the 1980s, fault location devices for telecommunications cables followed.
1971 saw the delivery of the first fully-equipped van for testing power cables. 1996 marked the 1000th van and only four years later the 1500th (from Baunach).
After the death of the company founder, Dr Herbert Iann, in 1995 his son and daughter, Max (Dr) and Adriane, took over the management of the company. That same year, Seba Dynatronic took over its main competitor, Hagenuk KMT Kabelmesstechnik GmbH, with its production site in Radeburg near Dresden. The joint sales organisation, SebaKMT, commenced business operations in 2000.
