About Us

Founded by two engineers with an interest in electronics and railroading (model and the real thing), Iowa Scaled Engineering designs and manufactures a variety of “useful widgets”, focusing on both the makers and tinkerers of the world as well as model railroaders.  Most designs follow the Open Hardware model in the hopes of encouraging additional designs and as a means to educate other hobbyists.

With a combined 30+ years of professional hardware, software and embedded design experience and a lifetime of curiosity, Iowa Scaled Engineering’s staff is here to help.  If you have an idea for a product you don’t see here, please contact us.  We’re always looking for new ideas.
