Our Company

Since 2009 we have seen a continuing reduction in demand for existing products as well as new ones. The loss of two very major customers who decided to make our products in house offshore was the nail in the coffin.

As most of you will know our product range has been dominated by ATEX / IECEx opto couplers that regrettably at this stage have no second sources. Having been proud of our dedication to giving customers the very best of service and quality we had to think long and hard about our decision to cease manufacture. There is a sensible limit to adjusting the prices to enable us to manufacture profitably accompanied by the possibility of reduced volumes that would defeat the purpose.

Our last shipments fulfilling all the last time buy orders received will go out by the end of January 2016. I am available for consultancy work on solving opto electronic problems.
