We strive to design, make, and deliver effective components, solutions, and services to our clients in the diverse fields of energy automation. Our primary focus is to develop solutions for smart grids, transmission and distribution grids, industrial and commercial energy management, building automation, and all other kinds of power generation projects. Our key competencies include power factor correction instrumentation, energy monitoring and management, and power quality evaluation tools. Our products are developed, designed, and manufactured in the EU with a primary focus on quality, reliability, and robustness. We are enhancing its added value through cooperation with smart thinkers from academia as well as from praxis to deliver simple, smart, useful, and targeted information. And by the way, the data you get with our instruments are your data, so we spend a significant amount of time considering all possible ways to open access to it with standard formats and tools.
We like to listen, think, and address your challenges.
The company is certificated by the quality assurance system according to the CSN EN 9001:2001 standard.
The history of the company began in 1991 when the association of founders with experience in industrial automation and electronics was founded. The first project for SCE Decin led our interests towards long-distance monitoring of energy consumption.
In 1992 we transformed into a small business (ltd.). Portable measuring instrument Simon for low-, high- and very-high voltage distribution networks is firstly introduced. We already used the SMD technology in this product already.
Our portfolio extended gradually with multi-functional panel meters, HDO monitoring instruments, and many other universal devices. In 1999 the company developed and presented a new award-winning and innovative instrument - NOVAR power factor controller.
Since 2002 the company has progressively expanded to foreign markets in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Headcount and production capacities have grown. Nowadays we focus on R&D in emerging technologies for measuring and controlling the quality of electrical energy.
Recently we have innovated and complemented the PFC product lines to follow requirements of different markets. An important part of our product portfolio includes components for power factor correction - controllers, thyristor switches, and related software. In cooperation with Technical University in Liberec, we also assure research capabilities and innovative approach to our customers. The cooperation brings a unique product line for MV transformers - the AFR and LV solution for soft starting TrafoSTART. In 2009 we have introduced a new line of power quality analyzers for three-phase voltage networks SMP/SMPQ.
In 2012 and 2013, we've introduced new highly accurate meters and analyzers for DIN rail mounting - the SMC 144 and PA 144, followed by compact panel instrument SMY 133 with color LCD screen. On a similar basis in 2013 arises a new three-phase NOVAR 26 and then also our high-end class A power quality analyzer and class 0.2S meter ARTIQ 144.
In the years 2015-2017, we've successfully solved a research project in a field of DC measurement, supported by grant TH01020327 - Modular system for complex monitoring and management designed for DC and hybrid AC / DC smart grids. With its contribution in these years, we also focused our research and development towards an increase in modularity and flexibility in our future products.
Lately, we are expanding our portfolio of high-level meters, analyzers, and control units with new communication options and we open our systems and data to the standard solutions, which are commonly used worldwide. In the modular system, now connected with a local bus, we have introduced several new modules for even more compact and cost-effective feeder measurement, flexible IO control module, and several data acquisition and remote communication solutions.
