Ectron has decades of experience specializing in ruggedized, reliable metrology instrumentation designed to provide highly accurate data, even in harsh environmental conditions. Today, Ectron is also leading the field in Industrial IoT (IIoT) by providing First Mile Solutions to the Cloud using Edge Computing with AI/ML capability including solutions covering the entire manufacturing value chain from first sensor touchpoints to the Cloud.
Ectron Corporation has a rich history of producing high-precision, ruggedized embedded computing systems to the Industrial, Defense, Pharmaceutical, Process Controls and other industries. From the most-accurate thermocouple simulator-calibrator on the market – to Edge, Gateway, HMI computers with AI/ML capabilities – to complex PCB layout, design and manufacturing services – to end-to-end Smart Factory IoT solutions (SmartEYE™ its PaaS), Ectron has been an industry leader in technology for more than 5 decades.
Quality and customer welfare are uppermost in the efforts of all Ectron employees. Product specifications are stated as the maximum deviation from the ideal rather than only typical performance. For quality assurance all test equipment is referenced to in-house standards that are traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology. All our products go through rigorous environmental, electrical, and other acceptance and quality tests ensuring high performance and reliability. For example, Ectron’s line of conditioner products including its 400 Series conditioner amplifiers find application wherever accurate data is required under environmentally harsh operating conditions. These products work in environments that have operating conditions of high temperatures and between 100g to 2500g vibration requirements.
In fact, Ectron’s products have been used for decades in government test facilities, as well as in the field by various segments of the military including on Cruise Missiles, rocket launches and even aboard the Space Shuttle; on test tracks in the auto industry and in numerous other commercial, industrial, aerospace and military settings.
With its range of embedded products and AI/ML capable edge computers, Ectron continues this tradition with IP67 rated enclosures, HALT and HASS testing including ATEX and IECEX certification for some of its products.
Ectron products are used across various market verticals in innumerable applications including:
- Research Laboratories
- Food Processing
- Process Control
