Otek Hi-Q Products to be Discontinued

In this high-tech world that we all inhabit, new technologies emerge while older technologies fade away.Otek Hi-Q119 meter Sometimes the old tech just doesn't measure up anymore. Sometimes, however, the old tech is a great product that keeps going and going, but the parts that were used to build the old tech are becoming harder and harder to find and purchase.

Appendix B Program Update

In April 2016, Otek completed and signed-off on a Nuclear Quality Assurance Manual under guidelines consistent with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s 10CFR50 Appendix B. This new QA Manual will provide the framework to allow Otek to build parts for Class 1E nuclear-safety related applications, also known in the nuclear industry as “basic components”, and sell them direct to nuclear power plants in the United States and other US designed plants e.g. Mexico, South Korea, Brazil, and Taiwan .

Meet the Otek Nuclear Products Rep Team

As part of our efforts to provide Manufacturer-Direct sales to the United States Nuclear Power Plant fleet, Otek has partnered with the following Manufacturer's Representative organizations to provide direct, on-stie representation to each location in the fleet. Here is some information about each of our Rep organizations:

Join Otek Corporation in New Orleans, April 18-20, 2016

Otek Corporation will be exhibiting at The 2016 Electric Power Conference and Exhibition at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA from April 18-20, 2016.

GREEN DESIGN FOR A BETTER LED DIGITAL BAR METER

We challenge our minds daily to come up with innovative ways to improve everything in our lives. New developments and advancements in technology are open invitations to create.  We used to have a variety of resources and technology at our fingertips, but now we have limited resources and have found some technologies to be harmful.

OTEK PATENT AWARDED FOR NTM TECHNOLOGY

After two years of hard work by our engineering department, the patent for our NTM technology was awared on June 9, 2015.  Our New Technology Meter (NTM Series) is a successor to the original analog voltmeter designed by Sir Edward Weston in 1893!  Just like its predecessor, the NTM uses minute amounts of energy in a current loop to brightly and consistently illuminate its 51 automatic tricolor (R/G/Y) bargraph and 4 digits.

ANALOG METERS FOR A.C. SIGNAL POWER GET FIERCE COMPETITION

If you have the signal, you can measure it and control it!  Since 1893 we have been using analog meters to measure AC & DC signals (thanks to Sir E. Weston) without external power.  However, analog meters are delicate electro-mechanical instruments susceptible to many physical variables and unable to communicate with today’s digital world.  They do not clearly and accurately convey (HMI) data to the operator or DCS/SCADA systems.

1/8 DIN BAR-DIGITAL METER GOES GREEN @ 50mW POWER

NO PANEL CUT-OUT NOR POWER IS REQUIRED BY THIS LOOP POWERED BAR-METER

Using nanotechnology ASIC and high efficiency LEDs, the new NTM-F bar-meter by OTEK rivals analog meters by requiring under 50mW of signal power versus ~20mW of analog meters.  In exchange, you get an auto-tricolor (R/G/Y), 51 segment bar, four (4) full digits (0.01% resolution), isolated Serial I/O (USB or RS485), alarm (4) set points and the industry’s first loop failure detect (open or short).  So, there is no need to finger tap the meter any longer, the new

OTEK will be closed...
