Process Control and Automation

In 1991 the sole Australian agency for Shinko Technos Instruments was gained as part of a strategic plan to diversify into the Temperature Controls market. Shinko design and manufacture Process Controllers, Indicators, Chart Recorders and Sensors specialising in temperature measurement and control. More recently Fastron has been appointed distributor for Crouzet Automation who manufacture a wide range of easy to use Mini PLC's, HMI's, Timers, and Protection Relays suited to a wider range of automation applications including access control, lighting control, solar tracking to name a few.

In 2020 Fastron Electronics plan to launch their own range of PID Temperature Controllers. After lack of innovation from Shinko and a drop in the quality of the Shinko product since the retirement of CEO Hideo Kitigawa, the decision was made to develop our own range in partnership with a reputable overseas controller manufacturer. This strategy offers more flexibility with regards to our sales territory, and allows us to give our customers more certainty we can supply well into the future. Most importantly this change ensures Fastron and their distributors maintain competitive in the Process Control market.

These products are complimented by Crydom's Solid State Relay I/O modules, LEM's range of Process Current Voltage Transducers and Alish's Process Indicators/Monitors. 

Fastron also continue to develop its second generation OZtherm Thyristor (SCR) Controllers and Signal Conditioners which have been well accepted for their reliability and ruggedness. 

More than 6000 OZtherm power Controllers are or have been in operation world wide. Fastron has the ability to supply the complete temperature control package to your requirements. This can include the Thermocouples/RTD's, the Temperature Controller or PLC, and the SCR/Controllers or Solid State Relays as piece parts, or incorporated into a fully integrated control cubicle.
