Entertron Celebrates 25 years of providing PLC solutions to OEMs
Gasport, NY - January 21, 2003 -- Entertron Industries Inc., the innovation leader in programmable logic controller solutions celebrates 25 years of business.
Founded in 1978, Entertron offered one of the first embedded / board level programmable logic controllers. The PLC marketplace at the time was focused mainly on large rack style PLCs. Entertron was one of the first to offer a small PLC (now known today as micro PLCs)
Entertron's first benchmark product was the SK1600. A solid state controller that was manufactured with either AC or DC I/O. Two of the features that made this controller truly revolutionary were the 2 amp triac / transistor rating and the indivdually fused outputs.
When the personal computer became part of the automation environment, Entertron was one of the first manufacturers to offer PC based ladder logic programming software. Not only was it PC based, but it was also Free of charge.
Since the company's founding, Entertron has continually introduced new and innovative PLC solutions and programs.
In addition to providing a group of off the shelf ePLCs that are second to none, Entertron has also provided many custom solutions. Entertron's ability to modify existing off the shelf controllers to meet specific requirements that other PLCs are unable to accomplish has also set us apart from the larger PLC manufacturers.
In the near future, Entertron will be displaying application information on its web site, emphasizing our flexibility and capabilities of our products. Stay tuned.
We would like to extend our thanks to our customers, employees and vendors that have had a hand in making Entertron an innovation leader in the world of PLCs.
