History of ElMetro company starts in the mid 90th when a development team based on laboratory of the Instrument-Making Faculty of the South-Ural State University was founded. Well-formed specialized engineering department has developed over 20 types of industrial measuring instruments under contracts with leading Russian instrument-making enterprises. Since then total production output has reached 2 million pieces of products.
There were first domestic intellectual pressure and temperature gauges with HART interface (view design concept of automatic process control system with HART protocol), first domestic automatic pressure controllers/calibrators, first Russian portable pressure calibrators and paperless videographic recorders for technological processes which have become the most popular among rival products in the markets of CIG countries (view Pic. 2).
Production of these instruments and assemblies was partially located at production facilities built as a part of our enterprise, which lead to speed up of the company's developments commercialization.
Strengthening the economic base enabled to start R&D works to form our own product portfolio, and in 2008 ElMetro brand was created to promote new developments in the market. ELectronics and METROlogy – company name reflects our main work streams of that development stage.
During 9 years of ElMetro company independent activity on the market, our product portfolio have extended from 2 to 16 types. Some of the instruments have become sales volume or sales growth rate leaders, in particular paperless videographic recorders ElMetro-ViER-104K, ElMetro-ViER-M7, ElMetro-ViER-M5.7, multiparameter Coriolis flowmeters ElMetro-Flomac, pressure calibrators ElMetro-Pascal and integrated metrological (including training) stands and laboratories.
Nowadays ElMetro company has more than 160 employees. Many of them are graduates of the Instrument-Making Faculty of the South-Ural State University. Development team includes Candidates of Sciences, university professors, doctoral students and young specialists. Our enterprise provides students with an opportunity to undertake a work experience externship, in particular creative ideas in combination with experience and scientific approach enable us to develop advanced electronic equipment with unique features.
