Safety is of utmost importance for anyone working in a critical environment, like a nuclear power plant or oil refinery.

Digital Barmeter Goes Green

OTEK Corporation has been pursuing knowledge and implementing practices to go green in the office for many years. A more environmentally friendly and ecologically responsible approach to decision making benefits everyone. In our industry, you are bound to come across some things that are not as gentle to the earth as they could be. Some technologies that were once cutting-edge have been discovered to be quite harmful.

New Digital Meter Replaces Old Analog Meters

The analog panel meter has been the indicator of choice for many years. The analog meters ground breaking technology, invented by Sir R. Weston in 1843, allowed a meter to be signal powered. Although it was groundbreaking at the time, this same technology presents opportunities for accidents.


Otek Corporation has introduced its HI-QTEK series of P.I.C. with specific applications in nuclear (10CFR50), Mil-Spec (NVG3) and industrial.



Otek Corporation is offering its model HI-QTBS programmable intelligent controller with an explosion proof housing approved for Class I, II, and III, CENELEC, EEx and NEMA 4, 7 and 9 application requirements in the petrochemical, military, mining, pharmaceutical, semiconductor and biomedical industries.  The new “EP” case can withstand stea

Smart Serial I/O Bargraph/Digital Meter

Otek’s HI-QSLIM series bargraphs feature V/mADC and/or RS232C/485 input.  Measuring only 0.95"W x 6”H x 1.8” D, three different models are available with either 51 or 101 segments and a 2-digit display, or a 7-segment, (8) 0.6” digits display with limited alpha characters and 0-9 numerals plus decimal points.

Serial Input Remote Display (RS232/485/USB)

Designed to meet DOD specifications, the new model HI-QREM panel meter accepts RS232/485 as well as USB V2, which can also be used to power the meter with a maximum of 200mA @ 5VDC. This (5) digit 0.6” LED unit accepts and displays 0-9 numerals as well as modified alpha characters for messages such as “TEST”, “LIMIT”, “RANGE”, etc.

High Speed/Performance - Cost effective - Counter/Timer and Multi-Range Panel Meter

The HI-QCPM and HI-QDPM is a cost effective solution to a wide range of monitoring and control applications.

Universal Meter: Needs No Panel Cut-Out

Otek Corporation has released its new FPM series of the universal panel meters that only need a 3/8” hole to mount, reducing the installation time to less than 2 minutes.  The FPM is available with 4 ½  LCD or Led digits (19999)

A.C. (V, A, W, Hz) Signal Powered 4-20mA Transmitter

Otek Corporation has released its new DRT-AC series of AC signal powered (Powerless™) process transmitters (4-20mA), 100% powered by the signal they received from AC mains or P.T.
