Data Acquisition and Control Systems
Hytec Electronics Ltd has been developing and
producing instrumentation and systems to customer order for over 30
years. Applications extend from industrial and scientific data loggers;
through plant simulators; to graphics–driven, real–time database
control systems. Incorporated in 1976, the company was formed by Richard
Tatham initially to provide a service for government laboratories such
as Culham, Harwell and NPL and to the Particle Physics market. Building
on this experience the company rapidly expanded into the Public Utility
Hytec has gained an international reputation with
equipment installed world-wide. The client base includes a wide
selection of organisations in industry, research and commerce (UKAEA,
AWE, SERC, National Grid, Power Gen, National Power, Diamond Light
Source, Paul Scherrer Institut, British Energy Generation, First Hydro,
RGO and major universities).
Open Architectures and Standards
Hytec designs and manufactures to international
standards and provides the hardware and software building bricks for
creating advanced data acquisition and control systems. The first
products developed were CAMAC modules originally specified by the
European Nuclear Committee ESONE. Adopted by the IEEE, this standard
achieved world–wide acceptance and Hytec’s reputation enabled it to
become an innovator and a major manufacturer in this market. Since that
time Hytec has dramatically increased its product range which now
includes VME, PCI Express, Canbus, PCI, VXI, BitBus, ISA and VME64x and
Industry Pack plug-in cards.
The modular theme continues in Vsystem, the tool-box
of advanced software components for creating real-time distributed
systems with world-leading performance and which now supports more
platforms than any other Process Control Software. All platforms
supported intercommunicate seamlessly and transparently to the user.
Applications running on one system have equal access to any real-time
database mapped anywhere on their network.
We also sell HP computers and manufacture blade
industrial control computers.
Hytec have a resellers representatives agreement that allows Hytec to
market and sell Vsystem products and Vista to market and sell Hytec
products in the US and Canada.
