synatelembosbluFormed in 1970, SYNATEL designs and manufactures Britain’s widest range of industrial electronic sensing, counting and control equipment.
The company was founded on their novel use of infra-red LED’s in photoelectric switches, in place of the far less reliable filament bulbs. This enabled SYNATEL to develop even more innovative sensors that could detect through furnace windows, whilst ignoring the white hot billets.

Other sensors added to the SYNATEL range included timer modules, counters, capacitive and inductive proximity switches, speed detectors plus resistance and capacitance based level sensing equipment for use in both liquids & solids.

The SYNATEL product range now includes sensors plus associated equipment certified for use in areas at risk of explosion due to dust or gas. In order to maintain these approvals, the company is audited at regular intervals by the authorising notified bodies awarding the certificates. We are qualified and manufacture products for the following countries: –
CSA for North America and Canada, ATEX for Europe, IECEx for Australia and Singapore, INMETRO for Brazil and GOST-R for Russia.

Additionally, all SYNATEL products are designed to conform to regulatory requirements such as EU Directives where appropriate. We also continually review certification requirements for new and existing markets.

Today, customer requirements are demanding more ‘intelligent’ sensors which can communicate via wifi/cellular connection. SYNATEL has the expertise and capability to design and manufacture sensors to customer requirements. We can also offer high quality sub-contract electronic manufacturing and testing.
