Stirling winner proves electric

OMNITRONICS has won the Small Business of the Year and Business with Under 50 Employees categories at the recent Stirling Business Awards.

The Osborne Park-based company provides specialty electronic designs and manufacturing services across fields including telemetry, communications, remote vehicle control and industrial electronics.

Also winners of the 1996 WA Small Business of the Year and Manufacturer with Under 50 Employees Awards, Omnitronics’ electronic systems range from pure analogue to embedded microcontroller systems.

Established in WA in 1981, Omnitronics has offices in Queensland and Victoria. Omnitronics general manager Jon Goudge said the company had been successfully competing with eastern states companies in their own market.

“We developed a specialised form of telemetry for train door monitoring that displays the status of all doors to the driver,” Mr Goudge said. “It sets off an alarm when something is keeping the doors ajar.”

Several versions of the equipment have been taken up by Queensland Rail supplier AD Transit, who also supply trains for new suburban carriages to Westrail.
