Polytron has a long and successful history of developing and manufacturing custom electronics and proprietary products.  Excellence in electronic design by an experienced engineering staff is our hallmark.  Polytron matches its capabilities to meet your needs in the following areas:

Polytron is proven at meeting the needs of many industries and is familiar with their respective standards and application demands.  The wide diversity of abilities varies from the complete assembly of a solid-state controlled commercial toaster for Hobart Corporation to a computer interface module manufactured for Caterpillar, Inc.

Polytron has experience in higher-level programming languages.  We have developed sophisticated controllers with remote monitoring communication capabilities utilizing Ethernet, CANbus, modems, RS232 and RS485.  We can handle the larger, complex projects that require 32 bit processing or we can design for larger volume, cost-sensitive applications that utilize 8 bit processing.

Polytron utilizes automated insertion machinery for high speed, reliable assembly.  Our equipment is both through-hole and surface-mount capable.

Our considerable experience with Underwriters Laboratories ensures that our designs will pass inspection when your equipment is submitted for approval.

Design & Engineering

Since 1973, Polytron Corporation has been developing custom designs and manufacturing electronic controls and timers for various industrial applications.  Working closely with the customer, Polytron designates a certified electronic engineer to every project.  Our objective is to maximize customer interaction and communication throughout the design process, ensuring complete satisfaction of the design and final product.

At Polytron, our team of electronic engineers will act as an extension of your own, providing design, prototyping, testing, and manufacturing implementation. They will meet your needs, from simple to complex, with custom solutions. Polytron has the skills and tools needed for circuit design, component selection, PCB layout, software programming, testing, and diagnostics.

While there are many suppliers of off-the-shelf timers and controls, we find that we can design and manufacture a custom control, dedicated to the specific operation you need, eliminating unneeded functions and their associated costs.


Our automated and manual assembly technologies and techniques allow us to handle manufacturing solutions for Original Equipment Manufacturers ranging from small to medium and large production runs.

Polytron has experience in:

  • C Programming
  • Remote monitoring communication
  • Ethernet, CANbus, modem, RS232, RS485
  • Microprocessor based controls from 8-bit up to 32-bit and associated hardware
  • Solid state power and logic level switching
  • Three phase and single phase voltage, current, and phase monitors
  • Power switching with phase control
  • Speed of fractional HP DC motors
  • Single and three phase soft starts
  • A to D and D to A conversion
  • Level switching
  • Alarm circuitry
  • Function specific contollers

Testing occurs at several stages of manufacture, including 100% electrical testing of finished product.
Polytron also provides environmental testing as well as test fixture design and assembly.
