Powell Tronics is a household name in the security distribution business and has offices in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and Port Elizabeth. The company is home to a number of well-known brands from the local Impro Technologies and ET Systems, to Morpho biometric readers and most recently Golmar, manufacturer of IP-based intercoms.
The company held an open day at its Johannesburg office in April, where partners, customers and end users were able to speak to Powell Tronics employees and see and interact with a range of products on display. Starting off with the local displays, Powell Tronics had its range of door locking and closing products on display, among others, while local manufacturer Impro also had its latest access technologies on display.
Impro is proving that multiple access methods in a single device is a popular option and is selling its products within and outside of South Africa’s borders. One device the company had on display, the BMTA (Biometric Multi-Discipline Time and Attendance terminal), offers a selection of card, PIN and biometric authentication on the same device as well as an LCD screen to convey short messages to the users. As with most manufacturers, Impro is also focused on integration, specifically of its products with other hardware and software.
The Morpho product range is also a good performer for Powell Tronics, according to MD John Powell, who says the business has been performing well since Morpho appointed additional resellers.
The latest brand in the Powell Tronics stable is Golmar. Powell was on hand to demonstrate a range of IP intercom options that connect directly to a corporate network without the need for a gateway. The systems on offer from Powell Tronics can manage small installations up to large estates with up to 9000 users (or apartments).
Golmar intercoms can be integrated to existing access control systems and, depending on the product selected, can transmit voice, video or both, and can also allow users to record the access events for future reference.
While Powell Tronics is better known for the brands it distributes, Powell says a large part of its business is assisting installers in larger projects and developing the software required for integrating its products to third-party systems. The company has a dedicated development team experienced in developing reliable applications for customers. The company also offers training on its product range to its customers and can also offer resellers training on specific applications they will need to know when operating on a particular project.
