About Us
Summit Technology Inc.

Summit Technology is the industry leader in true three-phase hand-sized power analysis.

Based in beautiful Walnut Creek, California, Summit Technology was incorporated in 1992 when it introduced the first of its PowerSight family of power analyzers.  From the beginning, PowerSight products have been guided by these principles:

- Portability.  All models weigh less than 2 pounds (<1kg) and fit comfortably in one hand.  They are powered off of rechargeable batteries and can last for many hours.

- Ease of Use.  A sign of advanced technology is an instrument that is easy to use.  Our manuals are small and easy to read. The instruments and our PSM software are both intuitive to you meaning that a training class is not required to put the instruments to use.

- Forgiving.  We make our equipment and accessories in ways that make it difficult to make mistakes.  From automatic identification of current probes to a commitment to having no disposable batteries, we keep your mind on what you are trying to accomplish instead of on our equipment.

- Support.  Our deluxe warranty is the best in the industry.  Trained technical personnel are available via telephone and email for rapid response.  Instruments returned for repair or upgrade are generally turned around in 2 days. 

- For all your needs.  Our meters have the industry's widest array of accessories and modes of operation.  Whether your need is to measure down to 5ma or up to 6,000amps, 1V to a direct connection to 15,000V we have the accessory for you.  DC, 400Hz, spectrum analysis to 100kHz, water-proof mounting... all are available and more are to come.

- Compatibility.  With few exceptions, all accessories and software can can be used with all members of the PowerSight family.  You can mix and match our meters and accessories on your jobs and grow your capabilities over time.  Customers who maintain their deluxe warranties a given free upgrades of software and firmware to allow there meters to remain compatible with our latest models.

PowerSight meters are in use in all continents (including Antarctica) and have been supplied in seven languages.  They are the world leader in compact true three-phase energy analysis.

The model PS3000 was introduced in 1992 and has been continually upgraded in software and hardware since then.  Although it looks the same, it has gone through six generations of improvement over that time.  It is dramatically more capable than the original version and is a proven stable product relied on by professionals throughout the world.

The model PS250 was introduced in 2002.  It is optimized for power logging.  It has a simplified user interface and an exciting entry price.  It introduced several new features such as the SureStartLogging feature that uses artificial intelligence to determine if the settings and connections are correct when it is turned on.

The model PS4000 was introduced in 2003.  It is a high end power quality analyzer that retains the small size of the other PowerSight models.  It extends the capabilities of the PS3000 in analysis of harmonics, swells, dips, high speed transients, frequency spectrum, and on-line motor performance.  Its capabilities compare favorably with any instrument at any price.

There is always more to be done.  We here at Summit Technology are committed to delivering the features, accessories, and software you want to do the job you do.  If there is a feature or accessory that you would like to see added or modified, please let us know.
