About Solidstate Controls

Providing Continuity of Electrical Power

AMETEK Solidstate Controls was established in 1962 with the purpose of providing continuity of power to businesses. This is accomplished with Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems, inverters, industrial batteries, power conditioners and much more. While our products have advanced with the movement of times, our focus has not. We have installed more than 50,000 systems around the world.

Reliable Energy Products

Industrial process and power generating businesses are subject to severe consequences when power problems occur. Human safety, the environment and lost revenue are at stake. Our 20+ years MTBF (mean time between failure) – based on actual field experience with routine maintenance – is the highest available rating in the industry. This technology allows you to reliably keep operations running at a very low cost for the 40-year expected life of the equipment.

Modern, Efficient Facilities

Columbus, Ohio Solidstate Controls operates from its main office and primary manufacturing facility in Columbus, Ohio. The facility is situated on 13 acres with a 56,000 ft2 (6,000 m2) building. Operations required to design, manufacture and service the power systems are performed by more than 200 people located in this facility.
