Our MTL products range from industry renowned (IS) barriers and isolators through to sophisticated process control products, all designed for the harsh environments often encountered in the process industry. The former, long established brand has built up an enviable reputation as a global provider of Intrinsic Safety interfaces, fieldbus components and systems for use process control applications. Key applications also, industrial network components, HMI and visualisation, surge protection, alarm management and gas analysis.

History: Measurement Technology Ltd was conceived in April 1971 as a result of a cutback in the new-product design and development activities of a large instrument company. Many qualified staff with wide experience in different disciplines were suddenly available, and seven members of the team decided to start their own operation. One of which was Chris Towle who still resides now, within Eaton today.
