OPTO 22 was founded in 1974 by engineers who designed a better solid-state relay and chose to build it in a non-corporate, flat organization. Now, 40 years later, we’re still privately held, lean, and run by engineers.
Our flat organization fosters individual responsibility, quick response to customers’ needs, and fast development of cutting-edge products.
OPTO 22 products are designed to run on non-proprietary communication standards like Ethernet and the Internet Protocol (IP).
Open standards and commercially available technologies decrease the cost of automation and open up data for use where it’s needed.
Emphasis on Quality
OPTO 22 I/O, controllers, and SSRs are famous for their quality and reliability. Customers often comment about their dusty, 20-year-old “OPTOS” still doing the job in the back of a factory somewhere. With this kind of reliability, we can afford to guarantee SSRs and most I/O modules for life.
Made and Supported in the U.S.A.
Since all our products are manufactured and individually tested at our headquarters in Temecula, California, we control quality from the ground up. So we also give you FREE pre-sales engineering help, free hands-on training, and free product support from experienced engineers.
