B&D Technologies Adds IMO Automation as a New Vendor

This partnership expands BD Technologies’ solar product offering and provides customers with access to a leading global innovator.

Macon, GA – B&D Technologies has partnered with IMO Automation to bring solar and automation controls to its product line offering. IMO Automation is at the forefront of control component technology specifically developed for the renewable energy market. Its cutting-edge and skillfully designed products, coupled with an industry-leading five-year manufacturer’s warranty, provide customers with enhanced efficiency and reliability.

Founded in 1972 and based out of the United Kingdom, IMO Automation is a distinguished global manufacturer of industrial controls and electrical components with a leading-edge on its innovative solar products. Its solar products are used in applications that include space heating and cooling through solar architecture, day lighting, solar heated water, solar cooking and high temperature process heat for industrial purposes.

IMO Automation’s range of solar isolators are specifically developed for demanding DC disconnection applications and feature an operator independent trigger-ratchet switching mechanism which results in important rapid switching times of less than 5 millisecond (ms). Rapid switching times are critical with a solar isolator as slower switching times create a greater arc and increase opportunities for significant contact and equipment wear. Another leading solar product, the SolarCube Intelligent Controller, combines reliable PLC technology, GPS compasses, vivid display interface and the most advanced communications options into a an easy to program, economical unit.

“Our customers rely on B&D Technologies to provide products and solutions that are at the tip of the innovative spear. IMO Automation’s products, coupled with our in-house expertise from the Applications Engineering Group, provide customers with the sound, technology-driven products to ensure their day-to-day operations run smoothly. Our partnership with IMO Automation and their robust product line provides our customers that valuable piece of mind,” said Benjamin Nations, vice president of B&D Industrial.

"IMO Automation is excited to expand our presence in the US by partnering with B&D Technologies, a leading automation supplier with a long track record of customer success,” said Dennis Fairfield, U.S. manager with IMO Automation. “B&D Technologies offers customers quality service and application expertise, which is an essential component for IMO Automation to achieve its goal of exceeding customer expectations."
