Passion and energy are what drives us

Our company was founded over 30 years ago in a small town in Austria where we set out to develop compact test sets for testing protection and measurement devices in utilities.

From a small group of dedicated engineers we have grown into an international company with 24 offices worldwide and customers in over 150 countries.

Although our product range and the possible areas of application have increased, some elements have remained constant:

Our working life revolves around energy – through energy, dedication and the creative minds of our team we are able to provide you with products, solutions and services that allow your electrical power system to run smoothly, safely and efficiently.

Tackling challenges together

We make it easy for our customers to stay on track with the status of their electrical power system and assets. We do not stop at providing our customers with the necessary tools. We see our customers as our partners and through sharing knowledge, we can grow together.

At OMICRON, we value diversity, trust and initiative. We believe that in order to find truly ingenious answers, it is necessary to step outside of the comfort zone – we thrive on these types of challenges. From our point of view, these are the key ingredients for achieving long-term success. We are an international team and we cherish our global orientation. We solve problems by bringing together the best available minds from around the world.

A flexible organizational structure helps us serve our customers' needs

Over the last 30 years, OMICRON has grown from a small business into a globally active company, employing almost 800 people worldwide. Nevertheless, some basic principles of the way how OMICRON is organized have remained the same:

Our organization reflects our founder’s philosophy: it provides us with the conditions we need for offering our customers the best solutions and providing them with extraordinary support. Therefore, we create space for change in order to stay flexible and responsive. Local contacts and short decision-making paths help us to remain close to our customers.

Your challenges inspire us

Customers around the world rely on our innovative testing, diagnosis and monitoring solutions for electrical energy systems. They include energy providers and utilities, manufacturers of equipment for the transmission and distribution of electrical power and more.

Our product range spans from test sets and solutions for power transformers, circuit breakers, rotating machines and cable systems to test and calibration equipment for protection relays, energy meters, transducers or PQ analyzers. With our monitoring solutions even in-service monitoring of high-voltage assets such as generators, motors and cables is possible.

In addition, we offer a wide array of services in the fields of commissioning, consulting and training. By providing extraordinary customer service and creating opportunities for exchanging knowledge, we believe that we can create lasting and mutually beneficial relationships with our customers that will help us both tackle the challenges of the changing energy world together.

Customer support

24/7 support

Service centers on all continents provide a broad base of knowledge and extraordinary customer support. Over 40 highly skilled engineers from our support team are available to help you.

Local partners

Our local offices and partners are your personal point of contact in your area and are trained to assist you when working with your product.

Customer Portal

Our Customer Portal is the part of our service that is especially designed for the World Wide Web. After registering you can easily access valuable information and data from wherever you are.

Technical papers and videos

Papers and application notes written by users or our engineers about day to day subjects directly related to your application are available in the user area or on the product pages. Videos are there to help you get familiar with the product and its different applications in an illustrative manner.

High quality products that you can count on

In the high-voltage world, being able to rely on your tools is crucial. That's why all our products are developed and manufactured carefully by a dedicated team and local partners with whom we maintain long term relationships.

We only use high quality components and every product and software version runs through multiple tests before being released.

A detailed test certificate comes with every product to confirm that it functions accurately. Several awards and certificates that we have received attest to the quality level of our products and they also play an internal monitoring role for us.

It is still our ambition to go beyond the standards of these certificates to provide you with the most suitable and convenient solutions possible.

Innovation that goes beyond product development

Innovation has been a driving factor in our business since the founding of our company over 30 years ago. We see it as something all-encompassing – it concerns everything we do from interactions with colleagues and customers to the set-up of our working life to our products and services. 

At conferences, customer visits and on the phone we listen carefully to the description of your daily challenges and tasks and are then able to develop solutions that are tailored to your needs.

For us innovation is not something that exhausts itself in the development phase of new products and solutions. Ultimately, every single part of our company needs to contribute to the common goal.

We want to explore new ways of doing things – with our products and services, our working environment and in our communication and cooperation with others.

Knowledge Exchange leads to new solutions

Since our beginnings, it has been a common practice for our team to get out of the office and into the field, to be present at conferences, training courses and workshops with our customers.

By experiencing the real world challenges faced by our users, we are not only able to better assist them but we are also given the opportunity to gain valuable insights that often lead to ideas for new products and applications.

Through our cooperation with universities, research facilities and industry partners we are constantly extending our own knowledge. An ever growing range of OMICRON events offer you the opportunity to join in discussions with our specialists or get in touch with industry experts from all over the world.

Ideas flourish in a trusting environment

We believe in a work setting that entrusts each member of our team with a lot of responsibility. The diverse backgrounds, nationalities and experiences of our colleagues are seen as a fertile ground on which ideas can flourish.

Our working practices encourage team-work and open communication among colleagues and with our customers. An atmosphere of mutual co-operation encourages people to share their ideas, thoughts and opinions. We feel inspired by being able to find new answers that address your unique challenges and requirements.

In this way we have been able to create an exciting and motivational environment in which we develop our innovative products and services.

"Create an environment with no artificial limits where a team of excellent members can reach an excellent performance and enjoy working (having fun) together at the same time. This team should get its recognition for providing the best solutions to the customers."

(Rainer Aberer, Founder of OMICRON)

Education can be the key to an independent life

As players in the high tech world working in highly skilled teams, we often take a good education for granted, yet it’s still not a given for millions of children around the world.

The registered charitable association 'Crossing Borders – Education for children' was born from the vision of Rainer Aberer (the founder of OMICRON) and his team to change the world for the better. It assists other organizations and corporations in their mission to make good education accessible to children in less privileged areas of the world.

With the support of long-term projects we try to create lasting benefits for the development of the respective region.

The projects we have chosen to support are carefully selected and based on what we value most:

  • Cooperating with a local partners: 
    We believe that by joining our strengths we can create sustainable improvements. In projects we combine the know-how we have gained in several projects in the past with a local partner's knowledge of the local circumstances and inherent motivation to improve a given situation.
  • Keeping things close:
    We mainly cooperate with small organizations (NGOs) to keep the relationships close and the lines of communication short. This in turn gives us a good overview of the resources being spent. We feel more confident that by doing so, the means can really make a local impact.
  • Building mutual trust:
    Projects are usually brought in by one of the Crossing Borders members who often work as a mentor for the project after it has been given a green light. We find ways of getting to know the partner organization personally and we work closely with them throughout the project.
  • Empowering the participants:
    We always look carefully at the local realities and take them into account. Often pupils who have already had access to education function as trainers in the project and share their knowledge.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

(Nelson Mandela)
