A part of Emerson Industrial Automation, Control Techniques has a single minded focus on the design and manufacture of variable speed drives. Control Techniques has been creating ground breaking technology since introducing the first digital DC drive over thirty years ago. Control Techniques combines extensive industry experience, modular drive design, powerful technology and advanced tool kits to provide complete industrial automation solutions. Our innovative products are used in the most demanding applications requiring performance, reliability and energy efficiency.

Created in 1973 under the name of KTK the company launched its first range of DC thyristor drives designed for industry applications.

In 1985 KTK became Control Techniques, within this first year, Commander AC Digital Drive and Mentor, the world’s first Digital DC Drive were successfully launched. From this point onwards Control Techniques global presence and product range grew, with the introduction in 1992 of a complete range of products for factory automation and the launch of Unidrive in 1995, the world’s first universal AC Drive. 

In 1995 Control Techniques became part of Emerson Electric Co. at this point in time Control Techniques had established 45 Drive Centers around the world. Heavy investment in research and development became the company’s focus and it is this dedication to design and innovation still remains the case today.

With worldwide manufacturing and engineering and design facilities, Control Techniques are focused on creating innovative AC, DC and servo drive solutions for use in industrial equipment and manufacturing process and high efficiency power conversion systems for renewable energy applications.

Control Techniques drives are designed and produced using technologies that reduce energy consumption and protect the environment. The materials used within our drives are up to 85% recyclable. We operate an Environmental Management System (EMS) which is certified to the International Standard ISO 14001.

Re-energise your business

Control Techniques drives may be configured to power a motor or re-circulate excess braking energy back into the mains supply, reducing energy consumption and significantly reducing your energy bills.

The drives manufactured by Control Techniques have the potential to save energy in most applications and through increased machine/process efficiency reduce raw material consumption and scrap throughout their long working lifetime. Waste materials are recycled to reduce any harmful impact on the environment. We are committed to environmentally sound disposal of old equipment.
