What started out as a research initiative at the University of Pretoria in the 1980s became
a group of innovative engineers advancing and improving on the latest technological trends.
Led by Dr Gilmer Klintworth, MECALC has become one of the foremost designers and
manufacturers of data acquisition systems in the world, crucial to markets where exceptional
development and production quality are essential.
MECALC’s commitment to the highest possible level of creativity, appropriateness, quality,
performance and style leads us to continually invest in our world leading team. Today this
team consists of around 100 people, of which around 30 are electronic, computer and
mechanical engineers, all focused on producing leading technology.
To date, we have over 150,000 ICP® voltage, temperature, strain, fatigue and
sound channels predominantly used in space, aerospace, consumer, precision equipment, power
and process, automotive and education/research industries which need to measure dynamic
data. With over 10,000 multi-channel systems sold, we rank among the best in the world.
