Prime Controls Inc.

The future of Double Sheet Protection is in front of you

Prime started in 1992 as a privately own company located in Kettering Ohio, a suburb of Dayton. Originally Prime branched off from Hyde Park Electronnics, Inc. (now ka. Schneider Electric Sensor Competency Center) to market and improve Double Sheet Detectors. Prime's initial goal was to improve the product line with state-of-the-art designs. By 1997 Prime accomplished that goal by replacing or improving all the previous products with features such as pushbutton calibration, metal optimized auto-frequency adjustment, international ready power supply, simple package, quick disconnect control, quick disconnect sensors, self test and fault indication. Since 1997 Prime provided additional products generated by customer suggestions for improvements. Totally new detectors were designed to provide auto-calibration, adjustable reject thresholds, under detection, auto thickness compensation, thin foil detection and improvements in detecting difficult metals like copper, stainless steel and magnesium. Today Prime Controls is the world's foremost Double Metal Sheet Detector supplier, providing products and services to can making, automotive, appliance, circuit board and other metal forming sectors. Our company is committed to the development of new products with the most advance available technology. Our growth strategy is focused on providing products that simplify metal detection operation and provide the highest possible reliability for our customers.
