About Us

Home / About Us

Summit Technology was founded in 1992 by Ken Kious with an ambitious idea. “Why not make a smaller, cheaper power analyzer that could be used anywhere, on anything, without becoming obsolete?” … Why not? … Ken was a successful electronic engineer and small businessman who knew what he valued when he bought or rented measurement gear. At that time, analyzers were the size of personal computers, cost an arm and a leg, and had limited capabilities. Since that time much has changed, but the PowerSight brand remains an expression of our core values:

We are committed to your success.

We design to maximize your success!

We design in redundancy, error correction, wizards, and offer all the accessories you need to be sure that:
  • You will be able to do what you need to do.
  • You will have success in your results.

We value your efficient use of time.

We understand that your efficiency will pay for the analyzers many times over, so we design in features that save you time at every step of the monitoring process.

We will support you.

Our expert technical team is dedicated to your success throughout the monitoring process. We know what we are talking about because we designed it ourselves and have worked with people like you for over 20 years.

We value your investment.

That’s why we are constantly improving our products.
While you keep your warranty active, we maintain your hardware, upgrade your software, and provide trade-in opportunities.
Your capabilities will grow with us.

Your safety is the basis of our design.

Meeting the highest safety standards is just one component of the system safety design.

PowerSight: Your partner in Safety, Speed, & Success … now and into the future.
