Since establishing in 2001 we have grown significantly over the years to provide innovative cutting-edge products. We are the experts in the field of power protection and filtration and have patented technology in some of our products.
Over the years our reputation for quality and reliability have earned the trust of many different types of customers, whether they are electrical engineers or just someone looking for a product that does what it says, means we must not sit on our laurels but continue to perform into the future to maintain the standards now expected of us.
Research, development, engineering and design are undertaken in Australia and New Zealand. R & D is an important part of our business. Our products are generally borne from concept making our Company rare in that the Intellectual Property and expertise is home-grown. We take products from concept through to shelf ready in stores.
Thor Technologies is 100% Australian and very proud of it.
Remember we are local so if you have a problem or there is not a product in our range available to you off the shelf come and talk to us as we may be able to build it for you – it is that simple!
Thor Technologies has enjoyed market acceptance because of its experienced and talented research and development team. Our R & D team includes a university based Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering specialising in surge protection and incorporating PHD & Doctorate students assuring the cutting edge of innovation is razor sharp.
Success has not been by chance but due to careful planning and market research coupled with the strong desire to lead with cutting edge technology. We believe in continuing to improve and strive for new innovative products. This is an ongoing process and is often borne from valuable feedback received from our customers.
We are happy to offer a “no question asked” power board warranty as we value the information we can obtain from products that have been active in the field. The data obtained from these products help us to keep improving our range.
Our research and development is done in Australia and New Zealand. Keeping to a true ANZAC tradition.
We are proud of the SC Regeneration patented circuit. It is a game changer with a non-sacrificial design. To date we have not been able to “damage” this unique protection circuit. Even using a lightning simulator hitting the circuit over 130 strikes in under an hour did not even stress the patented protection circuit. To do a comparison a top range surge board would survive one or maybe two similar strikes before perishing. The circuit can easily be embedded or integrated into existing products that need bullet proof protection.
SmartBrain has a premium filter technology called Dynamic Active Tracking. This unique filter has the best chance of “cleaning” electrical noise because it shields around 40% more frequencies when compared to other filters. It is an Active filter and can “clean” unwanted frequencies on both the upward curve and the downward curve of a sine wave (power). Most other filters only work at the crest of the wave and therefore miss a huge section of unwanted frequencies that can generate noise on sensitive electronic devices.
We have more than 120 years’ experience in the field of both Electrical and Electronics engineering. Together our two main engineers have a combined experience of over 80 years.
We work in tandem with an Associate Professor in Waikato University in New Zealand who has written many highly credited papers and is highly regarded in his field. Our engineers often deal with difficult customer problems and design solutions when the customer thought there was not one.
Nihal Kularatna, Associate Professor, specialising in surge protection at Waikato University in New Zealand has with his team of Doctorate students been an integral part of our R & D team
over the past 7 years. The Waikato University based experts co-developed our current patented SC Regenerative surge circuit.
With a very experienced sales team nationally. Our two longest serving team members have been with us for over 12 and 16 years. They are well known within the industry and highly regarded.
Our Director George Forster-Jones has over 30 years’ experience in the electrical and power protection industry. His extensive experience includes product knowledge, research development,
manufacturing, production, customer service, sales training, marketing and management. Our Head Office administration team have been with us for more than 15 years and is based in Perth, Western Australia. Our Queensland support administration staff have been part of our team for 10 years. Our admin team pride themselves on providing the highest level of customer service in a friendly and timely manner.
We produly support Diggers Rest – A Soldiers Retreat who gives back to those who have served our great nation.
