Substantial Patent Portfolio
WA continuously develops new technology and solutions for shock protection, leakage current protection, DC current detection, self-testing and end of life (STEOL) functions, and ARC Fault Current protection and continuously files patents to cover such developments.
Patents are of huge importance to Western Automation. Since 1985 we have filled over 80 international patents and this trend is set to continue long into the future.
Once we develop a design that we believe is patentable we go through the lengthy and costly process of filing a patent, but this has the benefit of securing our technology and avoiding patent infringement claims. Once patents have been secured we can then move on to the design, development and production of the technology with confidence and increased security. For our customers this gives greater reassurance and huge commercial benefit.
