FROM RESISTORS TO AUTOMATIC CONTROL SYSTEMS
In 1921, Leonard Satchwell founded the Rheostatic Company Ltd. , with just 6 staff and one product - an unbreakable Power Resistor used for varying the speed of the trams and trolley buses. Rheostatic expanded into temperature controls and the domestic electrical appliance market.
In 1927, the Company introduced the world’s first commercially available thermostat with its patented magnetically controlled microgap switch. By 1931, the widespread use of automatic central heating in Europe led to a concentration on temperature control instruments and systems for automatic oil burners, oil stokers and other heating equipment.
In 1963, the name was changed to Satchwell Controls Systems Ltd. In recognition to the pioneering work done by Leonard Satchwell. In 1969, the Company became part of the General Electric Company, the largest electrical manufacturing group in UK.
We were the first company to recognize the potential of the silicon chip for environmental control products. Developments in the 1980’s enabled us to offer the first single loop direct digital temperature controller with networking capability.
Last January 03, 1997, Satchwell Controls was bought by SIEBE from GEC for £ 80 m.

OUR RANGE OF PRODUCTS
Satchwell manufactures a comprehensive range of products from controllers, sensors, valves and actuators to sophisticated Intelligent Building Management Systems.
Our products, when combined in a System, provide control solutions for Air Conditioning, Heating, Ventilation, Fan Coil Units, VAV Systems and Boilers.
The Intelligent Building Management Systems, the BAS2800 allows a building to be managed in a fully Integrated manner. Not only will it monitor, control and log all key aspects of HVAC performance, but by using the Open System Interconnect (OSI) model, the BAS 2800 provides interfaces for other systems, e.g., fire, security, access, lifts, lighting; to give a fully integrated and intelligent building system.
For applications such as small offices, schools and government buildings, the simpler Satchwell stand-alone controllers can also be linked and controlled by a central PC. The Satchnet software gives an easy-to-install and simple to use method for monitoring and controlling either individual or groups of small buildings and are sold via Satchnet integrators both in the UK and overseas.
