Wayzata, MN— To diversify the products and customers for its Intercon 1 division, Nortech Systems recently bought the assets of Zachariah and Lundbergh Inc. (Z&L, Marco Island, FL), which manufactures camera power supplies and cable assemblies used in machine vision systems for the industrial, medical/scientific and security markets. Terms of the acquisition weren’t disclosed.
'This addition significantly enhances our catalog and opens up new markets for our established products,' says Bud Brown, Intercon 1’s GM. The division has sales offices in Baxter, MN, and its manufacturing facility in Augusta, WI. 'They’re a major supplier to the machine vision industry, which is our primary customer base, and they have strong penetration in several key markets.'
Intercon 1 serves the machine vision market in the U.S. and more than 40 countries with cable assemblies, specialized ultra-high-flex bulk cable and some camera power supplies, which now will be expanded to include regulated, switching, desktop and wall-mount units. Brown says Z&L’s power supply line will be increased to serve almost all the countries where Intercon 1 already does business.
Nortech adds that Intercon 1 is one of only two suppliers in the world recognized by the official Camera Link Committee as an approved supplier of Camera Link cable assemblies. Camera Link is a rapidly growing interface protocol for extremely high-speed digital video cameras used in industrial, medical, scientific and security applications.
