50+ Years of Technical Excellence
Founded in 1968, RTP began operations as a division of Computer Products, Inc., and in July of 1997, RTP Corp. became a privately held company. For its first twenty-seven years in business, RTP provided high-performance data acquisition systems to the worldwide nuclear market and I/O front-end subsystems for minicomputer driven data acquisition and control systems at some of the world’s largest industrial companies. These process control applications were typically characterized as being located in harsh environments, yet with demanding requirements to provide accurate analog measurements under extreme environmental and EMF/RFI conditions.
With a solid foundation of field-proven, high-performance, and high-reliable I/O hardware, RTP decided, in 1995, to expand its product offering, and added control software and a control processor to its I/O front-end subsystems and introduced its Hybrid Control System. In 2002, the company entered the safety market with its SIS product offering. The decision was not to develop just another safety system but to have a “Best in class” system with the following objectives.
