Computers and Solutions for Demanding Duties Since 80's

Sunit - Experienced on Client-Entrepreneurs

1981 two Engineers, brothers Eero and Harri Suutari started  “Kajaani Automatiikka” focusing on Electronics for harsh environments

It was started by meter-robotics for welding units and control system for Road-painting tractors for Finnish roads.

"On that time closest to Tough-electronics was TV on the living room and Radio on exclusive cars." 

Industry-Automation for Field-Environments was created.

Innovation builds the future.

For us it have always been along Hard-working Clients. 

“It is about Courage and Curiosity with Humility in Overalls Back-pocket”

Product of Finland – Long In-Field Lifetime in Edge

Sunit Computer Technologies is designed 100% by Sunit in Finland.

Electronics that claims for long In-Field Lifetime in harsh-workings, requires that it is designed by working conditions in edge. 

The Environmental conditions in Finland is excellent base to evaluate and test products. Sometimes we have minus 45 Celsius, sometime heat up-to plus 35.

Our customers are in absolute front of efficient-thinking and are not afraid to call us for participate on their working environments.

Excellent base for QA/QC.

Product of Finland – Respect for the Environment

Sunit Computer Technologies is designed 100% by Sunit in Finland.

Our values are deeply respecting the Environment and our strategy base on Long-Life Electronics. 

It have been our core-value since 1983 – Breath Fresh-Air.

Each of us has the Obligation and Responsibility of our Environment.

The Electronic industry is one of most Environment-impacting industry.

We ask; “What-if”.  What if we all within Electronic business help environment by designing products to last double up today?

Our mission is frankly Environment friendly products without reservations.

The Qualification tests for Certifications are applied by internationally vehicle approval certified laboratories.

Products have Certification due to  E10 Regulation.

100% Quality Assurance

A Precise and Strict Process is the precondition for Good Manufacturing Practise.

During the process each part and product are prior assembly covered by at least 4 times of Quality controls.

The Assembly process—which functions as a Can-Ban, have 100% inspections on each assembly station.

Finally, the products are stressed by Burn-In process with Full loaded Processor capacity.

During Burn-In the Check application monitors the product and reports each possible interrupt or failure.

The process contains application for all kind of Client applications, like Video, Communication, I/O-traffic etc.

Our Warranty Field-failure rate is currently <0,1%.
