Our Markets

Martin Company is located near Houston, Texas, an international center for many of the industries which rely most heavily on custom electronics. Petrochemical exploration and production companies, communications, and other technology enterprises demand reliable, innovative solutions. For over three decades, Martin Company has provided those solutions, developing a real depth of expertise in a wide range of challenging applications.

  • Corrosion, Cathodic Protection - Our engineers have completed a variety of projects for the measurement and control of corrosion in petrochemical pipelines and tanks, including cathodic protection, the science of using sacrificial electrodes to protect equipment in corrosive environments. We have also developed instrumentation that makes electrochemical corrosion rate measurements more conveniently than the traditional metal tab approach. Corrosion measurement and prevention is a major industry in Houston, which is the headquarters for the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE).
  • Seismic Systems - Clients involved in seismic exploration require rugged, battery-powered components with very high resolution and signal-recording fidelity. This industry has evolved from the Floating Point Gain Amplifiers to the Delta Sigma A/D Converter to achieve high resolution (equivalent to 24 bits of conversion resolution). Our experience and emphasis on fundamental principles assures the accuracy and reliability of these systems.
  • Radio, Telephone - Our projects in this field have included telemetry radios for the 220 Mhz seismic band, and several innovative data telemetry systems using off-the-shelf Spread Spectrum-based 928 Mhz and 2.4 GHz radios. We have also developed a PIC® microcontroller based telephone line protection device to limit the users of a protected phone to approved area codes only.
  • Refrigeration - We have designed specialized components for the niche industry that monitors and controls the compressors for supermarket refrigerators.
  • Subsea - Martin Company has developed a variety of subsea systems. One system makes various measurements and communicates those acoustically and optically through water. Another system makes measurements at the bottom of the riser pipe and communicates this acoustically through the drill stem. A published paper on the website describes the results.
  • Environmental Monitoring - We have over 35 years of experience in environmental monitoring, including design and development of automated sprinkler irrigation monitoring and control, and weather and air monitoring systems and software. An air monitoring system designed and developed by one of our engineers was called “state of the science” by the EPA.
  • Manufacturing / Production Automated Test Systems - We have integrated measurement instrumentation and designed and developed Windows®-based software for various production testing systems for oven temperature control, pressure generation and control, and generation of dynamic gas streams for test effects analysis and sensor calibration. These systems have included traditional bench-top multi-meter and multiplexor subsystems, as well as National Instruments hardware for PXI and PXI Express chassis.

Martin Company provides essential expertise and specialized capabilities for a wide variety of industries operating in many unique and challenging environments. We have developed technological solutions in a number of markets. Lessons learned in each field contribute to our ability to develop effective solutions in others. We maintain a strict company policy of protecting intellectual property, maintaining confidentiality and information security as defined by Non-Disclosure and Confidentiality Agreements. Normally, only one client is served at a time in a given market sector to further avoid "technology leakage".
