We are celebrating our 30th anniversary.
Fanox was founded in 1992, in Beaz, by Francisco Gomez, building a historic family business with the clear objective of bringing innovation to the electrical sector. Francisco came from Low Voltage. That’s why Fanox initially designed Protection and Control Relays for Motor Generators, Pumps, earth faults, control and metering, voltage, etc.
The focus was on electronics applied to protection relays. Robust commercial ties were established with customers who, when they chose Fanox, stayed with Fanox. They are still there today, and from time to time, we find installations with Fanox relays from 25 years ago that are still working efficiently.
The electrical power system undergoes constant transformations to provide uninterrupted supply to the growing demand for energy. We no longer depend on large generation plants, and small decentralized energy sources appear closer to the consumers. This fact brings complexity to the network, and with it, the solutions of companies like FANOX, dedicated to the protection of the electrical network, take an important role in the day-to-day of all energy consumers. The mission of a protection relay is to ensure the continuous supply of energy.
20 years ago, we realized the great potential of SELF-POWERED TECHNOLOGY. This solution means there is no need for auxiliary voltage to power the relay since it is powered by the energy obtained from the line it protects. It means a significant reduction in the maintenance of the transformer substations. And we became an international reference, leaping Medium Voltage.
Then Fanox faced the future with FLEXIBILITY to evolve, with the mind set on new customers, requirements, and market opportunities.
Visualizing the future of Renewable Energies, we prepared for it. Our relays are perfectly adapted to any installation, and this increase in renewable energies leads to the transformation that is taking place in the electrical system to an increasingly decentralized system.
Fanox’s transformation process has been in the making over the years, but 5 years ago, in anticipation of the established strategic sales plan, a significant investment was made in the IT and Application departments. Not only did the staff increase but these new means are included in the so-called Industry 4.0, which significantly improved the time and quality of the production process with features such as artificial vision and artificial intelligence.
