Diane & Phillip Tompson

Founders of Novaris

Novaris was first established in 1993 in Kingston, Tasmania. The company’s products instantly filled a demand by providing high quality surge protection products designed to withstand some of the highest lightning environments. This ideology continues to be the core of our design philosophy today.

In 2003 Novaris Technologies, Malaysia was established to expand manufacturing capability as product sales grew globally. As part of this expansion it was essential to globally establish ISO9001 compliance for all Novaris research and production sites. The compliance ensures that all Novaris products manufactured worldwide maintain our exacting quality standards.

We continue to be active in research and development in the fields of surge protection techniques and application. The Novaris high voltage test lab gives our team the necessary resources to confidently develop and test new designs. This equipment is extensively used for in circuit testing when designing customised protection for specific applications. One of the founders and directors of Novaris, Phillip Tompson, is a member of the Australian Standards EL-024 Protection against Lightning committee and represents Australia on the IEC TC81 and SC37A Lightning and surge protection committees.

Novaris products have proven capability in the protection of electrical disturbances and our innovative team of R&D engineers are able to design surge protection solutions for the most demanding applications. The advantage of Novaris’ success is its capable and enthusiastic staff chosen for their ability to be innovative and in their willingness to work in a leading edge technological environment.

With the knowledge and skills that Novaris possesses, comprehensive advice to the customer can be given upon request to suit any application for the protection of their equipment and electrical systems. Novaris has become recognised for its ability to provide flexible solutions and sound advice for individual customers based on many years of experience in the sector.

Novaris’ products are produced in accordance with the latest world standards and as such are regularly used by many companies and individuals to protect their systems from potentially severe electrical disturbances. Applications include railway signalling, SCADA, power systems, process control, data networks, CCTV, security and communications systems.

Novaris is able to offer an analysis and design of new or existing surge and lightning protection systems. Our experience extends worldwide in all disciplines of electrical engineering.
