OUR SPECIALIZATION

Digipas division specializes in the  development, manufacture and distribution of HIGH PERFORMANCEQUALITY yet AFFORDABLE digital levels and smart inclinometers to replace the use of traditional spirit 'bubble' levels and conventional single-axis inclinometers. These proven industrial and scientific-grade instruments are built with advanced 2-Axis & 3-Axis Super-MEMS Technology, and precisely compensated for nonlinearity and temperature variation to effectively withstand stringent operating environments. The superiority of high-precision 2-axis MEMS Sensor compounded with digital embedded technologies offer 2-dimentional (planar) tilt-angle and leveling measurements with graphic-animated Smart 2D Bubble®  bull's eye, wireless and remote real-time logging unique capabilities. Essentially, these radically differentiated features transform into PRECISE, ACCURATE, FAST & RELIABLE leveling, wide-range angle measurement/tracking /monitoring (0° ~ 360°) at resolutions of 0.1°, 0.05°, 0.01°, 0.001°, & 0.0002° (5µm/M or 1 acrsec) as well as having small footprint and high shock/impact resistant (3,000g to 6,000g). These radically unique functions  with no mechanical moving parts of its sensor offer unparalleled performance and benefits to field engineers, application designers and scientists unmatched by any traditional spirit 'bubble' levels or conventional single-axis pendulum/servo-based inclinometers.

WORLD-PIONEERING INNOVATION & OUR CLIENTS

For over a decade, our innovation strategy is based on the concept of Transformative Innovation through which emerging technologies are relentlessly identified, developed and deployed to create radically distinctive new products with unparalleled performances greatly benefiting users, and   targeting these new products  to replace outdated conventional product range.

As leveling and angular measurements are vital functions for precision equipment installation, machine alignments and metrology in many industries within the precision engineering cluster, imprecise leveling a machine by using out-dated measuring tools affects its structural stability thus severely reduces the accuracy, functional and quality performances of the machine including its output machined parts/objects. In 2009, Digipas group pioneered the world's-first Digi-Pas® Dual-Axis MEMS-driven intelligent precision digital levels to replace the conventional 'bubble' levels, and it was in 2010 first introduced at IMTS, Chicago. In 2011, we further pioneered the world's-first Digi-Pas® dual-axis digital machinist level that had greatly simplified any high precision levelling and planar angle measurement tasks. In 2012, we sustained our innovation by presenting the world-first Digi-Pas® 2-axis ultra-precision inclinometer at JIMTOF, Tokyo. These intelligent-diagnostic instruments and technologies have been evidently used by some of the world’s most technologically advanced companies, research laboratories and government institutions such as NASA, Lockheed Martin, US Navy, US Air Force, Boeing, EADS (Airbus), Intel, Makino, Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi, MAZAK, BMW, Audi, Hyundai, US Naval Research Laboratory, Cambridge University's Cavendish Laboratory etc. For over a decade, we consistently gain high credibility to successfully innovate and scale-up our new products in volume and variety of models to meet the needs of our worldwide customers.

INTERNATIONAL AWARDS & MEDIA COVERAGE

In 2014, our eGeeTouch® business division pioneered the world's first, award-winning IoT-enabled Smart Locking Devices, for applications such as on luggage and padlocks which provide hassle free and enhanced security in safeguarding personal belongings for the increasingly mobile worldwide travelers. These smartlocks, serve an enduring needs for securing physical assets, strategically seek to displace those old-fashioned dial/key-locks. Upon launching in Tokyo, eGeeTouch® NFC-driven smart padlock won the New Product Award at Japan's largest DIY Homecenter Tradeshow for 2014 & also 2015. The radically-distinct eGeeTouch® NFC smart luggage lock contested among world's best innovation further won the highly prestigious Innovation Award at the world's largest US Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2015 and also consecutively in CES 2016. These world-first innovative products were featured by leading international media such as CNN, USA Today, Fox News, CBC News, Nikkei, CNet, Engaget, Mashable, UK's Daily Mail and many others.
