SME’s electrical department offers turnkey projects in the electrical and control environment. This ranges from Distribution Boards (DB) and PLC Panels to Variable Fan Speed controllers and our very own SmartMAC Multi-Application Controllers.

SME offers complete mechanical and electrical design, manufacturing, panel population, routing and low-voltage qualification.

Factory Acceptance and Testing forms an integral part of our success. All products are subjected to various simulated harsh environments in our climate control centre. Shock, vibration & EMI/EMC qualification are also done as dictated by the client or application. 

Our mobile professional electrical teams ensure a professional on-site installation. These teams cooperate together with the mechanical and civil teams in ensuring quality turnkey solutions.

Project experience covers a wide range of industries including Mining & Industrial, Defence and Railway and is not only restricted to South Africa. Projects have been completed in Turkey, Oman, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Mozambique and more.

SME promotes in-house innovative engineering, which includes developing state of the art electronic controllers for all our HVAC units.


We pride ourselves in our latest invention known as the Multi-Application Control (SmartMAC) System.

Our field of expertise:

  • Control Systems: Design & develop specific to a custom requirement; Multi-Application Controller (such as standalone variable fan speed controller); Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC); CAN Bus & RS485 communication; Wire LAN & Bluetooth communication interfaces.
  • Manufacturing of Distribution Boards (DBs); PLC panels; control panels; customized consoles (MMI); gensets (Auxiliary Power Units).
  • Installation, power cabling, instrumentation cabling, communication cabling; sensor equipment such NTC & thermocouple probes and pressure transducers; instrumentation and controllers.
  • Our success and growth in this industry results from our ability to deliver quality, innovative and flexible solutions on time.

SMART CONTROL

Think Smart. Use Smart.

The SME SmartMAC is our specially designed, ergonomic and modular Multi-Application Control (MAC) system which encapsulates the complete control system of an HVAC or APU unit.

It is a comprehensive control system with an ingenious design, vast capability and stack ability. The modular stack design enables additions at any later stage, which is ideal for upgrades and new features.


  • The General Purpose Controller (most important module) acts as the master controller to all SmartMAC modular stacks, and contains digital inputs & outputs, analogue inputs, relays, USB and CAN Bus.

  • The Electronic Surveillance Module (ESM) provides data logging and receives all the data from all other modules in the system. It then writes it in a recognisable format to an SD card. Real-time system monitoring can be obtained via Bluetooth or a USB connection. A cellular phone can be used for retrieval of real time data, but it can also be used for sending commands to the unit. Status and control can also be done from any location via internet.

  • The module can also be used as a solid state relay for switching compressors or fans. The module provides superfast protection against short circuits, overvoltage, over current and over temperature of the component it is driving.

  • The SmartMAC simplifies and reduces the space consumed by a conventional control system.

  • Reduces downtime as a result of electronic failure (easy replacement of modules).

  • Protects the electronics from harsh environmental conditions.

  • Interfaces with our purpose-built compact Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) or control panels for where comprehensive insight into system diagnostics is given.
