Our core competencies lie in the design and manufacture of high voltage fast pulse generators and associated measurement equipment.

Montena is now one of the world's leading manufacturers of test systems for assessing the immunity of electronic equipment, larger systems or critical infrastructure to high-power electromagnetic threats. These test systems have been supplied and installed on every continent in more than 20 countries.

We recently developed a new line of repetitive fast pulse generators to address the growing demand for innovative industrial processing techniques based on reversible electroporation or on cold plasmas. We are convinced that these techniques open the way to new applications, with improved efficiency and yield, in a wide range of industries, medicine and even agriculture.

Mastery of high-voltage pulse generation techniques
In-depth skills in the design of antennas, striplines and radiating structures for electromagnetic pulses
Experts in the measurement of fast high intensity voltage and field transients
Extensive experience in the development and manufacture of industrial products and systems

Our activities in the field of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) date back to 1975 with the creation of EMC Fribourg SA which later became Montena EMC. Over the years, the business of developing EMC test&measurement equipment became large enough to be set up as a separate entity, Montena Technology in 2011.

Since then, Montena has specialized in the development and manufacturing of high-voltage and high-speed pulse generators, as well as in the techniques and tools needed to measure these pulses.

Montena’s products and solutions are used for EMC testing, for R&D activities in the field of high voltage and high frequency, and for new innovative industrial or medical processes using fast electric field pulses.
