Congressman Keith Rothfus Visits Teletrix

Last week Congressman Keith Rothfus (Pennsylvania, R) arranged a visit to Teletrix while in the Pittsburgh area.  What a great visit, what a fine representative for our area.

Congressman Rothfus was open and frank in discussing his views on the inadequacy of the Affordable Care Act, reeling in excessive spending in Washington, bureaucratic red-tape in government purchasing and the “who you know” practices in federal contracting.  How refreshing, to our ears at least.

We shared our business and product line background with Congressman Rothfus and our latest technology in creating our award-winning line of radiation training simulators.

Hats off to you Keith!

It’s Official: Teletrix is 25 Years Old

Yes, it was 1988, August, and it all started in the basement of a home.

Teletrix 25 Year Emblem25 years later we’re in a real office with real employees, a lot of real customers and an ever growing selection of solutions to support radiation protection training.  In honor of this achievement, our designer, Leo Bauerlein designed this outstanding 25th emblem that will be represented all over our designs, media and promotions.

Our internal celebration was a not so simple authentic Chinese dinner cooked in traditional style by marketing specialist Kai Wei and dessert was a custom logo cake with a bit of imbibing in fine spirits as well into the wee hours.

This coming 25th year celebration will continue on a periodic basis with reach outs, contests and promotions.  Stay tuned, join us when you can and let Leo know how you like his design.



It’s Not Goodbye for Luke…

Luke Yount came to us this summer right out of Plum High School and has been an exciting addition to Teletrix.  Good thing though: it’s not goodbye for Luke.  As he proceeds to further his education at the University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering, with an eventual focus on his Nuclear Engineering Certification he has agreed to continue his CAD and design work with Teletrix on a part-time basis, a real win-win for us all.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Luke’s high school career was varied and heavy in robotics.  As a member of the Plum High School Robotics program and the Gateway High School Robotics program he was involved in award winning competitions and a Pennsylvania State Championship as well.

His skills at 3D CAD and the Solidworks platform has elevated Teletrix production and R&D processes allowing designs to be fully implemented in the virtual world to nuke out potential problems, issues and consider alternate solutions .

We wish Luke the best and wish him a storied career and look forward to seeing great things from him in the future.

Can I Get a 10? Come Out and Vote!

25 years ago, when Teletrix was born in the basement of the owner’s home as a labor of great love and much pain, times were different.  There was no ‘high tech’, ‘digital’  mid-wife available to ease the process and so we were conceived rather starkly – with an idea that ‘source-free’ radiation training thru hardware simualtion was the brain child that would open the door to supporting safe, hands-on radiation training and make an honest, contributing living for us.  It was. 
From hand-held Simulated Radiation Meters, Probe Paks and Dosimeter Simulators to the larger stand-alone SAM, PM and PCM Training Systems, our baby has grown in size and scope but in the course of raising ourselves to the fullness of tomorrow, we realized that we weren’t keeping up and were in dire need of digital life-support.  Our website was original (as in “outdated”) and so we were met this past year with a challenge: recreate our internet presence with interactive website design, videos, digital branding, social media, etc.  With the help of young genius, out indeed did spring near perfection.  So heck, we thought, lets see if this is as stellar as we think it is, submitting our branding and ground-breaking SAM, PM and PCM Training Systems in an annual award contest sponsored by the Pittsburgh Technology Council.  we are FINALISTS in the 2013 Design, Art & Technology Awards
Now, of course as proud parents of a veritable “re-birth”, we want to not only share our on-line transformation….but we hope that you, as a brand new, or long-valued customer or friend, will want to VOTE so we can WIN!  And have no doubt, WE WANT TO WIN.
So please click here and then find our in the category of DESIGN AND ART.  Click on Teletrix – and give us the “10’s” we so richly deserve!  Unfortunately, we can not bribe you with cute little bobble heads or golf towels, but we will promise to say a very heartfelt thank you, for your vote and for your continued and much appreciated loyalty and use of Teletrix Radiation Training Simulators.
The deadline for voting is May 1st.  So HURRY for goodness sakes!

Teletrix Adds Realism to New England Radiological Health Committee Radiological Exercise

Teletrix participated with great success in adding to the realism of a simulated radiolocial exercise along side the 2012 New England Radiological Health Committee (NERHC) Full Participation Exercise.  Due to the use of Teletrix simulators, no radioactive sources were used to generate radiation readings during area surveys and decontamination frisking.

HAZMAT Team using Teletrix SP900 Probe PaksThe response included the Vermont HazMat Team who used the Teletrix SP900 Probe Paks on their meters for doing personnel and area surveys and decontamination activities.  Also assisting with controller responsibilities for the HAZMAT Team were members of the United States Coast Guard’s Atlantic Strike Force as well as Mark Sells of EPA Region 9. referred to as “Operation Sparkling Champlain” on 

October 25 by providing SP900 Probe Paks and controller personnel.  

The exercise developed by Tetra Tech under the leadership of Dr. William Irwin was a response to a fire and explosion that resulted in a radiological incident.

Additional participants in the exercise were members of the New England Compact, FBI, Brookhaven National Laboratory and local Fire Departments and many others.
