About Us

Incorporated in 1981 in upstate South Carolina, Computer Dynamics, Inc. (CDI) originated as a board-level supplier of STD Bus products for industrial automation and control. Our extensive electrical engineering capabilities led to the development of our first PC-compatible 808x- based single board computers capable of driving flat panel displays. Driven by customer demand, we introduced the first flat panel display computer and monitor systems in the early 1990s. In striving to be your chosen industrial flat panel monitor manufacturer and industrial computer provider, we continue to expand the capabilities of these platforms to include the widest range of open-frame and enclosed systems for the industrial environment available.

In January 1999 CDI joined the General Electric Company with our acquisition by GE Intelligent Platforms, headquartered in Charlottesville, VA.

In May 2012 CIMTEC Automation (http://www.cimtec.com) based in Charlotte, NC acquired the assets of CDI from GE Intelligent Platforms. CIMTEC will provide all repair and support services for the CDI line as well as CDI products for new applications. For the past 25 years, CIMTEC has been a top distributor of GE PLC and other automation products. For the past 20 years, CIMTEC has been repairing GE PLCs and other automation equipment in Charlotte, NC. The addition of the CDI product line is a natural addition to CIMTEC's current repair and new product offerings.

We invite you to bring us your application requirements and allow our talented group of application engineers to help design the best, most cost-effective solutions, whether based on existing products or custom derivations of our standard platforms, tailored to your specific application and environment.
