Founded in 1964 by the Scott family, Selectronic Australia quickly established itself as a major manufacturer of custom made transformers and inductors for the local electronics industry. In 1981 the company's electronics products division was established to meet a need for quality power conversion products in the emerging renewable energy market.

At a time when power inverters were new and renewable technologies were just starting to emerge, Selectronic Australia became an innovator in the field by producing its first power conversion product - a 360 Watt DC to AC modified square wave inverter.
