About Us


Monitor Mapboard Systems is a mapboard engineering firm specializing in the design, engineering and deployment of system mapboards for the utility industry.  The Monitor system is widely recognized as a reliable, proven 24/7 electric utility operations tool and 'long-term' display technology that delivers enhanced Situational and Operational Awareness in Generation, Transmission and Distribution Operation Control Centers across all market segments including Investor Owned Utilities, Municipal Utilities, Electric Cooperatives and Federal Government installations.

Our Electric Utility industry experience dates back to 1954 with expertise in the area of Transmission Design. As a consultant to the industry in the 1970’s, the organization became a trusted engineering services resource for electric utilities in need of substation design, circuit diagrams and mapping. Our consultative approach was effective in identifying customer needs and solving problems which led us to revolutionize the mapboard display industry.

The Monitor mapboard system was developed in the mid-1980’s in direct response to an industry request for a more versatile mapboard display technology which offered ease of updating, improved graphic quality and one that could be customized to meet the unique operational requirements of each electric utility. This innovative technology continues to evolve and provide the 'big picture' to system operators and dispatchers across the industry.

Through the 1990’s, our modular, magnetically held steel panel format became a popular alternative to existing mapboard technologies primarily due to the superior high-resolution graphic quality and a most efficient means for updating the system operating diagram that provides flexibility for future expansion of your system.  Today, our advancements in system file development, print fabrication process, integrated electronics, mapboard lighting design and recently, the ability to deliver enhanced situational and operational awareness through Scadaboard, demonstrates our commitment to being an innovative, forward thinking business partner focused on the ever changing needs of the industry we serve.
