Work of Lascar Employee Recognized with Electronics Weekly BrightSparks Award

Congratulations to Lascar employee John Alton, who has received a BrightSparks Award from Electronics Weekly in recognition of his work at Lascar on the development of our PanelPilotACE product. The BrightSparks awards aim to inspire and encourage new entrants to the electronics industry by giving some insight into the work and achievements of those in the early stages of their electronics careers. John spent four years studying electronic engineering at the University of Southampton, starting a summer internship with Lascar Electronics after his first year of University. During that first summer, he was introduced to the company’s new PanelPilot display range, and began work on the first proof of concept of what would become PanelPilotACE, our custom panel meter and touchscreen controller. John returned to Lascar every summer before joining the company full-time upon graduation in 2014. Today, he continues to work on the PanelPilot range. Recent developments he has brought to market include data logging functionality, a seven-inch display variant and RS485 features.
