    You should list Beckhoff Automation. I understand they are now as big as A-B & Siemens. I picked them 10 yrs ago when searching for a high-speed PLC (<1 ms response) that would work as a controller for propulsion testing. The only alternative I found was B&R Automation. For HMI, I later bought Indusoft, but haven't used since that project is on hold. These are all more modern approaches which should appeal to engineers, though one can still use Ladder Logic, if so inclined.

    Omron Automation & Safety has a very comprehensive product line-up and impressive next generation NJ series Machine Automation Controllers. Have a look and keep up the good work. http://industrial.omron.us/en/products/catalogue/default.html

  3. Frank,

    I found your website on the Linkedin Group, “controls and automation” I’m with CSIA. I see you have a list of companies here. If it’s ok, would you mind sharing our website. There the readers can find automation and control systems suppliers and integrators. The site is https://www.csiaexchange.com/

    Thanks!
