Flashback Friday! PanelBuilder32 “Providence Beer” Demo



Welcome to The Automation Blog's “Flashback Friday!”

Today I'm highlighting my PanelBuilder32 “Providence Beer” demo.

PanelBuilder32 Providence Beer 1The year was 1996 and I was tasked with designing a custom “hands-on” seminar for the new PanelView 550. The goal was to walk attendees through communication set-up, tag creation, and basic screen design.

In order to have a little fun with the project, I decided to model it after a fictional “Providence Beer” micro-brewery as our office was in Providence, RI.
