Welcome to The Automation Blog's “Flashback Friday!”
Today I'm highlighting my PanelBuilder32 “Providence Beer” demo.
The 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.
The resulting PanelBuilder32 project represented what each student's HMI should approximate after completing all the labs.
Posted on my original website back in 2002, you can now find this article and PB32 project HERE on The Automation Blog:
