In today's article I'm posting pictures from the floor of Automation Fair 2014

Some of the smaller booths also looked great, like this one from Dalsa:
Here we see the entire family of Micro800 Controllers and I/O:
And here are the motion options for the Micro800:
Funny, kind of felt like seeing an old friends when I stumbled across the MicroLogix Family:
(how come there never was an Ethernet processor for the 1500 base? Yes, I asked!)

I'm sure the radio and antennas are only installed inside the panel for convenience:
Well that's it for my pictures from the show floor of Automation Fair 2014.
In the coming days I'll be posting product specific pictures along with any new information I learned at the show.
