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

First up: I thought the Informational Software booth with overhead displays was impressive:

I also thought the mock control room was very well done:

Many of the booths also sported large touchscreens like the one pictured below:

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!)

Sensors! I'm always impressed how much these guys can fit into such a small area:

That's a lot of Proximity Sensors…

Lights! Something about the holiday season and lights drew me to the next two displays:

Molex always shows off an impressive number of modules:

As does ProSoft Technologies:

Finally, I always love checking out the demo control panels to see what's being shown off inside. Below are a couple of the better ones:

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.
