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:


More lights:


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.

In the mean time, if you have any comments, questions, suggestions, or corrections, please feel free to leave them here by using the “post a comment or question” link below.
