When you're a blogger, support from both followers and vendors is crucial to success.
And over the last year great vendors like Siemens, Mitsubishi, Wago, IFM, SMC and PF has sent me enough samples to keep me busy for several weeks.
That type of support is crucial to allowing me to cover new products because as we all know, Industrial Automation products are some of the most expensive products on the market (for obvious reasons.)
Beyond products, swag is also nice to get, and the great folks over at Siemens just sent in the swag in the attached picture which I look forward to wearing on an upcoming show.
That said, I'd love to broaden our reach to include other vendors big and small, like Rockwell and eWon/HMS.
So if you have any contacts with automation companies you'd like to see me cover, please reach out to them and ask them to consider sponsoring my free blog and video series so I can continue to bring you new content throughout the year.

I discuss a reader's question about if you can collect data from a MicroLogix which is already communicating with an HMI using Modbus RTU by using a 1761-NET-AIC in this episode of The Automation Minute.
