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 have a question that a more seasoned programmer probably doesn't have any trouble with but, I am having issues uploading a program from a 1769-L33ER PLC that is using Studio5000 Logix Designer V23. I can see the PLC on WhoActive and the RS Linx Classic and even am able to see the Driver Diagnostics for the PLC, however, the program never uploads. I am at a loss and am hoping you can help me. Thank you in advance for your assistance. I have attached a screen shot from RSLinx Classic; let me know if you would like anything else.
Good morning everyone!
Hope your week is off to a great start :-) I wanted to kick the week off by asking everyone who their favorite automation vendors are?
I ask because I want to be sure I reach out to all of them about having them on my show.
For reference, this a list of vendors who've come on this year:
See anyone you use that's missing?
Would you like to see any of these folks come back on?
Thanks in advance!
