We talked to Massimo Banzi of Arduino

We had the opportunity to talk with Arduino co-founder Massimo Banzi at Control Automation Day this past spring!  


Control Automation Day 

Last June, we hosted Control Automation Day, a one-day, free virtual conference and trade show designed for control engineers. Our 2022 show focused on exciting industry education about all things PLCs—with keynote speakers from Rockwell Automation and Arduino. In case you missed it, or would like to revisit, our sessions can still be watched on demand

We are excited to once again host Control Automation Day. Stay tuned to hear who, what, and when!


Conferences had the opportunity to attended Automate in Detroit and Automation Fair in Chicago this past year, getting hands on with well-known and upcoming technologies. In 2023, we will be attending ATX West in Anaheim and others!



If you haven’t yet had a chance, check out our new tools. We now have everything from a Temperature Unit Conversion Calculator to Pressure Unit Conversion Calculators. 


Textbook Update 

We are in the process of updating our textbook and encourage you to check out a few of our updated chapters: 

This is a process we will continue into 2023.



We’ve put together some pretty neat eBooks, and if you haven’t checked them out already, we highly recommend them! 

Watch out for a 3-phase Motor Wiring one coming out soon.


Watch as David explains the hardware that is commonly found across all makes and models of PLCs.



Our very own Director of Engineering, David Peterson, and team at EETech have put a lot of work into developing video content. Check us out on YouTube and look out for more video content to come in the new year! 


Shoutout to all of our readers for being a part of our thriving Control Automation community. Please, we are always happy to hear your feedback and questions. We can be reached at [email protected]
