New Products, Awards, Media Highlights, MVPs - The 2015 Roundup!

Cara Bereck Levy



2015 was a great year for Unitronics.


We introduced products to round out our existing lines: UniStream, Vision, and Samba. We also leveraged the UniStream platform with powerful new features such as EtherNet/IP communications and a full Alarms system.


This was also a great year for the Unitronics community. Check out some cool statistics for 2015:

  • We welcomed over 9,000 new members to our user forum…
  • …who made 2,300 posts in 571 467 new topics
  • …that were viewed 163,419 times!

In addition to our Unitronics support team gurus, there are some fine forum members who devote a great deal of time to helping others, writing detailed answers to questions and helping people trouble-shoot their applications.


This year, two of our top posters from 2014, Joe Tauser and Flex727, were again top contributors to the Unitronics community.
The list of top UniGuru MVPs for 2015 are:

  • Joe Tauser
  • Barry Lanier (forum name: Flex727)
  • Chris Antcliff (CantCliff)
  • Keith Walker (Walkerok)
  • Ausman

To show our appreciation, the profiles of our MVPs will be marked with a new icon:




Time is precious—to volunteer that time to help other people using your expertise is truly worthy of respect--thanks to you all!


Now, </drum roll/> please join me—for the Unitronics’ 2015 Roundup!
