2017 was a year in which our tradition of excellence in innovation was recognized by:

-         Frost & Sullivan, a major market research and analysis firm. Frost & Sullivan conducted an in-depth review of Unitronics products, specifically our 3 major product series--Samba, Vision, and UniStream--in relation to the dynamic, competitive market that challenges PLC manufacturers. Unitronics was awarded their Best Practices Awards for product innovations.

-         Control Engineering, honoring our Samba 7" with an Control Engineers’ Choice Award in the category of Hardware – integrated HMI controllers. This was the 6th—yes SIXTH—year in a row that Unitronics' programmable controllers have received this prestigious industry award.

Product Releases
