Readers Choose Rockwell Automation for Top Automation Products — Again

Rockwell Automation continues its award-winning tradition in the Control Design magazine 2009 Readers’ Choice Awards.

Readers of Control Design have again named Rockwell Automation as a top automation supplier in the magazine’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards. The company continues its tradition as the perennial list-topper, winning or tying for first place in 19 hardware and software categories in the 2009 survey. The company received 30 first through fourth place finishes.

Categories in which readers ranked Rockwell Automation as a top supplier include controllers, data acquisition system, motor drives, industrial network hubs/routers/switches, I/O systems, intrinsic safety systems, measurement, operator interface terminal, programmable safety controller, relay, safety components, software and more.

Partner companies in the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetworkTM also took honors, including Strategic Alliance Partners Endress+Hauser, Inc. and Cisco Systems, Inc., and EncompassTM Product Partners Pepperl+Fuchs, Inc.; AMCI; Molex, Inc.; Hoffman; ProSoft Technology; Autodesk; Mettler-Toledo, Inc.; Festo Corp.; EPLAN Software & Service GmbH and Bentley Systems, Inc.

Ranking companies for terrific service and support in specific product categories, readers awarded their highest service ranking to Endress+Hauser in the flow measurement category and to Rockwell Automation for network routers and switches. Voters recognized Rockwell Automation service and support in 26 product categories, and Endress+Hauser in four categories.

The Control Design Readers’ Choice Award is an unaided poll, meaning that survey respondents select suppliers from which they specify, recommend or buy industrial automation and control products. Responses are top-of-mind, rather than chosen from a predefined list. Vendors are not eligible to vote. With 45,000 subscribers, Control Design magazine is published by Putman Media, Inc. and is exclusively dedicated to the special information needs of industrial original equipment manufacturers.
