However, like your company, we remain resilient and will continue to move forward. Creating value-added content in blog articles is one way we’ve been able to stay connected with you.

These articles allow us to connect with you on relevant industry topics, especially during these imposing times. There is no surprise that a few of our most popular articles last year were related to the situation in 2020, including tips on how to clean machinery HMI touchscreens and how we conduct trials in our labs with customers connected remotely. If you missed some of these articles, here is a list of the top five in order by popularity.
