EEP Sister Site, Control, is Launching Control Automation Day

May 20, 2022 by Ian Hahn

Slated for June 21, Control Automation Day 2022 will take a full dive into PLC systems, and is set to be packed with keynote addresses, educational live sessions, and exciting giveaways from your favorite OEMs.

Though each strives to forge its own identity, EE Power is but one arm in a cadre of sites under the EETech Group banner. Since 2020, the original and largest of the lineup, All About Circuits, has held its annual “Industry Tech Days” event, a five-day trade show and conference featuring the biggest players in the world of electrical engineering.

Building on that momentum, EETech’s team over at Control Automation is for the first time launching its own one-day, virtual show for engineers on June 21. Featuring leading manufacturers, vendors, and integrators, Control Automation Day 2022 will provide an in-depth look at some of the most advanced programmable logic control (PLC) equipment orchestrating modern manufacturing. 


The Control Automation Team is launching Control Automation Day 2022 on June 21.


PLC systems are common, but new technology is constantly in the works, making continual skill development critical for engineers. Given this, it’s no surprise that Control Automation readers are so consistently hungry for PLC content, which is among the most popular topics across the various domains covered by the site.

To help engineers improve the fundamental troubleshooting and maintenance skills that make for smooth everyday operation, Control Automation strives to satisfy that hunger by keeping an attentive eye on industry leaders and the new products they produce.

At Control Automation Day 2022, leaders themselves will deliver keynote addresses, and sessions with live Q&A will be hosted by EETech’s very own electrical and mechanical engineering team. Together, attendees can bank on that tandem delivering comprehensive coverage of the exciting trends and information defining the PLC space, helping them to solve problems and meet future objectives. Oh, and have some fun, of course.

The goal here is to provide valuable insight to anyone looking for it, regardless of industry application or skill level. Whether you’re a student, entry-level engineer, or a seasoned control automation veteran, the Control Automation team will have something for you on June 21.
