Dear Reader,

Summer not only brings us heat, huge amounts of Vitamin D and holidays. It also brings out our sociable side. We communicate more. Both online, in our social media, and offline, face-to-face. We do more things, we mingle more, and according to studies, all that makes us happier.

Immersed as we are fully in the summer, and considering that the need to communicate also affects our machines, just for them, to make them happier, this month we present the latest in fieldbus communication. Together with a new refreshing new product video.

Another summer together.

Welcome to the July edition of the e-Matters,
