Pre-Release simMSTR Testing


We welcomed River Rook Software into our automation lab last week to test integration with Schneider M340 and M580 PLC’s and their newest version of simMSTR Simulation Platform. One of the great things about being a development partner is checking out the software before official release. I can’t wait to show our clients how this can save them money.

Another Great Cause! Movember 2017

The Hi-Def Heroes are back for Movember 2017.  We are raising money to support the Movember foundation through raising donations, committing to Move challenges, and playing poker!  Men's Health is an issue that is often swept under the rug, or regarded as inconsequential.  This year, we are taking action by raising funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Join us in our efforts!

Because We Can

Even in the downtime, it's still important to stay true to our community where we work and play.
