Control Design's Readers' Choice Awards

Top product provider picks of the Factory Automation Industry as chosen by Control Design readers.

Every year, we send out questionnaires to our subscribers who tell us they specify, recommend or buy industrial automation and control products. Vendors are not eligible to vote, and are excluded from our electronic ballot list. The voting is only for our machine-builder and system-integrator readers.

We use an unaided ballot, meaning we don't provide a list of vendors or product brands to choose from. We include 50-odd hardware and software categories and ask participants to name the companies that provide them the best technology value for the products with which they have experience. Once they chose the best providers, participants rate service and support they receive from them. Only companies that received at least 5% of their category vote are recognized in our awards.

Find out who has made history and received a Readers' Choice Award.
