Control Engineering Automation Integrator Guide, an online directory of automation system integrators, received its 2,000th listing on Jan. 8, 2009, from Project S.r.l., an automation system integrator located in Firenze, Italy. Project S.r.l. offers a variety of contract engineering services for industrial automation and control projects ranging from programming PLCs and RTUs to implementing supervisory software built on proprietary platforms.

In addition to the 2,000 listings, since the on-line Control Engineering Automation Integrator Guide was launched in 2001, 1,690 more listings have been submitted by companies that have subsequently gone out of business or failed to meet Control Engineering 's definition of an "automation system integrator." Control Engineering defines an automation integrator as a contract engineering firm or an engineering division of a larger company that can design and implement computerized control systems for industrial machinery, manufacturing lines, or other automated facilities that produce either a commodity or a finished product. That definition includes automation, control, robotic, and test system integrators as well as automation contractors, automated machine builders, multi-disciplinary engineering firms with instrumentation and automation divisions, and product vendors that also offer application engineering services.

A system integrator may or may not provide the automation products required for a particular project but must be capable of integrating the hardware and the software with the client's existing facilities. Companies that provide individual elements of an automation project (such as consulting, programming, electrical contracting, or panel construction) are not qualified for inclusion in the Automation Integrator Guide unless they also offer the remaining services required for a complete turnkey installation.

The on-line Automation Integrator Guide with its multi-parameter search engine is available free of charge at www.controleng.com/integrators . Readers can locate specific kinds of system integrators according to any combination of industries served, areas served, engineering specialties, product experience, corporate affiliations, professional affiliations, annual revenue and/or location. The Integrator Guide can also be searched by keyword and company name.

The 18th edition of the hard-copy Automation Integrator Guide was published in December 2009 and distributed to Control Engineering North American subscribers. In addition to selected listings from the on-line edition, the hard-copy Integrator Guide features the winners of Control Engineering 's 2010 System Integrator of the Year competition plus several system integration case studies and the annual state-of-the-organization message from the Control System Integrators Association.
