Imagine the best automation, control, and instrumentation product.

Out of thousands of products covered in Control Engineering during year 2000—in print, online, in electronic newsletters—our editors picked 40. The 14th annual Control Engineering Editors' Choice Award winners appear on the next few pages, with more information in the online version at www.controleng.com.

"What goes into a top-notch product?" people ask. Or, more directly, "How do we win?" I usually advise: "Make sure we know about your products, answer requests for editorial input, and stay ahead of our editorial calendar."

I always felt I should provide more guidance. This year I have by editing the best of every product release we received last year into one product description.

Surely this product would sell millions, win awards globally, and create prosperity for all, if not bring world peace...

Thousands of orders are pouring in already, in real-time...Want to see the demo?



New product/For immediate release

March 9, 2001—This new release offers sensing, networking, control, and actuation, in one integrated hardware/software package—operator interface and advanced control included... from EverythingtoEveryone Inc.

In a simple, yet advanced and flexible implementation, this all-new upgrade brings research and cutting-edge innovations to a proven, state-of-the-art solution with innovative, distributed, and central elements—modular, internal, embedded, and external options.

For use in standalone configuration or in conjunction with existing systems, this multi-tasking implementation works with all known operating systems, development environments, and browsers; is scalable, self-tuning, hot-swappable, with diagnostics and predictive maintenance for lowest life-cycle cost and maximum productivity.

The offering includes alarm prioritization, automated messaging, on-board indicators with self-explanatory, easy-to-navigate graphics and easy-to-use menus—no learning required. Because it's industrially hardened and uses commercial, off-the-shelf technology, it is rugged yet light, and can be panel or DIN-rail mounted, handheld, remote, wired or wireless. It communicates across all 150 open, standard, de facto, proprietary, industrial networks ever used, and will quickly auto-adapt to any interconnected network yet to be conceived. View in 3D, 4D, or triple-E wide, with multi-lingual, multi-axis, and multi-angle capabilities.

Incorporating automatic downloads and upgrades, this cost-effective version auto-configures to the specific industry and application, or is general-purpose, bridging the gap between instant online, on-screen simulation and real-time run-time, immediately upon initialization and startup.

With smooth operation and ergonomic, patent-pending design, this high-visibility, low-profile form factor is plug-and-play and color-coded, providing secure connectivity throughout the known and unknown universe. This product even uncrates and installs itself by an advanced robotic motion control system.

The price? It's free—quantity discount available. Contact us via phone, e-mail, fax, website, satellite, and public-broadcasting stations.
