Hi and welcome to the about page for PLCGurus.NET!
My name is Fred Graham and I am the primary content creator and site moderator here at PLCGurus.NET. A little bit about me. I have over 15 years experience in the Industrial Automation field and have found there is a lack of a good, modern, online community by which to share information, experiences and solutions, hence, PLCGurus.NET is born.
My formal education, has always – in some way, shape, or form – been tied to the realm of automation. I started out at a community college where I studied and received a diploma in Electrical Engineering and subsequently pursued my certification as a Certified Engineering Technologist (C.E.T.). From here, I pursued my undergraduate degree in Computer Science with a concentration on Software Engineering and graduated with first class standing with a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.). After which, I continued to pursue my graduate degree and completed my Master’s of Engineering Design (M.Eng.D.) in Process and Production Systems.
That said, I really felt a need to start a new and refreshing website centered around knowledge, information sharing, and all things Industrial Automation and Control Systems. Through my research I’ve found that other sites centered around automation all seem to have one thing in common…they’re ALL trying to sell you something. As a result, all posted blog content, forums, and video training tutorials are, and will always remain completely FREE!
Of course, to help out with the operating costs of the site we do appreciate any support that you may offer by checking out some of our great downloadable content that will support your learning, buying some great swag in our apparel shop, or by simply making a donation. Also, if you are an avid Amazon shopper then please consider clicking on one of our Amazon Links. It won’t cost you a penny more to do so and we will receive a very small commission when you do.
I encourage you to join our growing community and share your industrial automation stories, solutions and experiences so everyone who shares our passion can benefit!

Thanks for visiting!

I know PLCs, automation and controls is our thing, but what about amateur astronomy??? Sometimes you just need to take a break from it all and looking up to the stars is a great way to do that.
