Fieldbus News Items
- Ireland's journal of instrumentation, control and automation.
For many years we published resumés of issues of Read-out on the Processingtalk Pages. In the change broght about by the selling of that site they changed their editorial policy and refused to publish our releases. We commenced publishing these short accounts ourselves in 2009. PDF Copy
From March 2013 we have posted a pdf copy of each published copy of Read-out.
