Attn:                 Purchasing Manager/Pricing Personnel

Snowy Workday in Dallas

February 4, 2011

Well I left my house at 6:56 a.m. and got work at 7:29 a.m.  Light traffic today. Imagine that!

The Pre-Super Bowl festivities might be a bit off track but answering the phones when customers calls Innovative-IDM is not!  With over 4 inches of snow covering the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, I rolled up to Innovative-IDM HQ just before 7:30 to find 7 others had beat me to the office!

In true Innovative-IDM Legendary fashion, at 7:30 a.m. our phones came off “night ring” and were turned live to our Customer Service Group. We are open for business. If you need our help, even today, give us a call.

We Offer Sensors, Vision and Feedback Devices

June 24, 2010

Innovative Automation is a leading provider for Omron and other manufacturer sensors. Our customers demand it.

Sensors, Vision, and Feedback Devices can be thought of as the “eyes and ears” of industrial automation. External sensors collect data from the system, such as presence, position, distance, color, text data, and quality control information. This data is fed into control devices, such as PLC’s or motion controllers, for processing. Although similar in function to many Safety products, these products do not meet the guidelines for preventing injury to life or limb.
