    A history of MODICON Controllers from 1969 to 2019

  • Did you know …

    You probably already know that the first Modicon PLC model was called the 084. But did you know why? Well, the 084 was the 84th project to be undertaken by the Bedford Associates group. Quite simple really!

    The Bedford Associates group, who formed the company Modicon in 1968 after calling their invention Modular Digital Controller, consisted of Dick Morley, Tom Boissevain, George Schwenk, and Jonas Landau (pictured from left to right)
