SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Finesse, a manufacturer of measurement and control solutions for life science applications, announced today that it has joined Modbus-IDA in order to pursue an active role in the application of Modbus technology to the life science industry.
"We recognize the critical role that Modbus technologies can play in reducing the costs normally associated with utilizing Distributed Control Systems instead of PLC's for life science applications," stated Larry West, Executive V.P. Sales at Finesse.
