By: Samantha Magee

On Tuesday, January 21, Vice President of Human Resources Stacey Gisclair presented a Lunch and Learn on Danos culture. With over 120 employees tuned in, Stacey walked us through the journey of transforming Danos' culture and what goals we still have to work toward.

When Industrial CPUs Fail

12-Dec-2019

By: David LeBeouf

​Once the modern CPU became the industry standard for automating facilities, maintaining their associated software files brought new challenges to the industry. A common facility can have one or more CPUs, each containing a unique software file. These software files are application specific and contain customized instructions for operating the facility equipment while simultaneously maintaining safe operational limits. If a facility’s CPU fails and there is no back-up of the software available, the facility could remain down for weeks while software is redeveloped. Read More...
