My Notes

I was very late in recording Ronan in my pages, i started in 1999 and now 2013 the Post on Ronan is made.  When i was working on Industrial Instruments couple of decades ago. I have worked with some of their products. The products are a pleasure for the eyes of a Product Designer too. They make very Reliable and Tough products with a Simplicity in Circuit and assembly design.
