Leonard W. Moore, founder and president of Moore Industries (www.miinet.com), was named an Honorary Member of the International Society of Automation (ISA, www.isa.org), the highest honor given by the organization.

Moore received the Honorary Member distinction, “for contributions in the advancement of the arts and sciences of automation over a 40-year career of innovation, product development and business leadership,” according to the ISA. Moore will be presented with a special plaque and pin to mark this achievement at the ISA Honors and Awards Gala on Oct. 3, 2009 at the Westin Galleria in Houston, Texas.

“The list of previous winners is impressive to say the least. I am, of course, extremely honored to be part of this elite group,” said Moore, in a prepared statement.

Moore holds several patents related to electronic instrument packaging, signal conditioning and instrumentation and monitoring systems. One of Moore’s patents is for the Cable Concentrator System, which allowed dozens of I/O to be transmitted on a single, twisted-wire digital pair in the late 1980s.
