Software Red Lion Launches Crimson 3.0 Software
Red Lion Controls, the global experts in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation and networking, has recently released an update for the company’s flagship Crimson 3.0 software.
York, Pennsylvania/USA - This software now offers communication support for more than 300 industrial protocols. Protocol conversion is a key element needed to make the concept of the Connected Factory a reality, empowering plant managers to adapt existing equipment including drives, PLCs and HMIs to drive efficiency while reducing total cost of ownership in industrial environments.
With just a few clicks, Crimson converts protocols for disparate industrial devices, allowing them to share work-in-process, machine status and other information. Deployed on Red Lion’s Graphite HMI panels, ProducTVity Station, Data Station Plus or other industrial automation offerings, Crimson gives organizations the ability to boost productivity, optimize material usage and troubleshoot systems in real time. Supporting the simultaneous conversion of multiple protocols, the use of Crimson-enabled products allow companies to easily integrate almost any PLC, PC or SCADA system for data collection, monitoring and control of factory floor equipment from different manufacturers.
