Red Lion Controls flagship Crimson3.0 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.

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 Red Lion’s 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.

Red Lion will demonstrate the power of Crimson’s protocol support for today’s Connected Factory live from PACK Expo booth 8747 in Chicago Nov. 2 to 5.

Attendees are invited to take the “Crimson Challenge” to discover how Crimson can be used to drive efficiency across industrial automation applications.
