Company and Product News

Red Lion Controls, global expert in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation and networking, announced that the company's flagship Crimson 3.0 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.

Craig Resnick, ARC Advisory Group, commented, "One of the many challenges faced by end users, OEMs, and system integrators is to find software tools that enable communications between hundreds of disparate devices and protocols in both a cost effective and time effective manner. These software tools must be intuitive enough to enable disparate device and protocol communications via simple configuration programs that do not require programming or training. Red Lion's Crimson 3.0 software appears to fulfill these market requirements that in turn provides the business benefits of quicker project deployment, better asset utilization, and a greater number of devices actively communicating, all of which results in increased productivity and profitability for manufacturers and integrators alike."
