Red Lion Controls' Advanced Operator Panels
Red Lion Controls' new Graphite series of advanced operator panels, with all cast-aluminum construction, provide first rugged HMI solution to combine a wide range of versatile plug-in modules with protocol conversion, data logging and web-based monitoring and control.
With models in sizes ranging from 7” to 15”, the sleek Graphite bezels provide a relatively large display given their overall dimension. Both the 7” and 10” HMIs are available as sunlight visible models. Combined with Graphite’s rugged packaging and flexible plug-in modules, these models are ideal for harsh outdoor environments and support operating temperatures ranging from -20° and 60°C.
Using a built-in web server, Graphite HMIs enable users to monitor and control their application via PCs, tablets or smartphones. SMS text-messaging and email alerts provide early warning of process issues, which helps to avoid costly downtime. In addition, its built-in protocol converter allows programmers to select 13 or more simultaneous protocols from a list of over 300 to seamlessly integrate disparate devices such as PLCs, drives, barcode readers and panel meters.
