Graphite Series of Advanced HMI Panels by Red Lion
The Graphite Series merges two of Red Lion Controls most highly successful product platforms into a single, extremely flexible solution. The nexus of the product is the operator interface panel which offers the award winning technology of Red Lion G3 HMI Series including protocol conversion, data logging and remote access. Programming the unit is easy using drag and drop selection within our Crimson 3 software allowing complete set-up in minutes. Add to all that capability, plug-in modules which provide I/O functions within the framework of the operator interface panel. The I/O modules are similar to our Red Lion Modular Controller Series product providing easy interface of sensors, discreet outputs and communication modules. The result is a complete industrial solution that connects, monitors, and controls while providing real time displays.
The operator interface panels are available in 5 different panel sizes; 7", 9", 10", 12" and 15", with the 7", 9" and 12" displays in the wide screen format. The displays are full colour touch panels in VGA, SVGA or XGA formats and operate as full touch screens. The all-aluminium construction provides very robust packaging that can withstand even the most demanding environments. If your application calls for outdoor use, we have two models, 7"and 10" that are designed for just that requirement. These models are ideal for harsh outdoor environments and support operating temperatures ranging from -20° and 60°C.
The units are able to communicate with many types of hardware simultaneously using high-speed RS-232/485 communication ports and Ethernet 10 Base T/100 Base-TX communications. Currently over 250 drivers are selectable in the Crimson Software which allows easy data mapping to PLCs, PCs, and SCADA Systems. In addition, the Graphite Series features USB host capability for fast downloads of configuration files and access to trending and data logging information.
Offering a built-in web server, Red Lion Graphite HMIs enable users to monitor and control their application via PCs, tablets or smart phones. SMS text-messaging and email alerts provide early warning of process issues, which helps to avoid costly downtime.
From factories to extreme remote locations, Red Lion’s rugged, sleek and flexible Graphite series allows customers to easily connect, monitor and control their process across a diverse range of industries that include manufacturing, oil and gas, and water/wastewater.
