Free operator interface configuration software simplifies design

Red Lion Crimson software works with G3 series and G3 Kadet series HMIs.



Red Lion Controls announces Crimson 3.0, the latest version of its free operator interface configuration software. With a redesigned interface and many new features, Crimson 3.0 facilitates simplified design and implementation of attractive and powerful user interface solutions.

The new software works with the company's G3 Series and G3 Kadet Series operator interfaces, Modular Controller and Data Station Plus process control and data acquisition devices, and supports five global languages-English, Spanish, German, French and Chinese-with more languages planned for future release.

The software lets users simply perform the following tasks:

-Drag tags onto the screen to create instant objects;

-Create hundreds of tags using smart copy to auto index register addresses;

-Achieve faster programming by using quick menus that provide a short list of the most common tasks;

-Utilize anti-aliased fonts for improved user visibility;

-Select from many new images added to the database of already more than 4,000 images.
