Courtesy: Red Lion ControlsRed Lion's Graphite series of operator panels, which feature HMI touchscreens and an all-aluminum construction with a modular I/O architecture, were featured at Pack Expo in Chicago. The Graphite models offer drag-and-drop protocol conversion using Crimson 3.0 software. They also feature data logging and web-based monitoring and control. The Graphite series is suitable for factories and extreme remote locations.

Graphite HMIs feature reliable, resistive analog touchscreens and a rugged aluminum housing that allow them to operate in high shock, vibration and temperature applications. Standard and widescreen models are available in sizes ranging from 7-in. to 15-in. Graphite also features plug-in expansion modules, which can be installed on-site and allows the Graphite to be customized to any application. Available modules include dedicated PID controllers, digital I/O, analog I/O, high-density thermocouple, RTD, strain gage, as well as a fully-isolated universal analog input module. Mix and match modules to meet your application needs.

Graphite comes standard with one 10/100Base-T(X) Ethernet port, two RS-232 and one RS-422/485 serial ports, one USB Device and two USB Host ports. Additional Ethernet and/or RS-422/485 ports are available on specific models. They can also communicate with over 300 different protocols and manage multiple-vendor applications and provide the ability to network-enable existing equipment.
