Courtesy: Red LionRed Lion Controls announced its Crimson 3.0 software platform is  compatible with Banner Engineering's iVu Plus TG vision sensors. Integrating Crimson 3.0 with Banner’s iVu Plus TG enables users to display vision sensor operation and perform commissioning and operation via Red Lion G3 Series HMIs, Modular Controller or Data Station Plus. Using the intuitive touchscreen interface featured on G3 Series 8-in., 10-in. and 15-in. HMIs provides users with the ability to visualize image outputs and direct iVu Plus TG operation remotely, Red Lion said.

Additionally, for enhanced data visibility and accessibility, interfacing iVu Plus sensors with HMIs and other management tools enables users to apply the built-in, data-logging capabilities inherent in Red Lion products to inspection applications. Users can record and export data from the iVu Plus, storing it in an IT-friendly, CSV file format, so data can be viewed through universal desktop programs, such as Microsoft Excel.
