Red Lion’s Graphite® advanced operator panels.
Red Lion provides the industry's first HMI touchscreens to combine a rugged yet aesthetically-pleasing all-aluminum construction with a modular I/O architecture are Red Lion’s Graphite® advanced operator panels. With UL Class 1, Division 2, ABS, ATEX and IECEx approvals, Graphite enables customers to connect, monitor and control processes in harsh environments. All of the Graphite models offer drag-and-drop protocol conversion, data logging and web-based monitoring and control.
Graphite is the industry’s most rugged HMI to offer the versatility of plug-in expansion modules. Expansion modules 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.
Rugged and Sleek:
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 inch to 15 inch. Both the 7 inch and 10 inch models are available with UV-resistant, sunlight-visible displays for outdoor use.
They can manage multiple-vendor applications and provide the ability to network-enable existing equipment. Communicating with over 300 different protocols. Select the PLCs, drives, motion controllers or PID controllers that work best with your application, and control them all from one Red Lion Graphite HMI. Graphite HMIs are the most powerful HMI communication platform available today
Graphite comes standard with one USB Device and two USB Host ports, one 10/100Base-T(X) Ethernet port, two RS-232 and one RS-422/485 serial ports. Additional RS-422/485 and or Ethernet ports are available on specific models.
Remote Control and Monitoring: With its built-in web server, remote personnel can monitor as well as control equipment from virtually any networked device. The Graphite excels at keeping personnel informed of machine and process performance and can also alert personnel about existing or pending issues via email or SMS text messages to ensure problems are addressed quickly in order to minimize downtime.
Graphite HMIs, with its built-in data logger, offer a powerful means for recording continuous data as well as events and alarms. Data can be acquired via any connected devices and compiled into CSV-formatted files. Then it can be stored, displayed, emailed or automatically synchronized with an Microsoft SQL or FTP server.
Included with each Graphite HMI is Red Lion’s powerful Crimson® 3.0 software. It is a remarkable programming platform that unlocks the power of Graphite with simple drag-and-drop, point-and-click configuration. It is unlike competitive HMIs that charge you extra for cumbersome software, as Red Lion’s Crimson software is always free & regularly updates.
