Red Lion’s CrimsonR: now support for over 300 protocols

Red Lion’s CrimsonR Software has reached milestone with support for over 300 protocols. The company is set to demonstrate the role of protocol conversion in the connected factory live at PACK EXPO 2014 Red Lion Controls, one of the global experts in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation and networking, has recently announced that the company’s flagship CrimsonR 3.0 software now offers communication support for more than 300 industrial protocols. Protocol conversion is a key element needed to make the concept of the connected factory a reality, empowering plant managers to adapt existing equipment including drives, PLCs and HMIs to drive efficiency while reducing total cost of ownership in industrial environments.
“One of the many challenges faced by end users, OEMs and system integrators is to find software tools that enable communications between hundreds of disparate devices and protocols in both a cost-effective and time-effective manner,” said Craig Resnick, Vice President, ARC Advisory Group.The software tools must be intuitive enough to enable disparate device and protocol communications via simple configuration programmes that do not require programming or training. Red Lion’s Crimson 3.0 software appears to fulfill these market requirements that in turn provides the business benefits of quicker project deployment, better asset utilisation and a greater number of devices actively communicating, all of which result in increased productivity and profitability for manufacturers and  integrators alike.
