Red Lion’s highly scalable Graphite Edge Controller for extreme industrial environments
29 March 2017
Rugged industrial controller allows for rapid, easy deployment for small to large control and monitoring applications.
The Graphite Edge Controller is ideal for process and factory automation customers who require a rugged industrial controller with wide operating temperatures to control and monitor machinery in harsh environments. Easy-to-use tools give customers the ability to quickly create logic controls using familiar IEC 61131 programming languages and to interconnect devices using any of over 300 industrial protocols, in addition to providing data logging and web serving functionality.
The compact rugged industrial controller offers highly scalable I/O and combines networking and data visualization with industry standard IEC 61131 control capabilities in a small, easy-to-deploy footprint.
In addition to the integrated I/O slot for supporting small applications, the Graphite Edge Controller can be easily scaled for large applications using Red Lion Graphite Expansion Racks. The expansion racks allow up to 24 additional modules to be added to an Edge Controller. Modules provide expanded capabilities including analog and digital I/O, PID control, and additional specialized communication options such as DeviceNet and PROFIBUS DP.
