Red Lion Controls Inc. announces the addition of a communications driver supporting the Omron STI G9SP safety controller.

Aw 408 1106 Red Lion Pr

This new driver allows the company’s popular G3 Series HMIs, Data Station Plus and Modular Controller Series to monitor and control one or more Omron STI G9SPs. In addition, these Red Lion products add advanced protocol conversion, data logging, and web-based remote access to applications using Omron STI’s newest safety controller.

Using this new communications driver, the products that can now support the Omron STI G9SP include:

• G3 Series HMIs: Versatile operator interface panels that can connect, convert, acquire and control data—from anywhere

•Data Station Plus: All-in-one protocol converter, data logger, and remote asset management solution

•Modular Controller Series: Multi-zone PID control and data acquisition platform with protocol converter, data logger, and virtual HMI

These products provide some of the most powerful and advanced data management and control solutions available today.

Crimson 3.0 is the complimentary and easy-to-use software platform for programming Red Lion products. The Omron STI G9SP driver is the latest addition to over 200 protocols that Crimson 3.0 currently supports.

"With the addition of this driver, our products can act as a gateway to one or more G9SPs, allowing it to pass data to virtually any PLC or SCADA system within seconds. Crimson achieves this through simple drag-and-drop data-mapping—no PLC ladder logic is required," said Jesse Benefiel, Red Lion Product Manager. "Serial and Ethernet versions of the driver are available to accommodate both types of G9SP communications."
