The platform has been expanded to include a new Graphite Core Controller and Graphite Crimson Control Module that combine communication and control capabilities that reduce cost and ease operations. Both work with an enhanced version of the company’s Crimson 3.0 software with added Crimson Control functionality to provide a single programming solution for control, networking and data visualization. This allows users to apply IEC 61131 programming languages to solve specific needs by developing logic control much like a PLC or RTU without the added expense. The standalone Graphite Core Controller features all-metal construction and works with a variety of I/O modules to combine IEC 61131 control capabilities with networking and data visualization alongside the core functionality — protocol conversion, data logging and web serving — of a Graphite seven inch HMI minus the graphical display. The Graphite Crimson control module plugs into Graphite HMIs to form an all-in-one industrial solution that adds IEC 61131 control functionality without requiring additional panel space or a separate programming package. Also new are expansion racks that work with the Graphite platform to provide a scalable solution enabling organizations to remotely mount up to twelve plug-in modules to the back of a cabinet without extensive wiring. Each rack supports up to three plug-in modules and can be installed for a maximum of twenty modules per tethered Graphite connection.
