Option card adds MPI connectivity
Red Lion’s G3MPI option card increases the communications capabilities of G3 operator interfaces, allowing G3 HMIs to communicate with Siemens' devices that support the MPI protocol, without requiring the use of a converter cable.
The card is simply added to the G3 HMI’s expansion slot during installation. G3 operator interface panels—ranging from advanced models to value-based panels for less demanding applications—provide an intuitive interface for connected devices. G3 operator interface panels allow users to monitor, control or acquire data from 13 or more devices simultaneously.
