Modular controller series for use in hazardous locations
Designed for data-acquisition and remote asset management, Red Lion’s Modular Controller series has been approved for use in Class 1, Division 2 hazardous locations, including places where explosive gases, vapors and/or liquids may be present.
Companies working in hazardous environments can now safely integrate multi-zone PID control, data acquisition and I/O into their industrial control systems, while also adding advanced remote asset management and control features to their process. Programmed with Red Lion's Crimson® software, all connected devices can share data with the controller and each other, through a simple drag and drop mapping of their registers. The controller's high-density DIN rail design saves panel space and eliminates cutouts. Replaced modules are automatically programmed from the master, reducing downtime.
All models of the Modular Controller Master, as well as every input module have been approved. Control and output modules fitted with solid-state outputs complete the comprehensive offering. Available modules include: CSOUT,4-Channel Analog Output Module; CSDIO, Digital I/O Module with Logic Engine (solid state output models); CSINI8/CSINV8, Analog Input Modules; CSPID2, PID Control Modules (solid state and triac output models); CSTC8/CSRTD6, Temperature Input Modules.
