York, PA – Red Lion Controls announces the availability of its new rugged E3 I/O module platform, a set of 17 high-density I/O modules with hardened metal enclosures and powerful communication options. This versatile platform marks Red Lion’s first rugged I/O modules configurable using Crimson® 3.0 software.
Designed to withstand the critical demands of localized and distributed I/O applications, Red Lion’s Crimson-enabled E3 I/O modules feature robust networking capabilities with redundant Ethernet ports and built-in serial communication. With one RS-485 terminal block and dual Ethernet ports that include user-selectable Ethernet modes for ring, pass through and two network, the easy-to-deploy E3 I/O modules can eliminate the need for additional switching devices. In addition, these modules offer up to 34 mixed I/O points including input/output, analog/discrete and temperature I/O for complex industrial applications.
Available in DIN-rail and panel-mount form factors, Red Lion’s E3 I/O modules feature rugged metal enclosures to support wide environmental tolerances and enable seamless integration into any industrial environment. Wide -40° to 75°C operating temperature, high shock and vibration ratings coupled with industry certifications that include UL Class I, Division 2 listing, ATEX* and IECEx* approvals make each E3 I/O module safe for use with industrial control equipment in hazardous locations around the world. Developed for industries including oil and gas, water, utilities, marine, transportation and mining, the E3 I/O module platform is ideal for critical-uptime applications where customers need to expand I/O for devices such as Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) or standalone deployments.
