Red Lion Graphite Edge Controller

Red Lion developed its Graphite Edge Controller for process and factory automation in even the harshest environments.

Available from Control Logic, this compact rugged industrial controller offers highly scalable I/O and combines networking and data visualisation with industry standard IEC 61131 control capabilities.

Featuring high tolerance to shock and vibration and an extended -40 to +70℃ operating temperature range, the Graphite Edge Controller is ideal for controlling and monitoring machinery in harsh environments.

Easy-to-use tools allow users to quickly create logic controls using familiar IEC 61131 programming languages - such as ladder logic, function block and structured text - and to interconnect devices with as many as 300 different industrial protocols. There is also easy access to data logging and web server functions.

The controller has a single I/O slot for supporting small applications, but is easy to scale for large applications using Red Lion Graphite Expansion Racks offering up to 24 additional modules.

Modules are available to extend I/O capabilities, including analogue and digital I/O and PID control. There are also additional communications options such as DeviceNet and Profibus DP.
