FlexEdge by Red Lion embodies the revolutionary innovations that are continually transforming how information is communicated, monitored and controlled. A highly scalable IIoT platform, FlexEdge includes secure networking features along with powerful automation capabilities including industry-leading protocol conversion, IIoT cloud connectivity, multichannel alerts, visualization, data logging, and IEC 61131 control.
The FlexEdge platform will help ensure that your capital investments stay relevant and by allowing you to connect your equipment’s proprietary protocols to modern, open standards like OPC UA for enterprise visibility. The protocol driver library continues to add further value by unlocking the data already available in existing equipment, and the simplicity of Red Lion’s Crimson software allows you to quickly respond to new needs without costly redevelopment.
In addition, compared to fixed-function devices that require organizations to understand multiple products or systems, FlexEdge can easily adapt and scale as application needs change. Up to 10 hot-swappable I/O modules can be added, providing high-density analog, discrete, PID, relay and SSR options. As connectivity requirements change and new standard emerge, up tto three communication sleds can also be added, including multi-radio cellular, WiFi, ethernet serial, and USB connectivity.
