Red Lion Modular Controller Series Approved for use in Hazardous Locations
York, PA—September 30, 2011—Red Lion Controls, Inc. announces their Modular Controller series has been approved for use in Class 1,
Division 2 hazardous locations, allowing the product to function in places where explosive gases, vapors and/or liquids may be present.
Already deployed in a broad range of applications for data-acquisition and remote asset management, the successful Modular Controller series
can now serve a larger audience within the petro-chemical industries.
“This new approval further expands the available markets for Red Lion’s Modular Controller,” said Jesse Benefiel, Red Lion Product
Manager. “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 easy-to-use 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 Modular Controller's high-density DIN rail design saves panel space and
eliminates cutouts. Replaced modules are automatically programmed from the master, reducing downtime.
