:: Crimson 3.0 ::
Programming software for Graphite™, the G3 and G3 Kadet series of operator panels, CSMSTRSX, CSMSTRGT, CSMSTRV2, and Data Station Plus.
Welcome to Crimson 3—the latest version of Red Lion’s widely-acclaimed configuration software.
Red Lion’s latest release of Crimson 3 features a number of new drivers including an enhanced version of the Emerson ROC Driver. Now the G3 Series HMI, Modular Controller and Data Station Plus products have access to one of the widest used protocols in the automation market. In addition to the ROC Driver, we have also released a CANopen PDO Slave driver and a number of camera drivers, to include Cognex, Microscan, PPT Vision and IFM Efector.

With multiple protocol support built into every Red Lion interface product, a second protocol can be chosen to acquire data from the original driver. Once collected, the G3 series HMI, Modular Controller or Data Station Plus can convert the data to a different protocol so that it can be integrated with virtually any PLC, PC or SCADA system. The data may also be recorded in IT-friendly CSV file format for later review, using the built-in data logging facilities.

With this new offering of drivers, over 250 protocols are now available on the Crimson 3 Software.
Many of Red Lion's products can be programmed using Crimson 3 - for those products that still require Crimson 2, please see our Hardware Support page.
