New Rugged RAM 6021 Provides Secure Communication Between Local and Wide Area Networks

York, Pa. – November 5, 2013 – Red Lion Controls today announced the addition of the compact all-in-one RAM® 6021 to its Sixnet series RAM 6000 industrial routers. RAM 6021 routers offer industrial and manufacturing site operators a secure, flexible way to remotely connect, monitor and control assets, saving time and reducing costs across industries that include factory automation, oil and gas, and water/wastewater applications.

Red Lion’s rugged RAM 6021 industrial routers are purpose-built for extreme conditions and deliver the security required to prevent unwanted intrusion in both the connected factory and remote locations. By facilitating communication between local and wide area networks, the RAM 6021 provides the ability to seamlessly connect, monitor and control machinery and equipment. Add in robust security features, which include a stateful firewall, network address translation (NAT) and VPN connections, and the RAM 6021 delivers a powerful all-in-one solution that seamlessly connects to existing Ethernet infrastructures, including networks with Modbus and DNP3 enabled devices.

The RAM 6021 also provides a high-performance user interface that simplifies unit configuration and management. This sleek, graphical web interface is now available across the entire portfolio of Sixnet series RAM and IndustrialPro® industrial routers.

“The connected factory is now a reality, and Red Lion’s new RAM 6021 router allows customers to benefit from using industrial automation and networking to increase productivity, control and visibility while reducing operating costs,” said Diane Davis, director of product management for Ethernet networking at Red Lion Controls. “With an easy-to-use web interface, flexible configuration options and enhanced security features that protect against intrusions, our rugged RAM routers deliver reliable communications across the factory floor and other extreme environments.”

Today’s organizations increasingly seek ways to connect, monitor and control devices to create state-of-the-art monitoring and control systems. Linking industrial assets requires rugged solutions that ensure flexible, secure communications from the plant floor to remote locations around the world. RAM 6021 routers integrate industrial automation with networking to increase productivity and reduce costs by minimizing the need for onsite visits for equipment troubleshooting and maintenance.
