Alternative Energy

Alternative energy is a growing sector of the world’s power supply. For wind, solar and hydro sources to reliably scale, production must become more dependable and cost effective. With industrial automation and networking offerings, Red Lion gives energy producers the ability to remotely connect, monitor and control all types of assets that range from wind turbines to solar panels to hydroelectric generators. Our rugged industrial products include:

 

Red Lion’s Graphite® platform is comprised of the industry’s first rugged HMIs and controllers to combine I/O modules with protocol conversion, data logging, web-based monitoring and IEC 61131 control capabilities. Built for extreme environments, Graphite HMIs and controllers feature cast-aluminum housing and CE, UL/cUL and UL/cUL Hazardous approvals that support a wide operating temperature range and high shock/vibration tolerances common to industrial applications. Expansion racks and HMI model-specific outdoor sunlight visible displays are also available. Learn More.

 

Red Lion’s N-Tron® series NT24k® industrial managed Gigabit Ethernet switches offer a wide array of port configurations, media types and Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) models that include 10/100/1000 copper,  Fast Ethernet and Gigabit fiber options. With up to a -40° to 85°C operating temperature range, wide 10 to 49 VDC power inputs and 50g vibration and 200g shock tolerances, our rugged NT24k switches provide reliable network performance in alternative energy applications.
