Unprecedented Operator Interface Configuration & Control

Choose from over 300 drivers

With Crimson, simple applications can be set up quickly using a step-by-step process to configure communications protocols and define data tags for access. An extensive menu of built-in, point-and-click serial and Ethernet drivers map controller data to PLC registers in seconds. Built-in communications drivers inherently know how to talk to PLCs, PCs or SCADA systems—so no code is required to establish communication.

Red Lion’s universal Crimson 3.0 software is a remarkable programming platform. Delivering a powerful set of drag-and-drop configuration, display, control and data logging tools, Crimson was designed specifically to take full advantage of Red Lion's product architecture.

Red Lion's Graphite and G3 Series HMIs, Modular Controller and Data Station Plus products have access to the widest used protocols in the automation market.

Here are just a few of the exclusive features and capabilities included with Crimson:

  • An extensive library of point-and-click device drivers to quickly establish communications between Red Lion products and any device
  • Built-in gateway and protocol converter to Ethernet-enable any connected device
  • Multi-lingual capability with support for thousands of characters used in formats like Cyrillic or Thai that lets OEMs use a single database for global markets
  • Complete library of over 5,000 industrial graphics in over 60 different categories
  • Built-in emulator to test user interface, data logging and even the web server
