“Remote system monitoring, easy data access and powerful data visualization options are just some of the key advantages of digital transformation in factory automation. Our technology makes this data much more useful, so it can be analyzed for process improvements, factored into real-time calculations while also being visualized for easy monitoring and interaction.”

How To Unlock the Full Potential of Your Automation Data

Red Lion's industrial portfolio improves access to production data, SCADA systems and cloud-based analytics, enhances industrial network connectivity with advanced Ethernet switches and remote access platforms and delivers clear, actionable data to the factory floor with panel meters and HMI visualization products.

Scalable & Flexible

Automated manufacturers value the ability to modify their production systems to support new products or markets. They need data access and connectivity systems like the FlexEdge® Intelligent Edge Platform and Secure Remote Access products that make it easier to integrate new production systems, connect widely separated facilities and make efficient, flexible use of manufacturing data.

Rugged & Reliable

Many factories operate on 24/7 cycles – so when critical plant devices are down, costs mount up. Our industrial switches, edge computing platforms and HMIs are engineered to operate reliably for years in the field, including alarms to indicate when devices might need replacing as well as self-healing capabilities for rapid restoration.

Secure Solutions

Every manufacturer invests time and resources to secure their operations from ransomware and hackers. Through technology such as our Crimson software and our RA10 industrial firewall, we provide multiple tools to help protect applications from attacks by segmenting industrial networks into logically segregated units.

Digital Transformation

Smart, adaptive and future-proof automation platforms leverage the power of real-time industrial data to guide day-to-day operations and long-term planning. Red Lion’s full portfolio of access, connect and visualization technologies help deliver the full power of industrial data and digital transformation to manufacturers.



Bridging the IT/OT Gap in Factory Automation

Manufacturers seeking to fully utilize their industrial data need to move data more easily between the OT and IT domains. Red Lion’s industrial data portfolio includes protocol conversion capabilities, advanced cybersecurity, high-performance managed Ethernet switches and remote access systems – technology designed to bring complex, multi-vendor environments into fully integrated factories.
