12.1" Outdoor Graphite HMI for sunlight-readable applications

Red Lion Controls is releasing the 12.1" Outdoor Graphite HMI to meet the most demanding sunlight-readable applications. With all cast-aluminium construction, the Graphite series provides the industry's first rugged HMI product to combine a wide range of versatile plug-in modules with protocol conversion, data logging and web-based monitoring and control.

Red Lion's Graphite series allows customers to easily connect, monitor and control processes in industries that include manufacturing, oil and gas and water/wastewater. The Graphite series offers a range of plug-in modules that enable customers to easily integrate digital and analogue I/O, as well as advanced communications modules to create powerful HMI systems today, with an option to expand to meet changing business requirements.

Red Lion Graphite 12.1" HMI offers a UV-protected brilliant display with widescreen format 1280 × 800 resolution, making it easily viewable even in direct sunlight. Unlike other HMIs available in the market with 1000 nits or lower brightness, the new 12.1" outdoor Graphite model features a bright 1600 nits display, enabling customers to more easily monitor and control production equipment in any lighting condition.

Pierre de Giorgio, president at BlueBay Automation says: "We have used just about everyone's HMIs, and Graphite is by far the best in terms of appearance and functionality. It is the most feature-rich HMI that we have ever used, the graphics and resolution are amazing, and with Red Lion's Crimson software, the move to Graphite is seamless."

Graphite HMIs are available in eight different models, in sizes ranging from 7" to 15", with sleek bezels that provide a relatively large display given their overall dimension. The 12.1" joins the 7" and 10.4" HMIs as sunlight readable models. Combined with Graphite's rugged packaging, these models are well suited for harsh outdoor environments.

Jeff Thornton, Product Manager for Automation Products at Red Lion says: "More and more customers everyday rely upon Red Lion Graphite HMIs to get the job done in harsh environments around the globe and as their applications have become more complex, they have asked for bigger displays. Now we are able to give them the new larger 12.1" wide screen outdoor Graphite with all the same ruggedness they come to expect from a Red Lion HMI."

This new HMI is supported by Red Lion's award-winning Crimson 3.1 software, making it fast and easy to configure protocols, define data tags, set up sophisticated applications and create an attractive user interface. Crimson 3.1 also supports OPC UA Server and Client, MQTT connectors for Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Ignition Sparkplug and many other advanced features making it the preferred choice of many customers.
