Red Lion’s FlexEdge Platform is now readily scalable

Red Lion says its FlexEdge Intelligent Edge Automation Platform is now readily scalable with strain gauge modules and J1939 and CAN protocol sleds.

The new strain gauge modules are easily installable and configurable and come in both SSR output and relay output options. Both offer single loop PID capabilities to monitor, measure, and control equipment.

Designed to thrive in harsh environments, the modules accept signals from load cell, pressure, and torque bridge transducers. With a software-selectable 5 V DC or 10 V DC stable bridge excitation voltage, each strain gauge module can drive up to four 350W bridges. The inputs are also software selectable for low level inputs at 20 mV, 33 mV, and 200 mV full scale.

Alongside the new strain gauge capabilities, Red Lion launched two field-installable sleds, serving either the J1939 or CAN protocol. Providing a seamless interface between industrial equipment and the controller environment, the protocol sleds can be powered and configured directly from the FlexEdge DA50 or DA70 controller using Red Lions Crimson software.

The new modules make critical performance data easier to gather, more accurate, and actionable in real time. This lets equipment operators and business leaders drive more value out of industrial data. Easy-to-use installation and configuration save time, boost operational performance, improve plant efficiency and minimise downtime.
