Red Lion adds DNP3 support to Graphite HMI platform

Communications company Red Lion Controls has enhanced its rugged Graphite platform communication capabilities with the addition of DNP3 network support, the company said.

Working with Graphite Human Machine Interface (HMI) operator panels and core controllers, this communication protocol enables powerful monitoring and control to process automation equipment that requires DNP3 support.

Native support for the DNP3 network protocol on the Graphite platform creates a solution that enables seamless communication between DNP3 devices and other equipment without the need for third-party protocol converters.

Red Lion´s Graphite HMIs and controllers includesoftware for easy drag-and-drop configuration as well as offering a built-in web server that enables users to monitor and control applications via PCs, tablets or smartphones.

Red Lion has been delivering solutions for over 40 years. It is part of Spectris plc, the productivity-enhancing instrumentation and controls company.
