From single to multi-point control, red lion has the right pid controller for any application. Red lion provides a wide range of proportional-integral- derivative (PID) Controllers that are rugged, reliable and easy to deploy. Our PID controllers offer industry-leading features and reliable performance designed for the most demanding applications.
Red Lion's CSMSTR modular controller allows for a custom controller to be configured for unique applications. The CSMSTR allows up to 16 slave modules to be connected and powered by a single master controller.
The modular controller provides a platform that can be updated to operate in a wide variety of applications by simply plugging in I/O modules that meet the requirements of the application. Upon installation of modules, the CSMSTR automatically identifies and addresses connected slave modules simplifying deployments and reducing technical requirements. The CSMSTR automatically configures modules if they are replaced, by storing configuration files of each associated module.
The CSMSTR Modular Controller provides two high-speed RS-232 serial ports, one RS-422/485 communication port and one 10/100BASE-T(X) Ethernet port for connection to PCs, PLCs, and scada systems. An extensive list of master and slave protocol drivers are available to allow the CSMSTR to share and exchange variable data with external devices.
The CSMSTR offers a virtual HMI feature allowing for monitoring and control of an HMI from any networked PC. The virtual HMI is available in two different resolutions (320 x 240 or 640 x 480). For higher performance applications, an expansion slot with increased SDRAM is available.
PAX2C PID controllers offer many features and performance capabilities that are not available on standard PID controllers. The programmable dual line display with units’ indication and bar graph display allows the user to customize the display to the application. Four programmable universal displays and seven programmable color zones provide operators a quick visual refer of application parameters.
PAX2C PID controllers offer a universal input that supports DC current, DC voltage, process signals, RTD, thermocouples and resistance. Additional FlexCard plug-in options include heater current monitor and/or second process Analog Input, which can be used for a secondary process display, remote setpoint or an additional PID Controller. Field installable on initial set-up or any time in the future, our option cards enable users to reduce costs by easily changing or adding functionality to meet industrial requirements without inventory stocking.
PAX2C PID controllers offer 16 alarms with boolean logic functionality. Each PAX2C can also be fitted with field-installable plug-in output cards that include setpoints, Analog output and communications options. Setpoint cards include relay, solid state or Triac outputs. The analog output Card is programmable for 4 to 20 mA or 0 to 10 VDC. Communication options include RS232, RS485, DeviceNet and Profibus. All the output cards allow users to configure the PAX2C for present applications, while providing easy upgrades for future needs.
PAX2C PID controllers are easily programmed using our Crimson® 2.0 software. Easy configuration is offered through an on-board USB connector that directly connects to a computer and simple check box programming enables users to saves time.
