What is the Red Lion FlexEdge™ Intelligent Edge Automation Platform?
FlexEdge™ is an automation platform that allows businesses to bring their industrial data together more effectively than ever before. Powered by Crimson® 3.2, FlexEdge is a dependable solution for control, networking, and data visualisation wherever businesses find themselves.
One Platform. Limitless Potential
Industrial technology moves quickly, especially when it comes to communication. FlexEdge is designed in a way that organisations can leverage new communications technologies in tandem with the platform as and when they become available. As regulatory demands increase in the industry, this helps to avoid costly rip-and-replace scenarios. Without the need to constantly invest in new hardware, FlexEdge keeps capital budgets in check.
As operational needs change, smart factories require a solution that is able to keep up. Unlike fixed-function devices, FlexEdge does not have to ‘learn’ multiple products or systems. Users can add up to 10 hot-swappable I/O modules that provide high-density analogue, discrete, PID, relay and SSR options. This helps to improve the efficiency and productivity of pumps, optimising their performance through the use of real-time information.
Rugged Outside, Resilient Inside
With companies embarking on projects in increasingly harsh environments, the need for reliable technology has become paramount. FlexEdge is able to work efficiently in temperatures ranging from -40°C to 75°C giving it the ability to operate almost anywhere in the world. FlexEdge’s rugged design and hazardous location ratings (UL Class 1, Division 2, and ATEX/IECEx) means that buyers can be certain it will withstand in any scenario.
