Paul Bunnell from Red Lion Controls explains why they have developed the E3 series; “Customers today are demanding both more I/O connectivity and mixed I/O types – digital, analog or temperature – because of the variety of sensors and inputs needed to monitor complex systems. To keep industrial operations running smoothly, organizations require easy-to-configure equipment with multiple connectivity options and rugged enclosures that enable reliable performance in harsh environments.”

A wide range of connectivity options

High-density E3 I/O modules offer dual Ethernet ports and provide a variety of network modes including redundancy that support TCP/IP, ARP, UDP, ICMP, DHCP, HTTP, Modbus UDP/TCP Slave mode, Modbus UDP Master mode, Sixnet UDR UDP/TCP Slave mode and Sixnet UDR UDP Master mode. Additionally, built-in security enables permission-level access and firewall protection to help prevent unauthorized users. The modules also offer RS-485 serial connectivity and USB connectors for easy management of, and communication with, deployed assets.

Uncompromising performance

Providing uncompromising performance in harsh environments, Red Lion E3 I/O modules feature redundant 10-30 VDC power inputs (24 VDC nominal). Fast 1ms discrete response times to Ethernet queries for real-time monitoring and control capabilities.

Tough enough for any industrial environment

Available in DIN-rail and panel-mount form factors, E3 I/O modules feature rugged metal enclosures to support wide environmental tolerances and seamless integration into any industrial environment. Wide operating temperature (-40° to 75°C), high shock and vibration ratings coupled with industry certifications that include UL Class I, Division 2 listing, ATEX* and IECEx* approvals make each module safe for use with industrial control equipment in hazardous locations and with built-in self-resetting fuses, these I/O modules will provide years of reliable operation.

Programmed with free Crimson Software

Red Lion’s powerful Crimson® 3.0 software  is a programming platform that unlocks the power of E3 I/O modules with simple drag-and-drop, point-and-click configuration. And unlike competitive I/O modules that charge extra for cumbersome software, Crimson software is included with each E3 I/O module.
