Increasing demands for higher quality production coupled with changing requirements has led to humans interfacing directly with machines across many industries. As a result, the plant automation industry is experiencing paradigm change and advanced products like the new Graphite™ HMI series from Red Lion Controls help support evolving needs and growing competition.

Red Lion Controls is a leading industrial automation and networking company that is recognized for its quality products, services and customer centric approach. Red Lion shared its view in an interview by Plant Automation Technology with Mr. Naveen Kumar Mote, General Manager of India. ”When Red Lion was founded over 40 years ago, it started with sensors and evolved to counters and panel meters,” said Mr. Mote. “Over time, driven by customer demand and available technology, the company broadened our product portfolio to include HMI displays, sophisticated protocol converters, Ethernet switches and cellular M2M routers.”

Today Red Lion provides industrial automation and networking solutions that enable customers to connect, monitor and control across a broad range of industries.

While speaking on Red Lion’s basic business principles, Mr. Mote said that company’s focus in India is primarily on verticals that include factory automation, power, oil and gas. By providing high-quality products for industrial environments, we deliver reliable solutions that meet the demands of industrial customers that face the harshest of environments. Red Lion follows core business principles and sales best practices to develop and maintain channel partner and strategic alliance relationships.

Speaking on the industry standards that influenced Red Lion in past and continue to be important, Mr. Mote said that the company started off in industrial automation (sensors, counters, panel meters, HMI displays, protocol converters) and with the acquisitions of N-Tron and Sixnet, Red Lion’s focus has extended to also include networking (Ethernet switches and cellular M2M routers). As President Mike Granby states on Red Lion’s better. together site, “We are currently in the middle of exciting changes, as we take steps towards bringing N-Tron and Sixnet together as part of a bigger, better Red Lion.”

This is important because to meet customer demand, companies need to be dynamically equipped to serve their needs. In this regard, Mr. Mote’s comments, “the trends that we see revolve around ways for customers to seamlessly integrate technologies with existing equipment. They need ways to easily upgrade existing infrastructures without starting from scratch. By using industrial automation and networking solutions from Red Lion, customers are able to connect heterogeneous products to monitor and control assets in an affordable way.”

In addition, customers are demanding more innovative products that help meet industrial requirements. Red Lion’s recent release of Graphite advanced operator panels introduces the industry’s first rugged HMI solution. With all cast-aluminum construction, Graphite combines a wide range of flexible plug-in modules with protocol conversion, data logging and web-based monitoring and control. Graphite’s plug-in modules enable customers to easily create a solution for today, with an option to expand to meet changing business requirements. Further, organizations will realize a reduction in development and commissioning times over traditional systems that use an HMI paired with separate I/O, PLCs and other controllers.
