Red Lion’s Data Station protocol converter and data acquisition system is designed to act as a nexus for next-generation industrial data collection and management. Built-in MQTT connectors accelerate IIoT projects with point & click simplicity, while embedded OPC UA server functionality eliminates the need for separate system hardware to gather and exchange data with upstream systems. The optional SQL queries capability simplifies activities like quality control, production scheduling, and batch and recipe management.
Choose the Best Systems for Your Application
With native support for over 300 different industrial protocols, the Data Station is the most versatile, easy-to-use communication platform available today. It seamlessly manages multi-vendor applications and provides the ability to network-enable existing, orphaned equipment. Select the PLCs, drives, motion controllers or PID controllers that work best for a given application, regardless of vendor, and manage everything from one Red Lion Data Station.
Streamline Data Transfer to Management and Enterprise Systems
An embedded OPC UA server eliminates the need for additional intermediate server hardware. Users can enable the OPC UA server feature with a simple Yes/No selection and select any data tag to make it available to OPC UA clients. Dead bands can be added to any tag to reduce communications overhead.
Easily Integrate Multi-Generational Systems into your IIoT Strategy
Simplify communication between disparate serial, Ethernet and fieldbus devices orphaned by incompatible communications standards with Crimson’s intuitive point-and-click user interface. Build on-premise or cloud-based IIoT connectivity directly into any equipment using the DA10D or DA30D Data Station and Crimson’s easy-to-follow cloud connector services editor.
