Universal Signal Conditioners

The easily programmable IAMS signal conditioner can do it all. Red Lion’s new universal signal conditioners accept voltage, current, RTD, thermocouples, linear resistance, potentiometers, and process signals. The unit provides 3-way isolation, while the output can be a retransmitted voltage or current signal. 

The IAMS has over 100 input to output combinations and three models are available. The setpoint model (IAMS0010) allows dual setpoint capability through dual Form A relays. The analog model (IAMS0001) provides a retransmitted analog signal. A third model (IAMS0011) provides both an analog output and relay control. The IAMS has a universal power supply 21.6 to 253 VAC / 12.2 to 300 VDC.

To program the unit, add the detachable module (PGMMOD00), which easily connects to the front of the IAMS. For applications requiring more than one IAMS, only one module is needed. The PGMM0D00 can store programming from one unit and load it to another reducing set-up time. When the programming module is not being used to enter or adjust programming, it can indicate input parameters. The display can be configured in seven different languages. 

USB Cards Now Available for Panel Meters

There is no faster way to program panel meters than with Red Lion’s free Crimson® software. Now it’s even easier with the release of USB programming cards for the CUB5 and PAX® meters. These programming cards allow quick connection to almost any computer without the use of serial converters or other external devices. With one of these option cards installed, you can effortlessly set-up the meter and even store the program for later use. Just simply plug-and-play. 

Crimson’s menu style programming easily guides you through all parameters of the meter set-up. Once completed, just download the configuration to the meter and save the file for future reference.

A CUB5 or PAX programming kit is also available. The kit comes complete with the appropriate USB card, USB connecting cable and the latest version of Crimson software.

Red Lion Panel Meters Chosen #1 for Eighth Straight Year

The readers of Control Design magazine have again selected Red Lion as their number one choice in panel meters for the eighth consecutive year. Red Lion has won the panel meter category of the Reader’s Choice Award every year since 2001, the first year the award was given. The meters won by a resounding margin, receiving more than twice as many votes as the closest competition.

The balloting for this survey went to machine builders and systems integrators who reported to Control Design that they had the authority to specify, recommend, or purchase industrial automation and control products for industrial machines. Vendors were not included in the balloting, and any known responses from vendors were not counted. The voting was completely un-aided, therefore no lists of vendors or product brands were provided. Readers were simply asked which was the one best company for products in the panel meter category.

In addition to the panel meter category, Red Lion also received recognition in the loop controller category and was voted as having very good to excellent service and support.
