Red Lion Controls SQL Sync for Crimson 3.0 Software

Red Lion announces the release of SQL Sync – an exciting new feature of Crimson 3.0. The SQL Sync service allows you to send your logged data directly to a Microsoft® SQL Server® database, without having to use third-party software or custom script.

Red Lion’s G3 series HMI has become the industry solution for machine data management, providing multiple protocol conversion, remote monitoring and control via the embedded web server, and the ability to log data, events and user activity. Now, with SQL Sync, users can have their logged data automatically synchronized with SQL Server, where it can be used for inventory control, production scheduling, quality improvement initiatives and more.

SQL Sync is available on the 8”, 10” and 15” G3 series HMI. These models offer dual Ethernet, reliably bridging the gap between automation and IT. The engineer can assign a fixed IP address to the port connected to his PLCs, drives, etc., while allowing the IT personnel to either pick their own IP address, or select DHCP, to configure the enterprise port.
