Red Lion announces support of Banner Engineering’s iVu® Plus TG vision sensors via their G3 series HMI, Modular Controller and Data Station Plus. The new iVu Image driver, available in Crimson 3.0’s most recent release, joins a list of over 200 serial and Ethernet communications drivers included with Red Lion’s acclaimed programming software.
This new image driver affords the ability to display the image output from the Banner iVu Plus TG on Red Lion’s 8”, 10” and 15” G3 series HMIs, allowing these touchscreens to be used for commissioning and operation of Banner’s latest generation of vision sensor. With multiple protocol support built into every Red Lion interface product, a second protocol can be chosen to acquire data from the iVu Plus TG. Once collected, the G3 series HMI, Modular Controller or Data Station Plus can convert the data to a different protocol so that the iVu can be integrated with virtually any PLC, PC or SCADA system. The data may also be recorded in IT-friendly CSV file format for later review, using the built-in data logging facilities.
