Red Lion’s FlexEdge Intelligent Edge Automation Platform brings industrial data together as never before to transform edge computing. FlexEdge provides a scalable solution to integrate complex multi-vendor environments into digital transformation strategies, while providing a futureproof solution for changing application needs.

One Platform. Limitless Potential.

Avoid costly and complex rip-and-replace scenarios by leveraging the FlexEdge sled architecture, designed to enable organizations to leverage new communications technologies as they become available.

Backward Compatible. Forward Thinking.

Built with advanced networking capabilities at the core, providing powerful and secure networking to any industrial application is easy. Powered by Crimson® 3.2, FlexEdge enables connectivity to virtually anything in your system with point-and-click simplicity. And the new equipment working with the existing infrastructure means capital budgets are kept in check.

Plug and play. And plug. And play.

The FlexEdge form factor adapts as applications needs change; effortlessly scale by adding up to ten hot-swappable I/O or PID modules. On-device wiring diagrams and removable wire clamp screw terminal blocks ease installation, while the at-a-glance module status indicator and individual channel LEDs improve troubleshooting and system testing.

Software Defined Gateway. Field Upgradable.

Select the right FlexEdge software functionality for the application. Select from Networking Gateway, Protocol Gateway, Advanced IIoT Gateway, or an Automation Controller with IEC 61131 capabilities. If the application changes, simply upgrade the gateway to meet the applications requirements, it’s that easy. Reduce or eliminate costly equipment changes as simply as pushing new software.

Rugged Outside. Reliable Inside.

Rugged construction, a wide operating temperature range, industrial certifications and Red Lion’s Crimson® software provide a dependable solution for control, networking and data visualization in even the harshest environments.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
