Further increasing the communications capabilities of the company’s advanced family of G3 operator interfaces, the G3MPI option card from Red Lion Controls enables the HMIs to communicate with Siemens' devices that support the MPI protocol, without requiring the use of a converter cable. The card is simply added to the G3 HMI’s expansion slot during installation. In addition to its powerful protocol conversion facility, the card’s three serial ports and a multiple-protocol Ethernet port, allows users to realize complete system integration. Ranging from versatile advanced models to value-based panels for less demanding applications, the company’s G3 operator interface panels provide an intuitive interface for connected devices. With the most on-board communications ports of any HMI, G3 operator interface panels allow users to monitor, control or acquire data from 13 or more devices simultaneously. Featuring integrated Ethernet and a built-in web server and gateway, these operator interface panels facilitate remote monitoring, operation and diagnostics.
