Red Lion SixTRAK line designed for extreme environments.
Red Lion Controls has expanded its SixTRAK line of industrial RTUs with the launch of STIPm-8460, which uses an IEC61131-3 compliant editor and runtime engine. Designed for harsh and hazardous locations, the RTU has UL Class I, Div 2 certification, an ABS listing, and an operating temperature range of -40°C to 70°C. The company’s Red Lion Workbench provides customized control, standard language support, debugging/monitoring tools, project automation, and controller redundancy. The unit can be configured using Red Lion’s EtherTRAK-2 I/O modules. The ST-IPm-8460 also offers dual power inputs and support for redundant Ethernet networks.
