Red Lion Controls has announced native tag support of Allen Bradley’s Logix series PLCs. This means that users can easily integrate Red Lion’s G3 series HMI, modular controller and data station products with the ControlLogix and CompactLogix PLCs, via serial port or Ethernet. The tags are exported as a CSV file from Allen Bradley’s RSLogix 5000 software, and then imported into Red Lion’s Crimson 2.0 software. A simple click of a button automatically creates matching tags within Crimson. A tool is provided that allows PLC tags to be generated within Crimson, thus avoiding the import process for the addition of subsequent PLC tags. Red Lion Controls
