Red Lion Controls expands its SixTrak line of industrial remote terminal units (RTU) with the launch of the ST-IPm-8460, which operates on the Red Lion Workbench platform with an IEC61131-3-compliant editor and runtime engine. Red Lion says it designed the new RTU for applications that need increased processing and communication speed and storage, while maintaining the flexibility and reliability that customers require and expect from Red Lion to monitor and control equipment. The ST-IPm-8460 has achieved UL Class I, Div 2 certification and an ABS listing, while the construction supports operating temperatures from -40°C to 70°C, allowing the RTU to operate in harsh and hazardous locations.

The company says the combination of ST-IPm-8460 and Red Lion Workbench can support large, complex projects across multiple devices. Red Lion Workbench provides customized control, standard language support, debugging and monitoring tools, project automation and controller redundancy. The ST-IPm-8460, for its part, is available for configuration using Red Lion’s EtherTrak-2 I/O modules to scale its functionality to the user’s application.

Red Lion’s ST-IPm-8460 also offers private labeling as well as dual power inputs and support for redundant Ethernet networks to increase uptime, while a multitude of communication ports and supported protocols enable connectivity to a variety of field devices.
