Red Lion Controls (York, PA) has announced the ZR Series Enhanced Data Station Plus and Modular Controller. Designed to act as the key connection point for industrial data collection and management, the ZR Series offers protocol conversion, data logging, and remote machine access—all at processing speeds six times faster than previous products, says the company. The ZR Series can simplify complex plant floor environments by allowing disparate devices to communicate using a 10/100 Base-TX Ethernet port that supports up to ten protocols simultaneously. The Ethernet port and three built-in serial ports leverage more than 250 communication drivers to convert protocols simultaneously and connect and collect data from virtually any PLC, drive or bar code scanner.
