The Crimson 3.0 configuration software enables all N-Tron and Sixnet industrial Ethernet switches to be monitored from any locally-mounted Red Lion G3 operator interface. Thus, the operator interfaces can be used as visible dashboards to monitor, display, log and alert on network status received from N-Tron and Sixnet industrial Ethernet switches.
You can monitor a number of different network parameters – including data collisions, received packets, dropped packets, alignment errors and more – from one dashboard. For Sixnet switches, monitoring is done through Modbus. Advanced data logging features offer users the ability to collect and review network performance history. Email and SMS notification is also available to alert remote personal of network issues.
