YORK, PA ‚â€” Red Lion Controls, Inc. announces the Plant Floor Marquee (PFM) series of highly visible, multi-color LED displays. Optimized for communicating critical machine status and production data instantly across the plant floor, the largest PFM is easily readable at distances up to 600 feet (182 meters). The PFM series features a graphical 3-color display‚â€”available in four sizes‚â€”that can convey production targets, machine faults and other custom messages.
By delivering real-time updates, the PFM keeps personnel informed of production trends and status, improving productivity. It can also be programmed to display machine stoppages, allowing any equipment failures to be quickly addressed‚â€”reducing downtime.
The PFM takes advantage of the powerful features of a Red Lion G3 series HMI, Data Station‚Â® Plus or Modular Controller as a host device to display the text and graphics on the PFM. Red Lion‚â€™s host devices and free Crimson‚Â® software allow the PFM to receive message data from virtually any device on the factory floor, supporting over 170 different protocols and the ability to send and receive data from seven or more device types simultaneously.
