Red Lion’s Graphical Panel Meter PM-50 empowers your customers to monitor their equipment and see their data like never before. This next-generation graphical panel meter not only enhances the appearance of any machine, it connects customers to the information that matters most, where and when they need it most.
Simply change out an old meter to leverage time and money-saving data collection—meaning that creating a smart plant floor has never been easier.
Smart-device connectivity frees critical data from the confines of the plant floor, enabling the remote gathering of workflow and process insights needed to increase production throughout. Instant notifications reduce downtime by keeping your customers on top of equipment needs. On the panel, a touchscreen interface loaded with vibrant, user-friendly graphics allows for more data with less effort. And a built-in set-up wizard and available mobile programming app means anyone can program the meter. With PM-50, the simplicity of a panel meter meets the power of a connected future.
PM-50 is not just a better panel meter. It’s the first device to make the power of Industry 4.0 truly accessible by anyone. Contact Red Lion today to learn more and experience the potential of your own smart factory floor.
Immediacy Means Efficiency
Having easy access to immediate data for efficient processes is no longer just a want, it’s practically a requirement. In order for your company to compete, you must improve reaction times to issues and demonstrate an increasingly productive work environment. For example, the PM-50 represents a new generation of panel meter. This starts with the display itself: instead of a numerical display, it’s a graphical representation of information, such as on the dashboard of your car. You can see more than just information, but what the information means, and react to it quicker. Think about your gas gauge—one glance and you know whether you’ll need to head to the gas station. It comes with multiple display options, providing operators with more data about each process, assisting in driving efficiency. The display can even change colors based on various needs so that workers can react accordingly, for example, a red panel indicating that immediate attention is required.
Set Yourself Up to Win
Panel meters should be evolving just like other automation devices, providing a clear and easy installation and upgrade path. As we mentioned earlier, this hasn’t really been the case—until now. With the PM-50, this starts at the installation of the device itself, as it was built to easily fit into where your old panel meter was. It offers multiple setup options, depending on your preference and comfort level with different applications: get started with a Setup Wizard on the meter, set up
via the Red Lion app, web browser using Wi-Fi or set up manually on the panel itself.
Once you’re up and running, the interface should remind you of devices you’ve used in the past, such as smartphones or iPads. Its intuitive nature and built-in Wi-Fi makes it easy to get data from the device to your smart device using the Red Lion app It also offers wired connectivity via Ethernet and Modbus. In addition, it offers wireless communication via Wi-Fi, meaning you won’t have to run additional wires to connect devices.
