The Red Lion G3 Series of HMIs conveniently allows machine operators to deliver specific vision sensor controls while seeing exact images of the entire sensing area on the unit’s display. The G3 Series features a built-in image driver that allows the integration of multiple Banner vision sensors. With its multiple-protocol Ethernet port, the G3 can connect to the vision sensor, PLCs and PCs simultaneously.A data logger logs data at user-programmable rates, with the date and time automatically recorded. A removable CompactFlash memory card stores data into “IT-ready” CSV files that are compatible with applications such as Microsoft Excel and can be downloaded remotely or synchronized with an FTP server. With the G3’s inspection file transfer capability, users are able to upload or download any inspection file they choose from the CompactFlash card to the PresencePLUS sensor. G3 models come standard with three serial ports or up to five with an optional expansion card. A built-in Ethernet port is also included and capable of running up to four protocols.
