February 6, 2018 – Red Lion Controls announced the availability of firmware 4.28 for its family of RAM industrial routers and cellular RTUs, increasing the number of IIoT platforms available for integration. The upgrade features connectivity to Ignition by Inductive Automation, an industrial application platform for SCADA and IIoT solutions, via the industry-standard Sparkplug MQTT profile, as well as enhancements to RAMQTT, Red Lion’s MQTT client. RAMQTT is designed to simplify implementations with pre-configured profiles for AT&T M2X, Amazon AWS IoT, Cumulocity, Microsoft Azure, Nokia Impact, and Telenor Connexion.
RAM RTUs provide access to twelve different IIoT platforms, selected from a drop-down menu or accessible via Software Development Kit (SDK). This makes it possible to connect, monitor and control systems and processes. RAMQTT works to reduce deployment and configuration complexities involved with IoT integrations, allowing users to be up and running in less than two minutes per device.
Red Lion’s RAM products are available with serial and Ethernet ports and optional I/O and Wi-Fi and can additionally communicate with Modbus & DNP3 enabled equipment to securely monitor and control remote devices over 4G LTE cellular networks.
In addition, RAM RTUs are industrially hardened to operate in harsh environments. With a -40 to 75°C operating temperature range, and high shock and vibration ratings, RAM RTUs can be deployed to remotely monitor locations, without the need for site visits.
