New strain gauge modules and J1939 and CAN protocol sleds

08 March 2024

Red Lion has introduced strain gauge modules and J1939 and CAN protocol sleds designed to enhance and scale its FlexEdge Intelligent Edge Automation Platform.

The new strain gauge modules are easily installable and configurable and come in both SSR output and relay output options. Both offer single loop PID capabilities to monitor, measure, and control equipment.

Designed use in harsh environments, the modules accept signals from load cell, pressure, and torque bridge transducers. With a software-selectable 5 VDC or 10 VDC stable bridge excitation voltage, each strain gauge module can drive up to four 350W bridges. 

Alongside the new strain gauge capabilities, Red Lion has launched two field-installable sleds, serving either the J1939 or CAN protocol. They are said to provide a seamless interface between industrial equipment and the controller environment. The protocol sleds can be powered and configured directly from the FlexEdge DA50 or DA70 controller using Red Lion’s Crimson software.

The new modules make critical performance data easier to gather, more accurate, and actionable in real-time.
