The company says that when added to Graphite HMI operator panels, the CAN and J1939 modules remove the need for external communication gateways, saving time and money by simplifying the programming and installation costs.

Jeff Thornton, director of product management, says: "From factories to extreme remote locations, Red Lion's Graphite series allows customers to easily connect, monitor and control processes across a broad range of industries. With this expansion, we’re adding a new chapter of modular functionality to our Graphite offering. Our CAN and J1939 modules give customers a wider range of integrated communication solutions to address varying requirements both today and tomorrow.”
