As of early September this year, Red Lion Controls announced updates to their Crimson development environment, including dynamic filtering of SQL queries and the release of a German language version of their award-winning software.
The increase in global use of Crimson-based products is a testament Crimson’s ability to play a key part in delivering on the promise of the IIoT. “We’re pleased to now offer a localized user experience for our German-speaking customers who are leveraging Crimson as part of their own Industrie 4.0 initiatives,” said Kevin Good, VP of Sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa.
In an effort to further optimize data intelligence, the latest version of Crimson has the ability to use expressions in filters for SQL queries. This allows operators to pull a subset of data from a SQL database based on dynamic search criteria. This new feature can deliver greater efficiencies and process control, shortening response time by accessing the right data faster – which is critical when troubleshooting production or operations workflow.
“This can dramatically improve an operator’s ability to make process improvement decisions in real-time.” said Jeff Thornton, product manager for automation products at Red Lion Controls.
