Stratus Connect

Overview

The StratusConnect™ MC Gateway from Red Lion Controls is an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-ready product that enables organizations to seamlessly connect disparate equipment – across multi-vendor environments – to the cloud. Whether devices are from ABB, Mitsubishi, Rockwell, Schneider Electric, Siemens or other vendors, our StratusConnect™ MC Gateway combines built-in protocol conversion with an embedded Cumulocity agent to quickly connect devices to the cloud and monitor data within minutes and not days.
