YORK, Pa. – Red Lion Controls, the global experts in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation and networking, today announced that its N-Tron series NT24k managed Gigabit Ethernet switches were awarded the Golden Mousetrap for Industrial Networking Technologies in the Automation and Control category.

The awards, presented by Design News, celebrate the companies, products and people who are energizing North American design, engineering and manufacturing.

"This award further validates Red Lion's long history of commitment to superior innovation and engineering," said Mike Granby, president of Red Lion Controls. "Industrial Ethernet switches are a key component in the move to the connected world, and industrially fluent and modular products like our NT24k series continue to be at the forefront of this transformation."

Available in rackmount and DIN rail models, Red Lion's NT24k switches provide modular versatility to customers through hot-swappable copper and fiber Fast Ethernet and Gigabit connectivity options. With all-Gigabit capability and a diverse array of connectivity options, the NT24k switches deliver configuration flexibility that meets industrial networking requirements across industries such as factory automation, utilities, video surveillance, security, transportation and alternative energy. Previously, the NT24k won the Automation World"First Team Supplier" Award and the Control Engineering China "Best Product of the Year" award in the Networking Communications category.

"The NT24k has been an extremely successful product in our industrial networking portfolio," said Diane Davis, director of Ethernet networking at Red Lion Controls. "The NT24k's modular versatility and plug and play port configuration features are key benefits, which allow customers in different industries to easily customize a solution to fit specific environment requirements, while taking advantage of Gigabit speeds, high port densities and a full range of management features."

The editorial staff at Design News judged the many Golden Mousetrap entries across four categories to determine the products most deserving to be finalists. The editorial team then shared the finalist entries with the publication's distinguished Advisory Board to choose the winners, who were named in a ceremony earlier this month in Anaheim, Calif.
