MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS
G310
The chassis ground is not connected to signal common of the unit.
Maintaining isolation between earth ground and signal common is not required
to operate your unit. But, other equipment connected to this unit may require
isolation between signal common and earth ground. To maintain isolation
between signal common and earth ground care must be taken when connections
are made to the unit. For example, a power supply with isolation between its
signal common and earth ground must be used. Also, plugging in a USB cable
may connect signal common and earth ground.1
1. USB’s shield may be connected to earth ground at the host. USB’s shield
in turn may also be connected to signal common.
This operator interface is designed for through-panel mounting. A panel cutout diagram and a template are provided. Care should be taken to remove any
loose material from the mounting cut-out to prevent that material from falling
into the operator interface during installation. A gasket is provided to enable
sealing to NEMA 4X/IP66 specification. Install the 14 kep nuts provided and
tighten evenly for uniform gasket compression.
Note: Tightening the kep nuts beyond a maximum of 17 inch-pounds (1.92
N-m) may cause damage to the front panel.

POWER SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
14X ∅.188 (∅4.8)
The units require a 24 VDC power supply rated at 30 W. Your unit may draw
considerably less than the rated power depending upon the options being used.
As additional features are used your unit will draw increasing amounts of power.
Items that could cause increases in current are additional communications,
optional communications card, CompactFlash card, and other features
programmed through Crimson.
In any case, it is very important that the power supply is mounted correctly if
the unit is to operate reliably. Please take care to observe the following points:
– The power supply must be mounted close to the unit, with usually not
more than 6 feet (1.8 m) of cable between the supply and the operator
interface. Ideally, the shortest length possible should be used.
– The wire used to connect the operator interface’s power supply should
be at least 22-gage wire. If a longer cable run is used, a heavier gage
wire should be used. The routing of the cable should be kept away from
large contactors, inverters, and other devices which may generate
significant electrical noise.
– A power supply with an NEC Class 2 or Limited Power Source (LPS)
and SELV rating is to be used. This type of power supply provides
isolation to accessible circuits from hazardous voltage levels generated
by a mains power supply due to single faults. SELV is an acronym for
“safety extra-low voltage.” Safety extra-low voltage circuits shall
exhibit voltages safe to touch both under normal operating conditions
and after a single fault, such as a breakdown of a layer of basic
insulation or after the failure of a single component has occurred.

CONFIGURING A G310
G310
CABLES AND DRIVERS
The G310 is configured using Crimson software. Crimson is available as a free
download from Red Lion’s website, or it can be purchased on CD. Updates to
Crimson for new features and drivers are posted on the website as they become
available. By configuring the G310 using the latest version of Crimson, you are
assured that your unit has the most up to date feature set. Crimson software can
configure the G310 through the RS232 PGM port, USB port, or CompactFlash.
The USB port is connected using a standard USB cable with a Type B
connector. The driver needed to use the USB port will be installed with Crimson.
If this driver has not been installed, it can be downloaded from the website.
The RS232 PGM port uses a programming cable made by Red Lion to
connect to the DB9 COM port of your computer. If you choose to make your
own cable, use the “G310 Port Pin Out Diagram” for wiring information.
The CompactFlash can be used to program a G3 by placing a configuration
file and firmware on the CompactFlash card. The card is then inserted into the
target G3 and powered. Refer to the Crimson literature for more information on
the proper names and locations of the files.
Red Lion has a wide range of cables and drivers for use with many different
communication types. A list of these drivers and cables along with pin outs is
available from Red Lion’s website. New cables and drivers are added on a
regular basis. If making your own cable, refer to the “G310 Port Pin Outs” for
wiring information.
ETHERNET COMMUNICATIONS
Ethernet communications can be established at either 10 BASE-T or 100
BASE-TX. The G310 unit’s RJ45 jack is wired as a NIC (Network Interface
Card). For example, when wiring to a hub or switch use a straight-through cable,
but when connecting to another NIC use a crossover cable.

and a bi-color green/amber LED in the upper left. The LEDs represent the
following statuses.
The Crimson manual contains additional information on Ethernet
communications.
In order to access data from the CompactFlash card via the USB device port,
a driver must be installed on your computer. This driver is installed with
Crimson and is located in the folder C:\Program Files\Red Lion Controls\
Crimson 2.0\Device\ after Crimson is installed. This may have already been
accomplished if your G310 was configured using the USB port.
Once the driver is installed, connect the G310 to your PC with a USB cable,
and follow the “Mounting the CompactFlash” instructions found in the Crimson
user manual.
RS232 PORTS
The G310 has two individually isolated RS232 ports. There is the PGM port
and the COMMS port. Although only one of these ports can be used for
programming, both ports can be used for communications with a PLC.
The RS232 PGM port can be used for either master or slave protocols with
any G310 configuration.

Software/Unit Operation
CRIMSON SOFTWARE
KEYPAD
Crimson software is available as a free download from Red Lion’s website or
it can be purchased on a CD, see “Ordering Information” for part number. The
latest version of the software is always available from the website, and updating
your copy is free.
The G310 keypad consists of eight keys for on-screen menus.
TOUCHSCREEN
This operator interface utilizes a resistive analog touchscreen for user input.
The unit will only produce an audible tone (beep) when a touch on an active
touchscreen cell in sensed. The touchscreen is fully functional as soon as the
operator interface is initialized, and can be operated with gloved hands.
DISPLAY
This operator interface uses a liquid crystal display (LCD) for displaying text
and graphics. The G310C2 display utilizes a cold cathode fluorescent tube
(CCFL) for lighting the display. The G310S2 and G310R2 units use an LED
backlight. The backlight can be dimmed for low light conditions.
Display backlights have a limited lifetime. Backlight lifetime is based upon
the amount of time the display is turned on at full intensity. Turning the
backlight off when the display is not in use can extend the lifetime of your
backlight. This can be accomplished through the Crimson software when
configuring your unit.

1. The operator interface is shipped without a configuration. After
downloading a configuration, if the light remains in the flashing state
continuously, try cycling power. If the LED still continues to flash, try
downloading a configuration again.
2. Do not turn off power to the unit while this light is flickering. The unit
writes data in two minute intervals. Later Microsoft operating systems will
not lock the drive unless they need to write data; Windows 98 may lock
the drive any time it is mounted, thereby interfering with logging. Refer
to “Mounting the CompactFlash” in the Crimson User Manual.

BATTERY & TIME KEEPING
G310C2
WARNING - EXPLOSION HAZARD - THE AREA MUST BE KNOWN
TO BE NON-HAZARDOUS BEFORE SERVICING/ REPLACING
THE UNIT AND BEFORE INSTALLING OR REMOVING I/O WIRING
AND BATTERY.
WARNING - EXPLOSION HAZARD - DO NOT DISCONNECT
EQUIPMENT UNLESS POWER HAS BEEN DISCONNECTED
AND THE AREA IS KNOWN TO BE NON-HAZARDOUS.
A battery is used to keep time when the unit is without power. Typical
accuracy of the G310 time keeping is less than one minute per month drift. The
battery of a G310 unit does not affect the unit’s memory, all configurations and
data is stored in non-volatile memory.
BATTERY
CAUTION: RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
The inverter board, attached to the mounting plate, supplies the
high voltage to operate the backlight. Touching the inverter board
may result in injury to personnel.
CAUTION: The circuit board contains static sensitive
components. Before handling the operator interface without the
rear cover attached, discharge static charges from your body by
touching a grounded bare metal object. Ideally, handle the
operator interface at a static controlled clean workstation. Also,
do not touch the surface areas of the circuit board. Dirt, oil, or
other contaminants may adversely affect circuit operation.
INVERTER
To change the battery of a G310, remove power, cabling, and then the rear
cover of the unit. To remove the cover, remove the five screws designated by the
arrows on the rear of the unit. Then, by lifting the top side, hinge the cover, thus
providing clearance for the connectors on the bottom side of the PCB as shown
in the illustration below. Install in the reverse manner.
Remove the old battery* from the holder and replace with the new battery.
Replace the rear cover, cables, and re-apply power. Using Crimson or the unit’s
keypad, enter the correct time and date.
WARNING - EXPLOSION HAZARD BATTERIES MUST ONLY BE CHANGED IN AN
AREA KNOWN TO BE NON-HAZARDOUS.
