Banner Engineering Wireless Vibration and Temperature Sensor Provides Superior Machine Monitoring
Banner Engineering Corp. Posted 06/09/2015
Minneapolis, MN — Banner Engineering introduces its wireless vibration and temperature sensor. Designed to effectively monitor machines for increases in vibration and temperature, the sensor measures RMS velocity in inches per second or millimeters per second, and temperature. This enables the sensor to identify machine problems before they become too severe and cause additional damage or result in unplanned down time.
The sensor is optimized to work with 1-wire serial radio devices, such as Banner’s wireless Q45VT Node, the P6 Performance Node and the MultiHop M-H6 radio. Operators can easily set vibration thresholds based on the ISO 10816 standard. When a threshold has been exceeded, the wireless node can provide local indication, send the signal to a central location, and send the vibration and temperature data to the gateway for collection and trending.
“Banner’s wireless sensor provides continuous vibration and temperature measurements to quickly detect any machine failure or potential problems,” said Scott Pritchard, Director of Wireless Global Sales, Banner Engineering. “This allows facility managers to reduce labor costs by eliminating manual checks and the risk of human error.
The wireless vibration and temperature sensor is ideal for a variety of machine monitoring applications, including motors, pumps, blowers and many other types of machines throughout a facility.
Manufactured with a robust zinc alloy housing, Banner’s wireless vibration and temperature sensor provides reliable performance in harsh environmental conditions. The sensor also offers multiples mounting options, including hex screw, epoxy, thermal transfer tape or magnetic bracket mount, to accommodate diverse applications.
Banner Engineering is a world-leading manufacturer of photoelectric and ultrasonic sensors, indicator lights, vision sensors and vision lighting, electronic machine safeguarding systems, wireless networks, fiber optic assemblies and precision measurement systems.
