Wireless vibration and temperature sensor

August 2015 Industrial Wireless

Banner Engineering now offers a wireless vibration and temperature sensor; designed to monitor machines for increases in vibration and temperature, the sensor measures RMS velocity and temperature. This enables identification of machine problems before they become too severe and cause additional damage or result in unplanned down time.

The sensor is optimised 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 detect any machine failure or potential problems,” said Scott Pritchard, director of wireless global sales at Banner Engineering. “This allows facility managers to reduce labour 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.”

Protected by a robust zinc alloy housing, the sensor provides reliable performance in harsh environmental conditions. It also offers multiple mounting options, including hex screw, epoxy, thermal transfer tape or magnetic bracket mount, to accommodate diverse applications.
