Wireless kit simplifies rotating equipment monitoring

January 2019 Industrial Wireless

Banner’s new Wireless Solutions Kit for vibration monitoring is a fully integrated and easy-to-use solution for monitoring assets with rotating motion. It is designed to make it easy for users of any experience level to setup a wireless network, establish performance baselines and thresholds, and collect data from motors, fans, pumps, compressors, and similar equipment.

Key benefits

Reduce downtime and increase productivity: avoid unexpected downtime and make more informed decisions about maintenance schedules by detecting problems early before a failure can occur.

Simple setup: plug in the box, bind the nodes through the HMI screen, install vibration sensors and nodes on the equipment, and start collecting data. Performance baselines and thresholds are automatically generated and no programming is required.

Visualise data and alarms: HMI clearly displays alarms and graphs of raw vibration data along with baseline, warning and alarm values.

Local and remote monitoring: access raw data right on the HMI or via the cloud from any network accessible location.

Scalable solution: monitor and collect data from up to 16 assets.

Wireless Solutions Kits for vibration monitoring can be used with virtually any machine with rotating motion. These kits help users to:

• Identify machine performance issues caused by misalignment, unbalance, bearing failures, pump cavitation, blade damage, etc.

• Identify equipment requiring full spectrum analysis.

• Establish more strategic scheduling of equipment maintenance www.youtube.com/watch?v=id0-qrhviso.
