Banner Engineering Wireless Vibration and Temperature Sensor Provides Superior Machine Monitoring

Designed to effectively monitor machines for increases in vibration and temperature.

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.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
