Simplifying equipment monitoring and enabling predictive maintenance, a line of monitoring devices—which include 2 customizable and scalable systems—let users immediately begin capturing data from sensors by attaching them to existing assets, such as conveyor systems, industrial fans, pumps, electric motors, compressed air systems, and dust-collection units.
The core of each system is a compact, centralized device called a monitoring gateway, which is placed on or near machine assets.
The Asset Monitoring Gateway with SNAP ID has a touchscreen display for local viewing of machine performance, can connect up to 20 sensors via wires, and monitors 1 or multiple nearby pieces of equipment.
Facilities with many pieces of equipment can use the Asset Monitoring Gateway with BANNER CLOUD ID, which can receive data from up to 40 wireless sensor nodes spread across many assets.
Each system is designed to be deployed quickly without programming and has automatic recognition of compatible sensors or sensor nodes. These sensors and sensor nodes are specialized to gather real-time measurements of current, pressure, temperature, vibration, tank level, dew point, or other relevant variables.
Both monitoring gateways offer cellular or Ethernet connectivity and streamlined integration with Banner Cloud Data Services (Banner CDS). Customizable dashboards in Banner CDS provide global visibility into machine health and performance and deliver condition-based text and email alerts.
To help users customize a monitoring solution package, Banner provides a web-based Bundle Builder tool that allows users to select a monitoring gateway, wired sensors or wireless sensor nodes, compatible mounting brackets, and connectivity components.
