Banner Engineering, Minneapolis, introduced its wireless vibration and temperature sensor, designed to effectively monitor machines for increases in vibration and temperature. The sensor measures temperature and RMS velocity in inches per second or millimeters per second. 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 provides local indication, sends the signal to a central location and sends the vibration and temperature data to the gateway for collection and trending.

Manufactured with a robust zinc alloy housing, this sensor offers multiples mounting options, including hex screw, epoxy, thermal transfer tape or magnetic bracket mount to accommodate diverse applications.
