Banner Engineering has introduced a family of products for industrial automation that simplifies equipment monitoring, enabling predictive maintenance, cost reduction, and improved uptime.
These products consist of two customisable and scalable systems designed to capture data from sensors attached to manufacturing assets, such as conveyor systems, pumps, and more. Banner Monitoring Solutions ensure efficient asset operation, prevent unplanned downtime, and maintain consistent high-quality output.
Each system features a central monitoring gateway placed near machine assets. The Asset Monitoring Gateway with SNAP ID offers a touchscreen display for local performance viewing, connecting to up to 20 sensors. For facilities with multiple pieces of equipment, the Asset Monitoring Gateway with BANNER CLOUD ID receives data from up to 40 wireless sensor nodes.
Both systems are quick to deploy without programming, offering compatibility with specialised sensors for real-time data like current, pressure, temperature, and more.
Luke Karnas, Sr. Director of Automation Solutions at Banner Engineering, emphasises the ease and affordability of these monitoring systems for predictive maintenance. The gateways support cellular or Ethernet connectivity and integrate seamlessly with Banner Cloud Data Services (Banner CDS), providing customisable dashboards and condition-based alerts.
Banner provides a web-based Bundle Builder tool for users to customise their monitoring solution package, with application engineers available for assistance.
