Wireless vibration and temperature sensor for machine monitoring
Banner Engineering’s wireless vibration and temperature sensor is designed to 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 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. The sensor is optimized to work with 1-wire serial radio devices and operators can 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. The sensor also offers multiples mounting options, including hex screw, epoxy, thermal transfer tape or magnetic bracket mount, to accommodate diverse applications.
