Banner Engineering introduces CM Series Condition Monitoring Nodes
Monitor electric motors on three critical indicators of performance and health without the hassle and expense of installing, altering, or expanding wired infrastructure to connect devices. The CM Series condition monitoring node communicates vibration, temperature, and current draw data from a VT1 sensor and a current transformer to a Performance Series Gateway or DXM wireless controller over a secure, robust Sure Cross wireless network.
ONE EASY-TO-DEPLOY WIRELESS DEVICE
The CM Series condition monitoring node combines a wireless radio, antenna, and battery power supply in one compact and easy to deploy wireless device. Included with the node is a 20 amp and a 150 amp current transformer. The node comes preconfigured and prewired to work with the current transformer and a VT1 vibration and temperature sensor: simply connect one or both devices and begin communicating.
EASY-TO-USE TOOLS TO MAKE BETTER DECISIONS
Use CM Series condition monitoring nodes with our Wireless Solutions Kit for vibration and current monitoring for an easy-to-deploy IIoT solution. Or create your own IIoT solution using the condition monitoring nodes, a DXM Series wireless controller, and our Connected Data Solutions cloud software. These solutions make it easy to access and analyze data from each node in the network, establish performance baselines and thresholds, identify trends and issues, and make better decisions.
ACCESS MORE HEALTH AND PERFORMANCE DATA
The CM node makes condition monitoring simple by measuring vibration and current with a single wireless communication device. Users can monitor the general health and performance of their equipment as well as specific components, such as motor bearings, brushes, and windings. The node can also be used to verify that equipment is ON or OFF, track energy use, and identify power surges.
The CM Series node can be used to monitor the current draw and vibration of machines in a wide range of applications to:
- Expose machine performance issues
- Identify equipment requiring full spectrum analysis
- Establish more strategic scheduling of equipment maintenance
