Banner SmartSolutions Expansion Kit

Banner SmartSolutions Expansion Kit

Banner’s SmartSolutions Expansion Kit is a predictive maintenance solution that allows asset and process managers to expand monitoring systems by adding up to 40 sensors. The kit gathers data from any point in production and helps handle challenges via online dashboard and visualization tools. The software automatically generates configurable alarm thresholds and stores historical data, allowing users to analyze machine performance over time and make better-informed decisions.

Key Benefits

EXPAND YOUR PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE SOLUTIONS WITH CONFIDENCE

With Banner’s Expansion Kit, facilities can now build on the foundation of their SmartSolutions Starter Kit or build a comprehensive system right from the beginning. The expansion kit lets you effortlessly grow your Industrial IoT solution by adding a variety of sensors. Cost-effective and easy to deploy, these kits let users collect critical data and improve value on the first day.

MAKE BETTER, DATA-DRIVEN DECISIONS

The expansion kit uses Banner’s Cloud Data Services to access data from each device. Users can solve real facility challenges with insights gleaned from the software’s analytic and visualization tools. The software has embedded machine learning that can baseline vibration data and report the health of rotating machines. Users can make better, data-driven decisions to track and store data and analyze performance trends over time. Each SmartSolutions Expansion Kit includes a prepaid 90-day trial of the Banner Cloud Data Services, which provides instant visibility into operations for plant management and maintenance personnel.

GET UP AND RUNNING QUICKLY

Expand end-to-end monitoring solutions in a few simple steps. Simply apply power, bind sensors to the gateway, and install new sensors on equipment to start pushing data to the cloud. Dashboard tools will start reporting the data from your new sensors in less than 30 minutes from installation. Each SmartSolutions Expansion Kit comes with your choice of a DXM700, DXM1200, or DXM1200E controller for use in most environments. Kits come preconfigured to communicate via Ethernet or Cellular Data Services can be enabled within minutes using the onboard display and embedded modem.

MAXIMIZE UPTIME AND INCREASE EFFICIENCY

Supplying and analyzing data for predictive maintenance is a key capability of SmartSolutions Kits. The Banner Cloud Data Services platform allows users to access, store, protect, and export critical data collected by Banner’s wired and wireless sensors. But most importantly, device data is actionable, making it easy to identify trends, predict maintenance needs, avoid costly equipment failures, and prevent unplanned downtime.

TWO NEW SENSORS ARE AVAILABLE FOR USE WITH SMART SOLUTIONS EXPANSION KITS

In conjunction with the expansion kit, Banner released two new Q45 Sensors. With a Dual Temperature Probe and a Current Transformer node, these new model types can handle new classes of applications. Sensors are combined with reliable, field-proven wireless architecture, eliminating the need to order multiple components.

WIRELESS Q45CT CURRENT TRANSFORMER NODE

The Wireless Q45CT Current Transformer Node is an industrial-grade battery-powered device with two transformers for a high or low current input that produces a proportional signal for measuring and monitoring power usage. The node delivers factory automation and Industrial IoT solutions for a range of applications requiring current monitoring, such as Motor Load, Compressor Failure, Energy Use, and On/Off state.

WIRELESS Q45DT DUAL THERMISTOR SENSOR PROBE

The Wireless Q45DT Dual Thermistor Sensor Probe tracks values from separate thermistors and the differential between them. The industrial-grade battery-powered device can be used to transmit temperature values to a controller for remote monitoring of critical systems. It measures building and control processes easily, and it can provide the temperature data needed to make critical shutdown decisions.

Applications

SmartSolutions Expansion Kits enable remote condition monitoring of virtually every critical system, piece of equipment, or asset in a facility, including:

  • Motors, fans, pumps, and other rotating assets
  • Dry and wet asset tanks
  • Dry bulk storage, food processing, and refrigerated storerooms
  • Pneumatic, hydraulic, fluid, and HVAC systems
