DX81 SureCross Wireless NetworkBanner Engineering Corp. introduces FlexPower Nodes for the Banner SureCross Wireless Network. FlexPower provides a versatile wireless solution by allowing a SureCross Node to operate using a 10 to 30 V DC line power, solar panels or a FlexPower battery module in remote or difficult-to-access locations. A FlexPower Wireless Node and a connected sensor can be powered by a FlexPower battery module for up to five years, depending on the application and individual power requirements. Efficient power management technology enables the FlexPower Node to briefly increase the switch power voltage to activate a sensor for a fraction of a second. After the input reads the sensing status, the switch power returns to its standby status level to prolong the battery’s life.

“Banner’s innovative FlexPower battery modules offer reliable, versatile power options for SureCross FlexPower Wireless Nodes, keeping remote, rotating or other challenging applications monitored for extended periods of time,” said Chris Dales, the senior application engineer of Banner Wireless Division. Dales adds, “FlexPower Nodes and power supplies offer an integrated solution for applications where hardwired power sources are impractical or unavailable.”

With FlexPower Nodes and battery modules, users can use the SureCross wireless sensing technology for the following applications:

·         Monitoring fluid levels in storage vessels

·         Monitoring and data acquisition on rotating machinery

·         Remote monitoring of towers or tank farms

·         Manufacturing monitoring and error proofing

·         Notification of power outages or system status emergencies

·         Triggering backup power systems when needed

·         Monitoring end effectors or robotic arms

·         Barn or dairy bulk tank temperature monitoring

·         Security monitoring and control of remote location

·         Refrigerated storage system temperature monitoring

Banner’s FlexPower Wireless Nodes and battery modules are easy to integrate into existing manufacturing systems. Installation and usage is simple. Some of the SureCross Wireless Network FlexPower Nodes’ features include:

·         Portable for frequent redeployment in error-proofing applications

·         Durable IP67/NEMA 6 construction

·         Configurable parameters for actuation voltage up to 24V DC, time on and sample

·         Plug-and-play connectivity with mounting flexibility
