Machine Monitoring

Monitoring machine health in real time is critical to avoid costly unplanned downtime, but detecting small changes in machine performance can be difficult without the right tools. Banner Engineering CM Series wireless nodes provide easy machine monitoring and collection of vibration, temperature and current draw data from electric motors and similar equipment in remote and hard-to-access locations.

These easy-to-deploy nodes can be used to expose machine performance issues, identify equipment requiring full spectrum analysis and establish more strategic scheduling of equipment maintenance. Users can monitor the general health and performance of their equipment, as well as specific components such as motor bearings, brushes and windings. The nodes reduce complexity and make machine and process reconfiguration easier, meaning they’re great for retrofit applications.
