Basic Performance Nodes: Wireless Series

April, 2018 | Lindsey Shepard

Add Wireless Communication to Devices at a Reduced Cost with Basic Performance Nodes

The popular Performance Series of wireless Nodes adds two new cost-effective models for use in large deployments and price-sensitive applications. Like other Nodes in the Performance Series, the new Basic Performance Nodes offer the same performance capabilities, options for integrated I/O, and include an internal antenna. Unlike other Performance Series Nodes, they do not feature rotary dials or an LCD screen.

Key Benefits of Basic Performance Nodes

  • Cost-Effective Price Point: Basic models in the Performance Series cost approximately 25% – 30% less than standard models, making them a cost-effective solution for monitoring multiple points in large installations.
  • Solve Simple Applications: Performance P6L Nodes have a 1-wire serial interface, making it easy to add wireless connectivity to Banner’s temperature and humidity
    sensors, vibration and temperature sensors, ultrasonic and similar sensors.
  • Monitor Multiple Devices: With one configurable discrete input, one configurable analog input, and one thermistor input, Performance P14L Nodes can provide
    wireless connectivity to multiple devices at the same time, including ultrasonic sensors, thermistors, flow sensors, pressure sensors, and more.
