This article and video will cover the Wireless QM42VT vibration and temperature sensor from Banner Engineering.
Catching excessive vibration on your equipment can not only prevent downtime, but also help prevent additional wear and tear, and damage to surrounding equipment. With Banner engineering's wireless vibration and temperature sensor you can remotely monitor and display statuses, as well as sound an alarm when certain thresholds are exceeded.
Banner’s QM42VT sensor provides a rugged IP67 zinc housing for harsh environments. The sensor can be mounted directly to motors, fans, pumps, gearboxes or compressors.
The sensor provides a serial interface to a Banner Node that can report temperature up to 80 degrees C and vibrations which are measured in mm or inches per second.
This will work with a variety of nodes from the Q45, to the performance series, or multihop, provided they are serial nodes.
Simply mount the sensor to your equipment by means of brackets, magnets, or thermal mounting tape, all of which are provided by Banner.
Next, connect the sensor to the node using the 5 pin quick disconnect. Then, power up the node by holding button 1.
Finally, bind it to the gateway using the three click method. Click button 2 on the gateway three times, then click button two on node 3 times. When the node says bound it is ready to communicate. That's it, you're ready to start monitoring remote equipment for temperature and vibration changes!
