- Wireless Sensor Networks
The most basic SureCross® sensor network includes a Gateway system controller and one or more Nodes that monitor and/or control I/O in remote locations.
Nodes are slave devices within Banner's wireless sensor networks. Sensors and other devices connect to the Node's inputs or outputs. The Node collects the data and wirelessly transmits it to the Gateway.
These product pages describe the various SureCross Nodes and include links to the data sheets, which contain specifications and instructions applicable to a specific component or product, not to the entire family of products. Refer to the 3D Models page to download AutoCAD, STEP, IGES, and PDF models.
For a basic description of how antennas work, how to connect a remote antenna system, and the differences between omni and Yagi antennas, refer to Antenna Basics. There are many possible installation configurations for your wireless network. Refer to the System Layouts webpage for a few examples or download the System Layouts document for more detailed examples of some wireless networks.
These Nodes are powered by 10 to 30V dc and come in a variety of input/output options.
FlexPower Nodes may be powered by 10 to 30V dc, 3.6V Lithium D cells, or by other FlexPower supplies. Like the 10 to 30V dc Nodes, the FlexPower Nodes are available in a variety of input/output configurations.
FlexPower Nodes with batteries integrated into the housing can only be powered from the integrated battery. Models with batteries integrated into the housing are so noted. For all other FlexPower models, the DX81 or DX81P6 Battery Supply Modules must be ordered separately to power these devices from battery.
All Nodes with discrete I/O only. This list includes Nodes powered by 10-30V dc and FlexPower Nodes.
All Nodes with analog I/O only and powered by 10-30V dc.
All Nodes with both discrete and analog I/O, including the 10-30V dc Nodes and the FlexPower Nodes.
All Nodes with temperature-rated I/O, including the Thermocouple Node, the RTD Node, and the Serial Interface Node.
M-GAGE Nodes are used to detect the presence of vehicles.
Counter Nodes are FlexPower devices, capable of being powered by 10-30V dc, Battery Supply Modules, the Solar Power Assembly, or with a 3.6V Lithium battery integrated into the housing depending on the model.
Nodes with the Serial Interface include FlexPower Nodes and Nodes with a battery integrated into the housing.
