Motor Temperature Monitoring and Control with a Wireless Network

Motor Temperature Monitoring and Control with a Wireless Network Image

Challenge

Monitoring motor temperature in a high-friction application helps to calculate performance and to schedule maintenance.

Solution

Instead of installing I/O transmission cabling, use a 10 to 30V dc powered SureCross Node and a Banner T-GAGE temperature sensor. 

When using host control systems, the SureCross Gateway transmits the temperature to the plant control room using a digital output related to temperature setpoints within the sensor. The motor is powered down or up based on these temperatures.

When using a Gateway Pro as the wireless master device, the data ca be logged and alerts sent out to notify maintenance personnel when a motor is performing outside expected parameters.
