Temperature Monitoring

Monitoring and regulating temperature is critical in many applications and in a diverse range of industries. For many applications, such as ensuring product quality and food safety, specific temperature ranges must be maintained. Temperature data can also be indicative of equipment health and performance. The applications are nearly endless. Location, distance, environmental conditions and temperature fluctuations ranging from slight to profound can complicate deployment, performance, and accuracy. Banner solutions for monitoring and regulating temperature are capable of detecting even slight fluctuations in temperature and can be used with our wireless products to provide temperature data from areas where wired connections are not practical or cost-effective.

  1. Using K50U ultrasonic sensors and Q45U wireless nodes paired to a DXM100 wireless controller, we can develop a wireless monitoring system for multiple tank level measurements that is easy to set up, interpret the results, and monitor locally through a cloud-based system.

  2. Wireless products enable predictive maintenance in the port industry. Motors and gearboxes on cranes are prone to high vibration and temperature which can cause them to degrade. Predictive maintenance allows employees to interfere and solve problems before they completely fail and cause unplanned downtime and lost profit.

  3. Wireless monitoring of rotating parts on coal conveyors throughout a large port allows operators to utilize predictive maintenance to prevent failure and save money while reducing downtime.

  4. An automotive manufacturer was rejecting a supplier’s shipment of rear window assemblies due to faulty defroster grids. The supplier’s existing test procedure measured current draw across the entire heating system to detect an overall failure, but it could not detect the subtle impact of a single heating wire being broken. The window supplier partnered with a Michigan-based machine automation company to create a better test fixture—one that can verify each defrost wire heats to specification prior to shipping.

  5. The EPA has placed restrictions on the use of many fumigants citing a correlation between their use and ozone depletion. As an alternative, a large-scale flour mill performs three to four thermal remediations per year to eradicate flour beetles. The temperature inside the mill is brought up to 122° F (50° C). This is done gradually to minimize equipment and building strain caused by heat expansion.

  6. To ensure that a griddle is on, non-contact T-GAGE M18T temperature sensors are aimed at the cooking surface to detect that the surface is hotter than the surrounding air. If the waffle iron is hot, the batter will be poured in and the process will continue. If it is not hot enough, the T-GAGE temperature sensor output won't trigger the batter release mechanism allowing the iron additional time to heat.

  7. To allow for quicker, more frequent, and more efficient scanning of target valve population tailpipe temperatures, a series of FlexPower Thermocouple Nodes and FlexPower Battery Supply Modules are installed. Temperature measurements of the valves and pipes are measured and wirelessly transmitted to a DXM100 Wireless Controller mounted in a central location. The DXM100 gathers the data and transfers the data to a SCADA system that monitors and graphically displays the temperature data.

  8. FlexPower Nodes equipped with thermocouple or RTD sensors were mounted near the monitored motors. The sensor data is sent to a Gateway installed in a central control location. The temperature set point can be established to meet the applications requirements and then provide a discrete output from the Gateway. When predetermined temperature levels are detected, the red light of a stack light connected to a Gateway lights up, alerting personnel that maintenance is required.

  9. The SureCross Wireless Sensor Network eliminates complexities associated with data acquisition from rotating and moving machinery such as a rotating kiln. Crucial temperature data is acquired using a thermocouple or RTD and transmitted from the FlexPower Nodes to a remote Gateway in the plant's control center. Data is always concentrated in the same location for processing or analysis, and manual data collection and physical risks to personnel are eliminated. Temperature data is logged and anal

  10. Banner’s DX99 Nodes offer solutions for monitoring the temperature of motor bearings using thermocouples or RTDs. Because these are low power sensors and radios, a battery life of up to three years is possible. The Node sends temperature data wirelessly back to a central control location for logging and analysis. When the bearing temperature rises unexpectedly, maintenance can be scheduled before any motors burn out or equipment is damaged. It is likely this temperature data would not be monit

  11. Soil moisture and air temperature sensing ranges are typically under a mile, but the Site Survey tested the signal out to two miles. With the MultiHop Radio and its antenna installed very low to the ground, the Master Radio was installed with a large omnidirectional antenna to maximize the communication range.

  12. A SureCross FlexPower™ Node with internal battery directly connected to a temperature and humidity sensor can provide these measurements without costly conduit or cabling, eliminating the need to manually collect data from multiple sensor locations. IP67 electronics and a variety of filter options make this product suited for the wide temperature and humidity ranges encountered in a greenhouse.

  13. A resistance temperature detector senses the temperature of a walk-in cooler and sends the data to a SureCross FlexPower Node. The Node in turn sends that data to a Gateway, which issues an alarm to management if the temperature exceeds acceptable limits. The DX80 FlexPower Nodes have a IP67 rating for rugged environments and work well in the cold.

  14. Manual data collection is eliminated using a SureCross FlexPower™ Node equipped with two thermocouples to automatically monitor the temperature at two depths within a compost windrow or stack.

  15. Taking measurements on rotating equipment, such as a kiln or rotary table, usually requires a complex and expensive system of cabling. Even taking precautions and using specialized equipment doesn’t eliminate cable tangles and breaks. The SureCross Wireless Network eliminates complexities associated with data acquisition from rotating and moving machinery such as a rotating kiln. Crucial temperature data is acquired using a thermocouple and transmitted from the FlexPowered SureCross Nodes to a

  16. T-GAGE M18T Series Temperature Sensors are passive, non-contacting, temperature-based devices designed to detect objects that are hotter or colder than the ambient condition, and then activate an output. In this application, the T-GAGE temperature sensor will detect the presence or absence of hot glue on the flaps of the package. If the hot glue is present, the process will continue and the package will be sealed. If it’s absent, the output will trigger a process to apply the hot glue.

  17. Banner’s T-GAGE M18T temperature sensor is ideal for hot glue verification because it detects the infrared energy an object emits to determine its temperature, sensing from 0⁰C to 300⁰C. In this application, the T-GAGE M18T temperature sensor detects the presence or absence of hot glue on the flaps. If hot glue is present, the package will continue down the manufacturing line;if it is missing, the output will trigger a pusher arm to kick the carton off the conveyor into a bin.

  18. Banner’s wireless vibration and temperature sensor measures RMS velocity, in inches per second or millimeters per second, and temperature. Mounting it as close as possible to the bearings enables you to monitor the machine’s health by detecting increases in vibration and temperature. It is easy to mount using the standard bracket, the magnetic bracket or two sided thermal transfer mounting tape.

  19. 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.

  20. SureCross devices can monitor temperature, vibration, and pressure. A mobile FlexPower Node equipped with up to three thermocouples monitors critical bearing temperature and sends the data to a Gateway for logging. With this information, maintenance personnel can service the machine based on performance indicators and minimize down time.

  21. A semiconductor fab needs to monitor temperature, relative humidity, and oxygen levels at multiple points within their processing plant, along a 2 kilometer long process piping system. They require a solution that monitors temperature, relative humidity, and oxygen levels, provides a location for the monitoring points, and collects all data to a central point and interfaces with their SCADA system. The solution needs to create an efficient, safe work environment for all employees. With over 2 kilometers of underground tunnel piping systems, installing cable to each monitoring location is cost prohibitive.

  22. A large cabinet maker needs to monitor and control the temperature and humidity throughout many rooms in a large production facility. Manual environmental readings of the entire plant were conducted periodically throughout the week. These manual readings only provided a snapshot of information and gathering the data took more than three hours. The customer did not have real-time, accurate information that could be used to control the plant environment. Manually collecting this information and controlling the fan system was timeconsuming and resulted in errors that damaged wood in storage, work in progress, and finished cabinets.
