Predictive Maintenance Made Easy with Banner's Wireless Vibration Solution

Vibration Monitoring for Predictive Maintenance Image
Predictive Maintenance Challenges

Predictive maintenance on machines can be difficult because minor performance changes can be hard to detect without the proper tools. Condition monitoring plays a key role in predictive maintenance and helps prevent costly downtime.  One important condition to monitor is vibration. Machine vibration is often caused by imbalanced, misaligned, loose, or worn parts. As vibration increases, so can damage to the machine. By monitoring motors, pumps, compressors, fans, blowers, and gearboxes for increases in vibration, problems can be detected before they become severe and result in unplanned downtime.

Wireless Vibration Monitor Makes Condition Monitoring Easy

Banner's wireless vibration and temperature sensors are meant to serve as a "check engine light" for machines, especially for machines that are remote. The sensors are defaulted to measure RMS velocity, which is the best indicator of general rotating machine health, and high frequency RMS acceleration, which is indicative of early bearing wear.  They can be easily mounted using a standard bracket, a magnetic bracket, or a two-sided thermal transfer mounting tape. The sensors are designed to work with multiple Banner wireless nodes.

Using Banner’s Vibration Monitoring Solution Guide, it is easy to establish vibration baselines and set warning and alarm thresholds.  Simply follow the Solution Guide instructions and load the configuration files into the DXM; a machine learning algorithm will automatically establish baselines and set thresholds.  When a threshold has been exceeded, a signal can be sent to a wireless TL70 tower light in a central location or an email or text alert can be sent. The vibration and temperature data can also be sent to a DXM100 wireless logic controller or PLC for collection and analysis.

QM42 Vibration & Temperature Series - Wireless

The QM42VT Vibration and Temperature Sensor makes it easy to monitor a machine's health. It measures RMS velocity and temperature so that problems can be detected before they become too severe and cause additional damage or result in unplanned downtime. Paired with a Banner wireless Node, it can provide local indication, wirelessly send the signal to a central location, and send the vibration and temperature data to the Gateway for collection and trending.
