Wireless Solution Guides

These guides detail common applications built around the DXM100 Wireless Controller and a range of Banner wireless products. Each guide provides an overview of the application, equipment used, features and benefits, and step-by-step instructions for implementation, including:

  • Binding the radios
  • Running a site survey
  • Accessing and loading the XML and Script files
  • Making site specific customizations
  • Sending information to the Sensonix Webservices cloud

Tank Level Monitoring

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 and through a cloud-based system.

Machine Monitoring/Overall Equipment Effectiveness

Using a TL70 Modular Tower Light with a wireless radio base improves machine monitoring and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) by expanding available data beyond the local indication a standard tower light provides.

Call for Parts, Service, or Pallet Pickup

Increase production efficiency by developing a wireless call-for-parts/service/pallet pickup system that allows for up to 18 work stations to call out to six forklifts/Hi-Los using the EZ-Light K70 Touch to wireless Q120 6-Button Pendant. This provides for quicker responses from forklift drivers and/or supervisors to indicate a request has been accepted. When creating a call system using wireless indicators, work stations can maintain a steady workflow and resolve critical issues quickly.

High-Speed Parts Counting

Increase production efficiency by monitoring part multiple part counts with to up 16 wireless Performance Nodes. The high-speed asynchronous totalizing done by the DX80-P16E Node gives the ability to totalize up to 10,000 parts per second. Monitoring the current state of part counting inputs along with parts per minute rates can be used to establish errors or inefficiencies in the system. 

Motor Control

Remotely control up to 12 motors using two wireless Q120 Nodes and 12 single input/single output wireless Nodes. Track motor status, motor run time, the count of times that a motor was turned on, and the status of the auxiliary input.

Temperature and Humidity Monitoring

Using the temperature and humidity sensor connected to a Wireless Q45 Node paired to a DXM100, we can develop a wireless monitoring system for multiple environmental measurements that is easy to set up, interpret the results, and monitor locally and through a cloud-based system.
