Banner Engineering Wireless Q45 Sensor-Remote Device Model Provides Unprecedented Interface Flexibility for Dry Contact Applications
Press release date: September 25, 2012
Minneapolis, MN—Banner Engineering announces the SureCross® Q45 Remote Device (RD) model, the latest addition to the company’s line of wireless sensors. The Q45 RD model is capable of interfacing with isolated dry contacts or PNP outputs, allowing the RD to interface with almost any digital sensor. It also features a mode where it interfaces directly with NAMUR inductive proximity sensors. In addition to superior flexibility, the RD model delivers the longest lifetime of all Q45 sensors. The Q45 RD model operates on less than 100uA of current, allowing the battery to last up to five or more years depending on the application.
“The RD model extends the flexibility of our SureCross Q45 wireless sensor family even further,” said Bob Gardner, Senior Product Manager at Banner Engineering. “With the ability to interface with any PNP or dry contact outputs, the RD model provides our customers with the flexibility to solve diverse industrial control applications. This is the ideal solution for call for parts or call for service applications.”
The RD model is part of Banner’s innovative SureCross Q45 wireless sensor family, which is the world’s first self-contained, wireless standard photoelectric sensor solution designed for control and monitoring applications. The proprietary, self-contained battery, radio and sensor solution replaces costly wired solutions with simple deployment and untethered communications, improving efficiency by monitoring and coordinating multiple machines and processes.
