FlexPower wireless sensor nodes

Tuesday, 08 July, 2008 | Supplied by: Micromax Pty Ltd



Banner Engineering has introduced FlexPower nodes for the Banner SureCross wireless network. FlexPower provides a versatile wireless solution by allowing a SureCross node to operate using 10 to 30 VDC line power, solar panels, or a FlexPower battery module in remote or difficult-to-access locations.

A FlexPower wireless node and a connected sensor can be powered by a FlexPower battery module for up to five years, depending on the application and individual power requirements. Efficient power management technology enables the FlexPower node to briefly step up the switch power voltage to activate a sensor for a fraction of a second. After the input reads the sensing status, the switch power returns to its standby status level to prolong battery life.

Banner’s SureCross wireless network has been purpose-built to deliver reliable, high-performance wireless sensing to remote or difficult-to-access areas.

With FlexPower Nodes and battery modules, users can use SureCross wireless sensing technology in a wide variety of challenging applications, including: monitoring fluid levels in storage vessels; monitoring and data acquisition on rotating machinery; remote monitoring of towers or tank farms; manufacturing monitoring and error proofing; notification of power outages or system status emergencies; triggering backup power systems when needed; monitoring end effectors or robotic arms; barn or dairy bulk tank temperature monitoring; security monitoring and control of remote locations; and refrigerated storage system temperature monitoring.
