  • Banner Q45UR Ultrasonic Sensor
    Banner Q45UR Ultrasonic Sensor The Q45UR remote head ultrasonic sensor has solved many challenging applications where the criterion of acceptable and not acceptable is judged based on distance from the sensor. Because an ultrasonic sensor processes signals based on distance to an identified surface, it is not affected by variations in target color. Provided the target presents enough surface area to reflect sound energy back to the sensor head, it need not be precisely aligned within the radiation pattern in the X & Y axis allowing for variations in part and tooling position related to the process.

    Banner SureCross Wireless Products

    The Banner® SureCross® Wireless System is an industrial wireless I/O network that can operate in extreme environments and eliminate the need for costly wiring. The most basic SureCross sensor network includes a Gateway system controller and one or more Nodes that monitor and/or control I/O in remote locations.

    Nodes are deployed throughout a facility for gathering sensor data. This sensor data is then transmitted back to the Gateway. Installation is fast and easy with flexible mounting and power options. Some Nodes must be powered by 10 to 30V dc, whereas FlexPower® Nodes may be powered by solar panels or battery packs, often with a multi-year battery life while also providing power for external sensors.
