Product Details Supplier Info More products

Banner Engineering has launched a range of Surecross Performance wireless I/O gateways and nodes for use in all environments, including remote or difficult-to-access areas.

The range features a high-power radio-frequency (RF) architecture with 1W transmit power in the 900MHz ISM band.

This architecture provides an increased range between devices – up to six miles.

The Surecross Performance range delivers the same power management, deterministic network and integrated site survey features originally designed for the Surecross product line, while offering additional model enhancements.

New models within this product range include universal analogue inputs, providing users with increased input selection options in a single device.

Operators have the ability to select either 4-20mA or 0-10V inputs in the field.

Additional node and gateway models provide up to 12 discrete inputs or outputs.

The Surecross Performance range also includes new temperature node options, offering up to four factory-calibrated temperature inputs for thermocouples or real-time device (RTD) inputs.

With Banner’s Flexpower technology, the Surecross Performance radio and external third-party sensors can be powered by solar panels, battery modules or 10-30VDC; as a result, solutions are not limited by locations with wired power.

Surecross Performance features are intended to simplify the specification and installation process for operators, offering flexible mounting and power options.

Some of the new models offer an enhanced ‘E’ housing style to provide an integrated battery and wiring terminal in one unit.

The Performance devices can also be configured to operate with Banner’s existing product line of 150mW radios, enhancing the I/O capacity of any Surecross wireless network.

Banner’s Surecross Performance wireless I/O devices are designed to deliver reliable, high-performance wireless sensing in remote locations.

With the increased range provided by 1W radios and the bidirectional communication architecture inherent with all Surecross products, Banner’s new models are suitable for long-range control and monitoring applications, including: reporting machine status in a large manufacturing facility; monitoring landfill ground well levels and controlling pumps; the remote monitoring of towers or tank farms across multiple locations; controlling equipment over long distances without installing high-gain antennas; enabling indoor applications without a line of sight between radios; and minimising installation time using the ‘E’ housing, with an integrated battery-power supply.
