Industrial technology distributor Motion highlighted Banner Engineering’s Asset Monitoring Gateway at Pack Expo 2023. This product is designed to work with Banner’s Snap Signal product line and Modbus sensors. The gateway can auto-detect and commission Modbus sensors and converters, has a 4-in. touchscreen HMI with stylus, an M12 decided Ethernet connector and a 30mm red/yellow/green indicator to mirror any HMI alarm conditions for operator awareness at-a-glance.
In the gateway system, Banner Engineering’s DXMR90 controller aggregates the data from multiple connections for local data processing, It also serves as system’s platform for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. The controller converts Modbus RTU and IO-Link signals to common industrial Ethernet protocols for transmission to a PLC, HMI or SCADA system or to the cloud.
