Snap Signal is an easily deployable, complete portfolio of modular IIoT hardware and software that delivers actionable machine data from across your factory. More than just another flavor of IIoT, Snap Signal is an overlay network that can capture data signals from virtually any source. It seamlessly converts these sources to a single industry-standard protocol, then distributes the data for quick and easy consumption. Snap Signal offers you the flexibility to monitor key equipment within one area or monitor your whole facility.

 

Controller

The DXMR90 is an IIoT enabling industrial controller that transmits information from multiple sources simultaneously in a unified protocol for real-time analysis and consumption. The DXMR90 is also capable of edge processing through logic and data manipulation. 

Banner’s DXMR90 Series Controller consolidates data from multiple connections to provide local data processing as well as accessibility for host systems as a platform for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The DXMR90 contains individual Modbus Clients allowing for concurrent communication to up to five independent serial networks. Data is collected into the controller to facilitate edge processing, convert protocols to Industrial Ethernet, and send information where you need it.

  • Converts Modbus RTU to Modbus TCP/IP, Ethernet I/P, or Profinet
  • Internal logic driven by action rules for easy programming, or MicroPython and ScriptBasic for developing more complex solutions
  • Internet protocols including RESTful, MQTT, and APIs
  • Compact housing saves space and weight compared to traditional “block”-style form factors
  • Email alerts can be set up directly from the DXMR90
  • Equipped with IP65, IP67, and IP68 rated housing for use in challenging environments
  • Powered by 12 to 30 V dc
  • RS-485 and Ethernet communications ports
  • User programmable LEDs for local status indication
  • Connects to databases (including Banner’s Cloud Data Services) over Ethernet or through a cellular enabled DXM Controller
  • Ideal for IIoT data analytics, condition monitoring, predictive maintenance, OEE analysis, diagnostics, and troubleshooting

Converters

Unlock valuable equipment data from new and existing devices with Banner’s S15C and R45C converters. These converters allow you to connect two previously incompatible device types and seamlessly transmit data across multiple IIoT ecosystems. S15C and R45C Converters take various types of signals including discrete, analog, and others and transform these signals to industrial protocols like IO-Link or Modbus. This makes it easy to incorporate existing legacy sensors into standard protocols to enable process monitoring. 

Data conversion just got easier. Our converters are compact, simple add-ons that seamlessly fit into your factory applications. Take various types of signals such as discrete, analog and many others and convert them to smart protocols like IO-link, PICK-IQ, and Modbus. You can also represent analog signals digitally with our S15C Pulse Pro Converters. Let Banner’s family of Converters be your first step in your path towards full system integration.

 

Adapters

S15A in-line adapters easily redirect wiring from one pin to another to match specific application requirements. The compact adapters are designed to connect directly to sensors, indicators, or other devices. This allows you to begin operating immediately.

S15A in-line wiring adapters are small, plug-in accessories designed to connect directly to a sensor, indicator, or other device to redirect wiring for any function, operation, or utilization. They fit seamlessly into your factory applications and begin operating immediately.

  • Adapters reroute wiring to match specific application requirements
  • Match outputs to inputs and isolate select signals
  • Rugged over-molded design meets IP65, IP67, and IP68 standards
  • Simple M12 connection for easy installation where needed in the circuit
  • Custom options are available

 

Filters

S15F in-line filters are a simple way to solve challenges with electrical noise and transient voltage that affect devices in your system. By installing these filters between your device and controller they improve signal integrity, and reduce troubleshooting time.

S15F in-line filters are small, plug-in accessories designed to connect directly to a sensor, indicator, or other device. They fit seamlessly into your factory applications and begin operating immediately. to suppress or filter electrical noise and transients.

  • Protect devices from electrical noise and transients
  • Rugged over-molded design meets IP65, IP67, and IP68 standards
  • Simple M12 connection for easy installation where needed in the circuit
  • Improve signal integrity and reduce troubleshooting time, and install wiring more quickly.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
