Banner Engineering: Standalone Solution Simplifies Deployment of Wireless Monitoring System


July 20, 2021

The DEK Wireless Monitoring Kit is a standalone preventive maintenance solution for simple independent monitoring of outdoor applications, from agriculture and water treatment to mining and manufacturing. This kit contains everything to deploy an end-to-end solution to capture data, like vibration, temperature, humidity, tank level, duty cycle and pressure. The kit is integrated into a weatherproof enclosure with all components necessary to eliminate guesswork and ensure a working solution.


Because the standalone DEK Wireless Kit includes everything needed for a remote preventive-maintenance monitoring solution, complexity is removed, and installation is fast. The end-to-end kit contains a gateway controller, software, connectors, solar panel, battery backup, wireless transceiver, weatherproof enclosure, pre-paid access to cloud software tools for 90 days, and embedded cellular connectivity that can be activated in minutes through a self-service portal. Just decide which assets you want to monitor, and add a’ la carte sensors as desired. Banner application engineers are available to give you advice and direction to set up a new system.


Asset managers will appreciate that the installation may be done without a consultant, with minimal controller programming, and without a steep learning curve. Unlike typical competitive solutions, the controller can be loaded with a variety of freely available configuration files from Banner’s website library to get you up and running quickly. Asset managers don’t need to struggle with the installation, and they can be confident the system has been set up correctly. And buying a packaged solution reduces startup costs as well.


The DEK Wireless Monitoring Kit is ideal for solitary, self-sustained monitoring of critical assets, where there is no power or ethernet. It features solar power charging of the on-board battery, factory enabled cellular connection to the Banner cloud, and wireless communication of sensor data to the controller, which in turn uploads it to the cloud. The packaged solution frees your operation from sending technicians to the field to make manual measurements and observations. Equipment is protected by weather-proof enclosures for any environment.


For preventive maintenance, the Banner wireless DEK standalone monitoring system handles critical asset monitoring for a diverse range of outdoor markets and applications. It can monitor performance and status for conditions, such as:

  •    –   Pump run-time
  •    –   Power consumption
  •    –   Pressure
  •    –   Flulid flow (pulse counter)
  •    –   Temperature & humidity
  •    –   Differential Pressure
  •    –   Tank levels (liquid / solid)
  •    –   Vibration & Temperature
  •    –   And much more
