Wireless Sensor Networks

Wireless Sensor Networks

Wireless sensors eliminate the need for cables, cord sets or external power. Easily add a single sensor in minutes without pulling cables; or quickly create a scalable, wireless sensor network infrastructure to improve the efficiency of coordinating and monitoring equipment or processes.

Wireless devices are flexible and easy-to-commission, designed to withstand extreme weather conditions and maintaining reliable signal transmission over long distances.

Banner Engineering is a leading global manufacturer of industrial sensors, including wireless technology. Banner's broad range quickly and cost effectively solves the most challenging applications.

Wireless Topology

Wireless networks have different topologies (the network's shape or structure), depending on the distance to achieve, the number of devices to connect, and the amount of information to transmit.

Point to Point
Point-to-Point

The most basic form of a radio network.     

Point to Point with Repeater
Point-to-Point with Repeater

Extend range and get around radio signal obstacles.

         Star

Connect multiple radios to a single point.              

         Tree
Tree

Use repeaters to extend the reach of multiple radios.


A sensor network consists of multiple detection stations called sensor nodes, which are usually small, lightweight and portable.
