Banner launches IIoT division and kits

Nov. 9, 2020

Banner Engineering has launched a new business unit, SmartSolutions, featuring easy-to install, integrated and customizable IIoT kits of their sensors, wireless solutions and LED lighting. Combined with integrated software, the kits bring predictive monitoring and maintenance data online. The sensors establish a baseline and quickly identify areas for preventive repairs, bottlenecks in process, or other risks to overall equipment effectiveness.

“Companies interested in capturing the value of Industry 4.0 are wary of huge, enterprise-wide commitments or lengthy consulting engagements,” says Ty Fayfield, CEO of Banner Engineering. “SmartSolutions combines industrially-engineered products in the best possible way to pilot a concept, establish savings and success, and scale with complete confidence in both the equipment and the manufacturer.”

SmartSolutions has also formed a team of IIoT product experts to develop best-in-class product combinations for industrial productivity. The team relied on customer feedback to help shape features of the kits, including simple setup, intuitive reporting dashboard configurability, and scalability. The kits typically pay for themselves in a matter of weeks, as each reduces expenses, improves efficiency, and monitors equipment to prevent downtime, costly repairs, or waste.
