What is Banner Wireless?

  • Banner Wireless is used to send I/O data (discrete, analog, serial, Modbus, etc.) wirelessly between Nodes and Gateways
  • Unlike Wi-Fi, Banner Wireless uses a dedicated binding address between Gateway and Nodes to establish communication
  • The communication utilizes FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) to minimize potential communication interference
  • Only sends IO data, not specific information. Difficult to “hack”.
  • Networks are available in 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz

Why use Banner Wireless?

Banner Wireless improves your ability to collect data from your operations

  • You can create wireless networks without incurring the cost of wiring and conduit
  • You can Retrofit older equipment so that it is Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) capable
  • You can access remote machines, tanks or silos.  No need to climb or visit remote areas to gather data
  • You can easily establish a predictive maintenance program to monitor the health of crucial machine components
  • Older machines that were not intended for data collection can become part of the factory network

What type of Networks are available?

DX80 Networks, up to 47 Nodes

  •   Point to Point or Star Topology:  Gateways communicate to Nodes and any connected Host System (PLC)
  •   Less complicated – Nodes talk only to the Gateway, the Gateway can be used as repeater

Multi-Hop Networks, Up to 50 Devices

  •   Utilize a Tree Topology: Master communicates to slaves
  •   Able to use repeaters

What is the difference between Gateways and Nodes?


  • Collects data from all nodes to a single point
  • Outputs to Host System via Modbus RS485, Modbus TCP, & Ethernet IP
  • Assigns network ID to nodes and monitors network connection of nodes
  • Can link I/O between nodes to allow wireless control
  • Many gateways include on-board I/O


  • Gather device data from discrete and/or analog inputs
  • Nodes with 1-wire serial interface collect data from Banner wireless sensors
  • Control local device via outputs
  • Some Nodes have Sensors built in

What type of Nodes are available?

Node Configurations

  • Node Power: Available in number of power configurations;  Battery Powered by internal battery, DC Powered by an external source such as a power supply, AC Powered
  • Node I/O: Available with different configurations of; Analog Inputs, Digital Inputs, Serial Inputs, Digital Outputs, Analog Outputs, Combinations of Analog and Digital
  • Node Housings: Available in compact Q45 Sensor Housings, Performance Series Housings with or with out QD/Terminals, Board Level
  • Sensors: Integrated or Remote depending on type and application
