Keep Your Hydraulic Power Units Running at Peak Performance

Snap Signal Products Help You Capture the Information You Need and View It from Anywhere

Easily monitor the pressure, current, oil temperature, and motor vibration/temperature of hydraulic power units and other hydraulic machinery. Snap Signal products connect sensors of various types and convert their signals to Modbus data for real-time condition monitoring. For example, hydraulically powered industrial robots make it possible to meet ambitious quotas in the auto parts industry through fast and accurate assembly and palletizing. But an overheating motor in the hydraulic system could lead to a critical failure that would stop production for an extended period of time. Condition monitoring makes it possible to ensure that all equipment is working at optimal efficiency, and to detect and address potential maintenance issues before they lead to costly production downtime.

The Snap Signal system is designed to be a brand-agnostic, overlay-architecture technology, meaning that there’s no need to replace existing hydraulic systems or even older sensors. Snap Signal converters, adapters, or filters can be installed to branch off from existing sensors and send Modbus signals to a Banner DXMR90 Controller device. This controller combines multiple Modbus signals—potentially from an entire production environment—into a single data stream that can be processed in cloud networks, including Banner’s own Cloud Data Services. Then, users can monitor equipment performance data from anywhere with online visualization tools, and receive 24/7 notifications about any hydraulic component operating below customizable thresholds. Additionally, monitored machine health can be displayed on site using connected indicators, such as Banner tower lights.
