We Do ... Sensors


The QM42VT Vibration and Temperature Sensor

The QM42VT Vibration and Temperature Sensor makes it easy to monitor a machine’s health. It measures RMS velocity and temperature so that problems can be detected before they become too severe and cause additional damage or result in unplanned downtime. Paired with a Banner wireless Node, it can provide local indication, wirelessly send the signal to a central location, and send the vibration and temperature data to the Gateway for collection and trending.

  • Easily monitor machine health by sending info wirelessly to wherever you need it
  • Avoid machine failures and delays by detecting problems early
  • Reduce downtime and plan maintenance more efficiently
  • Monitor a variety of machines to suit your needs: motors, pumps, compressors, fans, blowers, gear boxes

We Do ... Factory Automation


Parker’s new PAC Terminal (PT) Thin-client HMI

Parker is excited to announce the release of the PAC Terminal. The PAC Terminal (PT) is a thin client HMI developed to work seamlessly with the Parker Automation Controller (PAC). With the PAC handling the control and HMI logic, the PT is responsible for displaying the embedded HMI as well as sending touch screen input from the user back to the PAC. As a thin client, the PT significantly reduces the overall system costs when compared to a traditional HMI—especially if it is desired for multiple PTs to connect to a single PAC.
