Banner Engineering Launches Business Unit

Banner Engineering, Minneapolis, Minnesota, an industrial automation provider, has launched a new business unit, SmartSolutions™, featuring easy-to install, integrated and customizable IIOT kits of its award-winning sensors, wireless solutions and LED lighting. The kits, combined with integrated software, immediately 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.

Ty Fayfield, CEO of Banner Engineering, said that companies interested in capturing the value of Industry 4.0 are wary of huge, enterprise-wide commitments or lengthy consulting engagements, and that 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 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 set-up, 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.

Fayfield noted that these kits are just the start of the company’s end-to-end product solutions, which are integrating hardware, cloud software and cellular technologies to get customers online in a matter of minutes.

The kits developed by SmartSolutions™ are available through a national network of Banner Engineering distributors, as well as via the Banner Engineering website. SmartSolutions™ introduced an additional site to highlight the kits, available at
