Parker Unveils New Wireless Sensors | Construction News

As the Internet of Things (IoT) leaps forward, Parker Hannifin Corp., a global leader in motion and control technology, continues to introduce products for diagnostics and condition monitoring.

Parker is introducing an expanded SensoNODE product line at this year’s Sensors Midwest conference Sept. 27-28, 2016, in in Rosemont, Ill.,

The latest additions to the SensoNODE product line include:

Parker’s newest version of its condition monitoring software, SCOUT Mobile 3.0, increases readability of data and customization of alarms and dashboards. The mobile app also improves ease of exporting measurements.

The new vacuum sensor monitors expanding pressure ranges and is ideal for vacuum pump monitoring and detecting system leaks.

The 4-20mA transmitter turns any wired sensor into a wireless device, making it easier to monitor any asset.

Two new temperature sensors that feature foot and probe designs to better accommodate user applications.

Parker’s ServiceJunior is now wireless. The integrated digital pressure gauge, with minimum/maximum memory capability and graphic display, has a scan rate of 10ms and provides increased accuracy and frequency to diagnostics.

The High-Strain sensor features Parker’s durable and energy-efficient electroactive polymer (EAP) strain technology. The stretchable polymer takes accurate measurements while being strained 100% for millions of cycles.

Having a wide range of products to pick from is central to maximizing efficiency and productivity while driving uptime, says David Shannon, Parker Quick Coupling Division’s business team manager. “Connecting various motion and control systems and subsystems to each other and out to the Internet is one great way to manage the entire organization,” Shannon says. “However, that can be a daunting task. Where do you start? Which standard do you follow? How do you avoid overpaying for technology that you don’t need, and how do you keep it secure?”

Shannon will address these and other concerns during his presentation at the Industrial IoT University on Wednesday, Sept. 28, from 3:15 to 3:45 p.m.
