Wireless sensor with self-contained push button
Banner Engineering's SureCross Wireless Q45 Sensor Family has a self-contained push button for direct operator communication that can operate on a two-point, six-point, or multi-point system.
Banner Engineering's SureCross Wireless Q45 Push Button with confirmation light has a bidirectional communication that permits operators to send a digital signal with the push of a button and receive confirmation the signal has been received.
The self-contained wireless radio network can operate on a two-point, six-point or multi-point system; its noise immunity eliminates crosstalk, while network IDs allow multiple systems to co-exist. The device’s frequency hopping signal ensures secure data transfer. The Q45 push button has a line-of-site range of up to 3,000 feet— enough to easily cover even very large factories. The Q45 pushbutton can run for up to five years on two AA lithium batteries, or it can be powered by a local 10-30V power supply. The battery option is ideal for applications that require the push button to be mobile or far from a local power source.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
