Industrial automation manufacturer Banner Engineering announces its DXMR90-X1 smart industrial controller has received Gold in the Industrial Automation category at the 2022 Leadership in Engineering Achievement Program (LEAP) Awards.

The DXMR90-X1 is a primary component of Banner Engineering’s Snap Signal product series, an overlay system that harvests data from legacy products and other devices, regardless of signal type or manufacturer. Data is processed at the edge, converted to common Industrial Ethernet protocols, and sent where it’s needed.

The DXMR90-X1 provides a simple and cost-effective way to connect existing sensors and devices without requiring expensive retrofits, overhauls, or equipment replacement. It also avoids switching everything over to the same ecosystem at great cost. With data provided by the DXMR90-X1, production line efficiency can be boosted by discovering and remedying choke points and other areas that hamper the line’s effectiveness. Real-time alerts allow better decision making and remote asset management.

“The DXMR90-X1 Industrial Controller … simplifies the integration of mature Modbus networked sensors into industrial networks such as Modbus TCP, EtherNet/IP, and PROFINET,” adds the competition judges.
