About the Ranger Pro

The Ranger Pro wireless product has been in the market for over 6 years with over 28,000 sensors installed and rapidly expanding.  Ranger Pro is built off of industrial seal healing mesh networks (ISA 100 and wHART) that provide a secure, efficient and consistent solution in monitoring plant-wide assets such as pumps, motors and fans to name a few.  The Ranger Pro is an intrinsically safe (Class 1, Division 1) triaxial vibration sensor with casing temperature that provides 7 measurements when samples are taken (XYZ Accel, XYZ Velocity and casing temperature, magnetic flux capability coming soon) with up to 5 years of battery life depending on sampling frequency.   With PeakDemod, the Ranger Pro sensor is perfectly equipped to detect early-stage defects to provide a true condition monitoring approach on your assets.
