Machine Runtime Tracking / Hour Meter
Linortek’s Network Hour Meter is easy to use, network enabled, cost-efficient, and custom-developed. This hour meter can be used as a monitoring and alerting system to track runtime of expensive equipment or systems to assure proper maintenance. The machine run time counter’s data collection serves as preventative maintenance for manufacturing equipment. With the NHM, you can collect the equipment runtime data over a network or the Internet, you get accurate, instant readings of your equipment with a simple click. You don’t even have to move from your chair! The NHM is an ideal solution for monitoring engines, motors, generators, pumps, manufacturing machinery and servers, and any other type of stationary equipment. Beyond monitoring equipment operating hours, the hour meter also has an optional external sensor to monitor temperature and humidity.
Real-Time Data Acquisition and Alerting
The Network Hour Meter is built on Linortek’s TCP/IP web-based product platform. It is housed in a Din-rail mountable enclosure that can connect to the LAN through a network cable. It supplies two digital inputs (5-24VDC), two relay outputs (1-Form-A relays 110/2220 10A dry contact), one analog input for temperature and humidity monitoring and specially designed software that functions as an hour meter.
If you want to receive audible or visual notifications when a specific hour is reached, connect a buzzer or light to one of the built-in relays and once the preset hour is reached you can have that relay turn on, alerting you when maintenance is required. A real-time email notification can be easily setup on hour meter setting page.
Central Data Monitoring Desk App
Whether you are maintaining one piece of equipment or multiple pieces of equipment, you can monitor all equipment runtime data from Linortek’s HourMeter Collector program on a PC. This free desktop app can be used to monitor multiple devices from one simple interface. This way, you won’t need to log in to the devices individually. The HourMeter collector program will automatically collect the hour runtime every two minutes by default. When running the HourMeter Collector app on your computer, it will generate a CSV-FILE folder incorporating your Hour Meter Log’s details, which you can use to import to your own management system.
Data Integration and Management
For anyone who needs to incorporate the hour readings into their own management database you can transfer the data automatically with the RESTful API or polled over a TCP connection using XML calls and your proprietary app, or simply use the CSV file that is saved on the PC from the HourCollector App, to manage equipment across single or multiple locations.
WiFi Hour Meter vs Network Hour Meter
The NHM connects to the LAN through a RJ45 cable. Looking for a wireless solution? We have you covered! Check our Wireless Wifi Hour Meter if you need a device to monitor any kinds of mobile equipment such as ground support equipment, construction equipment, forklifts, golf carts, bob cats, heavy duty vehicles.
