Ultra 300 Ethernet IO ControllerFully programmable web-enabled I/O controller for IIoT and industrial automation applications

The Linortek Ethernet I/O controller is a web SERVER, it’s built on standard TCP/IP platform with a built-in web server that you can access, control and monitor your equipment over the network from a web browser, no add-on software to install, no special programming skills required.

Using relay switched outputs, opto-isolated digital inputs and analog inputs, you can upgrade any stand-alone physical hardwired equipment to a network/Internet enabled product for remote control and data acquisition with the Linortek industrial I/O controller. The built-in MQTT protocol provides a standard method of communication with any IoT platforms and applications to integrate the data acquired by the Linortek devices into your own system.

Local & Remote Control & Monitoring

The Linortek industrial Ethernet I/O controller is NOT a cloud-based system. All data is stored locally at your facility giving you full control of collected records. To use the controller locally, connect it to your local network using TCP/IP communication over Ethernet with the provided RJ45 cable, data transfer can be done through RESTful API, XML and MQTT if needed.

The Linortek Ethernet I/O controller can also be used for remote control & monitoring by port forwarding the device to the internet to obtain a web address, so you can access, control and monitor your equipment at anytime from anywhere with an internet enabled device. Using the MQTT protocol, the controller can publish the collected data as MQTT message to a broker, have your system/application subscribe to the same broker and topic, you can view the data from your own system, making the Linortek device a great tool for your Industrial Internet of Things applications.

Ethernet IO Controller Peer to Peer Communication

Peer-to-Peer Communication (P2P)

With the built-in server and remote function, each Linortek Ethernet I/O controller is an independent system that includes the hardware and software for installation and data acquisition. Once it’s connected to the network, the device can “talk” to each other over the network that you can build a peer-to-peer (P2P) communication system, this allows you to use one device to control the others remotely, eliminating the need for long run wiring and a centralized administrative system. To use the Peer-to-Peer communication function is simple, just link the IP addresses together from the Remote Devices setup page, enter the IP address, login credentials, setup the condition logic task, you are all set.

Condition Logic Control

Using the condition-logic task builder, you can easily create tasks based on inputs or outputs’ status using IF…THEN… THAT statement. Create up to three actions for each task providing you with the ultimate control and monitoring solution for your project.

Advanced Features

Linortek ethernet io controller RESTful API

RESTful API

RESTful API is an interface that two computer systems use to exchange information securely over the internet. Most business applications have to communicate with other internal and third-party applications to perform various tasks. With the RESTful API, you can easily control the device or pull the data from the I/O controller without the need of logging onto the device, or integrate the data collected by the controller to a 3rd party system.

MQTT

MQTT is a simple messaging protocol, designed for constrained devices with low-bandwidth, it’s the perfect solution for Internet of Things applications. MQTT allows you to send commands to control outputs, read and publish data from sensor nodes and much more. MQTT is added to our latest development – Ultra 300 controller and iTrixx WiFi hour meter, for more efficient and secure data communication. The new development provides a standard method of communication for Ultra 300 to reliably communicate data across networks with any IoT platform and applications, it makes it really easy to establish a communication between Ultra300 and other devices, enables Ultra 300 become a standard product in IIoT arena for data acquisition.

The Hardware & Software

We have worked with many customers using the Linortek Ethernet I/O controller to create various customized applications to meet their unique requirements. With the relay outputs, digital inputs and analog inputs built on the board, other sensors and devices can be connected to the I/O controllers to monitor a range of data, such as temperature, humidity, oil pressure, light levels, impact, voltage, RPM and more.

Relay Output

Each Linortek Ethernet I/O controller equips with various web relays that can be turned on, off, or pulsed using a web browser. Using the built-in web page and condition-logic Task Builder, you can use the relays to automatically control countless equipment including pumps, motors, lights, gates, almost any powered equipment, whether they are on the same network, or different network, or even remote locations.

Analog Input

The analog inputs allow the Server to read the value of external equipment. They are non-isolated, use provided power for eliminating ground loops, provides [email protected] 3.3VDC power source, PTC protected. For Fargo R4ADI, there are two of the analog inputs are specifically designed for interfacing to current sensors allowing current monitoring of external equipment.

Digital Input

The digital inputs allow the Ethernet I/O controller to detect an external on/off state of a sensor. With this information the SERVER can display whether an input is on or off, count events in a resettable or non-resettable counter, and calculate the frequency (such as for use as a tachometer) or the period of the input.

Web Page

The Linortek Ethernet I/O controller is DHCP enabled, when the controller is first installed on your network, it automatically obtains an IP from your router via DHCP if your router is set up to assign one. With the IP address, you can access the built-in webpage for initial setup and create your advanced tasks.
