Linortek MSC Industrial Direct IoT Controller

All Linortek products are easy-to-use and can be installed on new equipment or retrofitted to existing devices. No additional software or third-party server is required. Through the reseller partnership, MSC now offers the following Linortek products:

iTrixx IOTMETER®: Innovative and custom developed devices that use IoT technology to remotely monitor cumulative usage hours, temperature, voltage and more for powered equipment or record real-time data on offline industrial vehicles and powered equipment, such as forklifts, cranes and ground support vehicles.

NETBELL® TIMED ALERT SYSTEM: A custom developed Internet enabled solution built on Linortek’s existing TCP/IP product platforms with built-in server to provide up to 500 web-based event schedules, no additional software or designated computer required. This product line includes four solutions: The Netbell PA System Controller modernizes existing Public Address systems in schools, industrial and commercial facilities as well as retail stores to schedule and play custom sounds for designated events. The Netbell Bell System works well in places with moderate noise levels, such as schools, business offices and small factories, while the Netbell Buzzer System complements noisy buildings and large areas such as production facilities and warehouses. The Netbell Bell Controller replaces older, traditional bell timers in schools, factories, businesses, warehouses, industrial facilities and commercial buildings.

UNIVERSAL WEB RELAY CONTROLLERS: Linortek’s controllers – Fargo and Koda – are built on a standard TCP/IP platform with a built-in web server that uses relay switched outputs, opto-isolated inputs and analog inputs to connect any stand-alone physical hardwired device to a network/internet control. Users can access, control and monitor these devices with standard Internet browsers and Android & iPhone apps.

“We’re excited that MSC has joined our reseller network. Linortek’s goal from the outset was to help companies gather useful data by connecting their off-line machines and devices to the internet. This partnership brings our IoT controllers to a wider market while providing MSC a more diverse product offering for its customer base.”
