The Ultra 300 is the latest development of Linortek Ethernet I/O controller with MQTT protocol. It is built on Linortek TCP/IP web-based product platform, with built-in web server, hardware-based encryption, supports HTTPS connections. Ultra 300 allows you access, control and monitor your equipment over the network or via Internet from anywhere with any web browser. No add-on software is needed to install, no special programming skills are required. Using relay switched outputs, 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 Ultra 300. Using the widely used MQTT protocol, the Ultra 300 can be connected to an MQTT broker (MQTT server) and publish data as MQTT message to common IoT platforms such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS or IBM Cloud.

Collected data can be integrated to a 3rd party software/system using XML, JSON, RESTful API or the MQTT protocol
Powered by POE or 5-48VDC, DINRail or panel mount, push-in spring connectors for easy installation
Browser-based setup, logical condition/action for I/O with no scripting required
Hardware & software for installation and operation included, no software to purchase, no 3rd party server
Local & Remote Control & Monitoring
The Ultra 300 MQTT 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 Ultra 300 locally, connect it to your local network using TCP/IP communication over Ethernet with the provided RJ45 cable. This is ideal for local control & monitoring. Data transfer can be done through RESTful API, XML or MQTT, if needed.
The Ultra 300 can also be used for remote control & monitoring by port forwarding the device to the internet to obtain a web address. This enables you to access, control and monitor the Ultra 300 at anytime, from anywhere, using Internet.
Peer-to-Peer Communication (P2P)
With the built-in server and remote access function, each Ultra 300 unit is an independent system that includes the hardware and software for installation and data acquisition. Once it’s connected to the network, the devices 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 over the network or internet, without the use of a centralized administrative system. The Peer-to-Peer communication function is easy to use: just link the IP addresses together from the Remote Devices setup page, enter the IP address, login credentials, setup the condition logic tasks, you are all set!
Condition Logic Control
With the condition-logic task builder, you can easily create tasks based on inputs or outputs’ status using IF…THEN… THAT statements. Create up to three actions for each task. This feature provides you with the ultimate control and monitoring solution for your project.
Ultra 300 MQTT I/O Controller Advanced Features – 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 data from the Ultra 300 MQTT IO Controller without the need of logging into the device, or integrate data collected by the Ultra 300 to a third-party system.
Ultra 300 MQTT IO Controller Advanced Features – MQTT
MQTT is a simple messaging protocol, designed for constrained devices with low-bandwidth. It’s a 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. Implementation of MQTT protocol into the Ultra 300 MQTT IO controller provides a standard method to reliably communicate data across networks with any IoT platform and application. It simplifies communication between Ultra300 and other devices, enabling Ultra 300 become a standard product for data acquisition in IIoT field.
Ultra 300 MQTT I/O Controller Applications
Ultra 300 is built on a standard TCP/IP product platform, with a built-in server, relay outputs, digital inputs and analog inputs, making the Ultra 300 a great fit for literally thousands of applications. Whether you are looking for a simple device to remotely reboot your equipment, to save a trip, remotely control a timed alert system, monitor temperature & humidity for a cooler, commercial freezer, server room, or a solution to collect runtime data for preventative maintenance for hundreds of pieces of equipment, the Ultra 300 can do the job!
With the Netbell bell scheduling software on the Ultra 300, you can use the Ultra 300 controller to schedule bell system via the web. Increased RAM and FLASH memories allows you to store multiple sets of schedules on the Ultra 300 board and switch schedules with a click of the mouse, making management of your bell system incredible easy.
Nowadays, virtually every industry is using computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS). The core of any CMMS is its database. With the iTrixx hour metering software the Ultra 300 can publish hour readings as MQTT messages to a cloud CMMS software or to common IoT platforms such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS or IBM Cloud. Once this is set up, the system will remain updated with the latest hour readings and, based on runtime/maintenance intervals, it can automatically trigger work orders.
