Every day, countless companies are faced with the real and often costly predicament of how to monitor and track the usage and alarm conditions of their equipment. Solving this issue, Keytroller, an industry leader as a designer, manufacturer and supplier of electronic safety and weighing devices, has unveiled the CYBERWATCH LAN - a simple, inexpensive and easy-to-install wireless hour and alarm meter.

For locations where a Wi-Fi network connection is accessible, the CYBERWATCH LAN provides monitoring on any piece of equipment with no monthly service cost. Users can monitor usage, idling, maintenance needs and alarm warnings (such as low fuel or impacts). The product also has optional sensors for monitoring impact, voltage, hydraulic, usage, pneumatic and temperature.

Embedded with its own web server and IP address (an internal 802.11 B, G, N, 2.4 GHz wireless access point), users can connect to the device through the Wi-Fi network or as an ad-hoc device to view data from a tablet, cell phone or computer. In addition, automatic e-mails can be programmed with usage and alarm reporting.

The internal and external wireless access point and network settings are configured using a web browser accessing the device's internal web server. This is possible using the internal access point and the external wireless network infrastructure connection. Real-time values of the hour meters and counters can be seen at any time by direct wireless access to the device.

The CYBERWATCH LAN is self-contained and installs on any make or model gas, LPG, diesel or electric machine.
  • Device can be configured to connect through Wi-Fi network access points or through a smartphone or tablet "ad-hoc" connection;
  • Weatherproof option available: Device can be ordered with a gel-filled option that protects the PCB from water intrusion and/or condensation;
  • Voltage input range of 8 - 14VDC;
  • Optional high voltage converter: Converts 24 - 36 - 48VDC input to 12VDC;
  • External Wi-Fi antenna;
  • Optional AC relay interface: Allows for monitoring of 120/240V AC powered machinery (optional plug-in 12VDC transformer power supply available);
  • Small plastic case size: 5 ½ x 3 ½ x 1 5/8 inches.
Forklifts, conveyors, engines, pumps, compressors, generators, motors, machinery: any powered vehicle or stationary machine where you want to accurately monitor usage at an affordable price with NO wireless costs. Standard CYBERWATCH LAN unit can "watch" up to 4 different machines or inputs at once.

CYBERWATCH LAN in Forklift Applications:
The CYBERWATCH LAN can be attached to 4 different inputs on a forklift (plus input power connection from the forklift to power it). Each input will record hours/minutes of usage when the input goes "high". Alternatively, the installer can simply attach the device to input power and enable the vibration counter which will count hours as the forklift is in use and vibrating. All data will be sent out via email via the client's Wi-Fi network to the same email location. Once received the emails can be "processed" and the data imported into maintenance scheduling software or an Excel spreadsheet.
