L.B. White LINK™

Connect 24/7 to your heat fleet. Monitor with L.B. White LINK wherever you are.
L.B. White LINK is a turnkey stack of technologies that puts actionable heater insights at your fingertips. In the construction industry these type of technology stacks are commonly known as a telematics. LINK uses elements of:

  • Engineering to capture heater signals
  • Computer science to digitize heater signals into meaningful and accessible data
  • Communications to reliably transfer heater data wirelessly

Benefit from a smarter heat fleet

  • Meet increasing demand for connected jobsites and data-driven decision making
    • Equipment users are leveraging technology & data to be more productive, safe, and cost effective in their operations
    • Specialized labor is increasingly more difficult to get so any technology that will make better use of existing resources is increasingly important
    • The global COVID-19 pandemic forced many construction players to use technology which a dynamic that will likely only accelerate
  • Improve time utilization
    • Address critical failures faster with alerts and location information
    • Schedule preventative maintenance based on actual runtime to avoid surprises and costly failures while on rent
  • Increase dollar utilization
    • Reduce costly, unnecessary field calls
    • Reduce costs of expediting service parts with proactive preventative maintenance
    • Realize full rental rate more often by:
      • Avoiding rate discounts or free days for unplanned disruptions and downtime
      • Back rental rates with actual runtime info
      • Charge a premium for end-user text alert service

Your view

The L.B. White Onei3 dashboard allows you to:

  • View heater data including GPS location, runtime (hours), heater operation status (on/off), call for heat status (active/not active), fuel flow status (open/closed), and telematic voltage (volts)
  • Tailor critical alert recipients
  • Setup maintenance alerts.

The platform can be accessed by any internet-connected device including desktop computers, mobile phones, and tablets. One person in your company will be assigned as the administrator that can grant other company users access as needed.

Frequently asked questions

Can I retrofit my existing heat fleet?

Retrofit kits are not offered because heater alterations would involve complex sheet metal and wiring modification difficult to execute in the field.

Why can’t I buy stock modules and do this myself?

There are many modules and telematics hardware options available off-the-shelf that are the same or very similar to the LINK module. The difference is the software within the LINK module. It is preloaded with software containing custom programming developed to interface with L.B. White heaters signals specifically.

Can I just pay for wireless data transfer service during the heat season?

Contracted providers require a one-year service commitment. The penalties to turn service on-and-off far exceed the yearlong fee so annual subscriptions are offer most economical.

Where can I download the LINK app?

LINK is not technically an app. Since the platform is web-based, it can be accessed from any internet-connected device including desktops, tablets, and mobile phones (much like an app). Save to your mobile device home screen for quick access.

Can I turn heaters on/off with LINK?

No, LINK does not allow remote control like some consumer home climate control apps (e.g., thermostats cannot be adjusted, heaters cannot be turned on/off).
