GPS Antenna

GPS Antenne is fixed and the round part is facing the satelite!

Ignition is OFF

LED’s are on and permanet power is available on the power supply cable

Ignition is ON

An record with ignition on is written in the data tool.

Ignition OFF

An record with ignition off is written in the data tool.

The whole trip is recorded in the datatool.

All ignition changes are recorded.

Accessoires

Accessories only work with the right tracking device and are not included in the standard delivery.

Anschluss Privatschalter (Beispiel für negativen Eingang)

The device has a second input (open collector => ground must be switched) what allows to add a private switch!

Connecting Digital Inputs

Most external signals (alarm buttons, door sensors, ignition, etc) return two states: high or low voltage. Digital inputs should be used to read this information. The figure below shows how to connect alarm button, door sensor, etc.

Different tracking units have different numbers of Digital Inputs. See above for finding the right pin for digital inputs. In cases when sensor output signal is negative an additional relay has to be installed to convert negative signal to positive.

GPS Tracking Units have various digital inputs that can process simple status signals (0 = off, 1 = ON).

Other examples for vehicle signals that could be connected to digital inputs (depending on the vehicle and how you can connect): Ignition, Door/hood open/closed, Seat belt on/off, Fuel tank lid open/close, 4-wheel drive on/off, light on/off.

Interaction between the tracking box digital inputs and the vehicle signal needs skilled professional people (in a workshop) AND the electrical plan of the vehicle. Most workshops know about how and where to connect a digital input to the vehicle. In rare cases (or depending on the vehicle brand and model) you will need a special CANBUS interface to get the vehicle signal safely from the vehicle without interfering the CANBUS. If you are not sure, consult a professional workshop or dealer or search for the vehicle electronical switching plan online:

 Tests:

The driver identification is managed by the tracking device firmware or the software (refer to the UserManual). The test is based on software-side logoutmode=2 (driver identification required with every new trip).

Action

Result

Ignition is ON without ibutton

You should hear the buzzer at least 5x

No driver is shown in the software

Place the button on the reader

The buzzer noise stops

The driverID is shown in the software

Connecting iButton driver identification with buzzer and relais

To prevent interferences we recommend to connect the buzzer only via an automotive relais (12 or 24 volt). If the buzzer is too loud, you can use isolation tape around it.

Connecting Outputs

 

 

The digital outputs can be activated using special SMS commands that can be requested when necessary.

The usage of outputs can lead to dangerous situations and needs precaution. The provider EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OR LIABILITIES that could be caused by connecting outputs. The customer bears the risk of any consequential damages.

 

A possible configuration:

The relay is connected with the OUT 1 cable, that its pulls , if the output is active (in other words when ground is coming over the OUT 1 cable)

If the relay is active, the ignition will not work.

If the relay is not active, the ignition will work.

If the tracking device is not working or would be damaged, the ignition would work!
