Compact datalogger includes wireless connectivity based on GSM/GPRS module
Telit Wireless Solutions and Danlaw Incorporated announced that Danlaw’s DL750 includes Telit’s ultra-compact GSM/GPRS cellular module, the GE865-QUAD. The product is a self-contained consumer installable data collection device. Danlaw and Telit who cooperated in a number of products before, are now expanding connected automotive DataLoggers into new and existing application areas including insurance (UBI and PAYD), teen tracking, loyalty programs, fleet tracking, mobile resource management (MRM), roadside assistance, vehicle diagnostics, and government & military.
The new DL750 is a second-generation OBDII plug-n-go product with a number of market-anticipated enhancements. The product uses Telit’s GE865-QUAD module, which is fully certified by U.S. mobile network operators. Telit also collaborated closely with Danlaw to ensure the DataLogger is FCC, PTCRB and carrier approved when it arrives in the market.
The new DL750 incorporates feature sets designed to address specific application area requirements including driver-scoring apps, ticket forgiveness monitoring, accident forgiveness monitoring and roadside assistance. It is packaged in an ultra-compact enclosure measuring 43 mm x 46 mm x 23 mm. It is enhanced with features including, hybrid & electric vehicle support, enhanced three-axis accelerometer and assisted A-GPS. These enhanced features are aggregated to a solid base-feature set which includes self-contained enclosure – no external antennas, ignition ON/OFF detection, cost effective data transmission, three-axis accelerometer with 13-bit sampling, self-normalizing accelerometer, 50-channel GPS with A-GPS support, over-the-air re-flash (FOTA), enhanced anti-tampering and real-time event capture & transmission.
The GE865-QUAD is the ideal solution for embedded cellular applications where small size and energy efficiency are crucial. Measuring only 22mm x 22mm x 3mm, the GE865-QUAD is significantly smaller than most cellular modules in the industry. It features a better power consumption profile than previous Telit modules and the majority of current competing products. Because of its extremely compact form factor and a rich set of features, including an on-board Python interpreter, it is well positioned for vertical application areas such as telemetry, mobile asset tracking telematics and telemedicine.
