Vehicle Components for Jaltest Telematics
J-TCU (Jaltest Telematics Control Unit) is easily installed and collects FMS data and registers all the events of interest in the vehicle, in order to send them to the server afterwards, where they will be processed.
J-VOD (Jaltest Vehicle On-Board Diagnostics) allows the user to perform diagnosis sessions remotely. Connected to the diagnosis socket (OBD), the system can interact with the control units (ECU) present in the vehicle to request the relevant information: measurements in real time, parameters or extended error codes.
J-TCUr (Jaltest Telematics Control Unit Rugged) is designed for installations in trailer and semi-trailer. J-TCUr locates thetrailer/semi-trailer and can be configured to register any event characteristic of each business, to send it to the server.
J-TDO (Jaltest Trailer Diagnostics On-Board), is an on-board diagnosis system for towed vehicles, connected to the braking system (EBS) of the trailer or semi-trailer. The system is able to obtain all the characteristic information of the trailer: measurements in real time (pressures, voltages, wear of the brake pads, etc.), operation data (ABS interventions, anti-roll, travel information), next maintenances, mileage, and also able to perform a complete diagnosis, including the extended information of the error codes.
