Digi International has introduced the Connectport X5 range of compact telematics devices with optional satellite functionality.

The telematics devices incorporate cellular, satellite, global positioning system (GPS), Wi-Fi and vehicle area network (VAN) wireless technology in one device.

Suitable for fleet management and asset tracking applications, the Connectport X5 range provides remote connectivity to mobile assets via cellular or satellite networks and was developed using satellite technology gained through the acquisition of Mobiapps.

Connectport X5 telematics devices provide flexible wide-area networking connectivity, supporting cellular, Wi-Fi, GPS, VAN and satellite functionality.

Cellular and satellite connectivity provide instant, always-on communications, allowing companies to switch networks.

Wi-Fi provides a cost-effective way to transfer less critical/time-sensitive information, such as logs, firmware upgrades and larger files, across low-cost private or public Wi-Fi networks.

Wi-Fi can also be used to network in-vehicle or near-vehicle Wi-Fi-enabled devices such as vehicle displays and handheld mobile devices.

Onboard GPS enables location tracking and geo-fencing.

For customers choosing the optional satellite version, the Connectport X5 also includes a dome enclosure that optimises radio-frequency performance and that simplifies and reduces the cost of cabling and installation.

The Connectport X5 range supports VANs with Digi’s XBee 802.15.4/Zigbee or point-to-multi-point 2.4GHz radio technology.

This allows users to deploy low-power sensor networks within and around the vehicle to monitor tires, reefer units, door latches, temperature sensors, cargo sensors, radio-frequency-identification readers and other critical asset points.

Also included is an integrated three-axis accelerometer that detects movement and driver behaviour in accident conditions.

The product range also features advanced power management as well as Canbus, J1708 and J1939 support.

Connectport X5 customers have access to the Idigi wireless M2M solutions bundle, which includes the hosted software and services necessary to configure and manage device deployments.

Idigi solutions allow customers to extract remote asset data and transform that information into real value via the Idigi platform.

The Connectport X5 range is programmable in Idigi’s application framework.

Customised hardware and software development is also available through Digi’s Spectrum Design Services.

The Connectport X5 range includes the brick-style Connectport X5 and dome-/roof-mounted Connectport X5 Fleet.

Both products are encased in IP67 enclosures and are SAE1455 certified.

The Connectport X5, Connectport X5 Fleet and Connectport X5 Fleet with satellite are available now.
