(Example: if fuel level drops by 10% or more, it will be recognized as fuel theft). Note: In order to use this option, you must configure fuel sensor properly.
  • Clear detected sensor cache - clears all detected device sensors.

Sensors

This section allows to add GPS device sensors and assign them to objects. There are many types of sensors. When configuring a sensor, the choice of sensor type depends on used device and its principle of operation. For more details refer to GPS device user manual.

To add sensors to your object please perform following steps:

  1. Go to Settings menu located in Top panel, select object and click on  edit object button.
  2. In Edit object window click on Sensors tab. In left bottom corner press + button.

Import/Export sensors - import/export buttons are located in the bottom of the window.

Sensor properties window will appear.

Sensor

  • Name - sensor name.
  • Type - sensor type that is suitable for the specific task. Note: for correct sensor type refer to GPS device user manual.
    • Digital input - displays device sensor value 1 or 0 (enables input fields to enter sensor state text).
    • Digital output - displays device sensor value 1 or 0 (enables input fields to enter sensor state text).
    • Driver assign - this sensor type allows to receive string from RFID or iButton devices. Received string will be checked in system. As a result, information will be seen, which driver is using vehicle. Note: Auto assign must be set in object settings.
    • Engine hours - receives engine hours value.
    • Fuel level - this option requires to specify result type (value or percentage) depending on device information result. For more details refer to GPS device user manual.
    • Ignition (ACC) - displays device sensor value 1 or 0 (enables input fields to enter sensor state text).
    • Odometer - receives odometer value.
    • Passenger assign - this sensor type allows to receive string from RFID or iButton devices. Received string will be checked in system. As a result, information will be seen, which passenger is using vehicle. Note: Auto assign must be set in object settings.
    • Temperature -
    • Trailer assign - this sensor type allows to receive string from RFID or iButton devices. Received string will be checked in system. As a result, information will be seen, which trailer is connected to vehicle. Note: Auto assign must be set in object settings.
    • Custom - allows to enter any necessary sensor information. For more details refer to GPS device user manual.
  • Parameter - sensor parameter, refer to sensor parameters section.
  • Show in popup - sensor will be shown in object details popup.

Result

  • Type - option depends on chosen sensor type.
    • Logic - allows to enter text depending on sensor value.
    • Value - this option requires to specify result units of measurement (for example: kg, liters...) and formula (if applicable).
    • Percentage - this option requires to specify result lowest and highest values.
  • Units of measurement - value depending on sensor type (example: liters, galons, volts...)
  • If sensor "1" (text) - allows to show custom text if result value is 1 (examle: if sensor is used to monitor engine state, than if engine is running, text could be ON).
  • If sensor "0" (text) - allows to show custom text if result value is 0 (examle: if sensor is used to monitor engine state, than if engine is not running, text could be OFF).
  • Formula - in some cases need to perform device result calculations to get precise value. Note: for more details refer to your GPS device user manual. In formula field you can multiply, divide, add, subtract, use brackets. X means value which was sent by device.

Depending on sensor and result type parameters you will be able to enter lowest and highest values. This option allows to configure value range. Example: if need to monitor vehicle fuel level and GPS device is sending volts instead of real capacity, we need to know voltage of empty and full fuel tank (example: empty tank: 3 volts, full tank: 10 volts, according to these values: lowest value: 3, highest value: 10). 

  • Lowest value - lowest sensor value.
  • Highest value - highest sensor value.

Calibration

This section can be used with Fuel level and Custom sensor type. Calibration allows you to set precise parameters of the sensor. Widely used to calculate fuel tank readings or convert sensor voltage to temperature values.

Example 1: Fuel tank

Different places Inside of the fuel tank may be wider or narrower and to get more accurate data you should use calibration.

In order to perform a more precise measurement of fuel tank, it is necessary to measure fuel tank sensor voltage width different fuel level. The system allows you to set up to 50 points, the more points you specify, the more accurate readings you will get.

Directions: Drain the fuel tank, write down the fuel sensor voltage readings, fill the tank with 5 litres/gallons of fuel, make a note of the fuel sensor voltage readings and so on until the tank is full.

Program will calculate fuel amount according to fuel sensor values.

Example of fuel sensor results:

  • Empty tank: 2 volts
  • 5 litres in tank - 3 volts
  • 10 litres- 4 volts
  • 15 litres- 5 volts
  • ...
  • 60 litres- 14 volts

Follow these steps to enter data correctly:

  • Choose sensor type: Fuel level
  • Choose result type: Value
  • Enter units of measurement: litres or galons
  • In calibration X field: 2
  • In calibration Y field: 0
  • Click add button
  • In calibration X field: 3
  • In calibration Y field: 5
  • Click add button
  • In calibration X field: 4
  • In calibration Y field: 10
  • Click add button
  • ...
  • Save sensor

Example 2: Temperature sensor

If temperature sensor sends volts instead of temperature values, then it is possible to convert results.

In this case we need to know temperature sensor voltage at its lowest and highest states.

  • Lowest: 3 volts - 0 degrees
  • Highest: 7 volts - 40 degrees

Program will calculate exact temperature according to set values.

Follow these steps to enter data correctly:

  • Choose sensor type: Custom
  • Choose result type: Value
  • Enter units of measurement: (according to example, you should use degrees)
  • In calibration X field: 3
  • In calibration Y field: 0
  • Click add button
  • In calibration X field: 7
  • In calibration Y field: 40
  • Click add button
  • Save sensor
