IPETRONIK is offering the new communication module COMgate V3 for wireless data transmission in accordance with 4G and LTE standards for its M-LOG V3 data logger. The hardware system is complemented by the IPEcloud web portal, which supports high-speed and secure remote data transmission through to smart fleet management.
The M-LOG V3 is a highly efficient data logger for validating and testing development vehicle fleets. It features up to twelve measurement inputs for CAN, LIN, Ethernet, FlexRay and a wide range of protocols such as XCP, CCP, OBD, J1939, etc.
Thanks to COMgate V3, users can now control their vehicle fleets operating worldwide from afar. The new hardware module is compatible both in terms of its dimensions and also the software with existing M-LOG data logger fleets and older versions of the M-LOG operating system TESTdrive.
This allows existing M-LOG customers to convert to the new COMgate V3 without exchanging the logger. In addition to Wi-Fi, the COMgate V3 offers global modem support, which permits rapid and simple access to measurement data and measurement configuration updates.
The modem features a mini-SIM card slot, can be equipped with modules and can – depending on the regional place of installation – be selected for North America, EMEA or APAC/South America.
For Wi-Fi transmission, the standards IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n are covered. For supporting mobile terminal devices, e.g. for a display connection to tablets, the COMgate V3 itself can set up an access point. On the basis of remote data transmission via Wi-Fi or modem, which is supported by all IPETRONIK data loggers, the IPEcloud offers various services for controlling a data logger fleet.
These include the management of the incoming measurement data in addition to rapid status monitoring and remote updating of the logger configuration. IPEdrive constitutes the central element of the web portal. IPEdrive manages the incoming measurement data and records measurement configurations for the data logger upload.
In this data area, users will also find the min/max statistics files with compressed measurement data, which they can use to record the operating state of a vehicle and logger on the basis of IPEfleet.
