Power Line Carrier Technology transmits digital data onto the vehicles power line and allows tractor to trailer communications without adding any new wires.
The PLC4TRUCKS PLC Gateway Bluetooth module provides a bi-directional link for the J1708 device to access PLC messages on the tractor and trailer ABS wire.
The Bluetooth link will transmit the data to a smartphone or tablet to comply with the requirement for 389.65 for HOS reporting. The module can directly read and program the PLC Identifier/Tag and thus allow wireless devices to read tractor or trailer IDs and establish a link.
The unit allows off-the-shelf mobile or fixed application platform options including: iphone/ipad; Blackberry/playbook; Motorola; Android and more.
The unit also keeps a personal record of activities for HOS and CSA reports and has routing functions.
