The modular FlexiCard can be customised to suite any Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, RF, GSM or satellite telematics application.
|Compact rugged housing||Made of sturdy UV resistant plastic the housing clips together for easy assembly, and has 2 convenient mounting tabs.
Dimensions: 125mm x 65mm x 30mm
|Connector||24 pin connector
A basic harness is supplied as standard with the G100.
See the G100 user manual for connector pin details.
The G100 passes stringent automotive power “load dump” tests to ensure that it will continue to operate in the harshest electrical systems. A built-in self-resetting fuse makes installation easy and safe.
|Operating Temperature||-30°C to +85°C 1
1) On external power.
Below 0°C the standard internal backup battery’s ability to deliver sufficient power to operate the cellular modem is reduced. Below 0°C and above +45°C the internal backup battery will not be charged as a safety precaution due to dangers associated with charging batteries at extreme temperatures.
For battery powered tracking in extreme temperatures enquire about our Remora tracker with extended temperature range battery options.
|High sensitivity GPS||UBLOX MAX8 GPS module
Supports concurrent GLONASS and other GNSS systems
|Concurrent GPS and GLONASS||The G100 supports position tracking using both the American GPS satellites and the Russian GLONASS system concurrently. This results in amazingly fast and accurate tracking with double the number of satellites available for use.|
|Low noise GPS amplifier||GPS signals are boosted by a special low-noise amplifier (LNA)
This allows the G100 to operate where normal units will fail to receive GPS signal
|2G or 3G (NextG)||The G100 can be manufactured for specific markets around the world with cellular modem modules approved by all the major networks
*enquire for other bands and LTE / 4G options
|Certifications||CE, A-Tick, ICASA, others in progress|
|Iridium SBD||Global coverage – anywhere in the world.
The G100 can be fitted with an Iridium SBD module that allows it to communicate via the Iridium satellite network. The G100 will automatically switch over to using Iridium communications when out of range of the cellular networks.
|WiFi||Save SIM data costs.
The G100 can be fitted with a WiFi FlexiCard – allowing it to communicate on a WiFi network.
|Internal Antennae*||Internal GPS and cellular antennae
Having the primary antennae inside the housing makes for very simple and quick installation. The G100 has had its antennae tuned by the top laboratories to ensure optimal performance.
*Iridium modem and other wireless FlexiCards may require an external antenna
|Backup battery||The standard 800mAh LiPo backup battery allows the G100 to operate when external power is removed for up to 4 days, depending on the amount of movement
Optional HUGE battery pack of 1800mAh available on special order
|5 x Digital Inputs||1 x Ignition line
4 x digital inputs with configurable pull-up / pull-down
Numerous configuration options including switches, duress/panic alerts, pulse counting
|2 x Digital Outputs||2 x switched ground digital outputs, easily wired up to switch external lights, relays, buzzers, sirens, motors and other devices
Can be used to immobilise a vehicle
|Internal Buzzer||Audible alert without requiring the installation of an external buzzer. Can be used for speeding alerts, harsh driving alerts, reminders to swipe RFID tags, error conditions and other events|
|Diagnostic LED||The diagnostic LED makes it easy to see if the device is operating correctly|
|3 axis accelerometer||The 3 axis accelerometer allows the G100 to detect harsh driving events (harsh acceleration, braking and cornering) and this information can be used to monitor driver behaviour and unsafe driving.
It also allows the G100 to go to ‘sleep’ when not moving, resulting in extremely low standby current.
|iButton||Communicate with common one-wire iButton devices|
|RS232||RS232 receive and transmit allow the G100 to communicate with external RS232 devices. These can include fuel monitoring, Garmin FMI, tyre pressure monitoring
The RS232 interface can also be used to configure the device and to test and debug.
|Switched 5V out||The G100 can provide power to external peripherals via this 5V power line, allowing for easy installation and doing away with the need for additional external power supplies.
Maximum current: 300mA
|DMCAN peripheral port||Digital Matter has a range of peripherals that connect to the G100 via the DMCAN peripheral port. Peripherals such as the RFID Driver ID reader, 5 digit keypad, data console and RF gateway use the DMCAN port.|
|Flash memory||The G100 has sufficient memory to store over 50,000 records in its flash memory. Normally the data will be sent to the server immediately but if the device is out of range then there is sufficient space to ensure that no data is lost – for many weeks of driving!
The flash memory is also used to store parameters, GPS aiding data, accident data, driver lists, geo-fences and other important information that needs to be securely stored.
|FlexiCard Expansion Slot||The G100 has one FlexiCard slot. This card slot allows the device to be upgraded to support extra functionality:
· Iridium satellite modem
· WiFi data transfer
· Radio gateway
· Additional RS232 ports
· Digital Matter can design custom cards by request
The innovation of FlexiCards allows the G100 to be the most flexible telematics device available on the market.
|6 x FlexiCard IO||The FlexiCard slot is connected to 6 pins on the G100 connector. This allows the cards to provide functionality to the outside world via the connector pins.|
|Garmin FMI||Coming soon|

|Auto-APN||Auto-APN allows the G100 to analyse the SIM card and select the correct APN details from a list that is pre-loaded in the device’s firmware. This means that the G100 can be shipped world-wide without requiring specialist setup for SIMs.|
|Text Message Setup||The G100 can also be sent text messages to setup the APN, server and other details|
|Multi-APN||The G100 can be configured to roam across multiple networks and to automatically use the different APN details for the roaming networks.|
|AssistNow Offline||The G100 will track successfully where other devices just give up.
This fantastic technology allows the GPS to predict which satellites are in orbit above it and to dramatically reduce the time-to-first-fix of the GPS, and the overall performance of the GPS, especially in ‘urban canyon’ or forested environments.
|Flexible Logging Parameters||The G100 trip logging is flexible and can be configured to log based on a variety of parameters including:
|Accident and Rollover Detection||The G100 uses the built-in accelerometer to detect high G impacts such as accidents and rollovers and reports these events to the server for emergency alerting.|
|Harsh Driving||The G100 automatically calibrates its built-in 3 axis accelerometer and uses this to detect harsh driving events:
These events are logged in the G100 along with additional event statistics that allow back-end server platforms to perform sophisticated driver profiling and scoring.
|Accident Data||The G100 keeps a second-by-second “blackbox” recording of valuable GPS and accelerometer data for a two hour window. This data can be automatically uploaded to the server when an accident is detected, or it can be requested manually.|
|Driver Identification||The G100 supports a number of ways to identify a driver:
|Driver Lists||The G100 can be updated from the server with lists of Drivers that are allowed to drive the vehicle that it is installed in. When a driver or operator registers on the G100 it will check the Driver List to see if that person is authorised to drive the vehicle. The list also includes information about the driver such as whether they can perform supervisor functions.
The G100 can be installed to immobilise a vehicle and only allow authorised drivers / operators to drive it, or to annoy an unauthorised driver with a loud buzzer.
|Geo-Fences||The G100 has the capacity to hold hundreds of geo-fences that can be downloaded to it from the server. The G100 can use this geo-fence information to:
|Emulated Ignition||This setting allows the G100 to determine that a trip has started based on accelerometer and GPS data and to automatically set the ‘ignition’ input on the device to emulate the ignition line.
This means that the G100 can be installed with the option of not wiring in the ignition line and ‘emulating’ the ignition based on movement.
|Run Detect||This setting allows the G100 to monitor the system voltage and to detect changes in the voltage that indicate if the engine is running or not.|
