NEW VDO SMARTTERMINAL FOR DOWNLOADING TACHOGRAPH DATA
With the introduction of the new VDO SmartTerminal, a new reader for driver cards and download keys, manufacturer Continental replaces the DLT Pro download terminal. The new SmartTerminal has a 7-inch touch display and transmits the data by Wi-Fi.
The VDO SmartTerminal is a stand-alone solution that does not require an operational PC in the background to read driver cards and download keys. The device is designed to accept first- and second-generation driver cards. It can be placed on a table or mounted on a wall, either in the common room, or in the reception or entrance areas. This provides more flexibility for the drivers and managers of fleets in which the drivers themselves read out the data from the mass memory and driver card at any time, independent of office hours. When the driver card or download key is inserted into the download terminal, the data is shown on the display and then downloaded to the device. Downloading starts immediately and optical or acoustic signals inform the user if any manual action is necessary. If a language has been preset on the driver card, the terminal’s menu opens automatically in that language. The data is transmitted from the VDO SmartTerminal through Wi-Fi
to the company network. Besides the familiar USB and ethernet interfaces remain unchanged. With the Automatic Uploader transfer tool, the data becomes available in the VDO TIS-Web fleet management software. The revised software design of the VDO SmartTerminal corresponds to the latest TIS-Web DMM 5.0 version.
