External Plug-Ins



Engine Monitoring


An external OBD-II module is available to interface the i50 with vehicle engine computers. This module works with most OBD-II gasoline engines, and some J1939 diesel engines. Engine data is continuously monitored, and any alerts are sent over the wireless network to the DataGate server. DataGate will forward these events to dispatch screens and email addresses.

The following data is monitored:

  • RPM
  • Coolant Temperature
  • Vehicle Speed (for odometer calculations)
  • Diagnostics Codes

AES-256 Encryption

For applications where data security is paramount, we can supply a special version identified as the Tracker i50C. Together with the High Security version of DataGate, this solutions uses AES-256 encryption to encrypt all data packets.



The i50 provides an ideal platform for SCADA applications.


Highway Message Signs

An i50-VMS firmware variant has been developed for remote control of highway message signs using NTCIP and other protocols.
