Electronic Logging Device

Looking for outstanding ELD hardware?

If you want to develop, integrate, or resell an hours of service (HOS) solution for the ELD mandate and you need high-performing, easy-to-integrate, and easy-to-manage hardware, you’ve come to the right place.

Pacific Track’s ELD hardware is optimized to provide a highly reliable, feature-rich solution at an attractive cost.

Our deeply experienced team, which has designed telematics devices that are deployed in millions of vehicles, developed this hardware specifically for ELD applications.

Pacific Track’s ELD hardware provides vastly superior functionality compared to a generic interface dongle.

Using built-in GPS, we reduce the burden on the processor and battery in the tablet or smart phone that is running the ELD app.

In tandem with internal flash memory storage, built-in GPS also ensures that, per ELD rules, hours of service events are captured even if the tablet or smart phone is not present in the vehicle.

At the same time, our hardware distinguishes itself as being more economical and easier to manage than similarly feature-rich cellular-based ELD hardware. Using the tablet or smart phone hosting the ELD app as the cellular device, instead of having an internal cellular modem in the Pacific Track ELD hardware, offers multiple benefits, including a reduction in initial hardware cost and ongoing operating costs, as well as decreased technical risk and complexity, and reduced business risk (obsolescence).

Hardware features include:

  • J1939, J1708, and OBD-II (CAN) interfaces
  • Built-in GPS
  • Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
  • Built-in flash memory (1+ month data storage)
  • Accelerometer
  • Intelligent odometer management
  • Small form-factor polycarbonate enclosure with high quality molded cable
  • OTA firmware updates (including bulk updates) via web backend
  • Simple-to-implement SDKs for Android & iOS

Our SDKs provide HOS events, which has two big benefits:

  • Integrators do not have to understand low level communication
  • Since vehicle data is processed right in the ELD device, there is less burden on the processor and battery on the tablet or smart phone that hosts the ELD application

Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) is extremely reliable and requires no user interaction. Bluetooth LE (or “BLE”) is not the same type of “classic” Bluetooth that is used for car audio and with which you may have experienced dropped communication or other problems. With BLE, you do NOT do pairing in your phone’s or tablet’s settings. Instead, the connection is established right inside the HOS app.

Pacific Track not only designs and produces great hardware but is also easy to work with – we provide excellent technical documentation and very responsive & helpful support.

We developed our own protocol stacks, so if there’s any implementation issue, we fix it ourselves on your schedule rather than relying on a third-party to do it on their schedule.

We also have a remote debugging tool that enhances our ability to react quickly to any problems discovered in the field.

We offer a standard high quality cable as well as a variety of alternative cable configurations and adapters.

Excellent, industry-leading third-party white box and private label ELD application software is available for resellers who do not want to develop or integrate their own applications.
