Ruptela‘s ECO 4+ is a 4th generation low-cost, low power consumption basic tracking device.
It determines its location by a GPS/GLONASS signal and transfers data to servers via the GPRS cellular network. The device offers:
Vehicle monitoring and control
Security and safety alerts
Heavy-duty fleet tracking
The Eco 4+ is a standard GPS/Glonass tracking device designed for vehicles of different types. Its purpose is to monitor the vehicle’s location, route, mileage, speed and other parameters.
The Eco 4+ is also designed for driver identification and monitoring the fuel quantity in the tank, cargo temperature, and driving style.

The FM-Eco4+ has an integrated battery which enables the device to independently send data during up to one hour after disconnection from a power source. The integrated battery also serves as a protection against theft. The jamming-detection functionality allows to block the engine of the vehicle.
The device built-in protections:
Short circuit protection
Reverse polarity protection
Electrostatic discharge protection on USB and on 1-Wire
Overcurrent protection on 1-Wire power
Electrostatic discharge protection on SIM card slot
A GPS signal receiver chip is an essential part of any tracking device.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is used to pinpoint a device’s location anywhere on earth.
The basic concept is that GPS satellites send signals to the earth, containing their position and the time the signal was sent. The receiver chip, which is a part of the tracker, takes this signal and analyses it.
Once the device has received a clear signal from at least four satellites, it can calculate its position.
Note: receiving GPS signals only permits the device’s owner to tell its location. Tracking requires the device to send its calculated position to an additional endpoint, such as a server.
In the case of IneTrack, this data is sent using the mobile network (cellular network), therefore all devices have a mobile data connection (which is enabled by a SIM card).
If this connection is temporarily lost, the device can cache its data, and may send it once the connection is re-established, so no data loss may occur.
A Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) card is a small plastic card with an integrated circuit.
Having a SIM card enables the device to wirelessly communicate with a cellular network.
This network is used for all data traffic. The trackerdevice will regularly send its calculated position (along with additional data) in small packets to a server, where the contents of these packets are analysed.
To ensure privacy and reliability, IneTrack uses a Virtual Private Network.
IneTrack SIM cards use M2M communication. You may choose either a roaming or a non-roaming subscription. If you opt for a non-roaming SIM card and you leave your country, the tracker will function as normal. It will uploads all of its data when you return to the original network.
Similarly, if a signal loss happens, the device will continue to record, and cache the data. When a clear signal has been re-established with the network, it will upload the cached data.
Note: the devices may also work with the owner’s existing SIM card if it has an active mobile data subscription.
The private business journal displays segments marked private by drivers.
The private business journal works like the standard journal, however, it also displays trip segments marked private by a driver.
By using an additional switch installed in the vehicle, the driver has an option to mark an ongoing trip private. This method is favored when drivers want to use the company’s resources for their own personal needs.
A compatible tracker and a toggle switch is needed for the usage of the Business-private journal.
