Teltonika FM5500 description

Teltonika FM5500 is an advanced GNSS terminal that works with GPS and GLONASS and has a GSM connectivity. This device can be useful for fleet management and logistics companies.

FM5500 can store more than 150.000 records with the vehicle status and transmit it via GSM networks. High-sensitive GPS receiver has 32 channels and can work with two SIM cards.

This GPS tracker is rather functional with its 8 inputs and 4 outputs for managing of the vehicle devices. The device is equipped by voice communication system.

Package content

Package content depends on order code, and can be customized by customer needs, but the standard package contains:

  • FM5500 device
  • Input and output power supply cable with 2×10 connection pins
  • 4 screws for assembling device
  • GPS/GLONASS antenna
  • GSM antenna
  • USB cable
  • Port 1/2 cable
  • Port 3 cable
  • Card with link to drivers and configurator

Location and tracking

FM5500 model is embedded with GPS chip and also it has the support of GLONASS. It doesn’t support Assisted GPS (A-GPS) technology. As the back-up, when no satellites signals are available, it uses Cell ID location (also known as LBS-tracking).

The tracking mode is flexible configured: by moving every 100m, and every 60 sec, and on turning on 30 degrees by default. When there is no movement (detected by “Ignition” status), tracker sends data every 180 seconds.

Mobile networks

Teltonika FM5500 has a quad-band GSM 2G module so it can be operated all over the world.

Power supply

FM5500 uses voltage range 10-30V, which makes possible to install it both on cars and trucks. Device also features an optional built-in rechargeable backup battery. When fully charged it ensures about 2,5 hours of device operation (in normal conditions).

 

“Ignition” status

There is a virtual “Ignition” flag in FM5500 which is determined by either:

    • External power voltage – when the power level falls below a certain configured level (by default 13V), the “Ignition” is considered to be OFF, otherwise – ON.
    • Digital Input #1 – if there is positive signal on DIN #1 of the socket, the “Ignition” flag is ON.
    • Acceleration sensor – when the built-in accelerometer detects movement, the “Ignition” flag is ON.

“Stop/Movement” mode

Teltonika FM5500 determines whether vehicle is on move or stopped by one of three methods (configurable by user):

Method Moving Stopped
by Board Voltage If board voltage exceeds certain level (configurable, 13V by default) If board voltage is lower than a certain level
by Acceleration Internal accelerometer detects movement Internal accelerometer does not detect movement
by GNSS GNSS is fixed and speed is above 5 km/h GNSS is fixed and speed is below 5 km/h  or GNSS is not fixed

Two sleep modes

FM5500 is able to go to Sleep mode after configurable Sleep timeout. This timeout (defined period) starts counting when device is in STOP mode. After timeout is reached and all conditions for sleep mode are met, device goes to normal sleep or deep sleep mode:

Sleep mode

While in sleep mode, FM5500 sets GPS receiver to sleep mode but GSM/GPRS module stays active, in Sleep mode power usage can be decreased to save vehicle’s battery, because GPS module is turned off.

FM5500 can enter sleep mode if ALL of these conditions are met:

  • FM5500 has to be configured to work in Sleep mode;
  • Start-up timeout has elapsed (5 minutes after every restart of the device);
  • No movement by accelerometer is detected;
  • Ignition (DIN1) is off (driven logic low);
  • USB cable is not connected.

FM5500 exits sleep mode if ONE of the following conditions are true:

  • Movement by accelerometer is detected (depends on accelerometer start settings);
  • Ignition (DIN1) is turned on (driven logic high);
  • USB cable is connected;
  • HIGH or PANIC priority eventual record is detected;

While being in sleep mode FM5500:

  • cannot save periodical or eventual records;
  • send data to server;

Deep sleep mode

While in deep sleep mode, FM5500 sets GPS receiver to sleep mode and turns off GSM/GPRS module (it is not possible to wake up device via SMS), therefore records with last good coordinates are being saved and sent to AVL server if configured (GSM/GPRS module is turned on to send data and after turned off). Depending on two configurable parameters, send period and min period, in Deep Sleep mode power usage can be decreased to save vehicle’s battery.

FM5500 can enter deep sleep mode (standby mode) if ALL of these conditions are met:

  • FM5500 has to be configured to work in Deep Sleep mode;
  • Start-up timeout has elapsed (5 minutes after every restart of the device);
  • No movement by accelerometer is detected;
  • Ignition (DIN1) is off (driven logic low);
  • Send period is more than 60 seconds (Data Acquisition Mode settings);
  • USB cable is not connected.

FM5500 exits deep sleep mode if ONE of the following conditions are true:

  • Movement by accelerometer is detected (depends on accelerometer start settings);
  • Ignition (DIN1) is turned on (driven logic high);
  • USB cable is connected;
  • HIGH or PANIC priority eventual record is detected;

While being in deep sleep mode FM5500:

  • can save periodical or eventual records;
  • send data to server;

Harsh driving behaviour

FM5500 features “Green Driving Scenario” that helps to inspect driver about harsh driving. Scenario continuously monitors: accelerating force, braking force and cornering angles. When these parameters exceed configured thresholds, Green Driving event is generated and sent to server.

To prevent generating false events, harsh acceleration and harsh braking is monitored only when following conditions are fulfilled:

  • “Ignition” flag (see above) is turned on
  • Vehicle speed is equal or higher than 10 km/h

Harsh cornering is monitored only when following conditions are fulfilled:

  • “Ignition” flag (see above) is turned on
  • Vehicle speed is equal or higher than 30km/h

Local and remote management

Teltonika FM5500 tracker can’t be controlled over GPRS, though it supports firmware updating via GPRS (FOTA). However, there is a wide list of SMS commands in a ASCII  format, on which device always replies back. In particular, Server address and port, APN settings can be applied remotely with SMS. To decrease the amount of SMS required for configuration SMS in binary format can be also used.

You can also configure FM5300 from a PC using proprietary software (Teltonika Configurator) and standard USB-cable which is included into package.

Profiles

FM5500 has 4 profiles saved in Flash memory of the module. Every profile has a list of parameters, which enables FM5500 to operate in different modes while using different profiles. The easiest way to understand what is a profile is to compare it to a list of instructions that are written for different cases. You are allowed to setup up to 4 different module behaviours. Global parameters contain settings that are common for all 4 profiles. This means that if FM5500 is set to call to predefined number, you will be able to call it while using any profile.

Profile 3 is default profile for FM5500 when SIM 1 Operator mode is enabled in Global parameter „Profile change on“. It is always loaded on the very first start-up and further profile switching is proceeded after operator scan or I/O element changes. Switching between profiles (changing behaviour) can be performed by GSM Operator (mostly used for roaming applications), or by Profile switching depending on I/O Event (on I/O value changing).

When DUAL SIM operating mode is used, profile switching becomes dependent on SIM switching algorithm, which is based on GSM Operator lists of both SIM cards.

LED Indication

FM5500 has two status LEDs:

  • Status LED: indicates GSM/GPRS mode
  • Navigate LED: indicates GPS reception

Teltonika FM5500 is tightly integrated with this software platform.

Automatic activation

The software platform supports automatic device activation by sending SMS commands, which includes all parameters in one command, applying APN settings, server address and port, as well as recommended tracking mode. These SMS commands can be sent in two formats:

  • Binary format (recommended) – one SMS to configure multiple parameters
  • Text ASCII format – one SMS to configure one parameter only

Binary format is recommended because it requires less messages to send from  platform to device. When using binary format it is just 2-3 SMS to send, and in text format it’s more than 20 messages in total. However, depending on the SMS gateway and GSM operator binary SMS can not be delivered, and it requires to use Text messages.

Before the activation process please make sure that your device is switched ON and is located in the place with good GPS signal reception. You also need to keep the device with initial factory settings, in particular:

  • Do not set any password, keep them clear (as by default)
  • Do not set any master number prior to the device activation
  • Do not set local Time zone, it must be UTC+0h (as by default)

Manual configuration

If you experience issues with the SMS delivery from the platform to device in your country, you can setup device manually by using Teltonika Configurator software.
