1. Introduction
The GMT100 is a powerful GPS locator designed for vehicle or asset tracking. It has
superior receiver sensitivity, fast TTFF (Time to First Fix) and supports Quad-Band GSM
frequencies 850/900/1800/1900, its location can be monitored in real time or be
periodically tracked by a backend server or other specified terminals. The GMT100 has
multiple input/output interfaces that can be used for monitoring or controlling external
devices. Based on the integrated @Track protocol, the GMT100 can communicate with a
backend server through the GPRS/GSM network to transfer reports of Emergency,
geo-fence boundary crossings, low backup battery or scheduled GPS position as well as
many other useful functions. Users can also use GMT100 to monitor the status of a
vehicle and control the vehicle by its external relay output. System Integrators can easily
setup their tracking systems based on the full-featured @Track protocol.
This device complies with part 15B, part 22 and part 24 of the FCC rules. Operation
is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) this device may not cause harmful
interference
(2) this device must accept any interference, including interference
that may cause undesired operation.

SIM Card Installation
3.2. Switch the set on/off
There are two methods to Power on GMT100:
- GMT100 external power turned on.
- Connect GMT100 to PC with user cable.
When the external power or USB cable power be removed,GMT100 will switch to internal
backup battery and keep on running. When internal backup battery is exhausted, GMT100
will give a report and then turn off.
Note:
1-External power and User USB power can be present at same time.
2-For USB port current limitation, when configuring GMT100 by user cable, please let
backup battery on using.

GMT100 User manual
There is one method to turn off GMT100.
-Remove the external power and USB power.
-Press the reset key.
Note:
GMT100 PWR LED will off.
3.3. Reset Key
There is a reset key behind the SIM card cover. If the power wire is connected to vehicle
power, the system will reboot when the key is pressed; if the system is powered by the
backup battery and the power wire is not be connected to vehicle power, the system will
shutdown when the key is pressed.
Note:
When you finished the firmware upgrade, please press the reset key to reboot the system
before configuring the terminal.

3.4. USB connector
There is a USB connector on GMT100 which is beside the SIM card. With the USB
connector and the DATA_CABLE_M, user can configure the system or download
firmware. As long as the DATA_CABLE_M is plugged in, the system will boot.
3.5. Power Connection
The red wire is power wire and the black wire is ground wire. The input voltage range for
this device is from 8V to 32V. The device is designed to be installed in vehicles that
operate on 12V or 24V systems without the need for external transformers.

Figure 4.
Typical Ignition Detection
The white wire is used for ignition detection. It is strongly recommended to connect this
wire to ignition key “RUN” position as shown up.
An alternative to connecting to the ignition switch is to find a non permanent power source
that is only available when the vehicle is running. For example the power source for the
FM radio.
Ignition signal can be configured to start transmitting information to backend server when
ignition is on; and enter power saving mode when ignition is off.
3.7. Digital Inputs
There is a general purpose digital input which is the blue wire on GMT100 User Cable,
and it is a negative trigger. The digital input is recommended to support panic button
function.

There is an analog input which is the green wire on GMT100 User Cable, and the analog
input voltage range is from 0 to 32V. The following diagram shows the recommended
connection.

Typical Analog Input Connection
3.9. Digital Outputs
There is an output which is the brown wire on GMT100 User Cable. This output is used to
drive a siren and the maximum drive current is 750mA. When the siren output is enabled,
the voltage on the siren output is determined by the system power level, if the system
power is 12V, then the siren output voltage is 12V.

There is a built-in cut relay on GMT100, and it is a NO type relay which maximum
switching voltage is 16VDC and maximum continuous current is 30A. On GMT100 user
cable one 18AWG yellow wire is connected to the cut relay NO contact and the other
18AWG yellow wire is connected to the cut relay COM contact. In certain instances the
two wires will be connected together.
