7.1 Sending Records Using GPRS
Sending information using GPRS service is primary function of the device. Record contains
information such as: time, GPS position, vehicle's status information and other event data.
Content of the record is fully configurable using device setup.
All records can be classified in two categories:
 Records with regular GPS position data, generated by intelligent sending algorithm.
 Asynchronous records containing event data.
7.1.1 Sending Regular GPS Data
Tracking vehicle using electronic maps is possible only if device periodically sends GPS
position data. This period is determined by passed time, traveled distance and intelligent
sending algorithm.
Device built-in expert system takes many parameters into account to resolve best time for
sending GPS position data. Main goal is to minimize amount of sent data and to have
optimized track on map. Device will send GPS data if following conditions are met:
 As soon as device receives first valid GPS position (only on startups, and in case of
losing GPS signal in tunnels, garages and etc.),
 Vehicle stops moving (ignition key on),
 Vehicle starts moving (ignition key on),
 If maximum sending time from last sent position expires (ignition key on),
 If maximum distance from last sent position has been traveled (ignition key on),
 If intelligent sending algorithm criteria is met.
Record with regular GPS data includes time information, vehicle status, distance traveled from
device start up (wake up from power save).
7.1.2 Sending Events
Device sends event data when event occurs. Record with event data includes: event ID, time
when event occured, GPS position where event occurred, vehicle status, and event data. Event
will be sent when:
 Change of state on digital inputs occurred,
 Change of state on digital outputs occurred,
 Over speed occurred,
 Over rpm occurred,
 Vehicle battery under voltage is detected,
 Measurement packet is ready to be sent,
 Device responds on remote commands,
 Changing state of the device (reset or waking up from power save mode)…
7.2 Calculation of Distance Traveled
Using GPS data, device calculates distance traveled from first start-up to present position in
meters. Traveled distance is sent as part of regular GPS data records and with ignition on/off
message. Total error of traveled distance calculation algorithm depends on GPS reception, and
in cases when GPS signal is continuous can be less then 2%.

Fox Lite 4.0 User Manual
7.3 GPRS or USSD Data Sending
Fox Lite device can send data using GPRS or USSD service. Only one service can be selected
at a time. Selection is made by device configuration, locally using cable and configuration
software or remotely by remote command.
USSD service is only active if vehicle is in roaming networks and if USSD service is enabled
on device.
7.4 Data Logging
Fox Lite device logger has capacity of more than 60.000 records. Logger can be configured to
work in three different modes:
 Real time sending. In this mode no record is logged unless GPRS signal is weak, GPRS
is disabled or there is no response from the server.
 Data logging while in roaming. Device can be set up to log data records while device is
in roaming. Device will stop logging and send logged data as soon as vehicle enters
home GSM networks.
 Sending log periodically. Device can be set up to send log with predefined time period
or at predefined day times.
7.5 Reading Data From Vehicle CAN Bus With Additional External Device
Fox Lite device can be connected to vehicle CAN bus. This connection will enable reading
telemetry data directly from vehicle board computer. For this connection, additional device is
needed. The purpose of additional device is to read data from vehicle CAN bus and to transfer
it to Fox Lite. For information about additional device, and for supported vehicle list, please
contact Fox technical support.
Depending on vehicle type, model and year of production, following parameters can be read

interface can be connected to Fox Lite RS-232 port. Fox Lite supports reading of following
OBD-II data: engine temperature, engine RPM, vehicle speed, fuel level, accelerator pedal
position, engine load, intake air preasure and fuel consumption. Actual set of data depends on
vehicle model and type.
OBD-II data can be read only when vehicle ignition is turned ON. When ignition is OFF
Geneko OBD-II interface will go to sleep (to low power consumption).
17
Fox Lite 4.0 User Manual
Data read from OBD-II are sent to server in form of package. Package format and content is the
same as when device reads data from vehicle CAN bus or FMS and it is described in previous
chapter. User can set up message sending period from 10 sec to 600 sec. Exceptionally, current
vehicle speed, engine temperature, fuel level and engine RPM will be transmitted in regular
messages in fields predefined for those values.
7.7 Fuel Level Measurement
Fox Lite device can measure fuel level in vehicle tank using fuel measurement sensor that is
already built in vehicle or using aditional fuel level sensor with analog or RS232 output. In
order to measure fuel level properly, device should be connected and parametrized according to
following instructions.
7.7.1 Fuel Measurement – Using Existing Fuel Sensor
When using existing fuel sensor, one of the best positions for connecting fuel measurement pin
is directly on fuel measuring sensor (i.e. buoy). The fuel measuring sensor wire is usually
brought to instrument board or it is connected to board computer of the vehicle. Since these
positions are usually closer to the position where Fox Lite is installed it is recomended to
connect it there.
When existing vehicle fuel sensor is used, there is one additional parameter that has to be set in
order to have precise measurement. That is „Fuel compensation“. This flag can have two states,
it can be turned ON or OFF. If turned OFF, device will measure and send voltage measured on
fuel level sensor. However it is possible that output voltage of fuel level sensor depends on
vehicle battery voltage. In that case compensation should be turned ON, and device will
automaticaly compensate change on fuel level sensor output according to vehicle battery level.
If this option is used, „Fuel reference(full tank) [mV]“ parameter should be set up to 12000 or
24000 depending on nominal vehicle battery voltage.
7.7.2 Fuel Measurement – Analog Mode
DC voltage from the fuel-measuring sensor is proportional (or vice versa) to fuel level. Voltage
range with full and empty tank has to be within 0 to 17 V.
Fox Lite device supports measurement on up to two fuel sensors simultaneously. In order to
use fuel level measurements, device has to be set up to use Analog Inputs (pin 5 and optional
pin 1 of Connector 1) for analog fuel measurements. Measured fuel values are sent to server in
separate packets of data.
NOTE: If user wants to use two fuel sensors(analog inputs), user needs to request that prior to
ordering, because some hardware modification must be done on device before delivery.
7.7.3 Fuel Measurement – Digital Mode
Fox Lite device supports one digital fuel level sensor with RS232 interface. There are three
types of digital fuel level measuring devices that can be used with Fox Lite:
1. Omnicomm LLS20160
2. RCS ES2
3. Technoton DUT-E-232.
Other fuel level sensors can be added upon customer request, based on large quantity order.
18
Fox Lite 4.0 User Manual
For connecting Fox Lite to digital fuel level sensors, Fox Lite Serial Cable has to be used. This
cable will provide RS232 connection with RS232 voltage levels to Fox Lite device.
In order to set up device for operation with desired fuel level sensor, adequate settings must be
done. Parameter „External device“ must be set on „3-fuel meter“ option, also parameter „Serial
port speed“ must be properly configured.
There are fuel level sensor manufacturer applications for setting fuel sensors address and this
part is independent of Fox Lite device. Also, automatic data sending on fuel sensors, must be
turned on.
Device has possibility to calculate and send to server average value of fuel sensor temperature.
Temperature samples are received from digital fuel level sensor. To enable this option device
must be configured for fuel measurement with digital fuel level sensor and parameter “Sending
fuel temperature“ must be enabled.
NOTE: If options for analog and digital fuel measuring are turned on at the same time, device
will read and send data from digital fuel sensors.
7.7.4 Fuel Measurement in Power Save
Fox Lite device has an option for fuel measurement when device wakes up from Sleep power
save state to send “WDT start“ event (see chapter 7.19 ). When this option is enabled, and after
waking up from Sleep power save state, device starts with fuel measurement. When
measurement is completed, fuel packets will be sent to server and device will be returned to
Sleep power save mode. This option can be configured to work with fuel packet and up to two
independent packet of analog fuel sensors. Also values for fuel packet can be taken from CAN
bus.
To enable this option, parameter „Fuel send in power save“ must have proper value. Value of
this parameter must be equal to sum of values that represents corresponding function. Fuel
packet corresponding with value 1, packet of analog fuel sensor 1, on analog input 1,
corresponding with value 2, packet of analog fuel sensor 2, on analog input 2, corresponding
with value 4. For example if you want to send fuel packet and packet taken from analog input
1, then parameter „Fuel sent in power save“ must be set to 3. Other measurement parameters
also must be properly configured as is described in previous subchapters.
Fuel measurement in power save has two additional functionalities. First one is fuel deficit
detection and second one is power supply for fuel sensor to reduce power consumption in sleep
power save mode.
To enable fuel deficit detection function, adequate parameter, like “Max fuel difference”, “Max
AD1 difference”, “Max AD2 difference”, must have value greater than 0, and must match the
value that is in the corresponding data packet. When device detects fuel deficit it sends event to
server and also it can send SMS to phone numbers which are specially defined in phonebook.
Also, fuel deficit detection is active in Standby state of device (when ignition key turned off),
and when ignition key is switched on and if vehicle don’t move.
To enable power supply for fuel sensor, set some GPIO as GP output configuration, and enter
„2080“ for „Output event code“ parameter. On this digital output connect relay which will turn
on or turn off power supply of fuel sensors.
7.8 Fuel Flow (Consumption) Measuring
Fox Lite device can measure fuel consumption using additional fuel flow meter. Technoton
DPT77 and Technoton DFM 250D fuel flow meter are supported in device firmware, but any
other flow meter that has pulse digital output with maximum frequency of 20 Hz can be used.
19
Fox Lite 4.0 User Manual
Fuel flow meter output has to be connected to Digital GP input_1 or Digital GP input_4 pin of
Connector 1. For corresponding pin, choose „fflow“ for GPIOX parameter.
Fox Lite will count number of pulses in 10 s period. When 20 values are collected, special
message that contains all measured values will be sent to server.
7.9 Engine RPM Measurement
Fox Lite device can measure vehicle engine RPM if such signal is avaliable on vehicle
electrical instaltion.
Engine RPM measurement is performed by counting the pulses generated with each rotation of
the engine. Number of pulses per single rotation depends on the type of engine RPM sensor. In
order to provide exact value for RPM, parameter „RPM multiplier“ has to be set up. This
parameter defines number of impulses per rotation multiplied by 10. This parameter can be set
up in range from 1 to 65536. Value is determined by measuring the frequency on RPM wire.
Measured frequency should be multiplied by 600 and then divided with current RPM (read on
vehicle instrument).
In order for RPM measurement to function properly, the signal for RPM must meet the
following conditions:
1. Voltage VL must be less than 0.5 V,
2. Voltage VH must be more than 4 V,
3. Time intervals tL and tH must be longer than 0.05 ms.
U

RPM signal has to be connected to Digital GP input_1 or Digital GP input_4 pin of Connector
1. For corresponding pin, choose „RPM“ in GPIOX parameter.
7.10 Driver Identification Using iButton
Fox Lite device has driver identification feature using iButton keys. iButton keys are unique for
each driver. There are two possible ways to use this feature. In first case device will react on
any iButton code, and in other it will react only if corresponding iButton code is in device's
white list.
iButton functionality can be turned on in iButton tab by setting „iButton identify“ option on. If
user wants to use iButton with verifying code in white list, „iButton verify“ option should also
be set on.
When driver leans his iButton key to the reader, Fox Lite device sends iButton code to the
server via GPRS. By unique iButton code, operater knows which driver uses the vehicle.
Driver logs off the system in the same way as he logs on. If driver forgets to log off the system,
Fox Lite device will log him off automatically 30 sec after turning ignition key off.
For visual indication of the log on - log off status there is LED that can have one of following
states:
20
Fox Lite 4.0 User Manual

Turned off if driver is logged on
Blinking in refresh rate of 2 s if driver is not logged on
 Blinking in refresh rate of 0.5 s for 4 s after successful log on
Additonaly, iButton can work together with engine block function. To activate this feature,
enter „out“ for „GPIO1“, „2050“ for „Output 1 (low) event code“ and „1-ibutton“ for „Engine
block trigger“ parameter. If activated, engine block function is triggered either by change in
driver identify state (deblocked on login, blocked on logout) or by manual setting of selected
output (logic high – blocked, logic low – deblocked). The manual switch is available through
SMS command SO0. GPIO2 can also be used for this feature, but in that case connection
description for engine block is different than explained in this document.
Restrictions:
 Default engine state is unblocked. If driver identification is disabled, engine will remain
unblocked.
 Engine can not be blocked manually while contact key is present, due to a possible
safety issues. In this case, command message will be ignored until contact key is
switched off for at least 30 sec.

NOTE: This picture is relevant only for iButtons purchased from Geneko company
7.11 Driver Identification Using RFID card
Fox Lite device has driver identification feature using RFID cards. RFID card code is unique
for each driver. To use this option, SL032 Mifare RFID reader is required. SL032 RFID reader
can be connected to Fox Lite using device serial port. RFID functionality can be turned on by
setting „External device“ parameter on „4-rfid“.
Fox Lite can be configured to verify code in white list or to proceed with operation without
code verification. RFID white list can be created or modified using Fox Configurator aplication
or by remote commands which are described in chapter 10.2. Use of white list can be turned on
or off by setting „RFID identify“ parameter.
When driver leans his RFID card to the reader, Fox Lite device sends RFID card code to the
server via GPRS. By unique RFID card code, operater knows which driver uses the vehicle.
Driver logs off the system in the same way as he logs on. If driver forgets to log of the system,
Fox Lite device will log him off automatically 30 sec after turning ignition key off.
For visual indication of the log on - log off status there is LED that can have one of following
states:
 Turned off if driver is logged on.
 Blinking in refresh rate of 2 s if driver is not logged on.
 Blinking in refresh rate of 0.5 s for 2 s after successful log on or log off.
Additonaly, RFID can work together with engine block function. To activate this feature, enter
„out“ for „GPIO1“, „2050“ for „Output 1 (low) event code“ and „2-rfid“ for „Engine block

trigger“ parameter. If activated, engine block function is triggered either by change in driver
identify state (unblocked on login, blocked on logout) or by manual setting of selected output
(logic high – blocked, logic low – unblocked). The manual switch is available through SMS
command SO0. GPIO2 can also be used for this feature, but in that case connection description
for engine block is different than explained in this document.
Restrictions:
 Default engine state is unblocked. If driver identification is disabled, engine will remain
unblocked.
 Engine can not be blocked manually while contact key is present, due to a possible
safety issues. In this case, command message will be ignored until contact key is
switched off for at least 30 sec.
7.12 Vehicle Battery Under Voltage Detection and Protection
When device detects low vehicle battery voltage (lower then the value specified in “Protection
level [mV]“ (LVP) parameter) the „Main battery voltage“ event is generated. When normal
vehicle battery voltage restores the „Main battery voltage“ event will be generated again.
Additionaly, device supports over discharge protection options to protect vehicle's battery from
over discharging. Over discharge option is active when ignition is switched off and vehicle
battery voltage is lower then the value specified in “Protection level [mV]“ (LVP) parameter.
Fox Lite will exit protection state if ignition key is switched on or when battery voltage is
restored. Device will wake up from protection state every 10 minutes to check if vehicle battery
voltage is restored.
7.13 Geo-fencing
Fox Lite device has Geo-fencing feature. This feature provides to user real time information
from device if vehicle enters or leaves predefined zones.
By shape zones can be rectangular or circular. Rectangular zone is defined by two corner
points. Circular zone is defined by center and radius.
By purpose, zones can be multiple or single. Single zone will be erased from device zone list as
soon as it is breached. Multiple zones can be erased only by remote commands.
Zones can be triggered on entering the zone, exiting the zone or both. Up to 70 Geo-fencing
zones can be stored in device memory.
7.14 Remote Parameter Setup
Fox Lite parameters can be set up remotely from cell phone, using SMS. Device accepts
commands only from phone numbers who are specially defined in phone book or number
defined as “Server Phone Number”. Command format for remote parameter change is given in

7.16 Remote Firmware Update
Firmware in Fox Lite can be updated remotely. Firmware can be updated while device is in
regular operating condition. During that time device will stop with regular work.
Firmware updating procedure can be initiated by remote command using SMS message or from
server using GPRS. Device parameters are not going to be changed after performing remote
firmware update. In case new firmware is using new parameter (one that did not exist in
previous firmware version), one will be created and will be set to default value.
Time for firmware update varies from 2 to 5 min depending on GPRS signal quality and size of
files that had to be downloaded from update server.
NOTE: It is strongly recommended not to send messages or make phone calls to device while it
is in firmware update procedure. Also, although it is possible, don’t send multiple
commands in SMS message with firmware update command.
Firmware update results on feedback SMS message:
Update ok (N) – firmware successfully updated
Update error (N) – error during firmware update
N is internal state code and has no importance for users.
7.17 Parameter (Device Configuration) Backup in SIM Card Memory
Device keeps parameters (configuration) in its own nonvolatile memory. Also, copy of all
parameters is kept in SIM card memory. Regarding SIM card memory capacity, phonebook,
iButtons white list, geo-fencing zones and RFID white list will also be stored in SIM card
memory. Before SIM card is inserted in device, user can setup device to restore (overwrite)
parameters which are in device nonvolatile memory with ones from SIM card memory. After
user inserts SIM card and powers up device, parameter restore will take place as it is described.
Once restore is done, it will not take place again until user again set up device to restore
parameters from SIM card.
23
Fox Lite 4.0 User Manual

7.19 Advanced Power Save Option
Power save function is designed to reduce power consumption of the device when the vehicle
is not in use. After parking the vehicle (when ignition key is switched off) device will go to
power save mode. Power consumption in this mode is reduced.
NOTE: If internal battery needs to be charged, power consumption will still be significant until
battery is fully charged.
There are 9 parameters that affect Power Save mode:
 Protection level [mV]. Vehicle battery over-discharge option is active when ignition
key is switched off and vehicle battery voltage is lower then the value specified in
“Protection level [mV]“ (LVP) parameter.
 Power save time [min]. After ignition key off, device will go from PowerOn state to
Standby state immediately. Functionality on Standby state is same as PowerOn state.
From Standby state device will go to Sleep state when time defined by “Power save
time [min]” parameter expired. In Sleep state GPS module is active if “GPS always
on“ parameter is enabled. In Sleep state device doesn't send any records using GPRS
but GSM receiver is in stand by mode, allowing reception of incoming voice calls and
SMS messages. When device is in Sleep state, Power Save mode is active. If
parameter “Power save time [min]” has value 0 power save options are inactive.
 Power save wake up time [min]. Device wakes up from Sleep state and go to Send
state when time defined by “ Power save wake up time [min]“ parameter expired. In
Send state device turn on all modules and sends GPS position to server like “WDT
start“ event. After successfully sent position device go back to Sleep state. If device
can not send position during time defined by “Sending timeout [s]” parameter, it will
save position to log memory and go back to Sleep state.
 Hibernation enable. If “Hibernation enable” parameter is enabled, device can go to
Deep Power Save mode. Otherwise Deep Power Save mode is disabled.
 Hibernate time[h]. If “Hibernation enable” parameter is enabled, device will go to
Hibernate state when ignition key is switched off and time defined by “Hibernate
time [h]“ parameter expires. In Hibernate state, only GSM receiver is in stand by
mode, allowing reception of incoming voice calls and SMS messages. Other modules
are powered down. When device is in Hibernate state, Deep Power Save mode is
active.
 Sending timeout [s]. In Send state device will keep trying to send positions until time
defined by “Sending timeout [s]“ parameter expires.
24
Fox Lite 4.0 User Manual

WDT event period in hibernation [min]. Device periodically wakes up from Deep
Power Save mode and sends “WDT start” event to server. This period is defined with
“WDT event period in hibernation [min]” parameter.
 GPS always on. “GPS always on” parameter enables or disables GPS module in
Power Save mode. If GPS module is disabled, power consumption in Power Save
mode will be significantly lower, but upon leaving Power Save mode, device will
take some time to fix valid GPS position.
 Wake on GPIO change. If this option is enabled, device will wake up from Power
Save mode when change on GPIO pin is detected.
When ignition key is switched on, device will go to the PowerOn state. When device is
powered only from internal back-up battery, PowerOn state is active.

are default, roaming and auxiliary sending profiles. In device configurator software, those
parameters are defined in Sending, Roaming Profile anad Auxilary Profile tabs respectively.
If vehicle is in home network, device will use parameters defined in Sending or Auxilary
Profile set of parameters. Which set of parameters will be used, depends on current Geo-fence
status (in or out) and “Geo-fence zone sending profiles” parameter (see chapter 9).
If vehicle is in roaming network, then device will use set of parameters defined in Roaming tab.
7.24 C-Drive
C-Drive (Control Drive) option gives information about driver's behavior during the drive. Fox
Lite device has integrated shock/acceleration sensor. This sensor measures 3D vehicle
acceleration and sends this information as 3D acceleration vector to server. Parameter “C-Drive
Cycle [s]“ defines time period for generating 3D acceleration vector. To every 3D acceleration
vector, device will assign current RPM value (if RPM value is available). When device collects
10 values of 3D acceleration vectors (and corrsponding RPM valuse) it will send them to server
in single GPRS message.
26
Fox Lite 4.0 User Manual
For using C-Drive option, device should be mounted in vehicle according to following
recommendations:

Device Connection in Vehicle
8.1 Device and GPS Antenna Position Selection
Fox Lite device should be positioned on place where humidity is in specified range, with no
heat sources and moving parts near device. GPS antenna and main cable also should not be
near any moving parts. Device should be attached to vehicle using plastic clamps.
Fox Lite device has built-in (integrated) GSM antenna. Therefore, device should be placed in
position where GSM signal will not be unacceptably reduced.
GPS antenna must be placed into horizontal position, i.e. the antenna upper surface has to face
the sky. The material over the GPS antenna should not be metal, since this would reduce or
completely degrade GPS signal quality. The best position for installing GPS antenna is under
plastic parts of instrument board while keeping it as close as possible to the surface.
8.2 Main Power Supply Connection
Main power supply for device is usualy taken from vehicle's battery. It is connected to
corresponding pin of the Connector 1 (see chapter 5.2 ). There is 2A fuse inside Fox Lite
device. Regardless, it is recommended to connect main power supply through some of the
vehicle’s fuses. Fox Lite 4.0 device is designed for operation with vehicle battery voltages of
12 VDC and 24 VDC.
Ground (pin 4 of Connector 1 – BLACK wire) should be connected to vehicle battery negative
end. (or vehicle metal chassis if it is connected to ground).
NOTE: when performing this action please take all precaution measures so vehicle battery
positive end does not cause short circuit with metal chassis of the vehicle.
8.3 Input and Output Connection
Fox Lite has up to 6 digital inputs on Connector 1 (one is reserved for ignition key signal - pin
2 – GREEN wire). Signals from switches or other digital signals actuators in the vehicle can be
connected directly to these inputs. Except for pin 6 of Connector 1 – all digital inputs can
sustain voltage in range from -100 V to +100 V.
Fox Lite has up to 2 digital outputs. Both of them are multiplexed with digital input pins. One
digital output is designed as positive driven pin (pin 7 of Connector 1 – YELLOW wire; it
gives positive voltage equal to vehicle battery voltage when turned on, or it is in high
impedance state when turned off). Second digital output is designed as negative driven pin: pin
3 of Connector 1 – BROWN wire. It connects to the ground when turned on, or it is in high
impedance state when turned off.
Both digital output pins are fused with 500 mA current capacity fuses with autorecovery. For
larger consumers additional relays should be used on output pins.
8.4 Connecting Device for Operation
After installation of GPS antenna, connecting power supply and input and output signals to
Main connector cable, Fox Lite device can be put into operation. The following procedure
should be strictly applied:

11 Remote Parameter Change and Command Protocol
Fox Lite can receive commands and parameter change messages remotely from mobile phone
(or SMS gateway) using SMS messages or from server using GPRS.
11.1 Remote Parameter Change and Commanding Using SMS
Commands can be sent by mobile phone or SMS gateway using SMS. Device will accept
commands from SMS even if GSM parameters in device are not set.
In order to change parameters or to command device using SMS, SIM card in Fox Lite must
have enabled incoming SMS mesages.
Fox Lite will process received SMS message and notify server about some actions.
When Fox Lite receives and executes command via SMS, it will send response to sender's
phone number via SMS. If Fox Lite receives commands FW, DR, RS, it sends response “Xstarted“ when command is activated (X is required command). If Fox Lite receives commands
MKP, MKF, DEL, DL it sends response “X-ok“ when command is correctly executed (X is
required command). After settings parameters, Fox Lite will send SMS with current value of
changed parameters. For example, if Fox Lite receives SMS: GE:0, Fox Lite returns GE=0 to
sender.
NOTE: If parameter can have Enabled/ON or Disabled/OFF value, to set Enabled or ON
value send SMS command X:1, or to set Disabled or OFF value send SMS command X:0,
where X is remote command for that parameter.

12.1 Test Mоde – Vehicle Identification (ID)
This parameter stands for the vehicle identification number. Since this parameter is very
important, you can check in this way if it is set up properly without entering device’s menu.
12.2
Теst Mode – Signal Level (S)
GSM signal level parameter can have value from 0 tо 31. Value 0 is obtained when the signal
is very weak, аnd value 31 when the signal is extremely strong. For successful data sending it
is necessary that the signal has value above 6, however it is desirable that this value is about 20.
On device installation, it is recommendable to measure the signal level at the position where
the installation is performed before the antenna is installed into the vehicle. Then, the position
of antenna should be chosen so that the signal is not weaker for more than 5 measuring units
after positioning of the antenna.
Signal level parameter can also have value 99, error level. Value 99 is obtained when the signal
level is so low that its level cannot be detected.
12.3 Test Mode – GSM Status (G)
This parameter has GSM network ID value.

12.4 Test Mоde – GPS Data Validity (GPS)
There are 3 parameters that describe quality of GPS data:
 Fix number can have values 1, 2 or 3, where 1 is no fix, 2 is 2D fix and 3 is 3D fix.
 Number of satellites shows how many satellites are used for getting GPS position.
This number can have values from 0 to 12. Greater number of satellites indicates more
accurate GPS position.
 Estimated HDOP error can have values from 1 (minimal GPS error) to 50 (GPS
signal is not valid)
12.5 Test Mоde – The Number of Unsent Records in RAM Memory (B)
In case when device for some reason is not able to send data to server, it will store it in its
RAM memory where up to 528 Bytes of unsent records can be stored. When this memory is
close to full, its content will be moved into Flash memory where more than 60.000 record can
be stored. Number of unsent records in RAM mеmory could be seen in test mode. If the buffer
state is not 0 and if the number of messages in it is increasing, that means that device, for some
reason, is not able to send messages to server. There are several possible reasons:
 Device, for some reason, is not connected to GSM network,
 Device is connected to GSM network, but the signal level is too low,
 Server parameters are not set up properly,
 Server is not ON or it does not have Internet access.
NOTE: Amount of data in logger should be checked too (parameter L in test mode) because
from time to time data from RAM is moved to logger memory.
12.6 Test Mode – The Number of Unsent Records in Logger Memory (L)
Besides RAM memory, device has permanent Flash memory for storing unsent records. This
memory is called logger memory and it’s capacity is more than 60.000 records. Parameter L
shows logger memory occupancy measured in KB.
12.7 Test Mode – Vehicle Battery Voltage (V)
This parameter stands for current vehicle battery voltage (power supply) value expressed in [V]
and battery voltage, value expressed in [V]. As per this parameter it is possible to check if
device is properly connected to power supply and if the power supply voltage value is within
specified range for device operation.
12.8 Test Mode – Engine RPM (R)
This parameter represents current value of the engine RPM.
12.9 Теst Mode – Fuel Tank Level (F)
Fuel Tank Level parameter represents relative current value of fuel level in tank. This value can
be measured using device analog input (from analog sensor), device serial input (from digital
sensor) or CAN/FMS data depending on device configuration and available sensors.

12.10 Теst Mode – Fuel Flow (FF)
Fuel flow parameter represents current fuel flow (number of pulses counted in last 10 seconds).
12.11 Test Mode – GPS Module WDT (W)
In case that GPS module stops sending data, it will be restarted. Parameter W represents
remaining time to GPS module reset.
12.12 Test Mode – Current Power Mode (P)
Device can be in various power modes. They are all listed below. Test parameter P represents
current power mode.
WAKE – State immediately after device startup (or wake).
ON – Active state (ignition key turned on).
STANDBY – State between ignition key off and entering SLEEP state.
SLEEP – This is power save mode. Device will enter SLEEP mode after ignition key off and
predefined time elapsed (time is defined by UT2 parameter).
FILTER – State after WAKE, before valid GPS position is fixed.
SEND – State after FILTER. In this state GPS position is fixed and WDT event sent to server.
TOHIB – State before hibernation.
FHIB – Hibernation state.
DEBOUNCE – State when vehicle battery low level is detected, before entering LOWV state.
LOWV – State while vehicle batery is in low level.
12.13 Test Mode – Input Pins State
This message shows input pin states. If input pin state is ON, corresponding bit in message will
have value 1. If input pin state is OFF, corresponding bit in message will have value 0.
I = 1 0 0 0 0 1
GP input_5 state (1-on, 0-off)
GP input_4 state (1-on, 0-off)

GP input_1 state (1-on, 0-off)
Ignition key input state (1-on, 0-off)
12.14 Test Mode – Output Pins State
This message shows output pin states. If output pin state is active, corresponding bit in message
will have value 1. If output pin is not active, corresponding bit in message will have value 0.

13 Appendix
13.1 Working without ignition pin
Ignition pin can be in following modes:
a) Connected to ignition signal
b) Connected directly to car battery (12/24V)
c) Left floating
Mode “a”: this mode is highly recommended. The device will be forced to enter selected
power save mode immediately after the engine is turned off. Selected power saving mode is
user configurable, and it may or may not put device to sleep or hibernation. The device will
wake up very quickly after ignition key is moved from neutral position.
Mode “b”: the device will never enter power save mode. Being always active it will draw
more power from vehicle battery.
Mode “c”: the device will be awaken from the power save mode by mechanical vibrations.
These vibrations are picked up by the shock/acceleration sensor while the vehicle is moving.
The device will enter power save mode after timeout measured from the last shock event. This
timeout can be defined by user.
NOTE: Ignition key on/off events will not be sent in modes “b” and “c” for obvious reasons.
13.2 Setting Up Panic Button
To set up panic button, first select digital inputs pin to use. Connect one panic taster pin to
connect to selected Input X pin. If you select GP input_1, GP input_3 or GP input_5 (pins with
negative trigger) then connect second pin of panic taster to GND. If you select GP input_2 or
GP input_4 (pins with positive trigger) connect second pin of panic taster to ACCU+. Set
Input_X event code to 1070 (otherwise no panic event will be sent to server).
13.3 Setting Up and Connecting Engine Block
Fox Lite can prevent vehicle engine from starting by controlling relay which is breaking signal
from starter wire. To activate relay you could use either output_low or output_high pin. Relay
must have protective diode between pins 86 and 85. Following illustration shows how to
connect relay to vehicle and Fox Lite when using output_low pin.
 Fox Lite GP Digital output_x pin of Connector 1, with low active signal connect to
relay pin 86.
 Relay pin 85 connect to ACCU+ or ignition line (it is better to use ignition line in order
to prevent vehicle battery consumption when vehicle is not in use).
 Cut starter wire and connect one end to relay pin 87a and other end to relay pin 30.
 Enter Output_Low Event Code 2050 (engine block code).
