4.4 Connecting and Installation
Read this manual before using your VT310 and check if all parts are included in the packaging box.
4.4.1 Ensure that your VT310 has a working SIM installed.
- Check that the SIM has not run out of credit (test the SIM in a phone to make sure
it can send and receive SMS)
- Check that the SIM Lock code is turned off
- If you require the function of sending an SMS location report to the authorized
phone number when it makes a call to the VT310, please make sure the SIM installed
supports displaying caller ID.
Before inserting SIM card, cut off the power for VT310.
Install SIM Card
- Unscrew and remove the front cover of VT310.
- Insert the SIM card by sliding it into the card slot with the chip module facing to the
connectors on PCB.
- Put back the front cover and screw it up.
4.4.2 Antenna Connection
Connect the GSM Antenna to VT310.
Connect the GPS Antenna to VT310.
- GPS antenna is used to receive satellite signals in the sky. It should be fixed to face
the sky (to be placed under the windscreen is recommended) and should not be
covered or shielded by any objects containing metal.
4.4.3 Find a suitable place inside the car for installing VT310. Wiring connections
must be firm and reliable and the joints should be wrapped with insulating tape
tightly. The unused electrical wire should be properly insulated.
Check if all wirings have been connected correctly and then connect the AVL unit to
the motor power.
Make a missed phone call the VT310 using a mobile phone to check if the calling can
go through and the VT310 replies with an SMS indicating longitude, latitude, speed
and date.

9.2 Detecting Lock Status of Car’s Door or Trunk (Car Boot).
Power supply
Lock Controller
White
lock
Input 1 or Input 2 or Input 3
unlock
Lock Switch
When the lock is opened, there will be negative triggering to Input 1 or Input 2 or Input 3, then an SMS alarm
will be sent to the authorized phone number or a GPRS alarm will be sent to the server (please refer to the
GPRS Command 0x9999 in <GPRS Communication Protocol>).
9.3 Connecting with Switch Sensors
The SMS alarm will be sent to the authorized phone number.
Input 1 or Input 2 or Input 3
White
Switch Sensor
9.4 Ignition Detection
Input 4 or Input 5 (positive triggering) can be used for ignition detection. The detection alarm will be sent to
the server via GPRS. Please refer to <GPRS Communication Protocol> Alarm Command 0x9999 for more
information.
Power for ignition
Input 4 or Input 5
Ignition Switch
Battery
9.5 Analog Input (AD1 and AD2)
Input voltage should be 0~6V. Please refer to <GPRS Communication Protocol >for more information for
AD1 and AD2 data.
For example:
094506.000,A,2232.5412,N,11404.6919,E,0.00,,290709,,*12|1.7|110|0000|00AA,0267
AD1 is 0x00AA and AD2 is 0x0267.
Voltage Formula: Input Voltage=(AD*6)/1024
0x00AA=>170(decimal)=>(170*6)/1024=0.99609375V(voltage)
0x0267=>615(decimal)=>(615*6)/1024=3.603515625V(voltage)
- 13 -
Application Example - Fuel Level Sensor
Fuel level sensors supplied by us are resistance-type sensors with output
resistance: 0-200Ω(ohm).
For the circuit shown on the right picture, if VCC is 12V, R should be
200Ω(ohm) and if VCC is 24V then R should be 600Ω(ohm) to make the
input range to AD1 or AD2 is 0-6V.
Below formula is for calculating the fuel percentage left for this fuel level
sensor:
Percentage Left =
AD value
1024*2 – AD value
* 100%
Note: The value must be converted into decimal, for example, 0x0267 is
615 in decimal.
10. Speeding Alarm
Command: W******,005,XX
Description: Turn on speeding alarm. When the tracker speeds higher than the preset value, it will send an
SMS to the phone number for SOS.
