Solution Type: Hardware Accessories & Add-Ons
Category: In-Vehicle Sensors & Electronics
Device Requirements: GO6, GO7
Minimum MyGeotab Plan: ProPlus
Current Status: Released
IOX (Input / Output Expanders) plug directly into the GO device and are used to extend the GO device to peripherals in your vehicle. Leveraging the CAN networks that run on the GO device, IOXs can be daisy-chained together meaning multiple peripherals can be added to the GO device. This adds flexibility to your implementation, even after installation, and means the Geotab solution can grow as your fleet needs grow.
Ever focused on integration and expandability, Geotab offers integration possibilities to third party, in-vehicle devices using the serial or CAN protocols. The IOX-RS232 is available in a female or a male version and communicates over the RS232 protocol. It is used for partners or customers integrating third party products where they wish to transmit data from a device, through the Geotab GO device, and up to MyGeotab. This is accomplished utilizing Geotab’s Third Party protocol via the IOX-RS232.
Many devices have been integrated using using the IOX-RS232 including truck scales, sensor data, Driver Distraction data, remote worker data, etc. In MyGeotab, this data can be used to create specific reports, adding more useful metrics for the company.
Who Should Use This
This is a perfect application for any company that requires data from any third party device on the RS232 protocol like gas detectors, pressure monitors, etc. It allows for the seamless integration of data from third party devices and consolidates it with valuable data already reported by the GO Device.
Required for implementations of Grace products.
