FM6320 Towing detection

From Wiki Knowledge Base | Teltonika GPS

FM6320 activates towing function when below conditions are met:

  • Ignition (configured Ignition Source) is OFF.
  • Activation Timeout (set in Towing detection features) is reached.

When Activation Timeout is reached and Ignition is OFF, FM6320 monitors accelerometer data. If Acceleration or Angle value reaches configured threshold for configured time (in ms), device again checks Ignition state. If Ignition is still OFF according to configured "Ignition check after Event" time, then event is generated and can send sms or make call if configured. Function will be reactivated after FM6320 again detects change of Ignition state from ON to OFF.
