FM36M1 is GNSS, LTE CAT M1, NB IoT terminal with backup battery for SPECIAL applications. FM36M1is designed for light vehicles tracking but also suitable for advanced applications like logistics, delivery services, utility transport and more. It is excellent for refrigerated transport, because this terminal have extended input/output set and 1-wire interface for temperature monitoring. With Teltonika CAN adapters, FM36M1 can be even used in agriculture or construction & mining. Moreover FM36M1 supports LTE CAT M1 and NB IoT, with additional GSM backwards compatibility, which makes this device usable with newest, cost efficient and most popular technologies. FM36M1 also has a USB port for device status log output and configuration.
