From Wiki Knowledge Base | Teltonika GPS

Easy steps to connect FMB140 CAN line to the vehicle directly and following contactless CAN connectors:


Installing FMB140 device[edit | edit source]

Tools needed for installation[edit | edit source]

  • Connection scheme (Please contact Teltonika Sales Representative and provide information about vehicle manufacturer, model and year.
  • FMB140 device
  • Pliers
  • Quick splice connectors (If vehicle CAN bus wires are very thin CAN adapter wires should be connected directly)
  • Plastic pry tool
  • Zip ties

Installation steps[edit | edit source]

  1. Be ready with a vehicle connection scheme that you have received from a Teltonika Sales Representative.
  2. Check the scheme for the current vehicle connection. Look for connectors matching PINs numbers and colors (may be different) according to connection scheme.
  3. Connect FMB140 CAN wires (CAN L, CAN H) as specified in connection scheme.

    Do not swap CAN L and CAN H lines.
    Not all FMB140 wires may be used in vehicle.

  4. Connect FMB140 positive and ground wires to the vehicle power supply lines.

    Do not swap power supply lines.
    Make sure that voltage does not exceed 30V.

  5. Switch vehicle ignition to ACC position. FMB140 CAN status LED on the side should start blinking.
  6. Configure FMB140 to read CAN bus data or control vehicle by setting its program number - CAN Adapter configuration

When FMB140 device turns on sleep mode, CAN chip is turned off till device turns off sleep mode.



Installing FMB140 + SIMPLE-CAN[edit | edit source]


Tools needed for installation[edit | edit source]

  • Connection scheme (Please contact Teltonika Sales Representative and provide information about vehicle manufacturer, model and year.
  • SIMPLE-CAN (Used for contactless connection. If two CAN lines need to be connected, two SIMPLE-CAN's must be used.)
  • FMB140 device
  • Pliers
  • Quick splice connectors (If vehicle CAN bus wires are very thin CAN adapter wires should be connected directly)
  • Plastic pry tool
  • Zip ties

Installation steps[edit | edit source]

  1. Connect the appropriate CAN bus pair of wires between FMB140 and SIMPLE-CAN:
    If CAN1 line need to be connected as specified in connection scheme:
    1. Connect FMB140 CAN1 L to CAN L of SIMPLE-CAN.
    2. Connect FMB140 CAN1 H to CAN H of SIMPLE-CAN.
    If CAN2 line need to be connected as specified in connection scheme:
    1. Connect FMB140 CAN2 L to CAN L of SIMPLE-CAN.
    2. Connect FMB140 CAN2 H to CAN H of SIMPLE-CAN.

      Alert.png
      Do not swap CAN L and CAN H lines.
      Not all CAN adapter wires may be used in vehicle.

  2. Fasten SIMPLE-CAN between vehicle CAN bus wires according to the connection scheme. It doeasn't matter which wire is on which side.

  3. Connect FMB140 positive and ground wires to the vehicle power supply lines or near FMB140 power wires.

    Alert.png
    Do not swap power supply lines.
    Make sure that voltage does not exceed 30V.

  4. Switch vehicle ignition to ACC position.
  5. SIMPLE-CAN LED will shine continously so device awaits for calibration.
    • Press the switch shortly and wait for the LED to start blinking every one second.


    • Automatic calibration process takes up to 10 seconds depending on the vehicle model. Device is calibrated properly then the LED is blinking every 2 seconds.

    Alert.png
    If after calibration process LED shines continuously, it means that device is not calibrated yet, CAN-BUS transmission has failed or ignition during calibration was not ON.


  6. Configure FMB140 to read CAN bus data by setting its program number - CAN Adapter configuration

FMB140 Configuration[edit | edit source]

FMB140 program number selection[edit | edit source]


FMB140 must be set to program number which depends on the vehicle model. Needed program number is always written on CAN Adapter mounting scheme. In order to be able to enter program number in adapter Software date of CAN adapter must be newer than connection scheme date. CAN adapter Software date can be checked:

Entering via SMS command[edit | edit source]


Required conditions:

  • FMB140 properly connected to vehicle

FMB140 program number can be set remotely, using SMS command. Send following SMS command to FMB140 device:

  • If you have set SMS login and password: login pass lvcansetprog X
  • If SMS login and password are not set leave two spaces before command:   lvcansetprog X

Command example:   lvcansetprog 11434
SMS response: LVCAN ProgNum: 11434

If during SMS command FMB140 was in following Sleep mode:

Entering via Teltonika Configurator[edit | edit source]


Required conditions:

  • FMB140 properly connected to vehicle

FMB140 program number can be set via Teltonika Configurator → (1) CAN Adapter → (2) Program Number. When program number is entered press Save to device.png (3) Save to device button that saves the entered program number into FMB140.

FMB140 CAN Adapter parameters configuration[edit | edit source]


Teltonika Configurator[edit | edit source]

CAN Adapter configuration can be performed using Teltonika Configurator via Micro-USB cable or Blue-tooth connection when CAN Adapter is connected to the vehicle.
When FMB140 is connected to the CAN Adapter, user can see all information that is received from the vehicle in Teltonika Configurator → Status → CAN Adapter tab or Teltonika Configurator → CAN Adapter section. In Status → CAN Adapter tab you can see information about CAN adapter and its readable parameters. In CAN Adapter section you can configure CAN Adapter and see incoming CAN bus data highlighted by green background color. Incoming data in both sections is automatically refreshed every 5 seconds. CAN bus data which should be readable from your vehicle is provided in "CAN Adapter supported vehicles list", which you can get from Teltonika Sales Representative.
The CAN Adapter I/O element can be configured like any other I/O element in Teltonika Configurator. All information about I/O element parameters description is in section I/O settings.

When using offline configuration method user can select which CAN data (according to vehicle) will be sent directly to the server without connection to adapter.

Send data with 0, if ignition is off[edit | edit source]

Depending on CAN Adapter I/O parameters and ignition status, FMB140 can send locked (last known) CAN Adapter I/O and active (real time) parameters values or reset values to 0. When ignition is off, CAN Adapter I/O parameters values sent to server are:

FMB140 CAN software update Over The Air[edit | edit source]

Internal CAN adapter of FMB140 device can be updated Over The Air by using FOTA WEB. A full procedure is described in a quick and simple, step-by-step guide below. Upgrading the software of CAN adapter will add more program numbers, thus, more vehicle models will be supported.

  • FMB140 device must be registered in Fota Web – device‘s model, firmware version, serial number and other information must be shown.
  • FMB140 device must have a correct firmware version uploaded. Currently, CAN adapter software update is only supported by firmware version 03.25.11.Rev144. Once device with correct firmware version connects to Fota Web on the next scheduled connection (or instant connection, initiated by an SMS command "web_connect"), a small, blue, „CAN“ logo will appear next to the device‘s model:
FM I 1registered.jpg


  • A current version of the CAN adapter software can be checked by pressing a small „i“ button on the right of fleet management device details. All available details of FMB140 device are listed in one window:
ZFM 1OldDate.jpg


  • If the software is not up-to-date it can be updated in the previous window. A check-box needs to be ticked, then „Actions“ button pressed and „Update CAN adapter firmware“ selected:


  • Once the software update task has been assigned, it can be seen in the main window. Please note, that uploading will start after the next scheduled connection to Fota Web (or instant connection, initiated by an SMS command "web_connect"):

  • When the update is finished, a new software version can be seen in the details window after the next scheduled connection to Fota Web (or instant connection, initiated by an SMS command "web_connect"):
