FMC230 Trip/Odometer settings
Trip section offers user to configure the Trip feature. Trip starts when Ignition according Ignition source is ON and Movement according Movement source is ON and also 'Start Speed' is exceeded. Start Speed defines the minimum GPS speed in order to detect Trip start.
Ignition OFF Timeout is the timeout value to detect Trip end once the Ignition (configured ignition source) is off.
I/O Trip Odometer must be enabled to use Distance counting mode feature. When it is set to Continuous, Trip distance is going to be counted continuously (from Trip start to Trip end) and written to I/O Trip Odometer value field. When Trip is over and the next Trip begins, Trip Odometer value is reset to zero.
When Mode is set to Between Records, the distance is going to be counted between every record made. This value is written to I/O Trip Odometer value field and is reset to zero every new record until the Trip ends. If later all Odometer values are summed up manually, the distance driven during the whole duration of the Trip can be obtained.
Advanced Trip Settings
Advanced trip settings allow configuring a number of Eco Score allowed Events per 100 km and enabling/disabling iButton remembering functionality.
I/O Eco score must be enabled to get the value onto the server. Eco score is dependent on overspeeding, Eco/Green driving (harsh acceleration, braking, cornering), excessive idling and high RPM events (latter one requires OBD BT dongle). If less of parameters/scenarios are activated - it is easier to have higher Eco score. ECO scoring is differentiated by separate Trips.
There are six Eco evaluation events:
- Harsh acceleration.
- Harsh braking.
- Harsh cornering.
- Over-speeding (will only count events with value 1 (start) and ignore value 0 (end)).
- Excessive Idling (will only count events with value 1 (start) and ignore value 0 (end)).
- High RPM.
Eco score value can range from 10 (excellent) to 0.00 (very bad):
- Excellent 8.00 – 10
- Good 6.00 – 7.99
- Not Good 4.00 – 5.99
- Bad 2.00 – 3.99
- Very Bad 0 – 1.99
How Eco score is rated:
- Eallowed - ECO Score Allowed Events
- d - trip distance traveled in KM
- Egen - Total generated events
ECO score calculation example:
Remember iButton functionality. If Remember iButton and Trip parameters are enabled, ignition is on and iButton is attached then FMC230 remembers iButton ID. iButton ID is saved and sent to the server with every record. If new iButton is attached during the Trip, FMC230 remembers new iButton ID. FMC230 forgets iButton ID after ignition is off and ignition timeout is reached.
Calculation Source allows to choose Odometer calculation source between GNSS, OBD.
Odometer Value sets the starting total odometer value.
