The hardware system is complemented by the IPEcloud web portal, which supports high-speed and secure remote data transmission through to smart fleet management. The M-LOG V3 is a data-logger for validating and testing development vehicle fleets. It features up to twelve measurement inputs for CAN, LIN, Ethernet, Flexray, and a range of protocols such as J1939, XCP, CCP, OBD, etc. Due to COMgate V3, users can now control their vehicle fleets operating worldwide from afar. The hardware module is compatible both in terms of its dimensions and also the software with existing M-LOG data-logger fleets and older versions of the M-LOG operating system Testdrive. This allows existing M-LOG customers to convert to the new COMgate V3 without exchanging the logger.

In addition to Wi-Fi, the COMgate V3 offers global modem support, which permits rapid access to measurement data and measurement configuration updates. The modem features a mini-SIM card slot, can be equipped with modules and can – depending on the regional place of installation – be selected for North America, EMEA, or APAC/South America. For Wi-Fi transmission, the standards IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n are covered. For supporting mobile terminal devices, e.g. for a display connection to tablets, the COMgate V3 itself can set up an access point.

Monitoring of data-logger fleets

On the basis of remote data transmission via Wi-Fi or modem, which is supported by all Ipetronik data-loggers, the IPEcloud offers various services for controlling a data-logger fleet. These include the management of the incoming measurement data in addition to rapid status monitoring and remote updating of the logger configuration.

IPEdrive constitutes the central element of the web portal. IPEdrive manages the incoming measurement data and records measurement configurations for the data-logger upload. In this data area, users will also find the min/max statistics files with compressed measurement data, which they can use to record the operating state of a vehicle and logger on the basis of IPEfleet.

IPEfleet supports users with the individual management of their data-loggers and/or vehicle fleets in various projects. For example, loggers can be classified into various groups so as to depict organizational or functional units. It is also possible for multiple users to view various segments. A configuration menu allows users to define which parameters are to be monitored in the measurement data logged. Status monitoring then takes the form of a traffic light display (red/green). Optionally, the system files transmitted can be automatically processed and output in the form of a PDF report. GPS position recording makes it possible to display the route travelled and the current vehicle location in a map element. IPEmail is a mailbox for managing the logger e-mails and the alarm notifications created by the user. This allows users to be informed of specific system errors or deviations in the measurement data.
