    The new FALCOM FOX3

    the engineering of this AVL product is built on the same technology combining both versions of the FOXIN/EN devices with additional hardware extensions into one product. The main characteristic of this product is the on-board auto-switch that it supports connection to both internal and external antennas by automatically switching to the external antennas when connected. This AVL product is the first design to feature a hardware implementation of this technology.

    FALCOM is using state-of-the-art technology to develop unique and low-cost devices for managing assets and vehicle tracking more effectively than current systems on the market today. FOX3 is a free configurable smart tracking / data logging device which can be fully adapted to user requirements. Also needed hardware options can be decided shortly before installation depending on the application. It provides analog ports and integrates with 1-Wire interface. The 1-Wire interface supports connection with multiple sensors and actuators such as iButton, Temperature Logger, Temperature Sensor, Humidity sensor… etc.

    It can act a mobile client for various regular applications like AVL, fleet management, security and recovery of assets. The device offers new features like: DATA ENCRYPTION, several HISTORY MODES or ECO- DRIVE beside standard items like status reports, alerts messaging, audio call, spy calls or geofencing.
