SOLID is a multi-source vehicle data interface. It is part of the range of Squarell solutions for advanced vehicle data solutions. With configurable functionality and extended connectivity SOLID can be used in automotive applications like telematics, real-time monitoring, measurement and interfacing.

The Squarell SOLID offers more than just streaming data. It processes the latter to provide it to you in order to accomplish advanced fleet management.

What is a Vehicle Data Interface?

A Vehicle Data Interface is an electronic device to read data from a vehicle data network and convert it into RS232 or other standardized protocols such as CANbus (FMS/J1939). This data is then standardised and therefore comparable for the entire fleet.

You can read data from a brand specific vehicle network with this interface. Most vehicles are ordered from the factory without FMS interface. With the Squarell solutions, you do not have to visit the truck dealer to activate the FMS gateway since our CANbus (FMS/J1939) interfaces are ready to use.

SOLID benefits

  • One solution for your entire fleet

  • Trucks, vans, cars

  • Analyse trip-, vehicle- and driver performance
  • Save fuel, induce safe driving and reduce CO2 emission

  • More data available than a manufacturer’s interface

  • Easy integration with telematics and modems
  • Output in CANbus (FMS / J1939) or RS232 (ASCII)

  • Non-intrusive installation with CANcliQ and DatacliQ

  • Standardised and uniform data for your entire fleet

Connecting the SOLID to a vehicle

The SOLID sends data by either an FMS/J1939 CANbus or RS232 output. This data contains the FMS standard parameters, J1939 parameters and also Squarell calculated parameters that can help you analyse and increase the vehicle performance, reduce CO2 emissions and save fuel.
