The Trailer ID System: how it is connected
With the Trailer ID System, you can check if the correct trailer is connected to the truck. The system consists of two devices: one Sender (located in the trailer) for sending the trailer ID and one Transceiver (located in the tractor unit) for receiving the ID data.
In combination with a fleet management system, you can get various information about the trailer. For example, the coupling and uncoupling time, the GPS location and the utilisation or cargo of the trailer.
How the system sends and receives trailer data
Trailer couple and uncouple messages
When the trailer is coupled to the tractor, the ID Sender sends the trailer ID message to the Transceiver. If the trailer is uncoupled, the system knows the trailer is disconnected.
Connecting the Trailer ID Sender to the brake light is quick and easy thanks to the pre-crimped connectors. The Transceiver unit comes with tractor specific installation instruction from Squarell to ensure correct installation. If the truck is equipped with an interface device from Squarell, a special transceiver connector can be used to plug the connector into the Special Function Device port on the Squarell device. To test signals during installation, the Trailer ID Transceiver confirms the reception of the Trailer ID signal via an LED.
