8V to 45V DC
15mA average (battery fully charged)
135mA average (battery charging)
The G100 passes stringent automotive power “load dump” tests to ensure that it will continue to operate in the harshest electrical systems. A built-in self-resetting fuse makes installation easy and safe.
On external power
-20°C to +60°C
Below 0°C the standard internal backup battery’s ability to deliver sufficient power to operate the cellular modem is reduced. Below 0°C and above +45°C the internal backup battery will not be charged as a safety precaution due to dangers associated with charging batteries at extreme temperatures.
For battery powered tracking in extreme temperatures enquire about our Remora tracker with extended temperature range battery options.
High sensitivity GPS
UBLOX MAX8 GPS module
- Supports concurrent GLONASS and other GNSS systems
- 72 channel high sensitivity receiver
- -167dBm industry leading tracking performance
- Battery backed up for optimal hot-start performance
- AssistNow Offline aiding data for extremely fast time-to-first-fix and performance in urban canyon environments
Concurrent GPS and GLONASS
The G100 supports position tracking using both the American GPS satellites and the Russian GLONASS system concurrently. This results in amazingly fast and accurate tracking with double the number of satellites available for use.
Low noise GPS Amplifier
GPS signals are boosted by a special low-noise amplifier (LNA). This allows the G100 to operate where other units will fail to receive GPS signal.
2G or 3G (NextG)
The G100 can be manufactured for specific markets around the world with cellular modem modules approved by all the major networks.

Global coverage – anywhere in the world.
The G100 can be fitted with an Iridium SBD module that allows it to communicate via the Iridium satellite network. The G100 will automatically switch over to using Iridium communications when out of range of the cellular networks.
The G100 can be fitted with a WiFi FlexiCard – allowing it to communicate on a WiFi network which saves on SIM data costs
Internal GPS and cellular antennae.
Having the primary antennae inside the housing makes for very simple and quick installation. The G100 has had its antennae tuned by top laboratories to ensure optimal performance.
*Iridium modem and other wireless FlexiCards may require an external antenna
The standard 800mAh LiPo backup battery allows the G100 to operate when external power is removed for up to 4 days, depending on the amount of movement. Optional HUGE battery pack of 1800mAh available on special order.
5 x Digital Inputs
- 1 x Ignition line
- 4 x Digital Inputs with configurable pull-up / pull-down
- Numerous configuration options including switches, duress/panic alerts, pulse counting.
2 x Digital Outputs
2 x switched ground digital outputs, easily wired up to switch external lights, relays, buzzers, sirens, motors and other devices. Can be used to immobilise a vehicle
Audible alert without requiring the installation of an external buzzer. Can be used for speeding alerts, harsh driving alerts, reminders to swipe RFID tags, error conditions and other events.
The diagnostic LED makes it easy to see if the device is operating correctly.
3 Axis Accelerometer
The 3 axis accelerometer allows the G100 to detect harsh driving events (harsh acceleration, braking and cornering) and this information can be used to monitor driver behaviour and unsafe driving. It also allows the G100 to go to ‘sleep’ when not moving, resulting in extremely low standby current.
Communicate with common one-wire iButton devices.
RS232 receive and transmit allow the G100 to communicate with external RS232 devices. These can include fuel monitoring, Garmin FMI, tyre pressure monitoring. The RS232 interface can also be used to configure the device and to test and debug.
Switched 5V Out
The G100 can provide power to external peripherals via this 5V power line, allowing for easy installation and doing away with the need for additional external power supplies.
Maximum current: 300mA
DMCAN Peripheral Port
Digital Matter has a range of peripherals that connect to the G100 via the DMCAN peripheral port. Peripherals such as the RFID Driver ID reader, 5 digit keypad, data console and RF gateway use the DMCAN port.
The G100 has sufficient memory to store over 50,000 records in its flash memory. Normally the data will be sent to the server immediately but if the device is out of range then there is sufficient space to ensure that no data is lost – for many weeks of driving!
The flash memory is also used to store parameters, GPS aiding data, accident data, driver lists, geo-fences and other important information that needs to be securely stored.
FlexiCard Expansion Slot
The G100 has one FlexiCard slot. This card slot allows the device to be upgraded to support extra functionality:
- Iridium satellite modem
- WiFi data transfer
- Radio gateway
- Additional RS232 ports
- Digital Matter can design custom cards by request
The innovation of FlexiCards allows the G100 to be the most flexible telematics device available on the market.
6 x FlexiCard IO
The FlexiCard slot is connected to 6 pins on the G100 connector. This allows the cards to provide functionality to the outside world via the connector pins.
