Compact rugged IP67 rated housing
Made of sturdy Nylon/Glass composite plastic the housing is extremely tough and UV resistant, is resistant to oils and can easily handle high temperatures.
The housing is sealed using 4 screws and has 2 convenient mounting tabs.
Dimensions: 125mm x 80mm x 25mm
Weight: 250 grams
The G60 is manufactured with various harness options. Because of the nature of the housing the wire harness is soldered to the PCB at production.
3 wire (power, ground, ignition).
12 wire harness.
8V to 45V DC (max)
10mA average (battery fully charged)
145mA average (battery charging)
The G60 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.

Low noise GPS amplifier
GPS signals are boosted by a special low-noise amplifier (LNA). This allows the G60 to operate where other units will fail to receive GPS signal.
2G or 3G (NextG)
The G60 can be manufactured for specific markets around the world with cellular modem modules approved by all the major networks.

Internal GPS and cellular antennas.
Having the antennas inside the housing makes for very simple and quick installation. The G60 has had its antennas tuned by the top laboratories to ensure optimal performance.
The standard 850mAh LiPo backup battery allows the G60 to operate when external power is removed for up to 7 days, depending on the amount of movement.
4 x Digital Inputs
- 1 x Ignition line
- 3 x digital inputs with configurable pull-up / pull-down
- Numerous configuration options including switches, duress/panic alerts, pulse counting
3 x Digital Outputs
3 x switched ground digital outputs, easily wired up to switch external lights, relays, buzzers, sirens, motors and other devices. Outputs can be used to immobilise a vehicle.
3 Axis Accelerometer
The 3 axis accelerometer allows the G60 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 G60 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 G60 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 3.3V Out
The G60 can provide power to external sensors via this 3.3V power line, allowing for easy installation and doing away with the need for additional external power supplies.
Maximum current: 200mA
Switched 5V Out
The G60 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 G60 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 G60 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 and other important information that needs to be securely stored.
The G60 firmware can communicate with Garmin FMI devices.
