Atrack AX7

Sat Dec 06, 2014 7:42 pm

Hi GpsGate,

I am new to this with hardware trackers and data mapping.

I am using the Atrack AX7 tracker and get an parse error when using %FC (Fuel used in 0,1 liter U32) and %VN (VIN String 19) in binary mode.

In text mode everything works.

My form tag is now in text mode
AT$FORM=0,@P,0,"%SA%MV%GQ%CE%LC%CN%RL%AT%RP%GS%DT%MF%EL%TR%ET%FL%ML%FC%VN"

I cannot find any variable to map to Fuel used or should it be mapped to fule rate?

Regards Johan

How to enable extra fields using AT$FORM

Method 1 only supported for the ASCII protocol!

1. Make sure you have a firmware version that supports "%CI". Check with ATrack.
2. Include %CI in your AT$FORM command

Example: AT$FORM=0,,1,"%CI%SA"

Now GpsGate will understand the extra fields set to the server.

3. If there are any signals missing in the device mapper for the device type, please let us know and we will add them.

Method 2 supported by both Binary and ASCII protocol.

1. Edit the Device Type in SiteAdmin
-> Login to SiteAdmin
-> Go to Devices (top menu)
-> Go to Types (left menu)
-> Select Device Type in drop downs.
-> Scroll down.

2. Set the field "AT$FORM" to the format string you also send to the device.

Example: AT$FORM=0,,1,"%SA"

Now GpsGate will understand the extra fields set to the server.

3. If there are any signals missing in the device mapper for the device type, please let us know and we will add them.

NOTE! You also need to send the AT$FORM string to the device!

Johan

Thanks for the answer Johan,

But if this AT form string works on ascii
AT$FORM=0,@P,0,"%SA%MV%GQ%CE%LC%CN%RL%AT%RP%GS%DT%MF%EL%TR%ET%FL%ML%FC%VN"

And the same do no work in binary mode and gives a parse error
AT$FORM=1,@P,0,"%SA%MV%GQ%CE%LC%CN%RL%AT%RP%GS%DT%MF%EL%TR%ET%FL%ML%FC%VN"

How can I fix it with %CI?

Regards Johan

For binary mode, use Method 2 above. Here is that part of the guide again:

Method 2 supported by both Binary and ASCII protocol.

1. Edit the Device Type in SiteAdmin
-> Login to SiteAdmin
-> Go to Devices (top menu)
-> Go to Types (left menu)
-> Select Device Type in drop downs.
-> Scroll down.

2. Set the field "AT$FORM" to the format string you also send to the device.

Example: AT$FORM=0,,1,"%SA"

Now GpsGate will understand the extra fields set to the server.

3. If there are any signals missing in the device mapper for the device type, please let us know and we will add them.

NOTE! You also need to send the AT$FORM string to the device!

Thanks for the answer Johan,

But the problem is %FC and %VN that do not work in binary mode but works in text mode. There for it must be diffreces between the implemenation between binary and text.

All other parameters work in both binary and text mode.

I think we are talking about diffrent things.

Send Terminal data in Binary Mode which includes %FC and %VN to support @ gpsgate.com and we will take a look at this.
