LMU-4500

Competitive Edge

CalAmp’s rugged LMU-4500 product is an environmentally sealed dual-mode location and messaging device for mining and construction markets that features both satellite and cellular communications as well as connection to the vehicles ECU. The rugged LMU-4500 will enable worldwide monitoring and control of mobile assets in severe climates and conditions. The LMU-4500 offers leading GPS sensitivity receiver technology; either HSPA, GSM/GPRS and CDMA cellular technologies; built 3D accelerometer to measure g-force conditions; a multitude of I/O interfaces to hook up to; and expandable accessories that make it an industry leading value proposition. The LMU-4500 expandability and flexibility lowers the cost of delivering, supporting, and growing heavy duty fleet management solutions.

Expanded Interface

The LMU-4500 is designed to support customers needing a leading fleet management features, 16G accelerometers for measuring motion, driver behavior and impact events in an environmentally sealed enclosure. The LMU-4500 features a multitude of interfaces such as two switched power serial ports, Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) support, a comprehensive I/O system , optional jPOD heavy-duty ECU interface reads and transmits engine condition and performance data such as engine run time, oil pressure, temperature and other key performance metrics to provide the best possible real-time picture of vehicle health. In addition, the LMU-4500 offers optional WiFi capabilities. This expandable architecture saves upfront costs while allowing your solutions to grow with customers’ changing needs.

Flexibility

The LMU-4500 employs CalAmp’s industry leading on-board alert engine, PEG™ (Programmable Event Generator). This advanced engine monitors external conditions and supports customer-defined exception-based rules to help meet the needs of your application. PEG continuously monitors the vehicle environment and responds instantaneously to pre-defined threshold conditions related to time, date, motion, location, geo-zone, input and other event combinations. With PEG, your unique application will meet demanding customer requirements. This behavior can be programmed by CalAmp before shipment, at a customer's facility, or over-the-air once the unit has been fielded. Combining affordability and device intelligence with your unique application provides the most flexible tracking device in its class.

Over-the-Air Serviceability

The LMU-4500 also incorporates CalAmp’s industry leading over-the-air device management and maintenance software, PULS™ (Programming, Update and Logistics System). Configuration parameters, PEG™ scripts, and firmware can all be updated over the air. PULS™ offers out-of-the-box, hands-free configuration and automatic post-installation upgrades. You can also monitor unit health status across your customers’ fleets to quickly identify issues before they become expensive problems.
