A tachograph can become a duty not only for a truck, but also for a car or a van. This is especially true if, for example, the car with a trailer is used in commercial transport and the maximum permissible weight of 3500 kg has been exceeded. However, there is also a general obligation regardless of weight if a car or a transporter is used for passenger transport. With the help of a tachograph, you can not only read trips, times and the associated rest periods, but also the speed. Violations of the duty of a tachograph can lead to high penalties.
Tachograph available for every car
Retrofitting a tachograph involves a minor intervention in the vehicle electronics. In the first step when installing a tachograph, the vehicle must be completely de-energized. Accordingly, you have to disconnect the battery here. Then you have to connect the tachograph to the vehicle electronics. That is often about a 4 pin. Plug no problem at all. Two points are important here. The first point, there must be no different tensions. If this were the case, the tachograph and the vehicle could malfunction. You also have to make sure that the voltage is present as a permanent plus. This is the only way to ensure that the tachograph functions properly.
Assemble from a tachograph
Depending on the model of the tachograph, there may be further installation steps. This is especially true when the tachograph can and should transmit the data. So there are models with GSM and GPS are equipped. In such cases there is one Antenna necessary for the transfer of the data. If this is the case, you must connect and route the antenna cable to the tachograph. Where you can attach the antenna for transmission to the vehicle depends on the model. Finally, the tachograph itself must be securely installed in the vehicle. Depending on the cable length, there are various options here. As a rule, the assembly does not involve a great deal of effort, since fastening with adhesive pads is usually possible due to the low weight. Alternatively, there is also the possibility of mounting with a mounting frame and a screw connection, if you do not have confidence in an adhesive connection.
