The three variations of the ESX-TC1 take into account the different communication characteristics in different applications. The ESX-TC1 displays its strengths as an on-board data logger in the communication of controls and sensor data using the CAN bus. CANOpen, SAE J1939 and CAN freestyle communications are supported.
The TC1 also comes with an Embedded Linux System which allows the data can also be pre-processed and evaluated on the module.
The TC1 can be configured via the "Vehicle Data System (VDS)" software in which CANbus parameters are recorded, stored in the 1 GByte flash and then forwarded.
Forwarding can take place in all TC1 versions via Ethernet or the respective wireless interface. This addresses applications which gather data over the course of the day and which can be accessed on a WiFi Hotspot via Internet connection in the evening. Alternatively, the TC1-WiFi(+) can also act as a Hotspot itself, so that the data can be retrieved via a laptop or tablet.
The TC1-WiFi+ version also allows geo-location of the recorded data using GPS/GLONASS. The localization function is also a fixed component of the solution using the TC1-Mobile.
