Ignition counter

Hello there,

I have the following questions:

  1. What is the function of the ignition counter?
  2. How is it used in scenarios or what are its benefits?
  3. Is the event sent to the server, and what is the duration of the interval?

Thank you.

Hi,

Good day, Thank you for contacting Teltonika Telematics!

Ignition Counter function counts Duration in seconds when Ignition state is On.

It is possible to configure a starting value of the counter in secs.

benefits will be you can count the extra working hours of Ignition over the desired time duration when vehicle Ignition was ON.

You can get Ignition counter data on AVL ID 249.

You can set event from I/O option. As shown below.

Please use link below for your reference.

Alright, does “extra ignition on” refer to when the engine is running or not running?

Regarding the data sent to the server, is the counter value accumulated?

Hi,

Good day, Thank you for contacting Teltonika Telematics!

This scenario will counts the time spent with the ignition in the resolution of seconds.

It totally depends on how you have connected the DIN 1/Ignition detection wire of the device in the vehicle. If it is connected with Actual Engine ON detection source you will be getting that value in Ignition Counter.

Counter value will not reset after Ignition is OFF. It will add to the previous value and send it to server.
