CTM-200 Gateway

Chameleon CTM-200™
for Mobile Use

With high accuracy GPS, engine diagnostic support and an accelerometer for motion detection, this multi-access gateway offers much more than just location data for mobile applications.
I/O for integration with existing vehicle subsystems
The CTM-200 gateway has 6 inputs that can be configured as analog or digital. Four of the inputs are single-ended and two are differential inputs with a dynamic range of 0-10 Volts.

Two Ethernet Ports
One Ethernet port is a LAN port and the other is a WAN port. This enables the gateway to be used as a “fail over” device where the WAN port is on a different subnet, or they can be both defined to be on the same subnet “switched” operation.
CAN Bus Port
CAN2.0B Bus Interface support for CAN enabled devices.
Real Time Clock
Maintain time synchronization for up to 24 hours when power has been removed from the device (120 second recharging time).
3-Axis Digital Accelerometer
Accelerometer that can be used for motion detection and hard brake/hard acceleration events.
Micro SD Memory Card Support
On board memory expansion for data logging and storage applications.
Locking I/O Terminals
Prevents accidental disconnects.
5.5 V to 36V continuous 58 V transient
Wide input voltage range to support a variety of operating environments (no modem reset during cold cranking).
User Replaceable Fuse
Easily accessible fuse for circuit protection.
Output Power (5-36 V) via Terminal Block
Ability to supply power to externally connected accessories and devices.
64-256 MB of RAM
Sizeable application space to support current and future OS requirements.
