Hand held Data Collection Unit


The DC-10 data collector is a tiny portable computer that fits easily in the palm of your hand. It links the vehicle's on-board computer and the garage computer, fulfilling two functions: downloading the data stored in the on-board computer and uploading new control software and configuration.

Using a DC-10 saves the expense of installing automatic data transfer devices between Data Loggers and the garage computer. The user goes to each vehicle, plugs the DC-10 in the on-board computer and presses the single GO button. The data stored in the vehicle's computer is copied to the DC-10. Back in the office, the user plugs the DC-10 directly into his computer and downloads the data for further processing by the analysis and presentation software.


  • Various auditory and luminous signals indicate whether the operation was successful.
  • Operation is simplified as much as possible, allowing anyone to use it to collect all the data.
  • The DC-10 is battery-operated, offering 4-8 months of autonomy.
  • The unit can have 128 KB to 1 MB of memory.
  • The unit can be used as a temporary data acquisition system.
  • Ideal for small applications where cost must be kept down.
  • Complements other data-transfer systems such as spread-spectrum modems or infrared modems.


The unit transfers passenger-counting data from the on-board micro-computer to the garage computer, and uploads the on-board computer's software when necessary.
