ZED Connect has announced the expansion of its line of ELD-compliance plug-and-play logging devices with the debut of an OBDII 16-pin adapter developed specifically for smaller commercial vehicles and vocational work trucks requiring compliance to the FMCSA Electronic Logging Device mandate.

ZED Connect’s simple and low-cost electronic logging device meets new federal requirements while minimizing the associated costs of compliance.  Fleet owners, drivers and owner-operators benefit from the simplicity of this plug-and-play solution which includes ELD, visual inspection reporting, vehicle tracking and more.

The new OBDII-compatible line incorporates the same functionality utilized in ZED Connect’s heavy duty trucking application, and is a perfect solution for private fleets, vocational work trucks, and applications where ELD requirements are seasonal or occasional.  ZED ELD includes a nominal one-time fee for bluetooth-enabled hardware which plugs into the vehicle’s OBDII port and communicates via Bluetooth to the drivers cellular enabled smart device.  ZED Connect’s ELD solution requires no contracts or recurring monthly fees.

The adapter synchronizes with the ZED ELD app to capture data required for FMCSA E-log Truck Driver ELD (Electronic Logging Device) compliance. The Bluetooth connection uses multiple levels of security to connect to the ZED app on compatible iOS and Android devices. The OBDII solution is currently compatible with most domestic vehicles 2008 and newer.

“As the ELD compliance date approaches, much of the focus has been on the adaptability and readiness of heavy duty fleets,” said ZED Connect CEO Skip Kinford.  “With our heavy-duty focused solution well in place, we felt it was essential to also provide an inexpensive, easy-to-install system for fleets also requiring OBDII solutions, many of which are smaller commercial vehicles such as construction or vocational work trucks.”
