DLKPro: the data key for professionals

  • VDO optimizes the handling of tachograph data with the further developed download key family DLKPro, which combines a touch screen display, a smartcard reader and evaluation software in one device.
  • VDO offers the DLKPro product family in tailor-made versions for different target groups.

Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany, 20 March 2012. With the new DLKPro family, VDO makes the handling of data from Digital Tachographs even easier now. The target-group-oriented products of the new DLKPro family are the practical key to the professional handling of data in the DTCO mass memory, the driver card, the workshop card, the control card for authorities, and all competing products. The latest generation is even easier to operate, offers numerous innovative supplementary functions and, with the integral smartcard reader, renders additional peripheral devices superfluous. The DLKPro Series includes all download products already introduced to the market: DLKPro Download Key, TIS-Compact and Inspection Key.

Six years since its initial introduction, the DLKPro product family has developed from a relatively simple memory stick into a vest-pocket computer. As handy as a mobile phone and just as easy to operate, the software and hardware of the new download products combine all data handling functions in one device and make external card readers unnecessary. And owing to the integrated accumulators, no batteries are needed.

The 2.2-inch full-color touch screen display (approx.5.6 cm) makes operation child's play and, among other things, enables direct data evaluation on the key. Downloads can be controlled and data evaluated by means of an easily understandable menu that can output 29 languages. The software required for this is preinstalled. Moreover, all data records get a time stamp, and a new timer function reminds the driver when downloads are due. Parallel to this the memory has been enlarged so that now as many as 6,000 quarterly downloads can be captured.

For the various target groups and their individual requirements there are tailor-made DLKPro products. The product family is led by the classic DLKPro Download Key, which harmonizes perfectly among other things with the archiving and evaluating software TIS Web and is designed for conventional fleet use. With the new DLKPro Download Key, fleet operators and managers thus fulfill their legal requirement to archive tachograph data. Additionally, extensibility is assured by an SD card reader, which is also integrated in the device and can be used anytime and anywhere to create separate backup copies of all data records.

In addition, there is the DLKPro TIS-Compact, designed for smaller fleets of five to ten vehicles and containing preinstalled software for data analysis. Driver and vehicle data thus can be quickly and simply visualized and evaluated directly in the DLKPro TIS-Compact and at the office. The DLKPro Inspection Key completes the portfolio: authorities and fleet managers can use it for the simple monitoring of permissible driving time and identify possible violations at a single glance. The individual members of the product group easily can be distinguished from each other due to their different coloring.
