The AG24 offers many configurations to physically connect to powered assets, such as trailers, powered equipment (with or without powered takeoff), chassis, and more. Instructions and diagrams on installation are available here: https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/corpweb-static/pdf/docs/ag24-powered-asset-install-guide.pdf
One possible configuration for powered equipment is to use the AG24 powered asset cable. With this cable, the AG24 can draw full power from the equipment battery when the equipment is running, and will switch to the AG24's own internal battery when the activation signal is off.
Though labeled “Ignition,” the yellow wire can be hooked up to any 12VDC signal on the equipment, and the red “Power” wire can be installed on any 12-24VDC power source. Please note that you should not wire a 24VDC signal onto the “Ignition” wire.
This cable is compatible with numerous equipment types: utility trailers, skid steers, backhoes, cranes, generators, pumps, forklifts, and more.
When installed correctly, the AG24 will provide live GPS and speed tracking any time the main engine of the equipment is powered on, and for five minutes after engine shut-off. When the engine is shut-off, the AG24 will send GPS location and sensor data to the Samsara cloud every 2 hours by default. This data can be viewed on your Samsara Dashboard (cloud.samsara.com).
