TCG4 Product Photo

The TCG-4 is the latest and most powerful on-board telematics module from STW. This new digitalization platform offers multiple communication interfaces and a powerful processor; making new business models possible, and allows for further innovation in existing ones.

Interfaces include 4G LTE mobile communication technology (with 2G/3G fallback), WiFi, and Bluetooth. The integrated receiver for global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) allows accurate positioning of mobile machines in the field. All data can be exchanged between authorized users and cloud services at any time.

Sophisticated Internet of Things (IoT) Connectivity Gateway

With versatile interfaces and protocols, the TCG-4 manages the communication within the machine, among machines (M2M), smart devices, and of course, to the internet and cloud services. This makes the TCG-4 a highly adaptable platform for IoT solutions.

FFF Form Fit Function Compatibility

The TCG-4 offers a practical form factor and includes the same connection as the previous generation. Additional features include sophisticated and proven software libraries, and a seamless connection to the cloud.

Product Features

Technology Benefits
 4G (LTE) The TCG-4 connects machines via 4G LTE (with 3G / 2G fallback) mobile communication technology to the Internet. This ensures reliable connectivity – even in regions where no legacy networks (3G / 2G) are available.
Freely Programmable The Linux operating system, its wide-ranging development ecosystem, combined with extensive programming libraries, makes it fast and easy to develop applications; both independently and tailor-made to specific use cases.
High Performance Processor The powerful ARM processor, DDR3 memory, and extensive data storage facilitate data pre-processing at the edge, even before exchanging data with cloud services.
Remote Access & Cloud Services VDSR is STW’s extensive solution platform that provides remote technical support, application distribution, and multiple device configuration for your mobile machines in the field.
On-Board Communication The TCG-4 is well prepared to meet nearly any on-board machine connection need. The module includes CAN, Ethernet, BroadR-Reach, and USB communication interfaces.
IoT & M2M With the use of license-free radio communication technologies such as LoRaWAN, the TCG-4 provides the basis for inexpensive IoT solutions. M2M communications, using WiFi mesh networks, make it possible to create cooperating machine solutions independently from local infrastructures.
Robust Design The TCG-4 is particularly designed to operate in rough environmental conditions common in the mobile off-highway industry (i.e. shock, vibration, temperature). This STW telematics module complies with standards for the automotive, agricultural, and construction machinery industries.
