Control Unit (CCU)
Scope of delivery
Functional description
The communication control unit installed in the vehicle (termed CCU in the following) receives vehicle-specific data via
the vehicle's OBD interface (distance reading, error codes
from the control unit, etc.) and transmits this data via an
installed SIM card to an Internet portal. The data in the Internet portal can be viewed by the fleet operator and evaluated.
The specific vehicle data which is transmitted to the Internet
portal depends on the agreement "Fleet management with
the vehicle owner" and technical equipment of the vehicle.
Usage other than that described above is not permissible.
!!The CCU may only be installed in the vehicle after prior

tes with the Internet portal managed by the fleet operator.
RR The transmitted data are processed in the Internet portal
and provided to the fleet manager.
Safety Instructions
RR In the Internet portal, the fleet manager has access to all
of the data transmitted from the vehicle.

Self-test and learning the baud rate
1. Login to the Internet portal with a username and password.
1. Plug the OBD connecting cable into the CCU as shown in
the figure.
2. Search for the OBD interface and vehicle (see ESI[tronic],
instructions from the vehicle manufacturer or corresponding Internet forums).
3. Connect the OBD connecting cable to the OBD interface
of the vehicle.
?? The LED must shine once briefly within 5 seconds.
!!If the LED does not shine within 5 seconds, you need to
make sure that the OBD connecting cable is connected to
the CCU, and then repeat step 3.
iiIf you have problems with access, call the fleet manager
2. Enter the vehicle identification number (VIN).
3. Start searching with <Search vehicle>.
?? The most important vehicle data are displayed:
!!If the LED still does not shine, repeat step 3 with a new
CCU and a new OBD connecting cable.
4. Turn on the vehicle.
5. Leave in the OBD connecting cable for at least 10 minutes
(the time required for determining the baud rate).
Assigning the CCU to a vehicle in the portal
iiBefore installation, the CCU must be assigned to a vehicle
in an Internet portal by the workshop responsible for installation. The Internet address can be obtained from your
fleet operator or fleet manager.
!!After the CCU has been assigned to a vehicle, it may only
be installed in this vehicle.
iiA failure indication appears if the vehicle identification
number was entered incorrectly or the vehicle was not set
up by the fleet manager in the Internet portal. Enter the
VIN and restart the search.
iiIf a failure indication appears even though the VIN has
been correctly entered, contact the fleet operator hotline.
RR The fleet manager has already set up the vehicle and the
Internet portal.
RR There must be a functioning access (username/password)
to the Internet portal.
RR Available CCU with a serial number and test number.
RR The vehicle is ready for installation.
RR The vehicle battery has a normal charge of approximately
12 V when resting.
4. Compare the vehicle data that are displayed (make, model
and model type) with the vehicle registration or CoC (Certificate of Conformity).

Installing the CCU
!!Install the CCU at a location that
$$ does not impair any of the safety devices (such as the
main airbag, knee airbag and steering).
$$ the CCU is located close to the OBD interface of the
$$ the CCU has a minimum distance of 5 mm from the
$$ the CCU can be installed and fastened with sufficient space.
$$ contact is prevented between the CCU or the OBD connection cable with hot components.
$$ the OBD connection cable is not crushed or unusually
$$ the functioning of other lines or cables is not impaired,
or they are not clamped.
$$ the cladding/covers can be easily closed during assembly.
1. Remove the cladding/covering within the vehicle (see the
installation instructions from the vehicle manufacturer).
2. Run the OBD connection cables so that it does not impair
or interfere with the functioning of other components
(such as the steering, transmission, pedals, etc.).
iiIn some cases, the OBD connection cable needs to be
disconnected from the CCU so that the OBD connection
cable can be properly run (such as through small penetrations).
3. If possible, fix the CCU with double-sided adhesive tape to
the installation site, or alternatively use the holder (Fig. 1,
item 6).
4. Secure the CCU with cable ties so that the CCU cannot
shake or shift.
5. Reliably secure and attach the OBD connection cable.
6. Mount the cladding/covering.
7. Read the DTCs and evaluate and delete the fault memory
if there are any faults.
