The SU-5000H will track successfully where other devices just give up.

This fantastic technology allows the GPS to predict which satellites are in orbit above it and to dramatically reduce the time-to-first-fix of the GPS, and the overall performance of the GPS, especially in ‘urban canyon’ or forested environments.

Flexible Logging Parameters

The SU-5000H trip logging is flexible and can be configured to log based on a variety of parameters including:

  • Elapsed time
  • Distance travelled
  • Change in heading
  • Change in speed
  • On Stationary
  • Accelerometer events (harsh driving)

Accident and Rollover Detection

The SU-5000H uses the built-in accelerometer to detect high G impacts such as accidents and rollovers and reports these events to the server for emergency alerting.

Harsh Driving

The SU-5000H automatically calibrates its built-in 3 axis accelerometer and uses this to detect harsh driving events:

  • Excessive acceleration
  • Harsh braking
  • Cornering at speed

These events are logged in the SU-5000H along with additional event statistics that allow back-end server platforms to perform sophisticated driver profiling and scoring.

Accident Data

The SU-5000H keeps a second-by-second “blackbox” recording of valuable GPS and accelerometer data for a two hour window. This data can be automatically uploaded to the server when an accident is detected, or it can be requested manually.

Driver Identification

The SU-5000H supports a number of ways to identify a driver:

  • RFID reader and a card or keyfob
  • 5 digit keypad to enter a PIN code
  • Console with built-in RFID reader
  • iButton 1-wire reader

Driver Lists

The SU-5000H can be updated from the server with lists of Drivers that are allowed to drive the vehicle that it is installed in. When a driver or operator registers on the SU-5000H it will check the Driver List to see if that person is authorised to drive the vehicle. The list also includes information about the driver such as whether they can perform supervisor functions.

The SU-5000H can be installed to immobilise a vehicle and only allow authorised drivers / operators to drive it, or to annoy an unauthorised driver with a loud buzzer.


The SU-5000H has the capacity to hold hundreds of geo-fences that can be downloaded to it from the server. The SU-5000H can use this geo-fence information to:

  • Implement arrival and departure alerts
  • Implement speeding zones with audible warning alerts
  • Implement “No-go” and “Keep-out” areas
  • Automatically control outputs, for example to switch on warning lights when inside a special area
  • Warn drivers when approaching dangerous intersections
  • Disable data communications within intrinsically safe areas

Emulated Ignition

This setting allows the SU-5000H to determine that a trip has started based on accelerometer and GPS data and to automatically set the ‘ignition’ input on the device to emulate the ignition line.

This means that the SU-5000H can be installed with the option of not wiring in the ignition line and ‘emulating’ the ignition based on movement.

Run Detect

This setting allows the SU-5000H to monitor the system voltage and to detect changes in the voltage that indicate if the engine is running or not.


Hardware Features

Compact rugged housing

Made of sturdy UV resistant plastic the housing clips together for easy assembly, and has 2 convenient mounting tabs.

Dimensions: 125mm x 65mm x 30mm
Weight: 250 grams


24 pin connector

A basic harness is supplied as standard with the SU-5000H.

See the SU-5000H user manual for connector pin details.

Automotive power


8V to 45V DC

Operating Current

15mA average (battery fully charged)

135mA average (battery charging)

Sleep Current


The SU-5000H passes stringent automotive power “load dump” tests to ensure that it will continue to operate in the harshest electrical systems. A built-in self-resetting fuse makes installation easy and safe.

Operating Temperature

-30°C to +85°C 1

1) On external power.

Below 0°C the standard internal backup battery’s ability to deliver sufficient power to operate the cellular modem is reduced. Below 0°C and above +45°C the internal backup battery will not be charged as a safety precaution due to dangers associated with charging batteries at extreme temperatures.

For battery powered tracking in extreme temperatures enquire about our SU-6800 tracker with extended temperature range battery options.

High sensitivity GPS


Supports concurrent GLONASS and other GNSS systems
72 channel high sensitivity receiver
-167dBm industry leading tracking performance
Battery backed up for optimal hot-start performance
AssistNow Offline aiding data for extremely fast time-to-first-fix and performance in urban canyon environments

Concurrent GPS and GLONASS

The SU-5000H supports position tracking using both the American GPS satellites and the Russian GLONASS system concurrently. This results in amazingly fast and accurate tracking with double the number of satellites available for use.

Low noise GPS amplifier

GPS signals are boosted by a special low-noise amplifier (LNA)
This allows the SU-5000H to operate where normal units will fail to receive GPS signal


3G (NextG) and Iridium


CE, A-Tick, ICASA, others in progress

Iridium SBD

Global coverage – anywhere in the world.

The SU-5000H can be fitted with an Iridium SBD module that allows it to communicate via the Iridium satellite network. The SU-5000H will automatically switch over to using Iridium communications when out of range of the cellular networks.

WiFi (optional)

Save SIM data costs.

The SU-5000H can be fitted with a WiFi FlexiCard – allowing it to communicate on a WiFi network.

Internal Antennae*

Internal GPS and cellular antennae
Having the primary antennae inside the housing makes for very simple and quick installation. The SU-5000H has had its antennae tuned by the top laboratories to ensure optimal performance.
*Iridium modem and other wireless FlexiCards may require an external antenna

Backup battery

The standard 800mAh LiPo backup battery allows the SU-5000H to operate when external power is removed for up to 4 days, depending on the amount of movement
Optional HUGE battery pack of 1800mAh available on special order

5 x Digital Inputs

1 x Ignition line
4 x digital inputs with configurable pull-up / pull-down
Numerous configuration options including switches, duress/panic alerts, pulse counting

2 x Digital Outputs

2 x switched ground digital outputs, easily wired up to switch external lights, relays, buzzers, sirens, motors and other devices
Can be used to immobilise a vehicle

Internal Buzzer

Audible alert without requiring the installation of an external buzzer. Can be used for speeding alerts, harsh driving alerts, reminders to swipe RFID tags, error conditions and other events

Diagnostic LED

The diagnostic LED makes it easy to see if the device is operating correctly

3 axis accelerometer

The 3 axis accelerometer allows the SU-5000H to detect harsh driving events (harsh acceleration, braking and cornering) and this information can be used to monitor driver behaviour and unsafe driving.
It also allows the SU-5000H to go to ‘sleep’ when not moving, resulting in extremely low standby current.


Communicate with common one-wire iButton devices


RS232 receive and transmit allow the SU-5000H to communicate with external RS232 devices. These can include fuel monitoring, Garmin FMI, tyre pressure monitoring

The RS232 interface can also be used to configure the device and to test and debug.

Switched 5V out

The SU-5000H can provide power to external peripherals via this 5V power line, allowing for easy installation and doing away with the need for additional external power supplies.

Maximum current: 300mA

DMCAN peripheral port

Simply Unifed has a range of peripherals that connect to the SU-5000H via the DMCAN peripheral port. Peripherals such as the RFID Driver ID reader, 5 digit keypad, data console and RF gateway use the DMCAN port.

Flash memory

The SU-5000H has sufficient memory to store over 50,000 records in its flash memory. Normally the data will be sent to the server immediately but if the device is out of range then there is sufficient space to ensure that no data is lost – for many weeks of driving!

The flash memory is also used to store parameters, GPS aiding data, accident data, driver lists, geo-fences and other important information that needs to be securely stored.
