J. J. Keller Electronic Logging Hardware

J. J. Keller has two electronic logging devices on the market. Each device has the capability of being provisioned as an AOBRD (up till 12/17/17) or an ELD. Both devices connect to the engine's diagnostic port. Engine data is transmitted via Bluetooth to the driver's smart device and then relayed via cellular to the J. J. Keller Encompass back office.
