You’ll need a company card and a driver card to operate the tachograph properly.
You can apply for these cards either at your local trade office or at vehicle registration and technical inspection authority offices.
The first step is to register the tachograph with the company card.
Make sure you have enough printer paper rolls in the vehicle.
You must also comply with the regular intervals that are prescribed for checking the device, meaning you must visit an authorised tachograph specialist workshop every 2 years.
Tachograph repairs and calibrations may only be carried out by authorised specialist workshops.
You can usually find relevant information in the operating manual, which must always be in the vehicle. If you don’t have this manual, we recommend that you purchase one from our dealers or a specialist workshop.
For reading out the driver cards (every 28 days at the latest) and the mass memory of the digital tachograph (every 90 days at the latest), we recommend our current DLK Pro Downloadkey with the article number A2C59515252. It contains an integrated card reader for reading out driver cards. If you have this key, you don’t need a licence card to unlock the integrated card reader.
However, the key only reads out and archives the data – you can’t display and evaluate any data with it.
Our TIS-Web Data Management online solution is ideal for evaluating driver and vehicle data.
The monthly fees for this depend on the number of vehicles and users recorded and the range of functions used, which can be flexibly selected in various user levels.
All you have to do is transfer the vehicle and driver card data to the TIS-Web platform. The data is then backed up in a professional data centre.
We do not offer access to TIS-Web in our webshop. We recommend that you contact one of our specialist dealers for this.
We can offer you our DLKPro TIS-Compact (article number A2C59515262) as an alternative here. It’s almost like the DLK Pro Downloadkey, because if you have it, you don’t need a licence card to activate the integrated card reader. However, the difference is that the DLK Pro TIS-Compact is restricted to a fleet of up to 5 vehicles and up to 10 drivers. This key also differs from the normal DLK Pro in that it contains software you can install on your PC or laptop. This means you can store the data locally on your computer and also display and evaluate it. If you decide to use the DLK Pro TIS-Compact, you don’t need additional TIS-Web access.
