Electronic Log Devices

What is an ELD?


An ELD is a device that:

  • Automatically records data elements, including driving time, geographic location and time of day

  • Transfers ELD data electronically to the fleet

  • Is integrally synchronized to the engine in the truck

  • Accurately records the driver’s on-duty & driving time

  • Meets the minimum technical specifications of the ELD rule of the FMCSA mandate

  • Is registered on the FMCSA website: www.fmcsa.dot.gov/elds

Two-Types of ELDs



  • Proprietary hardware

  • Tethered to the truck


  • Requires a smartphone/tablet

  • Wireless Communication


ELD Requirements

  • They must be mounted in a fixed position viewable by the driver while seated normally.

  • They must be able to transfer data electronically when requested at a roadside inspection.

  • If the data transfer fails, the driver may present a printout from the ELD or show his display screen.

  • The ELD record must provide standardized data with a header, graph grid and detail log.
