New colours for the DatacliQ
Posted by Don Ottenhof on 08 March 2021 09:12 AM

Squarell introduces the new colours for the DatacliQ: the contactless vehicle data reader for CAN Bus, SAE J1708 and ISO 11992 Bus protocols. There are four types of DatacliQs for the different protocols. Previously these were all purple, but from now on Squarell offers a different colour DatacliQ for each type.

See the overview to find out which colour belongs to which protocol.

Different colours make it easier for our customers and installers to identify what kind of DatacliQ they’re dealing with. You no longer have to look at the ID on the label anymore.

New version of iUpload available
Posted by Don Ottenhof on 10 January 2020 12:09 PM

As you may have noticed, it is not possible to synchronize with iUpload 2.7.7 or an older version. This is because Squarell recently improved its security and iUpload 2.7.7 or older were unfortunately unable to handle the new security systems. We have developed iUpload 2.7.8 where everything works as it should.


Unfortunately it is not possible to update iUpload automatically so this will have to be done manually. We therefore ask all customers to download the latest version of iUpload.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
