Verify the correct functioning and conformance of a Smart Tachograph card

The UL Smart Tachograph Card Help Desk Tool (HDT) is intended for Smart Tachograph Card manufacturers or personalizers, as well as OEMs or EU Member States who want to test and/or verify the correct functioning and regulatory conformance of a Smart Tachograph card issued to a card holder.

After issuing Smart Tachograph cards, sooner or later, used cards will return from the field for which problems have been reported. The UL Smart Tachograph Card Help Desk Tool is a test tool that can be used to analyse Smart Tachograph cards that have been returned from the field after usage. The UL Smart Tachograph Card Help Desk Tool verifies that the returned Smart Tachograph card is functioning, analyses data that has been written to the Smart Tachograph card, and reports in which structures on the card the data is not in accordance with EU Commission Implementation Regulations regarding Smart Tachograph cards. Also, the UL Smart Tachograph Card Help Desk Tool gives an overview of all data that is present on the card.

The UL Smart Tachograph Card Help Desk Tool can be used for testing Smart Tachograph cards that have been personalized with test keys as well as Smart Tachograph cards that have been personalized with production keys.
