CANM8-NAV is ideal for use when installing Navigation Systems, Car Audio & Entertainment, Mobile Phone Hands Free Kits, Taxi Meters and many other systems which require sensing of vehicle systems, such as speed and ignition.
The interface features compatibility with over 100 Australian vehicle models and can be connected to a convenient point on the vehicles CAN Bus system to suit the installation.
There are 2 connections to the vehicle CAN Bus wiring (CAN Hi & CAN Lo) along with a connection to a permanent, fused 12v power supply and an earth connection.
The remaining 6 wires are conventional outputs which are generated from the CAN bus.
These outputs are:
12v Pulsed Speed Signal 12V Pulsed RPM Signal 12v Ignition On 12v Reverse Selected * 12v Illumination On * 0v Hand Brake On *
* Please note, some vehicle CAN systems do not support this output and so the output function may not be available to all installations. Please click here to download full details in PDF format.
The interface incorporates a multifunction status LED, which indicates correct connection to the CAN system, CAN activity present and confirmation that the CAN identity has been recognized.
Now available with a high frequency speed pulsed output, providing approximately 14,400 pulses per mile!!
The interface automatically identifies the CAN system it is installed to and is directly compatible with the following vehicle models utilizing CAN Bus signalling:
The CANM8-PULSE Interface should be connected as below:
RED Permanent 12v+ BLACK Ground (0v) WHITE CAN HI BLUE CAN LO PURPLE 12V+ 'Ignition On' output (1A Max) ORANGE 12V+ 'Lights On' output (1A Max) BROWN 12V+ 'Reverse Gear' output (1A Max) PINK 0V (Gnd) 'Park Brake On' output (1A Max) GREEN 12v+ Speed output (150mA Max - 1Hz / MPH approx.) YELLOW 12v+ RPM output (150mA <Max - 1Hz / RPM approx.)
WHAT IS CAN-BUS
CAN-BUS is a message based protocol, designed specifically for automotive applications but now also used in other areas such as industrial automation and medical equipment.
A modern automobile may have as many as 70 electronic control units (ECU) for various subsystems. Typically the biggest processor is the engine control unit, which is also referred to as "ECU" in the context of automobiles; others are used for transmission, airbags, speed Pulse, anti lock braking, cruise control, audio systems, windows, doors, mirror adjustment, etc. Some of these form independent subsystems, but communications among others are essential. A subsystem may need to control actuators or receive feedback from sensors. The CAN standard was devised to fill this need.
The CAN bus may be used in vehicles to connect engine control unit and transmission, or (on a different bus) to connect the door locks, climate control, speed Pulse,seat control, etc. Today the CAN bus is also used as a fieldbus in general automation environments, primarily due to the low cost of some CAN Controllers and processors.
