The CANM8-POWER*RPM interface will only produce a 12v+ output whenever the vehicle engine speed exceeds approximately 500 RPM.
This enables control of auxiliary equipment that could normally compromise the vehicle battery condition if connected to a standard ignition switched output.
The CANM8-POWER*RPM interface is ideal for providing power control for many equipment applications.
Some examples are: Heated Windscreen Control Auxiliary Heating / Refrigeration Systems Auxilliary Battery Charging Disabled Conversion Systems
Specialist Equipment Installations - Vehicle Conversions - High Current Applications The CANM8-POWER*RPM interface offers a solution to the difficulties encountered when installing high current draw accessories to vehicle electrical systems.
The interface features compatibility with over 200 vehicle models and provides an intelligently controlled output suitable for direct connection to a relay or auxiliary control system switched input.

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, antilock 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.
