CL-CAN

Contactless CAN bus sensor

Collect valuable information from your vehicle! Analyze the CAN bus data with a professional contactless CAN reader method!

Inventure Contactless CAN Sensor ensures safe data reading from the internal communication network of the vehicles. Without cutting, crimping the CAN bus wire the sensor can be connect to the information. Without contact any vehicle warranty and safety issues can be avoided. Sensor can be useful with any aftermarket device that requires vehicle CAN bus data such as automatic vehicle locating system, fleet management system, vehicle status display, fuel control etc.

How the CAN bus reader sensor works

  • Inventure Contactless CAN sensor reliably reads to the vehicle’s raw CAN signals without interfering with the CAN cable’s integrity
  • The contactless sensor embraces the vehicle’s CAN cables
  • It reads and forwards the CAN bus signals
  • The immediate feedback of the proper installation is provided by a status LED for reliable implementation
  • The sensor can either be used together with Inventure FMS Gateway or independently, with any GPS based vehicle tracking (AVL) systems

CAN bus sensor types

CL-CAN 7-32 V
Inventure Contactless CAN Sensor
Power Supply 7-32 V

Acquiring of vehicle related technical information requires connection to CAN bus. Intrusive methods are highly not recommended in order to keep CAN bus integrity and avoid any vehicle warranty issues. Inventure Automotive has developed a contactless listening adapter for safe data reading from CAN bus of the vehicle without creating direct, wire-to-wire connection.

During the development of Inventure Contactless CAN sensor it was very important that the contactless device is compatible not only with Inventure FMS Gateway CAN bus interface but with any independent telematics boxes. As follows Inventure offers safe connection and data reading to any System Integrators or Fleet Management service providers.
