CAN to Analogue/ Digital Output Module

Log data from a CAN bus with data logging equipment not incorporating a CAN interface.

  • Converts CAN bus data into voltage and digital output
  • 4 analogue outputs
  • 7 digital outputs

The CAN to Analogue/Digital Output Module (DAC01) is designed to convert CAN bus data into voltage and digital output. In this way it is possible to log data from a CAN bus with data logging equipment not incorporating a CAN interface.

Four analogue voltage outputs are available and these can be mapped using the VBOX Setup software to output virtually any CAN bus parameter. An example might be throttle position data read from CAN and converted into a 0 to 10 V signal.

The module is also equipped with seven digital outputs, of which four can be set as frequency generators.
