VBOX Vehicle CAN Interface

Posted in Modules


CAN02-frontThe VBOX Vehicle CAN Interface is a CAN gateway which translates from one CAN Bus into another. The unit is designed to recognise 16 different variables being transmitted on a CAN bus, and then re-transmits them in a form that the VBOX can log along with the normal VBOX channels.

The CAN Interface can be programmed to read almost any format in a CAN message, and then assign a name, multiplier, and offset. This information is then re-transmitted onto the VBOX CAN bus and is recorded at 20Hz to the compact flash card.

Transfer of VBOX data to the vehicle bus is blocked to prevent unnecessary Bus loading.

Racelogic can also supply CAN sets for a number of manufacturers, allowing various parameters to be logged. For an application list please see our CAN Database.
