In modern vehicles it is often difficult to locate many feeds that were once common – including ignition feeds, speed pulse signals and reverse signals. The CB-6 CAN interface connects to the vehicle’s CAN bus and can provide the following feeds*:
- Ignition feed
- Speed pulse
- Engine speed
- Reverse gear
The CB-6 is particularly useful if you order a PC with GPS dead reckoning, which requires that the PC is provided with speed pulse and, less importantly, reverse feeds. If these cannot be obtained directly from the vehicle the CB-6 adapter can provide these.
The CB-6 is compatible with 40 vehicle manufacturers covering 350+ different models, including SAE J1939 commercial vehicles. The device is programmed to automatically detect the vehicle type for easy installation. A 12V supply line is required.
*Please note that not all feeds are available on all vehicles – please contact us for further details.
Inverse signal: 12V when ignition is off, 0V when ignition is on (requires relay)
3600 pulses per mile approx.
2 pulses per revolution
12V = Reverse, 0V = Forward
12V = On, 0V = Off
0V = On, 12V = Off
