Product Overview: 

As part of the MurphyLink® family, CANdrive offers a cost-effective instrument solution for modern electronic engines. CANdrive modules read engine ECU CAN bus/J1939 data, drive standard electric panel gages and provide LED indication of status and faults.

CANdrive has three dedicated outputs for tachometer, oil pressure and coolant temperature gages, with DIP switch selectable compatibility for Murphy, VDO or Datcon gages. For volume orders, the outputs can be custom configured for other gage types, lamps, relays or remote signaling.

CANdrive advantages include:

  • the retrofitting of existing electric gage panels to new J1939 compatible engines
  • the use of standard, economical electric gages with new J1939 engines
  • no need for installation of additional gage senders, tachometer magnetic pickups and wiring.

CANdrive is packaged in a compact, surface-mounted case with epoxy encapsulation for maximum durability and environmental sealing. Electrical connection is via a 12-way automotive type connector. Model CDV100F has a forward facing connector and one power/CAN status LED. Model CDV300R has eight LEDs for indication of J1939-transmitted engine faults and status. All models include a six-way DIP switch for flexible configuration.
