Add 4 Analog channels to your CAN bus enabled data acquisition system
AnalogX is a compact and lightweight (6 grams) 4 channel Analog to CAN I/O expander, designed to be installed in-line with your wiring harness and specially designed for the harsh automotive electrical environment.
Works with compatible CAN enabled data system – RaceCapture, AiM, MoTeC, and even some ECUs that accept CAN data as input, like Megasquirt – check your system for compatibility – see the documentation for the CAN protocol.
Connect almost any sensor
Connect temperature, pressure, linear, AFR, Boost – any 0-5v sensor and broadcast it over your CAN bus at a configurable sample rate between 1 and 255Hz (default is 50Hz)
Super lightweight and compact
Minimizing weight is paramount in race cars, and AnalogX adds only about 6 grams. It’s designed to install in-line with your wiring harness – no bulky harnesses or boxes to bolt down.
Automotive grade electronics
With an automotive grade power supply and fully buffered and protected inputs, it’s designed for the harsh electrical environment found in automobiles. The ultra-high impedance inputs won’t drag down the signal it’s measuring, so you can confidently tap into existing sensors.
Run up to 4 on the same CAN bus
Jumpers on AnalogX lets you configure 4 AnalogX devices to run on the same CAN bus, for up to 16 analog inputs!
0.5 Amp 5v reference to power your sensors
AnalogX provides a 5v voltage reference with 0.5A available to power your sensors at the edge of your sensor network.
