Clip on CAN Interface - Data Sheet


The Clip on CAN Interface provides a quick and convenient way of tapping onto a CAN Bus when recording vehicle signals using Racelogic data logging systems. Using an innovative clip-on design, it eliminates the need to hard-wire directly onto the CAN Bus and can be easily fitted by most users.

Available with Mini-Din, Lemo, Fischer or D Type connectors, the RLACS182 is suitable for use with most Racelogic systems.
