Contactless reader


Contactless data reader Crocodile allows to read the data about vehicle operation without any interruption into the vehicle electronic systems’ integrity.


Three models of Crocodile are used for:


  1. safe data reading from the CAN bus (CANCrocodile);
  2. safe data reading from the J1708 bus (1708Crocodile);
  3. petrol and gas consumption control via engine injectors impulses reading and converting (NozzleCrocodile).

Crocodile is used in GPS/GLONASS vehicle monitoring systems for getting information on fuel consumption, engine operation modes, sensors state, troubleshooting, etc.
Data reading is carried out without electrical connection to the wires. 
The usage of the contactless data readers Crocodile as a part of the transport telematics systems is absolutely safe for a vehicle, invisible for onboard computer, diagnostic scanner and for other electronic systems. Especially it`s relevant to use Crocodile in guarantee cases, when connection of any electronic devices often serves as a reason to cancel the guarantee.
