Contactless reader CANCrocodile

CANCrocodile allows to get the data about vehicle running from CAN bus without any interruption into the bus integrity.
Data reading is occurred without electrical connection to the wires.
CANCrocodile is used to connect GPS/GLONASS vehicle monitoring systems to the CAN bus which receive information about engine running modes, sensors conditions, troubleshooting and etc.

CANCrocodile doesn`t break CAN wires isolation and “listens” to exchange over the bus with the help of a special wireless receiver.
