Product Information

Product Description

The quick to setup CANedge3 logger records timestamped CAN data (CAN/CAN FD) to an extractable 8 GB or 32 GB industrial SD card.  Data is pushed securely via 3G/4G to your own server with OTA update support. With GNSS/IMU data such as position, speed, altitude, and acceleration are included.

Ideal for telematics, R&D field tests, diagnostics and predictive maintenance.

Combine innovative design with cutting-edge components.

  • 2 x CAN (incl. CAN FD) + 2 x LIN channels
  • Months of data wit extractable 8 or 32 GB industrial SD card 
  • Popular binary MDF4 log file format
  • Advanced message filtering & transmit functionality
  • Start/stop logging triggers based on CAN ID & databytes
  • Silent mode, bit rate auto-detection, cyclic logging
  • Data compression & encryption (e.g. for GDPR, CCPA)
  • Support for CAN/LIN error frame logging
  • Fast boot time. Safely disconnect during use (power safe)

The CANedge3 provides a modern alternative with Software/APIs 100% free & open source with no subscription fees or vendor lock-in.

  • Log data to the SD and auto-upload via global 3G/4G
  • Use your own server (self-hosted or cloud)
  • Includes Super SIM
  • Simply add your SIM/server details to the config
  • Configure file split size/period to control upload frequency
  • 100% secure: HTTPS, credential encryption and more
  • Manage via over-the-air updates (firmware & configuration)
  • Power e.g. sensor-to-CAN modules via the 2nd port
  • Zero fees. Zero lock-in. Interoperable. Open source tools

 Enrich you data with cutting-edge GNSS/IMU functionality 

  • Perfect for use cases like vehicle telematics
  • Add 40+ GNSS/IMU signals to your 2 x CAN/LIN data
  • Full GNSS support (GPS, Galileo, BeiDou, GLONASS)
  • Built-in gyroscope (roll, pitch, yaw) and accelerometer (X, Y, Z)
  • High precision via sensor fusion - even in GNSS hostile areas
  • Signals encoded as 'internal' CAN frames (separate channel)
  • Configurable message inclusion/frequency (up to 5 Hz)
  • DBC file included for easy decoding to human-readable form
  • Optionally sync the CANedge RTC via precise GNSS time
  • Flexible deployment via external GNSS or LTE/GNSS antenna

 The software toolbox includes:

  • Editors: Easily modify your device config (online/offline)
  • CANcloud: Manage connected CANedge3 devices & data
  • S3 drive: Mount your S3 server as a 'local drive'
  • Converters: Convert data to Vector ASC, PEAK TRC, CSV, ...
  • asammdf GUI: DBC decode, plot and export your data
  • Python API: Automate your data processing & integrations
  • Dashboards: Visualize data in custom browser dashboards

Indicators LED

Logger status via 6 external LEDs: Power, CH1, CH2, Memory, LTE, GNSS


+7V to +32V DC via the Channel 1 DB9 (e.g. from the vehicle/machine power supply)


Professional-grade u-blox NEO-M9V sensor module (92-channel) with built-in gyroscope and accelerometer

Power Consumption

Very low (~1 W in normal operation, ~2.5 W during 3G/4G transfer) - no risk of battery drainage


Log raw data from CAN based protocols (J1939/FMS, CANopen, NMEA 2000, OBD2, CAN FD, UDS, ...)
