Product Information

Product Description

This thermocouple-to-CAN module produces temperature data from 4 thermocouple sensors and outputs it via CAN bus. The module is 100% standalone - no PC required.

The module supports all thermocouple types (B, E, J, K, N, R, S, T) and can be daisy-chained for 8, 12, 16, ... channels.

You can integrate the module with any CAN bus system - e.g. to provide temperature data for your ECUs or existing CAN hardware.

As an example, you can use the module as an add-on for the CANedge - ideal for e.g. engine dynos, EGT analysis, HVAC monitoring and other temperature telematics use cases.

Probes not included


  • PLUG & PLAY: Standalone - no PC required. Integrate with any CAN bus to add temperature data. DBC included
  • COMPACT: Only 7 x 2 x 5 CM. 70G. Alu enclosure. 3 LEDs. 5-26 V DC via DB9. USB for config/firmware
  • THERMOCOUPLES: Output data from 4 thermocouple sensors at 1 Hz in one CAN frame
  • PRECISE: ±0.15% accuracy. Cold-junction compensation. Line frequency filtering. Fault detection
  • USE ANY TYPE: Independently configure each thermocouple channel type (B, E, J, K, N, R, S, T)
  • CONFIGURABLE: Configure CAN IDs, bit rate, message frequencies and more via JSON config and GUI
