What problem did you solve?

We needed to record raw CAN/J1939 data from forestry machines to estimate their productivity. In some cases, this involved reverse engineering the relevant data from the CAN bus

How did you solve it?

We used the CLX000 in two ways: For reverse engineering CAN bus data using the Wireshark plugin functionality [see also the SavvyCAN intro] - and for collecting all relevant data onto the SD card of the CLX000

What benefit has this led to?

The CLX000 has truly moved our possibilities further - at a price that was manageable within the project budget. As such, we already have new research ideas that may lead us to purchasing more CLX000 units

"Thank you for making an awesome device at an unbeatable price!"

Why did you choose the CLX000?

The combination of real-time streaming via Wireshark and data logging to an SD card is a perfect match for our needs - at an unbeatable price
