About the generic adapter

The generic adapter cable is useful for cases where neither the J1939 or OBD2 adapters can be used directly (or the CAN logger's built-in DB9 connector).

Several applications require a custom cable. Here, the generic adapter can be used as a starting point. Further, the banana plugs are useful for powering the device in test setups.

Custom CAN Bus Adapter Create Design

Custom Adapter CAN Bus Application Robotics

Custom connector robotics application

Need to log data from a production robot with a custom connector?

Within industrial automation you will often encounter the use of the CiA DB9 connector, meaning you can directly connect a CANedge/CLX000 CAN logger. However, in some cases another connector is used (which we may not offer a direct adapter for). In these cases, the fastest way to connect your CANedge/CLX000 is to create your own adapter based on the generic-to-DB9 cable. This way you'll save time and minimize the customization required - as well as reduce the risk of errors.

We're always eager to learn what custom cable adapters you create using the generic cable. Let us know and we may start offering the cables on our site if there's sufficient demand.
