DB9 to DB9 and USB adapter cable

DB9-DB9/USB Adapter Cable

Need to log 2 x CAN/LIN data - while powering a 3G/4G USB WiFi router?

With this adapter, your CANedge2 can power a 3G/4G USB WiFi router via the 2nd port - simplifying field deployments.

At the same time, the DB9 female connector makes it easy to connect a CANmod sensor module - e.g. a CANmod.gps.

You can also use this to easily log 2 x CAN/LIN channels while powering a USB hotspot.

Note: For 3G/4G transfer we now recommend using the CANedge3

About the DB9-DB9/USB

The CANedge2 provides a configurable 5V power output via the 2nd port. This adapter lets you use this to easily power a 3G/4G USB WiFi router via this 5V output - simplifying cellular deployment use cases.

Additionally, the adapter provides an open DB9 female connector, making it easy to connect a CANmod sensor-to-CAN module. The cable provides a 5V power supply for the CANmod - while enabling the CAN communication from the CANmod to be recorded by the CANedge2 via the 2nd port.

You can of course easily combine this adapter with our DB9-DB9/DB9 Y-splitter to e.g. daisy chain CANmod modules.

Note: The connection to the USB adapter purely provides power and ground for the USB hotspot (the CANedge2 connects to the 3G/4G router via WiFi, not through the cable).

Below are some examples where a DB9-DB9/USB adapter can be useful - see also the CANedge2 or DB9-DB9/USB:

Vehicle Telematics CAN Bus GPS OBD2 Cloud Telematics Dashboard

On-road telematics with CAN + GNSS/IMU data

Need to upload CAN bus and GNSS/IMU data via 3G/4G?

The CANedge2 can upload data while on-the-road using e.g. a 3G/4G USB router. You can power the 3G/4G hotspot from the vehicle - or use our DB9-DB9/USB adapter to power both the hotspot and CANmod.gps via the 2nd port of the CANedge2. The uploaded log files can e.g. be visualized in telematics dashboards. Ideal for e.g. OEM field testing, car fleet telematics, predictive maintenance and more.

Yes, any USB WiFi router that can operate at 5V DC can be powered by the 2nd port 5V output from the CANedge2 via this adapter.

Many sensor-to-CAN modules can be powered via 5V power supply - making it very easy to connect these to the CANedge2 2nd port. Our CANmod sensor modules are specifically designed to be plug & play with the CANedge by using this power supply (and a matching pin-out).

You can connect practically any 3rd party sensor module that broadcasts data via CAN bus, as long as the module can be powered via 5 V DC. Of course, you need to determine what pin-out the external sensor module uses and ensure that you connect it using a suitable adapter cable.
