DB9 DC Power Splitter Cable

DB9 to DB9/DC Power Splitter

Need to log CAN bus data - with an external power supply?

With the DB9-to-DB9/DC power splitter, you'll be able to power e.g. your CAN logger via a power outlet, battery or e.g. cigarette receptacle. The DC female connector is a standard 5.5 mm (ID, inner diameter) x 2.1 mm (CPD, center pin diameter).

The adaptor is great for test setups, machine logging or vehicles where no power is provided by the DB9 connector (or you prefer not to use the CAN bus power supply).

About the DB9-DC adapter

The DB9-DB9/DC adapter lets you power your CANedge/CLX000 via an external power supply - e.g. if no power is available via the CAN connector.

The DC connector is 5.5 mm (ID) x 2.1 mm (CPD), meaning that it fits most standard power supply options.

Below are two use case examples where the power splitter can be applied:

Industrial Automation CAN Bus Data Logger

Mobile battery pack as power source

Need to log ad hoc data from production machines?

In many industrial automation cases, a machine based on CAN will have a DB9 connector port. However, in some cases only the CAN L/H pins will be connected in the DB9 pinout - and no power will be supplied for the CAN logger. In this scenario, you'll need to supply your device with external power. Here, the DB9-DB9/DC splitter is great for e.g. adding power via a small battery pack.

Quick desktop configuration & testing

Need to power your CAN logger during desktop testing?

In desktop development, you'll sometimes have CAN based prototype modules (e.g. vehicle ECUs) that you want to log data from via the CANedge/CLX000. If there is no built-in power supply in the module, you can use the adapter to e.g. power your CAN logger via a wall power outlet using standard transformers. This way you can both stream and log data straight from your desktop.

ECU Prototype Vehicle Development CAN Logger

Some users like to configure their CANedge2 by their desk and test the WiFi connection from there.

This can be done without a CAN bus by using this adapter and a power supply. In turn, this lets you e.g. test the upload of the CANedge2 Device File and Configuration File. For e.g. fleet management where you may need to deploy large volumes of CANedge2 units, this can be a convenient solution to ensure everything is set up correctly before heading to the field.
