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.
Examples of potential power sources include:
- Battery packs (example)
- Vehicle cigarette outlet (example)
- Wall power outlet (example)
- Vehicle battery

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