About the M12 5-pin connector cable

The DB9-M12 adapter cable is suited for use in most maritime vessels and in many industrial automation applications. The cable lets you connect your CANedge/CLX000 CAN logger directly to the CAN bus - providing access to the CAN bus, as well as providing input power/ground for your CAN logger.

Below are two use cases examples where the DB9-J1939 adapter is useful:

M12 DB9 Marine Telematics NMEA 2000

Marine telematics

Need to log NMEA 2000 data from a maritime vessel?

In marine telematics applications you may need to collect NMEA 2000 data to an SD card or to your own server. Here, the CANedge can be deployed easily with the M12-DB9 adapter cable, which matches most boat/ship CAN bus connectors. Simply connect the device to power it and start logging data. See also our marine telematics intro.

CANopen data logger

Need to diagnose rare machine errors?

If you're trying to diagnose a rare/intermittent error in your machinery, it can be useful to deploy a CANedge1 with cyclic logging to record raw CAN bus data to an SD card. Here, the M12-DB9 adapter can be useful as it is directly compatible with several CANopen industrial machinery applications. See also our CANopen data logger intro or our predictive maintenance guide.

The M12-DB9 adapter fits several maritime and industrial CAN busapplications, but you should always verify what connector is used in your specific application up-front, including whether the pin-out is compatible.
