Product Description

The gaugeART Analog to CAN Converter is an expansion module for aftermarket ECUs, race dashes, and gaugeART display products.

The gaugeART Analog to CAN Converter converts analog sensors and switches to CAN messages. The Analog to CAN Converter features inputs for up to five 0-5V inputs (boost pressure, oil pressure, fuel pressure, etc) or switches, one dedicated FlexFuel channel, and up to two temperature sensors (oil temperature, coolant temperature, etc).

Usage examples:

      • add-on for aftermarket ECU or race dash: for ECUs and race dashes that allow configurable CAN inputs, the gaugeART Analog to CAN Converter can add additional analog inputs. This is the perfect addition to a race dash like the AEM CD-7 that lacks analog inputs. Using the gaugeART Analog to CAN Converter – analog inputs including fuel level sensors can be added.31-001_example-1


      • OEM vehicle with out aftermarket ECU: the gaugeART Analog to CAN Converter, along with analog sensors, can be used with gaugeART display products like the gaugeART CAN Video Gauge Adapter and gaugeART CAN Gauge to display gauges such as boost pressure, wideband oxygen sensor, oil temperature, etc. on any video display with an available input. Use this along with the gaugeART OBD Link to display OBD parameters from the factory ECU plus additional analog sensors.


      • add-on for aftermarket ECU with gaugeART device:  for ECUs that allow configurable CAN inputs, the gaugeART Analog to CAN Converter can add additional analog inputs. A gaugeART device can also be added to display sensor data from ECU and from gaugeART Analog to CAN Converter at the same time.


    • Inputs: 8 inputs – 5 analog or switch inputs, 1 dedicated FlexFuel input (50-150 hz)  and 2 temperature inputs
    • Small enclosure: small (4.4″ x 2.5″) mountable enclosure
    • Easy wiring: The gaugeART Analog to CAN Converter includes an easy-to-wire terminating block connector that allows any wire size between 18-24 AWG to be installed. This connector includes a sensor ground and reference +5V for sensors.
    • Flexible CAN messaging: In addition to the pre-configured gaugeART-compatible data format, the gaugeART Analog to CAN Converter is flexible for different ECU requirements. Switches can be configured to allow a data rate of 250 kb/s, 500 kb/s, or 1000 kb/s and 11 bit or 29 bit addresses.
    • Switchable terminating resistor: the gaugeART Analog to CAN Converter features an switchable terminating resistor – allowing it to be first or last in line of a CAN network. 
    • Sensor compatibility: Any compatible 0-5v sensor may be used. For gaugeART display products – common temperature sensors and pressure sensors (3 BAR MAP, 4 BAR, 5 BAR, 0-100 PSI, 0-150 PSI, 0-500 PSI, 0-1000 PSI) are supported.
    • Daisy chain: Up to four Analog to CAN Converters can be daisy-chained.
