AEM’s 6-channel CAN — short for “controller area network” for those not in the know — Sensor Module part No. 30-2226 provides an affordable and easy way to add temperature, pressure, fuel level, and tachometer signals to an AEM CD Carbon Digital dash through AEMnet CAN bus. It supports the Bosch CAN 2.0b standard, making it compatible with many third-party devices that accept a programmable CAN bus input, which also allows you to add additional channels to a non-AEM ECU, dash or logger. That makes this sensor module wildly adaptable to many applications.

For carbureted vehicles, the 6 Channel CAN Sensor Module provides the basic channels that users need to get data onto a CD Carbon Digital Dash in a carbureted vehicle, including tachometer, fuel level, and pressure/temp sensors. Vehicle speed can be achieved by using a GPS-enabled dash or by adding a Vehicle Dynamics Module.

For 2008 and up cars with stock and reflashed ECUs, this module is the perfect add-on for CD Carbon Dash owners who are sending channels to a CD Carbon Dash from an OBDII CAN stock ECU and want to add additional channels that are not available through the factory CAN stream.

For standalone CAN-based EFI, racers who are using a non-AEM CAN-based programmable ECU and have consumed all of the inputs can use this module to add additional channels to the dash that they want to see or log. Logging requires CD Carbon Logging Dash.

The 6 Channel CAN Sensor Module includes two 0-5v analog inputs, two temp inputs, RPM input, and fuel level input. The enclosure is IP67-rated and the unit is dustproof/water-resistant. A 12-Pin DTM-style connector and pins are included. $161.

What’s included:

  •  Two (2) temperature (thermistor) inputs
  •  Two (2) dedicated 0-5V analog inputs
  •  One (1) dedicated fuel level input (0 to 250 Ohm range)
  •  One (1) tachometer/coil input
  •  Fixed CAN bus speed, header length, and base address
  •  IP67 Potted Enclosure / Sealed Connector – “dust tight” and protected against water spray
  •  Protected inputs
