CAN Test Box

The CAN Test Box gives you easy access to the 16 pins of the diagnostic connector that is fitted to all modern vehicles. Depending on the configuration of the vehicle, this may allow you to check power, ground and CAN Bus signal quality. With the test leads supplied you can connect your PicoScope automotive scope, or any other suitable scope, to the CAN Test Box to monitor any signals present, such as the CAN High and Low signals.

 

The CAN Test Box connects to a vehicle᾿s OBDII / EOBD
connector and lets you easily diagnose electrical faults.

  • Instantly check power and ground circuits
  • Identify communication link protocols
  • Connect an oscilloscope for signal capture and collection of signal waveform data

How does it work?

The CAN Test Box uses numbered backlit LEDs which illuminate when signal data is present on the corresponding pin of the DLC. Pulsing LEDs indicate signals being pulled high/low.

The LEDs indicate the following signals:

“I like the portabiliy of the box and the fact that it
gives me the information I need quickly and dependably.”

The CAN Test Box allows you to connect your PicoScope oscilloscope, or any other compatible scope, enabling you to monitor any signals present, such as the CAN High and Low signals. The CAN Test Box terminal pin ports are accessible with standard 4 mm  jacks.

The CAN Test Box includes a 2.5 metre (8.2 feet) cable so that you can work in a convenient location away from the diagnostic connector, and an additional pass–through connector so that you can hook up your scan tool at the same time as your scope. The box is powered by the diagnostic connector, so no batteries or mains adaptor are needed.
