Product Description

Free Shipping Within the United States!

The CANLogger2000 has an internal real-time clock with battery backup for enhanced diagnostic capabilities.

The CANLogger2000 offers simple and user friendly logging of data from a CAN-bus without the use of a computer. Data are stored on a standard SD-card in a simple format such that it can be directly loaded into an analysis tool for further post processing. The logged data can be transferred to a PC using a standard mini-USB cable and requires no special software.

For advanced users, the device offers a wide range of configuration possibilities, such as message filtering, down-sampling, automatic bit-rate detection, cyclic-logging, heartbeat signal and runtime logging control. Further, recently added features include the ability to transmit up to 20 custom CAN messages (for use in e.g. OBD-II logging) and a new serial interface letting the logger act as a CAN interface for streaming real-time data (incl. integration with Wireshark via CANvas).

The ability to enable message filtering and configure which data fields to log combined with the huge available storage capacity makes the device suitable for long-term stand-alone data logging.

The device configuration can be done on a PC and requires no special software. To simplify the device configuration and to test the CAN-bus connection, the device supports real-time CAN-bus traffic to be displayed directly on a PC using the USB-connection.

The device uses a standard D-sub 9 connector to connect to the CAN-bus and a removable mini-USB cable to connect to a PC. Refer to the product manual for a connector pinout.

Free CAN Bus Software: CANvas - Configure, Stream, Convert 04:28

CANvas is a powerful, simple and free software tool for use with the CANLoggerX000 series of CAN bus data loggers from In this video we present how you can use the tool to configure your logger, stream real-time data and convert raw CAN bus data into scaled engineering values. For an overview & download links, check out our official page: Key features of the tool include: CONFIGURATION - Logger ID, data separator, file split limit (e.g. new log every 100 MB) - Bit rate incl. optional auto-detection and Silent/'Listen Only' mode - Customizable RTC and date/timestamp format (CANLogger2000/3000) - Cyclic Logging: Delete oldest files when SD card is full - Heartbeat Signal: Receive status message every second from the logger - Control Signal: Optionally use custom trigger CAN ID to turn logging on/off - Transmit: Add custom CAN messages to be sent periodically (e.g. for OBD2) - Filtering: Specify message filters & down-sampling to focus your logging - NEW: For the CANLogger3000, you can also easily configure the WiFi settings LIVE STREAMING: - Advanced and highly customizable message/data filtering - Plugin DBC support to stream human-readable data (aka engineering values) - Plugin OBD2 dissector, allowing you to convert all standard parameters - Plugin ‘Live View’ (trace), showing a fixed view of unique CAN IDs and highlighting all changes to data bytes - powerful for CAN sniffing/hacking - Intuitive real-time graphical plots of converted data (e.g. OBD2, J1939, …) - Easily export to multiple formats incl. *.csv, *.c, *.txt and more - Load a CANLoggerX000 log file to leverage the Wireshark & Plugin features - Connect to the logger while data logging and leverage all the above DATA CONVERSION: - Easily load DBC files for use in conversion (e.g. SAE J1939) - Built-in support for FMS conversion rules (buses, trucks) - Load batches of log files & link together based on session IDs - Add custom conversion rules incl. name, start bit, length, scale, offset etc. - Optionally down-sample the logged data to e.g. 5 minute interval output - Add custom columns to the output file - Customize output timestamp to e.g. be interpreted as date & time in Excel - NEW: Merge multiple log files together into one output file - NEW: Convert raw log files into Vector CANalyzer or PEAK formats - NEW: Add summary statistics to down sampled data (standard dev, min, max) You can find many more great guides in our GUIDES section: In particular, we recommend checking out the following: 1) CAN BUS INTERFACE STREAMING WITH WIRESHARK: 2) REVERSE ENGINEERING CAN BUS MESSAGES WITH WIRESHARK 3) DBC CAN BUS CONVERSION IN WIRESHARK: J1939 EXAMPLE If any questions, please contact us!
