034 | Introduction to CAN on ViPEC
CAN or Controller Area Network has become a prominent means of communication in modern vehicles. CAN is a two wire bus that allows high speed communication of multiple packets of information between devices. It’s common for example for an OE engine control unit, ABS computer, automatic gearbox ECU and gauge cluster to communicate via CAN.
This technology is now common in aftermarket ECUs and dashes and a basic understanding can offer us the ability to greatly simplify ECU and dash wiring. In this webinar we will look at how to set up CAN communications between an ECU and a dash. In this example we will be using the Vi-PEC plug & play ECU for our 350Z and a MoTeC C125 dash.
