Automotive CAN-bus

A modern automobile can have as many as 70 electrical control units for various systems, such as engine control unit, transmission, antilock braking, cruise control, electronic power steering and many more. Some of these systems may form independent subsystems, but for others, communication between units are essential. Digital BUS systems have been widely incorporated in the electronic control units in automobiles for communication between units. CAN-bus systems are popular in modern commercial vehicles due to its diagnostics capabilities, management and ease of implementation.

The CAN-Bus trainer from Bestech Australia is capable of demonstrating realistic CAN-bus system in the modern vehicles, including trucks and multiplex lighting system. The panel is also available as single sided or optional double-sided trainer which allows multiple students to work on one equipment.
