How can I connect multiple CAN interfaces to my CAN bus network?

Use the Kvaser T-cannector v2 breakout box.

If the CAN bus network is accessed through an OBD diagnostic port, simply pair the Kvaser T-cannector v2 with Kvaser’s OBD II to DSUB9 Adapter Cable (00723-9) to connect multiple CAN devices to the network.

In any system with CAN – a car, for example – you may want to experiment with different ways of data logging and set different triggers or filters. To log standard fault conditions, a good choice is a Kvaser Memorator Light – a fully automatic datalogger that requires no set-up whatsoever. However, to configure different filters in order to determine how, when and what data should be logged on separate channels, you’ll need a more complex datalogger such as a Kvaser Memorator Pro. To connect both devices to the same CAN network, use the T-cannector v2 breakout box, which is compatible with most CAN interfaces or dataloggers and best of all, can distribute power to those that require it. Critically, you won’t need to do any soldering or wiring whatsoever – simple click and connect using the T-cannector v2, and get gathering data within minutes.
