DBC: (Database CAN) is a file that describes CAN data and is used to decode raw CAN Data into values that you can understand and read.

CLX1000 and CLX2000 low-cost CAN Loggers

CL1000: CAN Bus Logger & USB Interface

The plug & play CL1000 CAN logger records CAN bus data to an 8 or 32 GB SD card. The logger is 100% standalone (no PC required) and data is easily extracted via USB.

The CL1000 is ideal for vehicle development and field testing (cars, heavy duty & more).

Further, the CL1000 doubles as a powerful reverse engineering tool with live-streaming via USB in SavvyCAN.

CL2000: CAN Bus Logger & USB Interface (+RTC)

The plug & play CL2000 CAN logger records CAN bus data to an 8 or 32 GB SD card and timestamps it with a real-time clock.

Further, the CL2000 can operate as a CAN bus interface for real-time USB streaming.

The CAN logger is ideal for vehicle fleet management (trucks, buses, harvesters, cars, ...), prototype field testing, diagnostics or reverse engineering.

Send/receive data in real-time via USB

With the free SavvyCAN software, it’s easy to send/receive CAN data via USB, view raw traces, DBC decoded signals or to create visual plots. The software also adds powerful reverse engineering tools.

The CLX000 (CL1000 & CL2000) can stream raw CAN data via USB to your PC for real-time analysis:
  • Stream raw CAN data in flexible views (filters, traces, ...)
  • Send CAN frames into your CAN bus with real-time control
  • Display human-readable form via DBC files (incl. J1939)
  • Create real-time plots of decoded signals like speed, RPM, ...
  • Highlight bit/byte changes per CAN ID via the 'sniffer view'
  • Quickly plot 'hypothesis signals' for reverse engineering
  • Load CLX000 log files for post processing analysis

Product Description

The plug ∓ play CLX000 is a simple-to-use CAN logger. The device logs CAN data to an 8-32 GB SD card or streams it via USB to a PC.

The two devices: CL1000 and CL2000, are similar except that the CL2000's data is date & time stamped via a real-time clock with battery backup.

The CLX000 is used in blackbox logging, reverse engineering or simple telematics use cases. For logging or WiFi/LTE use cases. For improved functionality, see the ‘2nd generation’ CANedge series.

Compact CAN logger + interface

The CLX000 lets you both log raw CAN data to an 8-32 GB SD card and/or stream it via USB in real-time:

  • Power via DB9 connector (<1W power consumption)
  • Auto-detect bit rate - no configuration required
  • Log raw CAN data in simple CSV format
  • Easily extract data from the SD card via USB
  • Configure device via simple CONFIG.INI file or editor
  • Silent mode, filters, transmit lists, cyclic logging
  • Timestamp data via real-time clock (CL2000 only)
  • Stream data in real-time via USB in SavvyCAN
  • Transmit custom data with real-time control
  • DBC convert logged/streamed data via free software
