AEM has released its 8-Channel K-Type Thermocouple EGT CAN Module (PN 30-2224) that allows racers and enthusiasts to install eight K-type thermocouple sensors onto their vehicle and receive data from the sensors via a one-plug CAN bus connection. It connects out of the box to AEM’s CD Digital Dashes and it can be configured to send data to virtually any CAN-based receiving device that has programmable CAN bus capability!
The 8-Channel K-Type EGT CAN Module includes eight K-type thermocouple inputs that use miniature K-type connectors. It accepts up to eight K-type thermocouple sensors (PN 30-2067, sold separately in 1- 2- and 4-packs) which can be used for viewing and logging various temperatures including exhaust gas temps (EGTs), cylinder head temps, pre and post intercooler temps, air temps, water temps, fluid temps, disc brake temps and more. The 8-Channel K-Type EGT CAN Module can be daisy chained to a second module allowing users to receive up to 16 temperature channels through the same CAN bus connection!
HIGHLY ACCURATE AND INTELLIGENT
The 8-Channel K-Type EGT CAN Module uses an integrated cold junction sensor to ensure lab-grade temperature readings across all eight channels. It has the ability to read better than 1% full scale, even at the extremes of the temperature range (-200 to 1372 degC/-328 to 2501 degF). The Module also includes open circuit/fault detection to notify you if a sensor loses its connection and/or needs to be replaced.
WORKS WITH NON-AEM DEVICES WITH CONFIGURABLE CAN BUS!
The Module utilizes flexible CAN configuration jumpers which allow it to be used with just about any 3rd party devices that have a configurable CAN bus. Selectable parameters include CAN bus speeds (250k, 500k, 1M), selectable header length (11- or 29-bit) and selectable base address, which allows two units to be daisy-chained together on the same bus.
Power is supplied from the 4-pin DTM connector when paired with a CD-5 Carbon or CD-7 Digital Dash, but may require wiring to a power source on 3rd party devices that do not provide power from the connected CAN device. AEM provides 4-way DTM-style connector plug in the kit to simplify the connection to non-AEM devices). AEMnet CAN bus extension cables are available separately in 2, 5- and 10-foot lengths.
