NZEFI Link G4+ / G4X CAN / Dash Extension Cable
This cable is used when connecting a digital dash or any other device via CAN-bus to a Link G4+ / G4X ECU.
It is intended to be used in conjunction with our NZEFI Link G4+ / G4X Plug-in ECU to CAN Cable , NZEFI Link G4+ / G4X Wire-in ECU Header Connector to CAN / Dash Cable or NZEFI Link G4+ / G4X Wire-in ECU (with Round CAN Connector) to CAN / Dash Cable
Available in a choice of lengths – 1m, 1.5m and 2m
The extension cable contains two CAN wires (CAN-HI, CAN-LOW) which are a twisted pair power and ground wires for the device. 4-way Deutsch DTM connectors are terminated at each end. The female end connects to the ECU to CAN cable that continues into the ECU enclosure. The male end connects to the device (usually a digital dash) and it’s female mating connector (connector housing, terminals and wedge) can be purchased as an option.
Also available is an option for the cable to have a 120 Ohm termination resistor fitted to the end. Note that most digital dashes and many other CAN devices already have internal CAN termination resistors, so the optional resistor is often not required. However, one example where it’s convenient to have the resistor fitted to the extension cable is when using a Link CAN-Lambda, particularly with the longest 2m extension length.
- There is no redundant wiring
- CAN wiring is a twisted pair, improving reliability
- Power and ground wiring is included
- Uses a commonly available, sealed Deutsch connector
Note that Link G4 and Vipec V series ECU’s with a serial number below #10000 require a small hardware change to be used with CAN-based devices. Please contact us for further information if you are using an earlier ECU. All Link G4 or Vipec V series ECU’s after serial #10000 and all G4+, G4X or Vipec i series ECUs require no changes.
