NZEFI Link G4+ / G4X Plug-in ECU to CAN / Dash Cable
This cable is used when connecting a digital dash or any other device via CAN-bus to a Link G4+ / G4X plugin ECU.
The two CAN wires (CAN-HI, CAN-LOW) are a twisted pair and are terminated to a white 5-pin connector that plugs into its mating connector on the plug-in ECU’s board.
In order to supply power and ground to the devices(s) on your CAN-bus, power and ground wires are also included in the loom in the form of a flying lead.
These four wires are then terminated to a 4-way Deutsch DTM connector at a length of approximately 200mm. This provides enough length for the loom to exit the ECU and Deutsch connector allows for the ECU to be disconnected from the vehicle easily. The mating side of the 4-way Deutsch DTM connector can also be supplied as an optional variation (connector housing, terminals and wedge).
We believe that this cable is superior to the Link CAN to PCB cable (Link pt# CANPCB) for the following reasons:
- 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, not a proprietary connector as used with the Link product.
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 i series ECUs require no changes.
