The CANmod.temp is a four-channel (+ambient temperature) thermocouple sensor module. The module supports all common thermocouple probe types.

The output signals are transmitted via CAN-bus. The module can be integrated into existing CAN-bus applications to add position information. The CAN-bus ID, ID format and frequency can be configured individually for each output signal. Additionally, the module can be configured in “poll-mode” to only provide data on requests.

For a full list of signals refer to the Signals specification. The signals are also described in a DBC file format.

The module is configured by placing a configuration file on the device via USB.


The CANmod.temp can be installed stand-alone in 5 V/12 V/24 V systems or can be used as an extension module with the CANedge series of CAN-bus data loggers.

If used as an CANedge extension module, make sure to enable the CANedge 2nd port 5 V power out and use a fixed bit rate on Channel 2 to match the CANmod.temp (default 250k). Also, ensure that the CANmod termination is enabled.


The decoding rules are defined by the provided CANmod.temp DBC file
