Product Description

Intelligent by Design

The incorporation of a CAN-Bus system allows for a seamless connection of the vehicle Control Module (VMC) and Engine Control Module (ECM). This allows immediate exchange and accessibility to all data. Additional benefits include a significant reduction in wiring as well as increased functionality over conventional systems. The CAN-Bus system also delivers excellent reliability and full diagnosis capabilities, simplifying the servicing of the truck.
