CAN Communications Protocol. For MGL Avionics CAN bus devices. Release 10 16. MGL CAN Bus MGL CAN bus devices operate using standard CAN bus protocol at 250KBaud. Please note that no devices include any bus termination resistors.If you want to use a commercially available dash then you will need to use one that is already compatible with the Megasquirt CAN protocol because the other units will not work. The Megasquirt protocol is unique and doesn't send data unless a request message is sent so it's different from what most commercial units can handle.
The PDU-8 features a simple CAN bus protocol so that it can be controlled by AEM EV’s VCU200 and VCU300 directly or other programmable devices that can transmit programmable CAN bus messages. Because the PDU-8 is designed as a modular device that receives its command signals over a CAN bus, no programming of the PDU module is necessary, and all PDUs are interchangeable.
