Technoton Crocodile Contactless J1708 is designed for safe data reading from J1708 bus (SAE J1587) vehicles. The contactless reader is used within vehicle telematics and GPS tracking systems for receiving various parameters of vehicle operation from the bus: speed, RPM, oil pressure & temperature, fuel volume & consumption, etc.
Data reading occurs without an electrical connection and without damaging wires. 1708Crocodile works in “listen” mode only, i.e. it does not change original J1708 messages and does not send any signals to CANbus.
