Single sided CAN bus multiplex system trainer

The ConsuLab MP-1918-1S is a single-sided CAN Bus Multiplex trainer that communicates in J-1939 protocol. Digital and analog inputs and outputs can be activated. Analog signals can be displayed using the J-1939 display. The trainer utilizes the “Moduponent®” design feature which allows unlimited expansion capabilities. This unit is equipped with an integrated electronic fault box containing 12 faults.

Technical Details

Product code MP-1918-1S_053037

Educational Advantages

The MP-1918-1S Trainer uses SAE J1939 communications protocol to operate a 4 module CAN Bus network , which includes both a DLC and a Deutch Connector;

The trainer demonstrates common multiplexing circuit controls via a high speed CAN Bus network;

Students connect modules and components using included jumper wires;

The MP-1918-1S can be used as a CAN Bus demonstration trainer, or, using the included comprehensive student lab manual, as a CAN Bus training course;

Built in electronic fault box allows fault insertion into circuits for diagnostic training and student comprehension;

CAN Bus diagnostics can be taught using a DMM and DSO to look at Bus resistance, wake up signal and high speed information packets;

Diagnostic strategies learned on the MP-1918-1S are easily transferred to a vehicle.
