Easy CAN Acquisition
Simply Pinch Over Wire Insulation



The SP7001 and SP7002 are CAN and CAN FD signal sensors that use non-contact technology to accurately capture CAN bus signals necessary for vehicle and next-generation equipment evaluation and development. Improve testing productivity and efficiency by eliminating the need to peel away cable insulation or use a sub-harness that is traditionally required to obtain signals.

Key Features

  • Acquire CAN FD/CAN data immediately, simply by pinching probes over wire insulation with one-hand
  • Eliminate concerns by using non-contact sensing technology
  • Use in a diverse array of development and evaluation applications that demand reliability

    • Vehicle CAN Bus Monitoring is Easier than Ever

      The SP7001, SP7002 Non-Contact CAN Sensor allows you to acquire CAN bus signals from outside the wire coating. CAN signals are the main control signals inside a car. Until now, engineers needed to spend immense man-hours to process the CAN bus wire. With the Non-contact CAN sensor, monitoring CAN data is easier than ever. Since wires remain undamaged, the CAN bus remains unaffected even during monitoring.


      Non-Contact CAN Sensor SP7001 : Capture vehicle network CAN signals over cable insulation

      The SP7001 Non-Contact CAN Sensor is designed to capture CAN signals simply by clipping over the insulation of differential CAN bus wires. Eliminate impact to the ECU (Engine Control Unit) for stable and steady analysis and reduce prep time before testing.

      Monitor CAN FD/CAN signals without a sub-harness

      1. No modification of vehicle cables Acquire CAN data immediately, simply by hooking probes to the cables. 2. No impact on the CAN bus or ECUs Eliminate testing concerns by using non-contact sensing technology. 3. Accurate, reliable signal capture Use in a diverse array of development and evaluation applications that demand reliability.

      New approach means dramatically fewer man-hours

      Capture CAN signals without the need to fabricate sub-harnesses or strip back cable insulation so as to significantly reduce the number of manhours spent on test preparation.

      Easy setup

      Hook the probes to insulated CAN cables. Now you’re ready to acquire signals.

      Continue using your existing CAN analysis system

      Industry-standard CAN output connector pin layout. Customers who already have a CAN analysis system such as those manufactured by Vector Informatik GmbH need only connect the sensor to that system’s input terminal (via a D-sub 9-pin connector).

      Wide -40°C to 85°C operating temperature

      Acquire CAN signals in environments from -40°C to 85°C (-40°F to 185°F), the temperature range required in vehicle testing.

      Power with 12 V and 24 V vehicle batteries and other sources

      Use a DC power supply with the Power Cable L9500*1, a standard accessory. If using commercial AC power, use the AC Adapter Z1008*2. *1 Included with the SP7100. *2 Sold separately as an option.

      Connect probes without worrying about CAN bus polarity

      If you’re using automatic input polarity mode, the SP7001/SP7002 will automatically switch the input polarity to ensure you can capture CAN signals properly, even if the probes are connected in reverse relative to the CAN bus’s polarity (CAN_High/CAN_Low).

      Adjustable sensitivity accommodates a variety of conditions

      Use high-sensitivity mode to broaden the detection level when the CAN signal amplitude is low relative to the CAN standard or when you are unable to detect a signal due to cable conditions.

      Designed not to trigger ECU security lock-outs

      The SP7001/SP7002 acquires signals without changing the electrical characteristics of the CAN bus. Even if the vehicle is equipped with an ECU that has a security lock-out function designed to detect changes in the CAN bus’s electrical characteristics, you’ll be able to carry out testing without worrying about getting locked out.

      Vibration resistance designed for on-road testing

      The sensor delivers noise immunity designed for in-vehicle testing in a variety of road environments. Acquire CAN signals in a stable manner in evaluation testing not only on test courses, but also in vehicles undergoing test-drives on public roads.
