ANT/BLE to CAN Interface
Pilot-CAN V2.0 is a CAN bus interface with built in ANT and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) wireless monitoring for collection of physical (motion, force...), environmental (temperature, humidity...) and physiological data (heart rate, body temperature...). The system is designed to be used as a complement or replacement to the flagship Pilot-Mux.
- BLE/ANT+ wireless wearable compatible
- CAN bus input/output for direct connection to data loggers
- Reconfigurable wireless and wired protocol support

- Connector Wiring
- Yellowcog Embedded Setup (Windows only)
The Pilot-CAN is delivered ready to be used either with four wire tails or with one DE-9 ("9 pin serial port" style) connector that powers the unit and provides CAN connectivity.
The Pilot-CAN requires between 5V and 24V power connection and can be run directly off USB power or a car battery. It interfaces to the CAN bus and delivers driver data direct to the bus. All sensors, data rates and messages can be changed using a small but powerful Windows application; as supplied, or when reconfigured, the Pilot-CAN requires no user intervention.
|Dimensions||50mm x 50mm x 20mm|
|Weight||65 grams (plus connectors)|
|Required Power||VIN = 5V to 24V|
|Consumption||50mA typ., 80mA max.|
|ANT||ANT, ANT+ profiles (heart rate etc)|
|BLE||Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth 4)|
|CAN Output||2.0B, ISO 11898, up to 1MHz|
As standard, out of the box, the Pilot-CAN is configured as a heart rate interface and will deliver the following channels:
- Heart rate
- Heart rate variability
- R-R intervals (if available from wearable)
- Stress index
- Energy/Calorie burn
It can easily be reconfigured for any other supported ANT/BLE sensor to collect, for example, bike speed and cadence.
