AEM 6 Channel CAN Sensor Module

Add Channels to CD Carbon Dash

AEM’s 6 Channel CAN Sensor Module (PN 30-2226) provides an affordable and easy way to add temperature, pressure, fuel level, and tachometer signals on to a CD Carbon Digital dash through AEMnet CAN bus.

It supports the Bosch CAN 2.0b standard, making it compatible with many third-party devices that accept a programmable CAN bus input, which also allows you to add additional channels to a non-AEM ECU, dash or logger.

Carbureted Vehicles – The 6 Channel CAN Sensor Module provides the basic channels that users need to get data onto a CD Carbon Digital Dash in a carbureted vehicle, including tachometer, fuel level, and pressure/temp sensors. Vehicle speed can be achieved by using a GPS-enabled dash or by adding a Vehicle Dynamics Module.

08-Up Stock/Reflashed ECUs – This module is the perfect add-on for CD Carbon Dash owners who are sending channels to a CD Carbon Dash from an OBDII CAN stock ECU and want to add additional channels that are not available through the factory CAN stream.

Standalone CAN-based EFI – Racers who are using a non-AEM CAN-based programmable ECU and have consumed all of the inputs can use this module to add additional channels to the dash that they want to see or log (logging requires CD Carbon Logging Dash).

AEM CD-7 Dash in Car Craft’s Truck Norris

Here’s an video from last year that has an AEM CD-7 Dash installed in Car Craft’s Truck Norris, C10, a fire-breathing, Blueprint Engines 540BB-equipped 1967 C10 Pickup. Although the engine is controlled by an Infinity ECU, this video shows how a CD Dash can be installed in any vehicle – even carbureted – with the addition of AEM’s 22 Channel CAN Sensor Module.
