1708Crocodile is connected to A and B wires of J1708 (SAE 1587) data bus without damaging wire insulation. 1708Crocodile reads data from J1708 bus without electrical contact with the wires. On the output 1708Crocodile reproduces the same signal as it was read in J1708 bus, e.g. no processing or alteration occurs.

1708Crocodile is designed for safe data reading from J1708 bus (SAE J1587) of vehicles. 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 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.
