ERM’s OBDII and CANBUS Interface for Vehicle Diagnostic solution consists of two full featured data retrievers and analyzers with a programmable rule engine for maximum vehicle diagnostics and monitoring.

ERM offers two kinds of devices for OBDII and CANBUS related data retrieval and analysis:

  • eData
  • eCAN

The eData/eCAN package incorporates a configurable natural language-like rule based data analyzer allowing reading and interfacing the required data/parameters read from a OBDII and CANBUS interface.

The OBDII and CANBUS Interface for Vehicle Diagnostic devices eData and eCAN also include a sophisticated scenario alert engine allowing the programming of any combination of events, resulting in an alert mechanism for maximum diagnostics and monitoring of the supervised vehicle.

Using the OBDII and CANBUS Interface for Vehicle Diagnostic devices eData/eCAN units, the data will be retrieved and forwarded through ERM’s StarLink tracking and telematics device to a back office software server, where it can be analyzed.


The eData unit is intended to read several CANBUS protocols such as OBD protocols, FMSJ1708, J1939 and more.

Connection interface:

The eData unit has two connectors: a 4-pin connector, including power ignition and eNet. It is normally connected directly to the ERM tracking and telematics device. The second connector is a 6-pin connector to additional devices such as MagiCAN or a second eData unit.



The eCAN unit uses a non-intrusive connection to the CANBUS/OBD wires.
With the eCAN you can configure your system to receive alerts based on every combination of data extracted from CANBUS (read-only).

Connection interface:

The OBDII and CANBUS Interface for Vehicle Diagnostic eCAN device has a single 4-wire connector including power, ground, eNet and ignition. Normally it is connected directly or through an EDA (External Device Adaptor) to ERM tracking and telematics devices.
