Autel US Launches CAN FD Adapter

Autel US Launches CAN FD Adapter

The adapter connects to compatible vehicle communication interfaces (VCIs).

Autel US has launched a CAN FD adapter that connects to compatible vehicle communication interfaces (VCIs) to enable its tablets to communicate via the CAN FD communications protocol and diagnose the vehicle.

Vehicles currently using this faster CAN FD (CAN flexible data-rate) protocol include many General Motors and Ford 2019 and 2020 vehicles. CAN FD is one of the newer communication protocols, noted for being faster, more reliable and more secure.

Autel’s MX808, MS905, MS906, MS906BT, MS906TS, MS908, MS908S, MS908P, MS908SP, MSELITE, IM508 and IM608 tablets will be able to diagnose CAN-FD-equipped vehicles when the adapter is plugged into the VCI directly, as in the case of the smaller VCI units, or into the OBD II cable that is connected to the larger VCIs and into the vehicle’s OBD II port, according to Autel.

Autel’s latest MaxiSYS tablet releases – the MaxiSYS Ultra, MaxiSYS 919 and MaxiSYS 909 – do not need the CAN FD adapter to communicate CAN FD-equipped vehicles, as these new tablets come with enhanced VCIs that include many of the new protocols including CAN FD.

Autel’s CAN FD adapter can be purchased through any of Autel’s authorized distributors or retailers.
