Dearborn Netbridge Quad CAN Interface

The Netbridge Is A Versatile 4 Channel CAN Interface with Both SAE J2534 and TMC RP1210C Device Drivers for Vehicle Network Communication.

It provides incomparable engineering & development capabilities and access to standards-based vehicle applications commonly used for EOL Testing, ECU prototyping and other development activities.

Netbridge is the perfect device for engineers that prefer to write their own software.

  • Fully supports the SAE J2534 standard for Pass-Thru Reprogramming of OBDII-compliant vehicles and is fully TMC RP1210 A/B/C compliant.
  • Examples of both API’s are easily called by third-party applications like MatLab and LabVIEW using the DLL’s provided with the software.

The Netbridge comes with both a J2534 and RP1210 software packages that can be used right out of the box:

DG DLM 2, a free J2534 CAN-based data monitoring and analysis tool for CAN traffic.
DG Diagnostics, a free RP1210 heavy-duty J1939 diagnostic software package!
