just look around the ecmaster product.  Wouldnt this can expansion be anothet solution with g4 to get all other gauges connected over can work?  

Can you clarify what you want to do? The "CAN Expansion" module you linked to is actually just a serial to CAN adapter - it is used to add some CAN functionality to the EMU ecu that didnt have built-in CAN bus hardware.  You dont need it with our ECU as we have CAN bus built in already.

I can now confirm we that we have the Ecumaster EGT to CAN device working with any G4+ ECU.

I will aim to get some instructions and support files into the next release of PC link but if anyone wants to use one in the mean time they can PM me for set up help.

@Adamw I have just got hold of one of these units, any chance you could share the set up info as i did't receive any documentation with the unit. I was planning to add this to the same CAN channel as the Link CAN lambda module, whats the best way of achieving this? Thanks in advance.

I'm trying to get one of these ECUmaster EGT to CAN modules to communicate with my Megasquirt MS2 V3.0 ecu...... I'm hoping to find some info in the 2 files below to help me get the ECUmaster and Megasquirt talking.....I can't seem to find a program that will open, or convert, the files to a "normal" extension. Word, PDF, ect ect .......Any help available?

OR, if someone here has gone through this already and can help that would be great !!!

Thanks for your time, Dave

I have no idea of how configurable the CAN is in a MS2, but the ECUmaster EGT CAN format is freely available in their EMU software help file.   You can open those "link CAN stream" files in our PC Link software (CAN setup).  But I will give you a screen shot of one anyway.

So, the first 4 EGT's are sent with ID 1552 (decimal), the 2nd lot of 4 are sent with ID 1553.  I think bitrate is configurable in their software but the default is 1Mbit/s.  8byte frame, 2 bytes per egt, least significant byte first.  Scaling is 1bit=1°C

This is the two main setup screens for Megasquirt CAN....I apologize for the HUGE screen shots....Can you tell from the photos what I need to change to try and get the EGT/CAN module to communicate with Megasquirt?

You should be asking this on a Megasquirt forum, it is not really our job to support a competitors product.

Sorry, I read this in your earlier post and thought you could offer some guidance with this..... I've asked several times on the MS boards without success...I thought if I knew what exactly was coming out of the ECUMaster module I'd have a better chance of getting it and my MS ecu communicating.....

But, since I'm apparently not going to be able to use this with MS.....I have a brand new unit for sale cheap since it will work on you guys stuff....let me know it'll be 1/2 price...

Thanks for you time, Dave
