The ConsuLab MP-1918-1D is a CAN Bus Multiplex trainer that communicates in J-1939 protocol. Digital and analog inputs and outputs can be activated. Analog signals can be displayed using the J-1939 display. The trainer utilizes the “Moduponent®” design feature which allows unlimited expansion capabilities. This unit is equipped with an integrated electronic fault box containing 12 faults.

The training aid includes a complete curriculum to make teaching CAN Bus as easy as possible.

The CAN Bus training system can be purchased as a single-sided (-1S) or double-sided (-1D) training system, or used in combination with the ConsuLab Automotive Lighting System trainer CL-MP-1918.
