CAN-Communicator-2A and 3A Gauges (C-COM 2A & 3A)


Specs and features for the 2A and 3A gauges are the same except one is a 2-inch gauge and the other a 3-inch gauge. They connect directly to the J1939 CAN data bus and are robustly packaged. Ideal for stand-alone applications, they give the manufacturer the freedom to add instrumentation anywhere in a vehicle. They can be specified to read out as a speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, pressure gauge, etc., or as a completely custom readout.


  • Direct J1939 CAN communication
  • Heavy duty stepper motor drive (high G force)
  • Backlighting controllable with either CAN bus or PWM input
  • Sealed to IP67 specifications front and rear

  • Overview +

    AMETEK VIS' C-COM 2A and 3A gauges are included in the CAN-Communicator family of products. These rugged and versatile gauges are part of a modular system that can satisfy the instrumentation requirements for all vehicle platforms.

    The C-COM 2A and 3A can be used independently as direct read J1939 CAN gauges, or as part of the C-COM Advanced Instrumentation system.

    The gauges are sealed to IP67 specifications both front and rear. C-COM 2A and 3A operate from 9 to 32 volts DC and include a multi-option input that can be used for backlighting, or as a resistive or analog input.

    Designed to withstand harsh conditions typical of off-road environments, the 2A and 3A gauges meet all SAE J1455 and J1113 requirements for vehicular instrumentation.
